I only just noticed this. Yeah my fiance found this on the website we use over the weekend. Have they made an arse of it or is it good?

Bookwise, done a fair amount of reading over the last few months. Conpleted a Douglas Skelton series in Glasgow which was dark and great. Then a series of comedy crime novels by caimh mcdonnell. Both authors are good value  :thumbsup:

Three episodes in so far. A bit slow but I'm not overly surpised at that.
Early impression is that I preferred the book to be honest.

Was waiting for your final opinion on it, didn't sell it one your last response!

Finished reading the tattooist which is about the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist. Enjoyable is probably the wrong word to describe it but it was a really good read. Understandably sad.

It has improved mate. Think we only have about two or three episodes to watch.
Small criticisms i do feel they have passed it out however.
I have read The Tattooist of Auschwitz last year.
An extremely moving experience which shows the worst of humanity and in small parts the best. Recommended reading for almost everyone about events in the past that must never be forgotten or repeated.

I know it's a few years old now, but just finished King Joeys book, the one with Charlie Allen and was wondering if anyone knew who the Rangers player was who spat in his face during his early playing days at Aberdeen, but wouldn't/couldn't name in the book? I could only think of Alec MacDonald?

Angela's Ashes by Frank Mccourt. Bleak and unflinching yet strangely erotic.

Accidental hitman by A.W. Wilson - good read, quite light hearted and funny
