YES. I've read this at least 4 times in as many years. Mind blowing.

Couple on the go at the mo:

Mr. S and the Secrets of Andorra's Box - Ross 'O Carroll Kelly. Everything I'd expect so far. Brainless laugh.

Q&A - Forget Author. Only read one chapter but I have a feeling I'm going to be fairly engrossed in this one once I get into it.

Lined up: Animal Farm.

I've read Nineteen Eighty Four and it was good but I was a little underwhelmed.
But then again since it has so much acclaim and hype my expectations may have been a bit too high.

At the moment, Playstation The official magazine January 09 Issue.

Or the subtitles of Call of Duty: World at War, Fallout 3 or speech bubbles in LittleBigPlanet

Got this for Christmas..so funny. Back to loads of reading now that it's Christmas holidays... Moving onto Breaking Dawn of the twilight saga

I actually thought the Life of Pi was boring....the bit with the tiger in the boat just went on for, literally, the whole book. I kept waiting for the plot to continue only to discover..it didn't.
