Okay, so Plan M has started about ten new threads since his reinstatement, so I thought there would be no harm in me starting this one. I have periods where I read three or four books in a month, and periods where I don't read anything (but FourFourTwo magazine) for six months. But after completing Bioshock on Xbox 360, and absolutely loving the storyline (it's one of those that makes you want to pulverise the guy you discover at the end, very emotionally involving), I really want a good book for Christmas. The last book that made me oooh and aaah was the Bourne Identity series, I loved that. There's only two kinds of books that I want (seeing as I've already been given five autobiographies for my birthday); firstly, a story with a shocking twist that turns everything on it's head at some point, and secondly, a World War II allied soldier's story (non-fictional obviously). Any recommendations?
