Or,

I, Partridge - Alan Partridge

Both books have their merits.

It depends on what you like to read.
I've read 'Iron Druid Chronicles'' and couldn't stop. Same goes for B. Aaronovitch 'Rivers of London' Series. Both are Fantasy, but very good written and funny as well.

I'm a fan of J. Nivens 'The Second coming'. Jesus is born again and tries to bring peace. If you are very religous, it's definitely not your book.
My all time favourite is : Eddie's Bastard by W. Kowalski. Grumpy old man finds baby on his porch. There's a note on it, that says Eddie's Bastard.

I'll read just about any subject. I suppose I like historical/period stories, bio's (Frank, get on that) mysteries and a touch of sci-fi.

I also have a cat problem. ;) I wore my Cat Flag (Black Flag) shirt to Frank's show on Sun night and got loads of compliments. I guess we're in good company. So far I'm digging the Old Man Who.... And I, Partridge (hes a funny bastard) But I will check this cat story out. Meow.
