  1. I’ve read quite a few of these – some I loved (The Sense of an Ending, The Blind Assassin, Life of Pi)…others, not so much love (but I won’t say which ones because I don’t want to put you off anything that’s ahead!). Actually reading Amsterdam at the moment and really enjoying it. Seeing all the books listed reminds me of so many books that I haven’t got to yet.

    I’ve not read a single one of these… Disgraceful!!
