both written in an unusual but very engaging style, and properly madcap funny in a way I've not really come across since Tom Sharpe.

I'm currently on the latest John Rebus novel "In a House of Lies" which is well up to Ian Rankin's high standard.


Thanks for the heads up on Jonas Jonasson. I’ve just read his first book “the hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared”

Really amusing. It has a sort of Forrest Gump quality to it, as the main protagonist weaves in and out of history. I’m looking forward to reading the two you recommended.

I have just finished reading Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse.
That was a strange tale; apparently the bible of the Sixties counterculture, but not one I would care to join. A modern day hellfire club?

I am now one chapter into The Great Gatsby. This does not look like the life for me either.
The dissipation and disappointment of money. privilege and having everything but feeling nothing?
I don't know the story, so I am only guessing at this point.
