Ah but so so many layers. And the craft of the book. Although, Chuck's power lies in the big twist at the end, and I guess you already know that bit.

Haven't even heard of it. Must check it out. My list of books to read is ever increasing, and I'm making such poor progress.

Awesome *adds to list*

The last one of his book that I read was Snuff. A whole book set in the waiting room of a porno shoot.

It was alright, alright. Of the books I've read, I'd throw Rant up on the top of the pile. Tried reading Pygmy but it was a bit too much of a novelty act to persevere with.

Pygmy was painful, I didn't get far into it before giving up. It being so difficult to read made impossible to enjoy.

I just finished the second book of 1Q84, I'm on the edge of my seat wanting to know how this will end but I won't be able to get the the third and final book until during the week so until then I'm reading Making Money by Terry Pratchett.

Making Money is pretty good.

Ordered the latest Neil Gaiman. Like a fool I saw him post on Facebook that the hardback was on special offer on Amazon, so I went for it thinking £9 was a bargain. Then the final price was €17. Ouch. Still probably good for a hardback. Probably. Can't wait to read it.
