Your twitter question made me smile. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking lately about the connection between music choices and book choices. Lots of lovely geeky lists to be had so I’ll do my best. Plus I really appreciate your twitter music recommendations so this really is a pleasure returned 🙂
My own reading tastes run from SF to anything with a hero I can really associate with. So crime fiction is a bit outside my usual but something I do read.
Some of what follows is quite old, so you may already have read:-
1. Martin Cruz Smith – Gorky Park
2. Ben Elton – The First Casualty
3. Christopher Hudson – The Killing Fields
4. Nevil Shute – Round the Bend
5. Yann Martel – Life of Pi
6. Paul Torday – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
7. Douglas Adams – Hitchikers Guide
8. Iain M Banks – Matter
9. Kevin MacNeil -The Stornoway Way (1st read this listenting to R.E.M.’s Dead Letter Office – now inseperable)
10.Khaled Hosseini – The Kite Runner
11. Jeff Noon – Automated Alice
12. Stephen King is always worth a look?
No idea what of this little lot is on Kindle. Let me know what you think, if you do read any of it, I’d be interested.
