    Just read:

    The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood. 2/5 Wouldn't bother if I were you. Starts off well, then goes nowhere, then gets stupid and goes nowhere.
    The Big Midweek: Life inside The Fall by Steve Hanley. 5/5 A fascinating study of Stockholm Syndrome and life inside a Cult, albeit with added music and gigs.
    When You Dead, You Dead by Guy Martin. 3/5 Not as good as his Autobiography and he does honestly show that he's a bit of a d*ckhead sometimes.

    Currently Reading:

    The Peripheral by William Gibson
    KL, the story of the Concentration Camps by Nikolaus Wachsmann
    Blue Remembered Earth by Alastair Reynolds - though I'm probably going to sling this one.
    The Black Guard by A.J. Smith
    The Last Stand by Nathaniel Philbrick
    Lurker at the threshold

    Nice choice. I finally slogged to the end of The Whispering Swarm. Not really my cup of tea.
    I then ripped through What Remains, Tim Weaver in about 2 days and also Hydrogen Sonata 2nd read in about 2 days. So I haven't lost my reading mojo, just not so into MJM as once I was.
    I thik I'll have a go at the Kindle version of All you need is kill next.

    Old Man's War, John Scalzi. Not a terrible book, however not very original, I'm stuck deciding which of Forever War or Starship Troopers it channels the most.

    Bit of young adult lit: kissing the rain, kevin brooks. If you liked the style of Feersum Endjinn then this may be for you.

    The Moorcock trilogy was cool,

    Next on my reading list, Planet of Fear - "A Scott Saunders Adventure" a 1977 YA SciFi novel by the one & only Patrick Moore.

    Major influence on my teens. At one time I suspected Bromley in Kent was the secret centre of the multiverse, I started noticing it in all sorts of contexts.
