Topic - Waterstones- spoilt for choice confusion help pls

Bjartur i Sumarhus on 12 Feb 2013
So I stroll into Waterstones for a browse with an itchy palm ready to spend some money. I start to browse the tables and pick up a few books and I get in a quandry...some are in the "buy one get one half price" promotion, some are not, I have books at home that I haven't read...why am I buying more? In the end I left with nothing...anyway. Who's read any of these that I almost grabbed and what did they think?

Wolf Hall - no explanation needed, and I love historical fact/fiction
Pure - Andrew Miller , looks interesting again historical fiction, won an award
The Man who fell to Earth - Walter Tevis , old school sci fi peaked my interest
Les Mis - yes yes, movie too long, stage show even is a weapon. But the prose looked fantastic ...and no singing!(tempted by Hunchback Notre Dame as well)
Revolutionary Road - Nick Hornby reckons it's his favourite book

It goes without saying that I could buy these for much less on Amazon, but I love book shops and so have no issue paying a bit more supporting them (they probably pay tax as well ;-)
