Books. Fahrenheit 451

So this thing is doing the blogosphere rounds and being always up for a bit of time wasting here goes.

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?

One that leaves me really cold…- The bible? I think I’ll wait till the movie comes out before I actually pretend I comprehend the significance of this question.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Errmm Nancy Drew? Wonder Woman? Lets go with Catwoman, Michelle Pfeiffer version.

The last book you bought is:

I think it’s the Dan Brown books all in one go. Great summer reading at the beach house.

The last book you finished is?

Animal FarmAnimal Farm: Centennial Edition by George Orwell. You know it, piggie!

What are you currently reading?

Two at the same time – Burmese Days by Orwell again. I’m still not sure what its about other than a discussion of imperalisam (?) , racism and human nature. The other is Let the Good Times Roll by Bob Jones – an autobiography of how he provides security for rock stars. It’s a shite read but some of the stories are interesting.

Three Books you would take to a deserted Island?

Aside from the fact no one is ever prepared to go to a deserted island....

A really freakin long one. Maybe War and Peace? Its famous, but I bet no one under 70 has ever read it.

I’d have to throw in a trashy novel. Hell, I'm at the beach am I not? How about Polo by Jilly Cooper? A classic trashy novel indeed.

Perhaps the third could be an unpublished book by Brett Ellis of American Psycho fame. Some thing really really sick and twisted.

P.S. Congrats to the Black Caps for kicking some ass. Finally.

The only value in taking War and Peace along is if you ever run out of toilet paper on the island.
