I enjoyed Lamb too, one of his better ones. I bought my dad Fool for christmas, I'd forgotten how much swearing there was in it :oops: But that's a good one too.

I've just finished 'The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared'. It's lovely and funny :D

Next I'll be reading Janet Evanovich's Eleven on Top.

Good to hear! I was wondering about that one.

Re: Christopher Moore books, I loved Practical Demonkeeping, Sacre Bleu and Dirty Job too! The only one of his that I remember not enjoying was Fluke.

Read another Merrily Watkins book. Again, not fabulous, but a good mystery and something to read. Although, he does give some of his characters horrible lines, especially the new-agey ones, something like "He didn't feel immersed in the residual Templarism of the area." Where's that little gagging smiley?

Oh, that's funny. Fluke is one of my favorites. I think my least favorite was the one set on an island with the cargo cult theme. Forgot its name.

Oh, wait... Island of the Sequined Love Nun I think? Something like that. Yes, that one was bad. Maybe I'll give Fluke another try. It's been a really long time since I've read it.

I loved Island of the Sequinned Love Nun! It was one of my favourites! :lol: The vampire ones lost momentum by the second, and I haven't read the third yet. Mr Dotsie complained about it all the way through, so I haven't got round to it yet.

Fluke I remember, but I can't remember if I liked it or not... :?

It was the first Moore I read. For me I guess it had a similar effect as reading Thief of Time--the first randomly selected book of a prolific author, said book happening to be a more or less standalone book compared to the author's more established series. Maybe I liked it as much as I did because it was the first book of his I read, same as I did TOT.

I've just finished a book on life in the year 1000, a short history book packed full of interesting details. To take one small example, I keep forgetting that rabbits are a Norman import.

I'm now half way through The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks, which I'm finding engrossing. Quite a strange book, but it works because it has it's own crazy internal logic.
