    I started reading The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson a week before he died. I lost interest when he died. Maybe I'll pick it up again. That or The Misfortunes Of Virtue by Marques de Sade.

    It's pretty good. "Guts" is the most intense story i've ever read.

    With this book, Chucky P. found a way to use the fact that he is so scatter brained to his advantage.

    Currently reading this.

    Here's the synopsis from the book;

    This publication portrays the life of John "Gaffer" Rollinson, one of the most dangerous men in the country. He has made the villains' Hall of Fame through a lifetime of unmitigated violence, driven by a fearsome rage that has seen him become a guest of Her Majesty's prisons on half a dozen occasions. But the prison authorities - and the police - only know a fraction of gaffer's shocking exploits.

    Rollinson could have been a boxer, but he was booted out of the sport as a teenager because his wild rages made him unfit to fight under the Queensberry rules and he was deemed an unacceptable risk even in the most violent of sports. So he became a barber, but his cut-throat razor was soon put to a bloodier use as he carved a notorious reputation for himself thoughout the clubland and debt collection circuit.

    Yet despite his appalling record of violence, Gaffer is not a man without compassion: ask the teenage drug addict he picked up off the street and on whom he spent thousands of pounds in a drug rehabilitation clinic; or the neighbours whose mortgage he paid for six months to prevent them from being evicted.

    Gaffer is a character people love or hate; there is no in-between. Good friend, terrible enemy - cross him and you will encounter a man haunted by terrible demons, driven by an awful violence. Do so at your peril



    Sounds like a diamond geezer.

    I haven't read a good book in a LONG time. I need to know the book is good, and one where I won't wanna put it down.

    I really should start to read again.
