"Moby Dick" Herman Melville



I've been meaning to read this for years - but somehow thought it would be a very heavy task. Turns out it's absolutely engrossing.

On the subject of big marine beasties.

Meg : Nightstalkers (2017)



Volume 5 of Steve Alten's series about giant 70-80 ft prehistoric sharks sharing our seas with us, also now a 122ft Liopleurodon and several other large beasties.
The Megs are loose off Canada and the Liopluerodon is headed to Antarctica with our heroes on their trail. Throw in some hidden lakes under the Antarctic where huge Miocene Sperm Whales live, a TV reality show and time travel and that covers most of the bases to date.

The Meg film is due out in March so I had to read this first as the film also contains some elements of this book.

Robert Crais - "The Wanted" "It seemed like a simple case--before the bodies starting piling up. Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, take on the deadliest case of their lives in the new masterpiece of suspense from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author. When single mother Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole, it's because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and she's afraid he's dealing drugs. But the truth is devastatingly different. With two other partners in crime, he's been responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear. They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man. Determined to get it back, he has hired a team that is smart and brutal, and to even the odds, Cole calls in his friends Joe Pike and Jon Stone. But even they may be overmatched. The hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. A few more won't make any difference"

My favourite Radio 4 show 'In Our Time' did a programme about Moby Dick recently, well worth a listen

Does it give away the ending? I'm 300 pages in and Captain Ahab has just appeared for the first time.

I am currently reading three books: "On Leadership" by John W. Gardner; "A Storm of Swords (Game of Thrones #3)" by George R R Martin; and a bio, "Sandra Day O'Connor" by Joan Biskupic.

They do summarise the plot, so probably best to leave off listening until after you've finished it - also if you want to maintain your innocence about the relationship between Ishmael and Queequeg..........

The Hanging Tree. The latest in the Rivers Of London series by Ben Aaronevitch. Better the second time around.

Sam Forever



A very interesting and easy to read look at Samantha Fox's career, full of stories sometimes funny and sometimes moving, some nice never seen before pics and a great reminder of how crazy (in the right sense of the word) the 80s were. Definitely a nice book.

July 1945.


Using XE-craft midget this is the full story when 2 British Midget Submarines attacked the 2 Imperial Japanese Heavy Cruisers, Takao and Myoko in shallow water off Singapore - where they were a potential threat to the forthcoming ' Operation Zipper ', the Invasion of Malaya, in September 1945 .
It is a book I am starting to read, I knew a bit of the back story through War Comics, but this is the full in-depth detail about the mission, and the 2 other far less known attacks of submerged phone cables that lead to China and Indo-china - worth a punt
