Any good?

I like it. Very good background on the writers, hidden jokes, and all around behind the scenes stories of making the show. Goes into detail on how they produce episodes too.

Really great autobiography of his childhood in South Africa during and after apartheid.  Being half black and half white was essentially illegal, thus the title.

I actually listened to the audiobook, which is the preferred format as it is narrated by him, and he weaves in and out of various languages and is really cool to hear that.  Dude is fluent in 8 languages, crazy.

Needless to say, it was a fucked up situation and you really get a feel for the history and the daily life of apartheid in S.Africa then, which was pretty recent, and is still a pretty fucked up place racially.

^^^ I did the audible of that too...second the rec. Especially cool to hear him narrate it.

Other recent audible's narrated by the author I enjoyed:

Recovery by Russell Brand
Fascism by Madeleine Albright
I Forgot to Die by Khalil Rafati
A Colony in a Nation by Chris Hayes.

My eldest recommended this one. He got most of the gaming and Monty Python references, Now I am boring with all the music and movie references.

^^^ Phenomenal book. I just listened to it on audible, 15 years after initially reading it, and it was just as good and well worth the second go around. Enjoy.

Yeah, Shantaram is so awesome.  Didn't think about the audible version.  Will check that out as a re-read is a pretty big time commitment lol.  As for what is currently on my Kindle and I am in various stages of progress.  Enjoying all of them!

You're just lucky I can't quote you in the WAP version of this site.

The 'Newbury & Hobbes series' by George Mann. British turn of the century Steampunk murder/mysteries. Pretty good series, the first trilogy is out, as is the first book in the second.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

I read Te of Piglet in my first treatment, didn't even realize there was another one! I'll have to nab it.

Drop the rock is fire. I make all my sponsees read it as a part of their 6&7. Real quick read.
