  2. Your Book Activity - July 2013

    Mid way through the good guy by dean koontz, a decent thriller thus far.
  3. Your Book Activity ~ April 2013

    Only 50 pages left of The Dark Tower,really wanted to finish it last night but it was already 4:30am,next up will probably be Farenheit 451 as its been in my TBR forever. After that i will be completeing the dark tower series with The wind through the keyhole. simon
  4. Your Book Activity ~ February 2013

    Picking up some more bret easton ellis from waterstones tommorow,imperial bedrooms and rules of attraction. They didnt have Lunar park and glamarama in my local so i will order them when i pick these up. Ive read Less than Zero and American psycho and was fascinated without really knowing why. I just think the writing is so good i just got sucked right in. simon
  5. Amazon...what do you make of this?

    I used to use amazon all the time but what i do now is find books on amazon (much better site than waterstones) and once i have found what i want use watersones reserve & collect. That way i get to nip into waterstones shop but get the internet price

  8. Your Book Activity ~ June 2012

    Reading The Travelling Vampyre show by Richard Laymon,only 60 pages to go and I don't want it to end as its a brilliant read Simon
  9. Swan Song or Odd Thomas?

    Hi there, I have read both and loved them both too,Odd had be laughing out loud at times,as for swan song well that was incredible,as you say it is a long one but I blazed through it and I'm not a quick reader by any stretch.......enjoy swan song I think you will Simon
  10. Just finished this book,what can I say other than superb from cover to cover,rarely I am moved by a book but this moved me especially the last quarter.Read all his fathers (stephen king) books and wasnt sure how this would go down but Joe Hill done brilliant especially for a debut novel,will be checking out 'Horns' very soon indeed.
  11. Your book activity in 2012

    Started Brother Odd by Koontz last night,I'm only 40 pages in but it hasnt got the feel of the first 2 books yet which had me gripped from the get go,anyway like I say only a few chapters in so hopefully it will get me soon enough. Simon

    Half way through Less than zero by bret easton ellis and enjoying it but can't as yet say why really other than like American psycho its just very very good writing. Simon
  13. Stephen King

    Your welcome julie,I'm sure your going to enjoy the book and looking forward to your comments when you have read it. Thanks also Bobbly,I tend to get a bit of tunnel vision when it comes to Mr King...a bit like supporting your soccer team,they are always the best even when they are not playing well lol. Simon
  14. Stephen King

    hi julie,I read this a few months back and thought it was brilliant,for me it read very much like the King's early works.Despite its mammoth size I found it fast paced and I flew through it despite not being a very fast reader myself. The book kicks right off from the get go and doesnt let up really.I would easily give it 9/10,but them I'm a King freak so please take that into account lol. Simon

    Finished Dark Tower V wolves of the calla yesterday and have started Forever Odd by Dean Koontz,the second book in the Odd Thomas series simon
  18. Your Book Activity Today ~ Thread 15

    Finished Odd Thomas (what a moving end)loved it though,was a great book and will be reading the rest of the series. Now after a long time away from Rolands quest for the Dark Tower I am after probably 8 yesrs or after when I read Wizard and Glass (book IV) I have finally got around to reading book V Wolves of the Calla. I debated wether or not to start again with the first four books in the series but opted for just diving right back into wolves.Luckily I have retained much from the first 4 books so shouldn't be a problem.
  19. Hi. ^__^

    Hi Elly,welcome to the forum,I'm also a massive stephen king fan,a non king book I would recommend and I read it recently was Swan song by Rober mccammon,a massive book but I literally bulldozed my way through it it was so good. Currently reading my first book by Dean Koontz and its Odd Thomas,again its excellent so far. Simon
  20. Your Book Activity Today ~ Thread 15

    Continuing with Odd Thomas,I must say I'm really enjoying it and love the short chapter format,I got the whole "read just one more chapter"thing going on with this book.

  24. Your Book Activity Today ~ Thread 15

    Just finished the bone collector (huge break due to house move etc)and what a twist right at the end,I never saw that coming at all.Now I can't decide what to read next,at the moment its a toss up between American Psycho or Odd Thomas?????. Simon
  25. Hi, just joined!

    Welcome Steve,I think you may enjoy the dark tower series by stephen king,super series IMHO of course,big SK fan here so probably a little biased One thing with the King as a new reader of his work there is no shortage of choice. Simon
