    Finished Jo Nesbo's The Redbreast a crime thriller with a WW 2 background/ fascist theme. An enjoyable read.

    One of three books I took on holiday and just finished. Got 4/5 chapters and quickly realised that this book wasn't going to be a classic.

    Sadly, the OG trilogy is where to go if you want to start this series (which I would recommend to absolutely anyone).

    Read a few of his books and this was by far the best, his other books have too many plot twists (8 or 9 in one of his books that I got sick of and stopped reading )

    Despite knowing the premise of this book before reading, it still hit pretty hard.

    Finished this Novella. Its about a 2 hour read and 1/4 parts.

    Think I'd recommend this to anyone actually. Murderbot is half robot, half human whose job it is to protect humans while they do research on an unknown planet.
    Now this book isn't necessarily what you think it may be, it's very funny and encourages discussion on what it means to be human and what we're willing to do.

    4/5

    Just finished Frank Herbert's Dune Messiah and enjoyed it a good follow up to his sci fi classic Dune and one that does not follow the usual type of script when it comes to the outcome which I thought was interesting.

    @Scotia I think it was you mate who asked me about a book on modern football I'd read. I can't remember which book that was but this one was better.

    Just finished it. I'm a total mark for the series, but I definitely enjoyed it!

    I liked that and have read a few of his books. Really insightful reads.

    Quite enjoyed re-reading this @Aberama Gold. I didn't think thee author was that biased and if he was still didn't change any of my opinions.
