Ordinary Thunderstorms by William Boyd. How being in the wrong place at the wrong time resulting from a good deed can have devastating consequences for our 'hero' and those caught up in the chain of events. Based completely in London (so far), it's a tale of greed, corruption and modern mores, packaged as a thriller laced with black humour that I can't put down. It's my 3rd Boyd book and he's really rather good!

Lord of the Flies. For some reason, I missed this one in my childhood. It's Ok, but don't quite see what all the fuss was about and why the book is still held in such high esteem.

Should be an interesting documentary on the Avro Vulcan (Ch4, this evening) with him.

Hi all,

I'm just starting Asia's Cauldron by Robert Kaplan, just a couple of chapters in but so far it's been great. It's a non-fiction on the security/political issues surrounding the South China Sea and the Pacific powers.

Would definitely recommend (so far) for anyone that is interested in regional politics or Asia.

She Wolves by Helen Castor. Excellent account of the queens who ruled England before Mary.

I'm currently reading (and re-reading) 'Why Jazz?" by Kevin Whitehead. The book is fantastic at answering the question and provides many muscial examples...I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the genre, or anyone who is into music but not necessarily jazz.
