Loads of text books for my MA in Military History that I have just started. For relaxation have just finished Satre's "The Age of Reason" and am a few pages into "The Reprieve" the second book in the trilogy, a much harder read as he runs several themes in parallel and skips between them sometimes on a sentence by sentence basis. I haven't read them for about 20 years which was too long to wait!
I'm going to bump this thread up as I've been devouring books of late.
Currently enjoying greatly this one:
Such a wonderful writer, I've loved all his books bar none. My wife and I went to see him at Bury Met last year when he was on a speaking tour of the UK promoting his new book The People's Songs. A quite wonderful 2 hours of chat and a nice meet and greet afterwards.
Been wanting to read it for years after hearing so many bands, artists & 'heads' citing it a post modern classic dealing with a near future dystopian England. One of my old favourites, Hawkwind had a song called 'High Rise' from 'PXR5'. Joy Division, another personal favourite have a song on their album 'Closer' called 'Attrocity Exhibition', a JG Ballard novella.
Beautifully written with a genuine, charismatic style & a vivid claustrophobic, dark intensity.
Turned the last page, closed the book & thought... what a pile of merde.
