I've read that.

 

It's good.

 

Wouldn't have minded had it gone on another 30 odd years tbh be honest.

 

You know I wrote it, right? So, cheers. Can't get access after the late '70s because he made everyone sign confidentiality agreements.

Laura Hillenbrand is one of the best non-fiction writers out there, and one of the best researchers in the world. She's pretty ill though so doesn't release much.

 

If you're into sport/war biographies you can't go wrong. Don't be put off by the film Seabiscuit, the book is excellent  (and I hate horse racing). Unbroken is as good as The Forgotten Highlander.

Or you could always buy one of these for all your family and friends:

The preachers secret is interesting. Did he lock his flock outside the church?


Surely if that was the case they'd have just burned the church down, especially given the writing on the church wall.

The whole concept of not catching the virus if ingested bothers me. Take the scene from 30 Days Later when it goes in his eye and he turns. Surely if it goes into your eye it has the same effect as a bite. Yet they're slashing eveything that moves. Think it has to do with making the killing scenes gorier andmore enjoyable.

I don't have an issue with the charge, I think it's a good thing. What I do have an issue with is fully-recyclable paper bags being included in the charge. To me that makes it look like a money-raising exercise, rather than a way of improving the environment.
