A Book Thread - 2020
If interested please name the best or well remembered 3 books you have read and would recommend to others.

1.Don Quixote , in English, favourite book of all time. By the Spanish equivalent of Shakespeare , Cervantes. Published in fucking 1605. Genius Comedy.

2. Just read The Rose of Tibet , by Lionel Davidson, I do not like adventure books, but this is beautiful and like a better real life Indiania Jones but with a Londoner. Really nice holiday read.

3. Fuck watching 3 hours of old cunts cashing in on Goodfellas of 30 years ago, 3 hours of the Irishman, torture, but "I heard you paint houses" by Charles Brandt is a must read mafia book with the accurate story of the Irishman and Hoffa case.

4. Have not got round to reading SPLATT yet.

If you enjoyed the TV series Terror about Franklin's search for the north West Passage you might enjoy Ice Ghosts about what actually happened.

Just got through Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel’s epic on Thomas Cromwell and have dived straight into Bring Up the Bodies. Absolutely brilliant.

New Jersey - stick with it. The third in the series - Redbreast, is an absolute classic. The Bat is still good in my opinion but they get better.

Just finished reading a pretty darn decent thriller called Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Howard - definitely a good one to put aside for a beach holiday if you’re looking

Half way through The bat, first in the Harry Hole series by J Nesbo. Bit disappointed so far, like my Scandi-crime t be a bit more darker than that!

Norman - The Stand, what a superb book, Stephen King's finest!

Yeah, azel senior, they are in tone, but they're UK procedurals. Funnily enough, I'm reading Elevator Pitch by Barclay right now.

To be fair no books of value were lost, just communist literature and all that pornography your boys were peddling

Re: A Book Thread - 2020
There's been lots of literature and even movies released preceding their realisation, from WWI, WWII, Globalism, genocide, Orwell & Huxley's 1984/Brave New World respectively, 9/11 and the Twin Towers falling,Trump "the wall builder" winning Presidency in The Last President (okay the real Trump never really intended to nor built an actual wall), the fall of the West etc.

Some call it predictive programming, other times it can be self fulfilling prophecy, then there's the the intelligence services that seed ideas into the open, sometimes it's simply a coincidence.

I used to think the movies like Idiocracy and They Live were just harmless entertainment only to realise it wasn't so much a prophecy as they were fly-on-the-wall documentaries.

The sword of honour trilogy - Evelyn Waugh

The Corrections – Jonathan Franzen

The Basketball Diaries – Jim Carroll

Ask me next week and you'd probably get 3 different answers though.

"only just got officially released to the public the other month..."

Well, it was first published in 1981 and has been reissued several times since then.

Seems to be popular now among conspiracy dimwits, mainly because the virus in the novel is named after Wuhan, despite the fact that originally it was named after Gorki and only changed in later editions of the book after the fall of the Soviet Union.

So Top Iron, looking at your list, if I tell you I'm a big fan of Linwood Barclay and Harlan Coben, I'm guessing these are in the same vein?
