This is a list of recent books that I've read (and these are just the ones within the last three months)
- Revelation Space series by Alastair Reynolds. Hard Science Fiction. First two books are great, the third was slightly disappointing.
- Harry Potter an the Deathly Hallows I'm sure you all know this one. It's unremittingly dark
- Slaughterhouse5 by Vonnegut
- Occupational Hazards by Rory Stewart. Required reading if you're interested in Iraq and what will happen there
- Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Because I'd run out of books on holiday, and yes, it is a novel, and it's actually quite good.
- God is not Great by Christopher Hitchens. For all us non-believer's out there.
- This Book Will Save Your Life. Another Novel. Get the doughnuts instead!
- A Short History of Tractors in Ukranian by Maria Lewycka. Very funny. You'll like all the characters by the end
- The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson. This is laugh-out-loud funny. If you haven't read it, treat yourself and go and buy it. On holiday I read it, my wife read it and the kids read it.
