I've still got the last one to read because it's not in my omnibus edition.

At the min i'm doing an English Lit course and so I'm reading a really interesting *heavy sarcasm* restoration comedy called 'The Rover'. On the plus side I was watching the video performance and who should appear but Danny John Jules.

Ori - i didn't even know The Neverending Story started as a book - that's one of my favourite movies.

I can't stand the movie, but only because I read the book first. Although it's a childrens story, it is most definitely not a childrens book. Kinda like Watership Down...

...I HIGHLY recommend reading it. Got to be one of my favourite fantasy stories of all time

Now I really want to read it, i'll have to keep my eye out for a copy. Is it available in cheapy paperback? I'll check amazon... yes it is £4.79. Might be an imminent purchase.
I've read Watership Down 3 times, it's one of my favourites - even though it makes me cry every time. Poor Hazel!

Well if it hadn't been for me heading to work at the time, I would have been giving you a review of the one of the ten Star Wars books I saw in a shop window. I thought "Pop in tomorrow while I'm off and see how much they are." Got there the next day and some goit had already brought them all.
