They Have Their Exits - Airey Neave
I had a chance to pick up this book some time ago, but for some reason, I think it was a bit tatty, I didn't buy it. A dear friend passed this copy on to me, knowing that I'd like it, he wasn't wrong.
Many will not even know who Airey Neave was, and I wouldn't blame them for that. He was the MP murdered by terrorists when his car was blown up as he was driving out of the houses of parliament underground car park. Decades earlier, he'd described his exploits in this book, of how he became the first British POW to escape from the notorious Colditz Castle. A ripping yarn.

People.

Always people.

Their energy field fluctuates like a Boris Johnson polygraph test.

The Overstory by Richard Powers... and I don't recommend it. It's like Moby Dick for trees and less interesting. Recently I've read Moby Dick itself, Children of the Dust, The Time Machine, The Notebook, Z for Zachariah, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Fault in our Stars, The English Patient. I thoroughly recommend The Notebook and Fault in our Stars.

In terms of favourite books ever, in no particular order I'd say... The Silmarillion, Animal Farm, On the Beach, Earth Abides. The End Specialist

I absolutely LOVED The English Patient :)
