  1. I've read this and enjoyed it. It was a very gripping story and I liked the way nothing was black and white; I thought that was quite realistic.
  2. I couldn't agree more! It's kind of a "quiet" novel and very under-rated, but it is very cleverly done. I enjoyed it.
  3. I hated The Tommyknockers and have never re-read it. But that's just my opinion!
  4. I'm about 150 pages in and enjoying it so far. I'm finding it to be a good page-turner that caught my interest straight away, unlike his last two which I gave up on very quickly and are still languishing unread on my bookcase. I've heard the ending is rubbish, but still... I'll find out for myself. I really hate two characters already, but they're two the reader is supposed to hate so that's okay.
  5. I just wanted to briefly say that I really enjoyed Unseen Academicals. Football is a subject ripe for mickey-taking, and Terry really wrung the humour and satire out of it. I liked the characters of Glenda and Mr Nutt, and I loved the fact that there was slightly more Vetinari in it than usual (he's one of my favourite characters). Great!
  6. Thanks for the birthday message. And, since I'm noticing now that you had a birthday, too, recently, happy (very late) birthday to you as well. :)

  7. Now I've bought my copy, I see what you mean Heather! The **** thing's the size of a housebrick! I'm just glad I didn't buy the hardback copy - I'd probably need a crane to lift it.
  8. Happy Birthday!

  9. Happy Birthday!

  10. I'm about halfway through it and loving it so far!
  11. Happy Birthday! :balloons:

    Yes!! Thank you CaliLily. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Smith fans!
  13. I hate all the HSBC ads, particularly the one they've just brought back where the guy goes to investigate why the washing machines are so popular in India. The whole look of it is horrible and when he pulls the face at the end with the orange moustache it makes me feel ill. Eww. The Halifax ones also get instantly muted whenever they come on, and I'm not keen on the patronising ones (is it Natwest?) where the guy is growing money and the girl is trying to keep plates spinning.
  14. I was just going to say that I really hate the Flake advert! Something about the way everything's billowing about makes me feel slightly nauseous for some reason!
  15. Hope you had a Happy Birthday! :balloons:
