Edgar Allan Poe : Tales of suspense.& Raymond E Fiest : Magician.
It was written by a chap called Owen jones
I believe he's also writes the guardian newspaper, he's a huge Corbyn supporter and has got left wing ideas.
He's very anti establishment aswell so you can imagine what the book is like. i must say it was a very interesting read, would certainly recommend it if your into politics.
Having been approached numerous times in my life by people trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge I thought maybe it was a good idea for me to read David McCullough's The Great Bridge - The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Interesting account of life in New York after the Civil War during the Boss Tweed era.
I only admit falling for that scam once, or maybe twice.
"My Short Century" by Lorna Arnold. She was a noted historian for the UK Atomic Energy Authority and had a wealth of knowledge with regards to the UK Atomic and Hydrogen bomb development and tests, also Windscale and UK atomic energy and the accident there. The book tells of her childhood, education and upbringing, working for the war office during and after WW2, Also her relationship with scientists and physicists like Rudolph Peierls, William Penney, Edward Teller etc... She knew them all, died a couple of years ago just short of 100 years old
Just started reading this
I have that and have read it numerous times. Excellent read
I am reading American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis.
Patrick Bateman impressed me with his knowledge about his life-style every-day products, but disappointed me with his clothing and shaving opinions. lol
Late to the party again! No doubt several years after keener readers but I have just finished The Millennium Trilogy by Steig Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the two subsequent books. Quite the best read I have had for several years.
I'm about to start The Girl in the Spiders Web which is supposed to be the 4th one in the series, but it wasn't written by the same author
I find Roman history fascinating so am reading Dynasty The Rise and Fall of the House of Caesar by Tom Holland.
About to start The Once And Future King. I am a sucker for the Arthurian Legend.
