The Fifth Elephant: Terry Pratchett

I have to be honest, this is not really a book review. I am too in love with Terry Pratchett’s creations to be able to offer any kind of objectivity or a proper opinion. Whilst in America I spent a lot of time trying to find a Discworld novel in thrift stores.

Satellite People: Hans Olav Lahlum

Lord of the Rings: The a Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien 

I know, I know. It is a miracle that I have got to the ripe old age of 21 without having read the LOTR trilogy. A poor effort on my part. I have however, seen all of the films – in a gruelling 10+hour marathon on a hungover Saturday. To be honest this has not ruined the first book for me much, as I cannot … Continue reading Lord of the Rings: The a Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien
