Quarantine – Jim Crace

At last, a Jesus story that’s actually well written, captivating, and isn’t ‘pretending’ to be historical fact.   A good one for all you baby Jesus fans at lent, me thinks.

Will definitely give it a re-read sometime and write a proper review.

She Wore Only White – Dörthe Binkert

I have no idea why i bought this book, as at a glance it appears completely outside of my normal reading spectrum.

Based around a true story, which is always a good grounder for any story.   I may have to give it another read sometime and do a real review of it.   In the meanwhile though, don’t let my lack of review put you off, it’s well worth a read.   In fact, i enjoyed it so much that i bought Dörthe’s second book ‘Portrait of a Girl’ and happily added it to ‘The Pile’.

Life Of Pi – Yann Martel

What an utter mess the film made of this incredible book.

I’m not sure i’ve ever been hit by such a powerful and moving ending in any book i’ve ever read as much as the one in this. I’m ever so glad i didn’t watch that crappy film first, it would have totally ruined the book experience.

If you consider what people thought of the nazis turning books into flame and smoke, then what should we think of people who take great literature and turn it into 2 dimensional shit?

I’ll write a proper review of this book when i re-read it in a few years time: i need to let my experience of the film get washed out good and proper before i go back to the book.

I do hope the people that made that 2 dimensional shit out of this wonderful book come across this page.

Interview With The Vampire – Anne Rice

Great book, really great series, but it’s off to the boneyard until Anne can get her shit together and put the whole series on Kindle.   F**king ridiculous that they haven’t Kindled the whole series after all this time.
