Not sure it's the best book i've ever read as I read loads and will forgot a lot of great ones but Threat Vector by Tom Clancy is brilliant.

David Morrisey was on 6 music earlier talking about this

Apparently, the book is amazing. I'm intrigued.

Please note: prior to hitting the post button, I've double checked for anything that could be construed as "Anti Semitic" and to the best of my knowledge it isn't. Anything deemed to be of a Xenophobic nature is therefore purely accidental or down to your own misconstruing.

I dare say some nostalgia at work here as it's been a while.

Stoner.


Yep. Stoner is the dog's.

But you have to be a regular and therefore patient reader to get how incredible it is.

Third for Stoner.

If it's only one book then it's got to be If This Is A Man by Primo Levi. An amazing description of his time at Auschwitz that explains the experience in logical yet human terms. In his mind, there are people who adapt and there are people who die. Think I've read it 7 or 8 times by now.

My version also includes The Truce which is his fantastic, strange-as-fück journey back to Italy via the Soviet Union. Fascinating description of how a man and a world emerge from madness and death to rediscover life.

If you haven't read it, then get a copy before you next buy milk.

It would change on different days I suppose, but the Last Tommy, Harry Patch is a must read.

The Unicorn Road by Martin Davies.

Features a tragic love story, the Great Khan, a plot to topple the Pope, a scholar searching for mythical creatures and a father trying to uncover the whereabouts of his missing son.

It's wonderful.

The girl with the Dragon tatoo. But you will then want to read the other two of the trilogy.

The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared - quite silly but amusing.

If you are into WW2 stuff I can recommend Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare - quite astonishing stories.

Not yet. You'd recommend?

Funnily enough, I just read Augustus. Not quite the same emotional punch as Stoner but feck me he's good at describing the empty cellar of lost love.

If you're into Game of Thrones-type stuff, try Egil's Saga, a tale of Norwegians and Icelanders in the 9th to 11th centuries (probably written a couple of hundred years later, tha author is unknown, but may be the celebrated Snorri Sturluson).

The full text (translated into English) is available online: http://sagadb.org/egils_saga.en

I liked the bit where he found his dream job in the apple orchard. Still brings a lump to the throat.

I'd definitely recommend. It's more of a conventional story than Stoner but it's beautifully told, I found it pretty engrossing.

I'm currently near the end of From Beirut to Jerusalem by Thomas Friedman. It's a fantastic insight in to the conflicts in the Middle East. Quite old now but a great read. Will make you re-evaluate what you believe about the conflict whichever standpoint you come from.
