i agree with everything you said sparepart, love Beneath too, and the rest of them, our local fleapit showed them all out of order! -down to the tv show and the cartoon! Funny thing about the latter, its closest to Pierre Boulles original vision...

My bro has got the tv series on dvd. Memories of how much I loved Burke and being jealous when a blind chimpanzee fell in love with him. Doesn't seem right in writing!! Chimp/human love...hang on wasn't that done in a Charlotte Rampling film?
Anyway I had forgotten about the cartoon series until you said...call myself a fan! I will have to look into that.

Just started a book called The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. It has a very unusual storyline. Not come across an idea like this in a book. Therefore you have to continue reading.
... The book is by Stuart Turton if you haven't already found out. If you get around to it let me know what you think cos I don't know what I think!

Update:
Woo-hoo! Thanks to my lovely library, I have now taken temporary possession of this book. I'll let you know what I think Smile

Our latest read in our work Bookclub has been "This is going to Hurt" by Adam Kay. A humorous account by an NHS Junior Doctor of his work. Could hardly put it down!

Watched the 1st 2 1/2 episodes on youtube. It would have been interesting if only it had catered for non idiots! They- -spoke- -with - -too- -long- -breaks- -between- -words: it made me feel stupid just listening to it - don''t you dare say anything about that last sentence rojkerr! I notice someone on youtube has knocked together a version of this animated series = the whole series in 4 mins. Says it all.

nice theme though

I'm not often posting in this thread, just because most books I read are not in English. But last week I was clearing my book case and I found an old stage play script: "Look back in Anger" by John Osborne. This play expresses how it was to live in England in the 1950s. A movement called "Angry Young Men". A certain Mr Paul Darrow once performed the role of the main character Jimmy Porter! (1968)
I will read it to see if Mr D based some character traits for Avon on that Jimmy.

I'm now about 1/2-way through and LOVING it!

Such a glorious mash-up of Agatha Christie, Quantum Leap, Groundhog Day and Edgar Allen Poe. Dark, funny, disturbing and utterly mysterious - it's not like anything I've read before Smile

My work bag is heavy and I don't usually cart novels back and forth to work, but I did today 'cos I was impatient to carry on reading it.

It's a book that can stand a 2nd read to pick up on all the clues you missed on the 1st read. I cannot think of any book like it. It will be interesting to see what he does for his 2nd book.

Nine Tailors was the first Dorothy Sayers I read, and the one that got me started on her books.

Finished it yesterday, and have now started re-reading it - to pick up all the clues!
