Not sure if he was ever professional but he was at Molde and suffered a bad injury. He was also in a moderately successful Norwegian band called Di derre. Big Spurs fan I think.

Read the first Inspector Dirk Gently book recently, will move on to the second one soon. Might have to re-read the Hitchhiker's series again.

Back to the Jo NesbÝ subject, I've just started Redeemer. I'm loving the music references in the books so far and by the sounds of it I haven't yet reached the best books

Fact based books i'd refer - Ray Mears: My Outdoor Life.  Miracle of Castel Di Sangro by Joe McGuiness

Any of you history buffs should also read/concentrate on Collapse: How societies choose to fail or succeed by Jared Diamond.

Read his ' Guns, Germs and Steel' very enjoyable.

I thought it was entertaining enough, not a difficult book to get through. Give it a go Smiley

a request: a friend has just finished the Game of Thrones books which he was wrapped up in for ages and doesn't know what to read now.  Any recs?

Native Son by Richard Wright currently. I read more modern classics than anything else. It certainly conveys the tension of the situation well, and I feel myself wanting to intervene to stop the main character from causing himself harm. Not many books draw me in that deep.
