I've read both of those, the survival guide really did get a bit in-depth at points though! Haha.
Aparently World War Z may be getting made into a film at some point.

PostSubject: The last book you read was ...   Wed Jun 17, 2009 7:16 pm

As part of the TGA feature in the new Rock Sound magazine (see elsewhere on this board), each of the guys answers the question 'The last book you read was?'

Brian: 'The Problem of Pain' by C.S. Lewis
Benny: 'Slam' by Nick Hornby
Alex L.: 'Redemption Song - The Ballad of Joe Strummer' by Chris Salewicz
Alex R.: 'Double Duce' by Aaron Cometbus

So what was the last book YOU read (and if you're embarrassed by that silly thriller you slipped in, then don't mention it ...)?

Here's mine: 'The Genius of Shakespeare' by Jonathan Bate (but prior to that I read 'The Magicians' Guild' by Tudi Cavanan).

The last book I read was The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. It was a spectacular book. I'd highly recommend it.

I'm afraid with University work I don't get chance to read that may books of my own choosing these days. The last book I read was probably an academic one!

The last book I read was Microeconomics: A Modern Approach.

Had my exam for that today and am glad to say that reading it once was more than enough.

Probably gonna get a Jim Morrison or Joe Stummer/Clash biography for the holidays.

Just finished Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. It was recommended to me because I love 1984 so much, I enjoyed Brave New World but not quite as much!
I'm currently reading a book of music journalist Mick Wall's best articles from the 80s/90s. There's some pretty cool stuff in it.

Likewise I think mine was Geopolitical reader which I still have to pay a massive fine on.

Last book of my choosing was Shock doctrine by Naomi Kline real interesting look into the flaws of the global capitalist system.

Generation Kill by Evan Wright - excellent - got hooked on the TV series when in the States last year and this is even better.

Now re-reading Cancer Ward by Solzhenitsyn

I'm currently reading Gai Jin by James Clavell, it's taken me a while to get into it - nearly up to page 500 and it has about 1200! Probably my longest book.

Before that I read Tai Pan, also by James Clavell, which was brilliant.

Anyone else like Clavell?
I'm enjoying books set in Japan and China at the moment.

At the moment I'm reading Doctor Dealer by Mark Bowden.

It was recommended to me by a friend, who got me really excited about it, but it's kind of a let down. It's not really that exciting and author's writing style isn't that good (while it's readable, it feels rushed and I feel more depth is needed plus it kinda feels like he's writing for a movie screenplay).

It also didn't help that I had such high expectations on the recommendation of my friend. It sorta feels like a a book I would've really enjoyed a year or two ago. I guess I'll see how it goes as I read more but it's not looking too flash at this stage.

Next read is gonna be Marching Powder, I've already read it but it was totally bad ass, it deserves another read.

A place to talk about all things written!

What's your favourite book? Have you got any books to recommend to others? What are you reading right now?

I thought it would also be quite cool to have a book club of some sort, and then we (those who are interested) can discuss the book we've all just read.

I personally absolutely love The Stand by Stephen King. I recomend it for anyone who wishes to get into King's books.
