When bradbury died me an a friend at work were talking about it, and i had said i had never read Fahrenheit 451 so he lent me his copy. not too far, but interesting read. (shame the foreword had spoilers :? ) odd writing style.

Seem to remember it was not such a heavy read but nothing else about it as it's muddled with a couple of GP Taylors I read around the same time. :?
I'm determined to finish Pyramids for the 3rd (or 4th) time before i get stuck into The Long Earth. Never feel I'm doing justice to books if I try to read them in parallel.

It is a long read but not too heavy. I quite enjoyed it both times I read it . :D

It's good so far - someone was described as 'ragged as rain' and I liked that...The text isn't heavy but the book sure is xD

Just finished Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich. Good! Not as good as the Stephanie Plum books, but I still really enjoyed it. A couple parts really had me giggling too.

Next up - Long Earth. 8-)
