It's an OK ---> good, Rankin, but I much prefer the OMally/Pooley books.

Me too Bouncy that's your man for the funniest books, I have just started it and I'm led to believe I have a cameo appearance in it. :lol:
But there is one more in that series "THE CHICKENS OF ATLANTIS AND OTHER FOUL AND FILTHY FIENDS" I am about to begin the last in the series (named above). Its subtitle will be "The autobiography of a Victorian time-traveling monkey butler." Now, if I can just get it written before J. FFraud nicks the idea (allegedly)
Tentatively it should be published on 19 Sept 2013. :mrgreen:

The whole series of his war memoires are brilliant. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Just started Merry Christmas Alex Cross. They're usually good books. Waiting for Whispers Under Ground to come in at the library.

Just finished Life of Pi, which was pretty good alround and had an amazing ending. Very impressed with that one.

Also finally finished 50 Shades of Grey. Really, really, really awful. I don't see why so many people love this book. It's not the subject matter that's bothersome, just that it's sooooo badly written it hurts your eyes and brain.
