have just read

tokyo - mo hayder - excellent, recommended
angels and demons - dan brown - very good, bit hollywood in its writing, but after the dan brown hype i didnt want to read da vinci……yet
invisible monsters - Chuck Palahniuk - i dont rate it, it seemed like an attempt to shock and felt to over the top and not real enough.
love all the people - bill hicks - brilliant, any fan of comedy will literally piss themselves.

i only read on recommendation, so if anyone has anything to recommend i would appreciate it.

Haunted is pretty sick actually. good read but made my stomach churn. I only had to read the first chapter and realise that chuck paluhnuik is a very different type of author

I am in the middle of reading Killing Pablo which is amazing but a bit old non-fiction title about Pablo Escobar.

I have just read Ash Wednesday by Ethan Hawke which was very over-rated.

Best one for me though was One for my baby by Tony Parsons, superb read and felt like collapsing through exhaustion when i finished it.
