Bill Hicks...

Love al the People...

If you haven't read it yet, do! A brilliant insight into one of America's best and most feared Comics.

Basically, it's transcripts of Live shows but there is some brutal and savage material in there.

The man is a fantastic jurnalist and I would strongly recomend him to anyone who likes reading about the things that the typical western media dont talk about or report due to censorship.
And no it is not a big conspiracy theory book.
God I can't stand John Pilger.
Self righteous, pompous, short-sighted twat.

Origin Of Species, Charles Darwin.

Well written, interesting to see him have to support so many arguements that we take for granted these days.

DaVinci code- Rip roaring! (Does anyone say that anymore??)

Ulysses- Aha! Now you have fallen into the trap! See even if it was crap (which I dont think it is) all anyone will say to you is 'You must'nt have understood it'. Which is possible and understandable unless you've read a load about Joyce before hand.
