I've just read her new book 'Sepulchre' which is the same sort of thing - past and present follow a trail till they meet in some sort of crisis/climax.

 

This time the glue holding the parts together is a tarot pack. I won't say any more because that would spoil it for other people. I did enjoy it - I think it was better than the last one and I did find myself reading much too late at night because I wanted to find out what happened next.

Bad Science by Ben Goldacre - completely debunking popular "health fads" including Patrick Holford and "Dr" Gillian McKeith. Rated 5 stars by the BBC Focus magazine which is why I said to my OH "I really, really want to read this!" (ps. Thank you for remembering it for my birthday!)

 

Forensic Science (Second Ed.) by Andrew and Julie Jackson. OU module required reading and thoroughly enjoying it - excellent for helping you pick CSI apart :)

 

Attempted to read The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart. What a load of **** and I won't be finishing it - I got as far as page 140-ish.

Just finished Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. An alternative take on the Grail legend. I wouldn't call it gripping but it was reasonably entertaining. I've read a lot worse (The Da Vinci Code).

 

7/10 :wink:

 

I've recently finished this one as well - 25p from the charity shop - and it was good, easy bedtime brain candy after a day's work with kids and studying.

'Dodie's phenomenal pheesic'

 

Translation of Roald Dahl's 'Georges marvellous medicine' into Shetland dialect, by Christine De Luca.

 

The youngest brought this home from primary school, so I grabbed it for a quick scan.

Funny stuff, not only is it something in the Shetland dialect worth reading for once but it makes a great improvement on the original.

Hope there's more of these out there, It would be great to see a discworld novel done over Sheltiestyle.
