    "Papillon", Henri Charriere.
    I have read that all the events in the book did happen but not necessarily to the author, either way it's a damn good read.

  4. 'Devil May Care' Sebastian Faulks. Faulks writing Bond in the style of Ian Fleming. Very entertaining!

    I had read the first part of A Song Of Ice And Fire (A Game Of Thrones) in the army and after 9 months I finally started the second part (A Clash Of Kings). So easy to read, even though I have watched the series. This is what amazes me about the author.

    Not a very glamourous reading, but it is truly a fantastic book: the Oxford Collocations Dictionary.

    I managed to grab a PDF version (930 pages... Definitely not the kind of book you can carry in a hard copy form). Likely the best reading to improve your English and make it sound "natural"; I wish I had known this book while preparing my English exams/certifications.

    Just finished 'The House of The Sleeping Beauties' by Yasunari Kawabata, what a weird book, didn't enjoy it at all. Three very odd short stories. The book inspired the one I am currently in the middle of, I read it a few years ago and want to give it a re-read to see if it is different to how I remember. So far it is night and day to the previous book.

    Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I haven't read him for a few years but within the first few pages I can see why he is my favourite author.
