I tried this before the film came out and found the Scottish dialect difficult to cope with and gave up. Then I saw the film and was able to return to the book with their voices in my head and found it to be very different and absolutely brilliant; not for the faint-hearted.
I hated Jude Law as Mr Ripley, not how I saw this wonderfully manipulative character at all, and not a good portrayal of one of the greatest crime novels of the 20th century. There is far more depth and complexity here than the film could ever give you.
Thomas Mann’s writing is what holds this way above the film, and in this edition you get a whole lot more than just the one perfect and very special novella.
The latest volume in the Adrian Mole saga see's Adrian down on his luck in more ways than one and when the possibility that he may have prostate cancer hits home things just seem to go from bad to worse. Sue Townsend still manages to keep these well known characters fresh, funny and interesting. You will laugh and cry at the continuing adventures of Adrian Mole.
I can’t believe this is a first novel. It is extremely good, full of great characters, tension and intrigue. Trying to work out the puzzles and mysteries keeps the pages flying to see if you’re on the right track. I urge you to read it. Comparison: Harlan Coben, Linwood Barclay, Lisa Gardner.
A 2011 World Book Night selection. Meet Jack Reacher. If you are a woman you’ll fall in love, if a man you’ll want to emulate him – he’s great. He’s a tough, ex-military cop of no fixed address and strangely you’ll feel you need to get to know him – which is great for there are a lot of books - right up to the latest, 61 Hours, with its most extraordinary ending. So meet Jack Reacher and then really get to know him. Killing Floor is the first book in the phenomenal bestselling Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. It introduces Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode. Trained to think fast and act faster, he is the perfect action hero for men and women alike. A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher... ‘I fell in love with Jack Reacher as a character when I first read early material of this very first thriller by Lee Child – here was a hero for our time, trained to think fast and act faster, a strong, silent, pragmatic and ruthless righter of wrongs who also had his tender side and was therefore equally appealing to a woman like me as he was to my male colleagues: although the proofs of every new Reacher thriller are instantly snapped up, this first book remains a favourite of so many people at Transworld for the past fifteen years, and I can honestly say that everyone who works here takes pride in the way Lee has since broken through into the superleague of thriller writers.' Marianne Velmans, Publishing Director at Transworld Our Editorial Guru, Sarah Broadhurst, has suggested others book and authors that would be perfect for you to read next or to pass on the recommendation - so your gift will keep on giving enjoyment. Her selections for this title are: Stephen Leather, Gerald Seymour, Tom Cain.
Gripping and gory, prepare to be seriously haunted by this powerful second title in A Dark Touch series. Schoolboy Kyle is savaged to death as he takes a short cut home through the woods. Who or what killed him? Eve has supernatural powers and she knows that the dirty work has been done by a demon. Will she summon up her powers to hunt the demons or is she too distracted by the gorgeous new boy on the school? An entertainingly scary read with a strong school setting.
A first novel, so in some ways one must forgive the author for a little flagging in the middle. Having said that I do most earnestly recommend it. As an insight into the extraordinary culture, it is flawless.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010. Reminiscent of Bolaño, Beckett and Pynchon, this is a remarkable novel - a compelling, sophisticated and sublimely imaginative book uncovering the hidden codes and dark rhythms that sustain life.
Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award 2010. A dual time story this is a weird tale of a collector of Nazi memorabilia being sucked into a plot with its roots pre WWII. Murder, mystery, mayhem and gay sex abound, oh and some pretty nasty beetles. It is one of those books you have got to read to believe. Wacky, controversial, original and very clever.
Longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award 2010. A look at a possible cataclysmic world filled with disasters - natural and man made. Beginning with the Millennium Bug we follow our protagonist as a nine year old growing up in a world lurching from one problem to the next. Although looking at a future that could have been if YK2 had happened it is constantly reminding us that just because we didn’t get that prediction right there are many more that could become reality. A thought provoking debut.
Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award 2010. Set in a Finnish sanatorium where women retreat with problems real and imaginary this debut is dark, claustrophobic, tense and menacing. A dramatic and brilliantly told story but not one to try if you are looking for a light hearted read.
