So, I'm angry again... which means there's probably gonna be a serious of grumblings on here.

The first one concerns a book. Nothing new there. And never has such a short sentence been so true.

In what is being described by the media as a radical departure from literary tradition, Caroline Smailes has written a book with a few different endings.
The hype around this fantastic "new" style of novel is such to the extent it even warranted an interview on the today programme.

Now, I freely admit that I may have been blessed with a better memory than most, but I can't be the only one thinking "What The Fuck?" here... As George Santayana said, Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, and being a child of the 80s I had a grew up with no internet. There was only 4 tv channels & maybe 10 radio stations to entertain me...

...well, that and books of course. So forgive me if I come across like some kind of literary snob, showing off the vast number of tomes I've consumed in my short time on this lump of rock, but I'd be amazed, if like me you're not wondering how it is that the works of Steve Livingstone & Ian Jackson have faded so quickly into the mists of the past.

I cam't be the only person who remembers the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books.
Seriously, there's more than 180 of them!

HOW THE FUCK CAN THIS BE DESCRIBED AS ANYTHING NEW?!
