"Been a while since one of these, and I got a few decent ideas from the last one, so why not do it again, after all the forums do seem to be suffering a paucity of stimulating topics just now.
Enjoying the Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. His Cloud Atlas didn't strike me as something I would enjoy, but now thinking I may have made a mistake there. Also reading, but struggling, with The King Without a Kingdom by Maurice Druon. "
Cloud Atlas is superb. Incidentally the film is well worth a watch too and complements the book nicely despite the narrative changes and the necessarily different structure (it's brilliantly edited to weave the stories together).
I usually have a few books on the go, currently The Fireman by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son), Damned by Chuck Palahniuk, Woody Allen's Complete Prose and on the non fiction front, Happy by Derren Brown.
