  1. I'm pretty sure in interviews he said he couldn't, due to increases in security etc. Especially in airports. However he still could of done scams of some sort, he doesn't mention it very much in the book but he did do other small scams. I believe he works in security now, making it harder for con-men to beat the system.
  2. Me too. The French prisons sounded awful!

  4. Pets ~ Part Two

    I honestly can't think of a pet that could cause less damage to you than the majority of pet snakes. I would rather be bitten by a snake than hamsters, cats, dogs, chinchillas etc. The only snakes that can cause serious injury are the very large constrictors and venomous snakes. A DWA license is required to own venomous snakes in this country.
  5. Pets ~ Part Two

    There is a group of snakes called Garter snakes (Thamnophis species) which thrive off a diet primarily of fish and worms, mice should only ever be given as an occasional thing and aren't necessary so you wouldn't have to feed them if you didn't want to. They're great snakes and the most commonly available in the UK is Thamnophis marcianus - Checkered garter snake which is a hardy snake ideal for beginners. Here's a picture from google: A great website for finding out more about them is thamnophis.com which has a very useful forums. I think you'd love it
  6. I just recently finished the Millennium trilogy (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo etc.) and I miss the characters already! Are there any series similar I can read? And what do you normally do after reading a trilogy or series of books, it's the first full series I've actually read and coming to the end is quite sad!
  7. Arthur Conan Doyle

    I've read both A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four. I have to say I didn't really enjoy A Study in Scarlet I didn't like the way it moved away from Sherlock and Watson for such a long time. On the other hand I really liked The Sign of the Four.
  8. Linwood Barclay

    I believe he's writing a sequel to No Time for Goodbye. Really looking forwards to that.
  9. Bruce Lee's Book Collection

    Yeah I really enjoyed it but I am a big fan of Bruce Lee so I'm sure that makes a difference lol.
  10. I saw this video about Bruce Lee's book collection and thought some of you may find it as interesting as I did. He clearly read a lot!
  11. Lee Child

    I think 36:00 onwards is similar to what you mean Kirsty.
  12. Cuckoo by Julia Crouch

    This is on my TBR list. It's a book my mum kept and she only keeps ones that she really likes so she must of enjoyed it. My TBR list is pretty big though so I don't know when I'll get to it hahahaha this thread has made me want to read it sooner though!
  13. Your Book Activity Jan 2013

    I buy big issue more often now too I bet their sales went up after that book was released!
  14. Worst ever film from a book?

    No, I haven't. That's interesting, are they in English or are they dubbed or subtitled?
  15. Worst ever film from a book?

    I was a bit disappointed at The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo american film adaptation. They completely changed the ending and I feel like the casting for Lisbeth Salander could of been better, someone a bit prettier In the book she is supposed to be attractive, but in a strange fascinating kind of way. I haven't watched and read enough film to book combinations to really rank them though.
