Adventures On The High Teas I found very disappointing and really quite boring compared to his first travel book, Pies and Prejudice, which I loved.
If you have any interest whatsoever into the social history of WW2 or of London, London At War by Philip Ziegler is a must-read. A large book, I thoroughly enjoyed every page.
The Watchman was a good re-read, as are all Chris Ryan's books, if you like military thrillers.
Shopped was a jaw-breakingly good insight into the devious inner workings and machinations of supermarkets and their impact on the food producers of Britain. I was appalled at the tactics big chains use to intimidate, browbeat and ultimately coerce food producers. It was a sad and shameful read.
I am becoming a firm fan of Gervase Phinn's wonderful books about his life as a School Inspector in Yorkshire, and was thrilled to find not one but two books in the last ten days in the local charity shops; both were delightful :-)
A Right To Be Merry is a delightful book, written by a RC Poor Clare Nun pre-Vatican 2, describing her life as an enclosed Choir Nun and her musings about God. She was obviously a woman of sound common sense and quite extraordinarily insightful intellect, and so much of what she says is pertinent today to those seeking to love God more. I originally read this as a teenager, and was so happy to find an almost pristine hardback copy on Ebay.........
