2nd choice will be mays book. (this shall hopefully pre empt and alleviate any complaints on the 1st of the month if i am daring to live my life) i 'm still editing the poll to make it take all the choices but now someone has voted so it won't let me the other two were the bus conductor hine james kelman and stephen fry the hippopotamus just write them in i am sure we can all count don't know why they were bumped off the bottom.

The Busconductor Hines gets my vote. It sounds good and I have yet to read a Booker Prize winner I didn't enjoy.

I can't see much original discussion coming from re-reading LOTR and I personally can't do autobiographies. I shouldn't complain, with all my PC problems I forgot to submit my suggestion. :oops:

Don't worry with your pc prob and my pc prob i prob wouldn't have got them. I would fall out with everyone in a lotr discussion. I always do in fact i was almost kicked from a course once for doing an essay on it being a historical period drama rather than fantasy argueing that it was written as a mythical history. I won got a merit and all because i thought it would be funny it was.

Most fantasy is historical, but I think LOTR is more than most. Oh dear, we're discussing it now! :lol:
