There's definitely a theme for 2010! I'm going to re-read my JM Redmann's this year...

Don't wait until 2010, 2nd Left! ;)

For me, the authors I start with will be:
Redmann [I have 2 more to read]
Atwood [I'll start with The Handmaid's Tale]
Griffith [I have The Blue Place and Stay]
Willis [must read All Clear, the continuation of Blackout]
McNab [I have 14 unread books in the Ashton series]

Don't forget to read next The Blind Assassin. I have a hunch you will love the book ;-). It's 5stars.

Fran - Ben Elton huh? He was a BIG left wing stand up comedian in the 1980s, very funny and very political. I was an avid watcher of his show The man from Auntie in the late 80s/ early 90s.

I've read Inconceivable, also a couple of his other novels, they are all highly readable.

Jo, I agree Inconveivable was highly readable. I just found my sympathy disappearing for him as he became more and more of an asshat, so I was quite angry when he got his quite undeserved HEA.
