    Wow - great thread but some intimidating highbrow type stuff being read (by others).

    My trashy addition: The last book(s) I read was 'The Dreaming Void' series by Peter Hamilton (best current science fiction writer in the UK). Great trilogy -9/10

    Books read - Shankly The Lost Diary by Bill Shankly - (7.5/10 rating) and At the End of the Storm: The Remarkable Story of Liverpool FC's Greatest Ever League Title Triumph - 1946/47 by Gary Shaw And Mark Platt - (8.5/10 rating)

    Shankly The Lost Diary by Bill Shankly - This is a interesting read took from the Football Echo, that Shankly wrote in the summer, when we where back in the top flight, it tells the story of the early years under Shankly, that was also a very enjoyable book to read and would be for any LFC supporter.

    At the End of the Storm: The Remarkable Story of Liverpool FC's Greatest Ever League Title Triumph - 1946/47 by Gary Shaw And Mark Platt - This is my favorite of the two books, because you get the USA tour and every game that season, the mighty Albert Stubbins who come from the north east who was born in Wallsend and played for Newcastle United and Liverpool FC, he played well for us and scored some important goals that season on the road to the title, it's a great book for LFC fans who want to learn a little about the club, before the club, become a true giant of a team in the UK.

    Thanks a lot for chipping in guys.I'm sure your inputs will help others to find a good book which at times can be time consuming.

    My cousin is an avid reader and his house is filled with books covering almost all the subjects.

    Just picked up a book called -

    Title - The Kind Worth Killing
    Author - Peter Swanson
    Classification - Fiction

    Looks like a thriller.Hopefully will finish it off in three to four days.

    P.S - Keep those suggestions,reviews,ratings coming.
    Cheers!!

    Always downplaying the post.
    You are a worthy contributor,mate.

    The cousin i was talking about is a big fan of Peter Hamilton's writing.
    He has read almost all of his books,currently reading - Pandora's Star and
    his younger brother who's almost a replica of my cousin is reading - The Abyss Beyond Dreams.

    They both share a lot of similarities.They both are big time fans of Ayn Rand too.

    The Girl on the Train.

    2/5.

    Supposed to be a thriller. I only picked it up off the chart shelf because I was going away on holiday. Anyway, I didn't find it very thrilling.

    Currently reading the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. The first two i quite liked but just cant get into the third one at all. Will maybe try to get into it again soon but having just had a baby finding time is difficult enough!

    I'm just on Winters Heart (same series )at the moment after it being recommended on here. I'm loving it. 4.5/5 (Lost 1/2 a point because trying to remember what every character is doing (beyond the main characters) is frankly baffling).

    Just finished Pep Confidential, the inside story on Guardiola's first season at Bayern. Great read and a fascinating insight into the mind of the man.

    About to read The Damned United just because everyone else seems to have done and I never got round to it.

    Yeah - Great series, lots of characters - lots happening - but it was a story I enjoyed from the 1st word of book one to the last word of book fourteen....

    Keeping track of the White Tower was hard work

    Me too - did the classics when I was younger but now I just want escapism and am in the phase of mainly sic-fi and horror!

    Peter Hamilton is great but you've got to like big books with him (600-900 pages per book). Check out the one rollercoaster mentioned - Pandoras Star (2-books) - it is set before the dreaming void and probably should be read first...

    Any sci-fi reccomendation?

    Pandoras star - great book! First time I ever heard of a Dyson Sphere - now the term seems to be everywhere - funny how that happens when you learn new word or term. Like another word that I heard in a movie called vanishing on 7th street a few days ago - the word was 'CROATIAN'. Now it's everywhere.

    Just looked up Ayn Rand - interesting - i know of the Fountainhead but never read - think i will add it to my list! Ta

    First one is great (8/10), but couldn't get into the second. FYI - they made a film of the first one - Steven Sommers, the Director, is a fan (interesting take on the Bodachs!). Really strange when you watch a film after reading the book..

    The average Sidney Sheldon reader is now actually dead, and most YA fiction fans are pubescent 11 year old girls, or halfwits.
