Has anyone read Geoff Hursts autobiography yet?? If so what are there opinions .
I read Ian Wright's autobiography when I was on a school trip to France, it's surprisingly good.

I have now given up trying to read the bible and have decided to read Jackie Chan's autbiography again.

I've just started reading this as well - it's set during the time of Michael Corleone's exile in Sicily.

Two excellent books I've just finished are:
The Dirt - the Motley Crue autobiography which shows (in very fine detail) just how sordid and debauched the rock 'n' roll lifestyle can be.
and
Crossfire - The Plot That Killed Kennedy by Jim Marrs which was the book Oliver Stone based JFK on. As Bill Hicks said, Oswald cannot possibly have done it as officially stated - not unless he was hanging by his toes from the window ledge.

White teeth is really boring.

I read 'McCarthy's Bar' by Pete McCarthy recently, and made a complete tit of myself with my constsnt sniggering and laughing out loud. It is undoubtedly the funniest book I've ever read.

The most shocking book I ever read was called 'Confessions of Idi Amin'. Don't know the author.

PS Never, ever admit to liking John Grisham.

Although Matov might be interested to know that the recently-released audio version is read by my ex's sister - who does in fact have a mighty set of horsey white teeth.

I read Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje on the train journey to and from Preston. Very atmospheric, some wonderful economy of expression, but I didn't find it the revelation promised by so many of the reviews. Now starting on When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro, which almost seems like a made-for-Merchant-Ivory so far. First 100 pages not a patch on A Pale View Of Hills.

I think you will find that the book will become increasingly less Merchant-Ivory the further you read, and somewhat dark and dense. I remember feeling slightly disorientated when I finished it, as though I had emerged from a dark tunnel with no idea of where I was. My initial reaction was one of disappointment, but thinking about it now I am intrigued and feel the need to re-read it.

I am currently re-reading 500 Mile Walkies by Mark Wallington because it makes me smile.

I've ploughed through a few recently.

They include 'A Sport And A Pastime' by James Salter. Described as literary erotic realism, don't you know. Skillfully evokes the kind of relationship that only truly makes sense in terms of physical attraction.

'Noah, Noah' by Paul Wilson. Described on the jacket as something like 'the sort of book John Irving would write if he lived in Lancashire' and that seems fair enough to me. It shares a certain something with 'The Hotel New Hampshire' - and it's more than the bear.

'Morvern Callar' by Alan Warner. Echoes of Camus' 'L'Etranger', but funny. A strong, silent young girl from the Scottish Highlands returns home to find her boyfriend's killed himself. What she does next isn't exactly what your or I would do.

And now I'm getting near the end of 'Someone To Watch Over Me' which is Paul Wilson's new book, only in hardback at the moment. I'm not at the end yet, so hard to say for sure, but it's the best book of his that I've read and if it delivers over the last 50 pages will certainly qualify as first-rate. It's taking on a variety of themes (religion, faith and loss primarily) as an insurance fraud investigator tries to prove a remarkable event isn't a miracle. A small Lancashire town suffers a massacre at the local school after which manuscripts in hebrew fall from the sky. The locals believe they're messages from God. I'll let you know if it's as good as it's promising to be.
