Keeping in the spirit of things:

[b]Games I often quote as my favourite games of all time despite never finishing them without cheating which I've finally managed to complete[/b]

Wonderboy 3: The Dragon's Trap.

As requested:

The secret history: A reverse murder mystery set in a ancient greek class in an american university in the 60's. Well writen with a touch of voyerism on teh live of the rich for good measure. Recomended.

Against a Dark Background – good si-fi. Felt like it was the begining of a series (which I now HAVE to find). Recomended if you like Si-fi.

Mr Nice – The autobiography/poassible dramitisation of the life of Howard Marks. About his life as a pot smuggler. Born in Wales. Went to oxford. Head of international drug smuggling ring and "all round nice guy" apparently unfairly targets by the US DEA. Recomended.

Traitors Sun – Book from teh Dark Over series. I am really enjoying it but I would only recomend it if you are familiar with the series and have read the book that come before it as it is name and past reference heavy.

Lonely Planet unpacked – Pulp fiction. Light and without impact. So dont go out of you way for this one. 😉
