/ Books of 2017
Many thanks to all contributors to this thread. Skirting around my sense of guilt at how little time I find I can give to solid reading these days, there are all sorts of stimulating new suggestions there - as well as encouraging nudges to revisit old classics to see how I react to them 40 or 50 years on.
The WH Smiths 2017 Diary and the 2017 Plymouth White Pages were both fascinating reads!
Seriously though, I had a bit of a thing for the "Four Horsemen" last year and particularly enjoyed:
"The End of Faith" by Sam Harris
"The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins
"The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins
"Arguably" A collection of Christopher Hitchens pieces.
"The Book of Dave" by Will Self
"The Double" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Kill the Father by Sandstone Dazieri
