i remember reading 1984 at a real bad time, seemed to real and depressing lol

I mainly like non-fiction books, mainly crime and drugs, i find it well interesting.

Anyone read The Damage Done? Its about an ozzie that gets caught smuggling heroin in thailand, very provacative and moving, reading about his struggles in tough prisons.

all very good reads. Stephen Frys books are quite entertaining too if you like him

Think i'm gonna try Bret Easton Ellis... heard a few people recommend his books and they look intriguing.
Thanks for all the suggestions so far!

Good idea for a thread :2thumbs:

Stephen Frys new book is awesome, really into that atm.

Also re-reading Mr.Nice again too.

Recently finished Gordon Ramsays autobiography, which was very interesting & actually quite inspiring.

Also, any Jeremy Clarkson book, fucking massive bellend, but the guy can write, no doubt & what is does write is both clever & funny as fuck.

I bought a load of old paperbacks last month too - Fear & Loathing, Naked Lunch & The Beach, looking forward to Naked Lunch, but read the others before...
