Appreciate this is horrendously off-topic (I'm sure we could bring it back with some choice quotes from Keane/Zlatan/SAF books), however, what are some of your favourite books, and has anybody picked up any decent ones recently?
I used to be a voracious reader, alas, with work and family commitments; I really struggled to find the time over the last 12 months or so. Happily, I've been back at it!
I recently read what was an award-winning horror in 'The Loney', which I found to be absolute trash! Really well written, but for me, the story lacked substance, was categorised entirely misleadingly, and failed to deliver on some quite intriguing setup and foreshadowing. "Trash" is probably harsh, as I suppose I wouldn't have been left so disappointed if there weren't an element of tension and build-up in its craft.
In the same week, I read 'Ready Player One' on the recommendation of my brother. Very different to the above and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Quite the contrast in style as well as genre, as it seemed the book wasn't technically brilliant, but I thought the concept was quite captivating and I look forward to the Stephen Spielberg film coming in March this year.
I recall Admin1 and a few other posters suggesting some brilliant books on the financial crash and economics to me a few years ago, so thought I'd ask you all for some in whichever genre you wish!
