This book is excellent if you need something to prop your computer up on if you're using it in bed and don't want the fan to get smothered by blankets.

I do not believe it has any other redeeming qualities.

Deffo the best of these Johnny books. Can't believe this hasn't been made into a movie yet by some scruffy indie director.

This book was incredibly long. I don't really have anything else to say about it, because its longness really was its defining characteristic. I mean I've read some long books in my time, and this was definitely similar to those other long books, due ...more

You know that bit in Shaun of the Dead where he kills his mom? Yeah, that bit. There's a point in this book where it has "that bit" in it, and after that the whole story gets kinda rubbish. But the first half is jolly good.

I read this when I was nine and it kind of confused me about a lot of things. It's a great book, but it's probably better to read it when you know what heroin is, for a start.

Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson

This was such a disappointment - I love Kate Atkinson's writing, but I couldn't get into this one at all. I admit, I didn't finish it... I just wasn't interested enough to keep going. All the other books of hers I've read have been real page-turners.
