    Seem to remember loving the Sven Hassel WWII books as a yoof.

    Recently, 'Some Luck' by John Bird.

    The bloke who started... "Big Issuuuuuuue".

    Spookily he spent time as a kid in downtown sarf London, Fulham, Chelsea - Kings Road etc in the 60s same as me! Very strange to see your home town, same era described exactly as you would.

    He was rough and tumble and fought back at everything.
    Still has a temper apparently.

    Worlds Fastest Indian, my favourite movie of all times.

    I didn't know about the book though.

    Christine has gotta be a book I've read dozens of times. Every chapter starts with a lyric from a car related song.

    When last on hols, I read Driver. About the loon that done the Gumball ect in a fake German Police M5. He then went on to break the original Cannonball cross country record.
    The doors open, but the ride it aint free.

    Flat out Flat Broke, Perry Macarthy, the original Stig.

    If ever there was a tale of never, ever, ever give up then this is it.

    For a holiday read try Dean Koontz (careful how you ask for that at Waterstones....) lots of great books easy to read and I prefer over Stephen King. Twilight Eyes is a good start.

    I really enjoy autobiographys, Just finished Murrey Walkers, never realised he did so much before commentating, Smokey Yunick wrote 3 books, everyone is laugh out load funny. James Hunt, Alan Whicker, David Niven, Sid James all good reads.

    Tom Sharpe, Wilt, was reading this on the train going to work and was laughing so hard I had people coming up to me and asking if I was alright, they thought I was having a heart attack!

    If you like Sci Fi Read the Dune Books by Frank Herbert (I think).

    The list goes on and on.....

    Dont get me started on Graphic Novels (comics to my wife, philistine...)

    I've got agree with you Paul, for laugh out loud reading Tom Sharpe is hard to beat either Wilt, The Throwback, Porterhouse Blue or Blot. On the other side of the coin, if you're too cheerfull any Thomas Hardy will soon have you depressed.

    A couple of good non-fiction titles,
    The Fast Set, by Charles Jennings.
    Great book about Malcolm Campbell, Henry Seagrave and John Cobb and the chase for the land speed record.

    Nowt to do with cars, but one of my favorites:-
    Adolf Hitler: My Part in his Downfall by Spike Milligan.
    Brilliant, often funny portrait of real life for the ordiary soldiers in WW2.
