A House for Mr. Biswas,
Depressed people, war, people who are victims of bad circumstances or corruption - thats all there was ...the harsh truth of life and as we all know - Truth Hurts.

I need a happy book now ....

I am pretty much still bored ...though I heard two albums which I had been trying to get my hands on (or ears on??) for a long time now -
Dire Straits - Live at the BBC and
Metallica Gold - acoustic
Both get a thumbs up from me :-)
