    BB & Chilli - Definitely a 'must read' book. Pretty heavy going not something you would enjoy reading if your distracted imo. I highly recommend it, picked it up off a friends book shelf in my teens and it was the first novel I read that had some intense philosophical, ideal questioning life changing type messages in it. Before that I was reading alot of Uris, Mitchener etc Perec showed me a book can make you think not just be a story. Couldn't even explain the storyline to you if you asked me to but could tell you the underlying message.

    Tried reading it again a few years ago but wasn't in the right frame of mind and just couldn't get through the first few chapters.

    Brick, my friends say the same thing. Intense, complex & challenging to get through, but worth it

    I have planned to read it for many years. In Paris I had an original, written in french, which I still have somewhere, but I realised two chapters in, it was going to be a HARD slog in a second language lol

    Have you read The Alchemist? By The River Piedra I Sat Down & Wept? Both Paulo Coehlo, both incredible books, I promise

    I can't read books that are figments of some ones imagination.

    I like real stuff.
    I need to be shocked.

    I have been reading the walking dead comics lately as well as the definitive book of body language

    I didn't really like the alchemist. Maybe I wasn't ready for it.

    My favs
    Tuesday with morrie
    5 people u meet in heaven both by Mitch albom

    the last lecture by randy
    the peaceful warrior by someone I can't remember.
    Who moved my cheese

    Highly recommend all the books to increase awareness about yourself and how u view the world

    Will give them both a try. I plow through books at a rate of knots. I am a savage speed reader.........My misuss will read something over my shoulder and I will finish it in 1/3 of the time, she used to accuse me of skimming through, stopped doing that when I started to paraphrase entire documents or quote novel paragraphs verbatim.

    Probably why I did so poorly at school never learnt anything just remembered it, applied it in asessment and promptly forgot it.

    Have you read sins of the brother about Ivan Milat. If not read it definitely one for the true crime fans.
