somebody gave me some Terry Pratchett books. I'm finding them pretty interesting.

I would highly recomend Mr Nice, by Howard Marks, his autobiography.

Irvine Welsh...try reading (or watching, if you can find it) "Acid House". I wouldn't say that the content of his books is (purely) for shock value...ever been to Glasgow?

If you've never read any Iain Banks (another Scot) then you really ought to ("The Wasp Factory", "Walking on Glass"). He writes good sci-fi too (hehe, there is such a thing after all), under the name "Iain M. Banks", in the space-opera vein.

I absolutely loved Angela's Ashes, I have to admit there are parts that make me cry every time I read it. Just when we think we had it rough...

I would totally recommend the sequel, "'Tis". The reviews were not as good, but for those of us starting over in a new world, there is a lot here we can relate to. It's about Frank McCourt's life when he comes to America. After surviving everything he did in Ireland, he talks here about his struggle to be accepted and find his place in the big bad city of New York. Great reading. This book inspired one of my sisters to go to university.

A fantastic book I am reading at the moment is "Glue" by Irvine Welsh. Brilliant Scottish author (the author of Trainspotting, which remains absolutely one of my favourite films), though I think a lot of what he has written previously was purely for shock value. This book tracks the lives of four boys growing up in the schemes (projects) and is, I think his best book to date. It's hilarious, moving and of course quite disturbing.
