Just finished Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. Can’t recommend it enough. I’ve heard the film is horrible but it’s on Netflix so that’s my Monday night entertainment.

Especially looking forward to the latter one.
I'd prepare to be disappointed.

The concept is a clever one and there are a few elements of the story that are so clearly down to an on-form Pratchett, but overall I found it pedestrian and quite frankly hard to finish.

Good idea for a story sadly wasted.

On the strength of the good reviews on here, I downloaded The Enemy (Jack Reacher). Currently reading the sample and liking it so far.

For an Englishman, James Grant seems to have the US military lingo down, not that I would know if it is bullshit or not!

Well sort of, as James Grant is his real name and Lee Child his pen name, I wasn't sure what to call him.

I guess in this case, as I'm talking about the author I should have called him Lee Child.
