• David Mitchell - Cloud Atlas

    Brilliant. It jumps around alot and you kind of only start to get it half way through. Worth it anyway.
  • Roald Dahl - Boy

    The first half of Roald Dahl's autobiography and officially one of my favourite books. This was a gift from Natalie in 2005 and is a first edition. I've never read this copy (too scared I'll crease a page).
  • Toby Young - How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

    A great book on glossy mag journalism and the New York scene... and how to fuck up.
  • Jan Martel - Life of Pi

    A Booker prize winner. Boy gets stuck on a raft with a zebra and a tiger. BRILLIANT ENDING!
  • Allan and Barbara Pease - Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps

    This was recommended to me by Adrian during a period when I was stuggling to understand the female of the species. It didn't help.
  • Mil Millington - Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About.

    The funniest book EVER. Seriously. And by a blogger! I laughed out loud on every page.

    Actually I don't think Mil refers to himself as a 'blogger'?
  • Robert Rankin - The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse

    How can you not love a story set in Toy City with a character named Eddie Bear (who also loves heavy drinking and gratuitous sex).
  • J.D. Salinger - The Catcher in the Rye

    A classic. Personally I think it's a great story, but not all it's cracked up to be.
  • Tom Holt - Only Human

    Okay. Not his best work.
  • Ewan McGregor and Charles Boorman - Long Way Round

    Two actors ride big motorcycles around the world. Great narrative and fantastic reading if you're even half way interested in eastern Europe.
  • Tom Wolfe - Bonfire of the Vanities

    FANTASTIC story. I loved this book. A real epic novel based on observations of 1980's New York.
  • Dean Koontz - Odd Thomas

    Another great story. Not a heavy book by any means, and as with all Koontz novels the characters are fleshed out to such detail that they become complete believable no matter how outrageous they may actually be.
  • John Peel - Margrave of the Marshes

    Peel's biography. Part written by the man himself and then completed by his family after his death. Not quite as much about the music as I was expecting.
  • Percival Everett - American Desert

    An absolutely fantastic read. One of the most ironic novels I've read. Takes a fair few shots at organised religion along the way.
  • J.R.R Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings

    Duh. Everyone should own this book.
  • Carlos Ruiz Zafon - The Shadow of the Wind

    In my TOP 5 BOOKS OF ALL TIME. Take my word for it and read it.
  • Greg Marinovich and Joao Silver - The Bang Bang Club

    Gripping account of a group of photo journalists operating during the Apartheid struggles in South Africa. Should be compulsory reading for all South Africans born after 1975.
  • Eion Colfer - Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code

    Completely light weight. In fact it doesn't belong to me. Oops.
  • Khaled Hossieni - The Kite Runner

    Another fantastic book bought by Natalie. Set in Afghanistan before and after the Russian invasion.
  • Tom Wolfe - The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test

    Wolfe chronicles Ken Kesey (author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) and the Merry Pranksters as they pioneer the recreational uses of LSD.
