Anyone read Money by Martin Amis? Been hearing it's quite a funny read.

I'm just gonna start on Freakonomics till I get a copy of Money.

Never mind read it, Luke has made mad passionate love to it, tenderly caressing its pages before bringing it to rest on his pillow and burrowing his head in its leaves.

Any reccomendations of these particular type of plots:

- Protagonist from nothing to huge empire (Scarface/The Business style) (Doesn't have to be soley drugs related lol)
- Protagonist womaniser preferably British (Alfie style No James Bond)

Honestly no hate buddy I just find it great that you'd be that specific. Man knows what he likes and likes what he knows.

I didn't know there was a specific way to source books to read.

Just at this moment I wanted to read something along those lines. it was just a basic outline.

Isn't it just like finding a film to watch in essence?!

Yeah fine do it by genre but surely not by plot point? In fact this has given me such a great idea.

Kindle make your own adventure books for adults.

Don't anybody steal it yeah?

fellow fuker turned me onto this guy called Matthew Fellowgard's book Heartland. been on the hunt for more from him, but can't seem to find anything locally. i'd recommended it though
