It's only taken four years. Laud and applaud me.
I really wish I owned my own copy...
one of the only books to actually give me nightmares. i had to finish it quickly because it was too scary
...it's not THAT long to read is it? After all, some of the pages have very little text :)
More importantly however, did you enjoy it? I've not read it for years, might be due a revisit.
Has anyone read Only Revolutions? That was somewhat gash sadly.
As you might have guessed, I have read a few other books in between, having put it down several times. If I'd known that the last quarter vanishes so quickly, I might have stuck with it on the first go.
i think i did it in a few months
i think it tailed off a bit at the end tbh - the first three quarters are aces
Yes ^ only revolutions is unreadable sadly (though I may make an attmept again at some point).
In related news: am I right in believing that the hardcore band 'Johnny Truant' are sadly no more?
its just not very good, not much happens to be honest even if u stick with it, the language in it is pretty though :)
I read it about 10 years ago and loved it at the time, and everyone I've recommended/lent it to since has loved it too.
Read The Fifty Year Sword recently, that was awesome too (in a much shorter kind of a way). Still holding out on Only Revolutions until I've got a week free to give it a proper going at.
favourite books :) ive read it loads , might read it again soon now this thread has reminded me of its goodness hehe
that she might have been saying "hallways.""
actual shiver down spine.
No book should have that kind of power.
'cept the Necronomicon of course.
Love it lots. Got a chill down my spine when,(THIS IS OBVSLY GOING TO BE A SPOILER FYI) near the end, he's reading a letter from his mam, and she's like 'oh that mean man imma put a curse on him something to eat him from the inside out'. about the marine guy who got cancer.
funny the bits you remember from time to time too. i rly like the book yeah
but I've looked it up and now I'm desperate to read it
haha its one of my fave books ever
I meant the one below. But yeah, do it, read the book.
which is to say;
"I am not what I used to be"
I've read loads of books obv but not this one.
Get onto it!
it's kind of a post modern ghost story zxcvbnm. It's a book about a book about a film about a house thats bigger on the inside than out. it has a very interesting structure that reflects events as theyre happening, a complex, beautiful story, extremely well written and thought out, and, most importantly, its damn damn damn damn enjoyable. damn.
its incredibly powerful, I'm proud to have it on my bookshelf.
