WHSmiths have mislit on buy one get one free... you can be doubly suicidal for half the price!

Erm, serious suggestions....

Oooh Confessions of Max Tivoli.

Can't remember who it was by, but I loved it. Janeite told me to read it originally, so with two MNers it counts as officially MN recommended wink

Don't read the second one by Victoria Hislop - that wasn't very good.

VinoEsmeralda Thu 10-Sep-09 10:29:51

Right, the title is very misleading : 'Love Story' by Ray Kluun. This book is one that you wont put down easily! Really good:-)

I'm reading The Interpretation of Murder - tis very good.

I liked the new Tracey Chevalier here. Not what you'd call gripping, but interesting.

TheFoosa Thu 10-Sep-09 10:36:20

white tiger was ok, but not really worthy of Booker win

I recently finished this, although not fiction but still very readable

TheFoosa Thu 10-Sep-09 10:36:58

I like the look of the new Faulks

mollyroger Thu 10-Sep-09 10:37:05

Flamesparrow Thu 10-Sep-09 10:40:43

It is sort of like a full length version of Benjamin Button - guy born old, living back and getting younger. A love story too.
