About meOriginally from the North of England & currently living in London.

Always turned to books for solace, inspiration and laughter. Found that some of the most interesting people seem to be characters in books, probably due to the combined intimacy/overview that stories allow.

Very glad to meeting those with thoughts to share about books and authors here on libraryThing. Love to write reviews and hope that they can be helpful to other book lovers! Enjoy all sorts of literature, and plan to expand the booklist in future to include my full library.

About my libraryBooks that I have really enjoyed and would recommend to others, some books I would like to read and the odd one or two that were interesting for other reasons than the author intended... wouldn't necessarily recommend these, but don't regret reading them. Check out the rating and reviews if you want to find out which is which!

Also if you have any thoughts or info on my wish list would like to hear it ☺

Hi,

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked The Wasp Factory, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thanks,

Thank you, and same to you!
Hi,
I just noticed your review of Murikami's "Underground" and thought I drop you a line to say we two recently did the exact same thing on two different sides of the world and in two different hemispheres. Wow, the world is a small place.

A few weeks ago I too read my first Murikami book and it was "Kafka on the Shore." (If your curious what I thought, you can find my review here on LT.) Then, just like you, that book led me to obtain "Underground" from my academic library and to read it. I did not finish the entire book cover to cover, so I did not review it. I read a few of the interviews from both sides...but what interested me most, and what I read in full, was Murikami's analysis.

Recently, I met another LTer whose taste in books I sincerely trust. He recommended that I read "the other side of Murikami" suggesting that I read either "South of the Border, West of the Sun" or "Norwegian Wood." So those two are now on my wishlist.

Anyway, I just thought I'd write and point the coincidence and say "Hi, from Redondo Beach, California."
