'Gone Girl' - Gillian Flynn. I'm still trying to decide who-done-it, the husband or not and don't dare anybody tell me.

This is going to hurt

An ex-NHS Doctors diary from his time on the wards.
His first book that spent over 6 months on the best-seller list. (last count 3/4 million sales) not bad for a first book

A proper laugh out loud book interspersed with tear jerkers.
As you can imagine, all sorts wander into hospitals.....

To my surprise, it didn't end in a death . Maybe I shouldn't have said that.

'A Dark So Deadly' - Stuart McBride. A weird book - some horrific crime stuff but a lot of humour.

Can anyone tell me the name of that Agatha Christie book where there's a murder, a full-length investigation and finally they work out who it was?

None of the books involve "they" working out who it was. Generally it's only a detective. Since most of the time they are solved by amateur/retired detectives you would argue that many don't involve a full-length investigation either.

Don't spoil a gag. I once had a line, 'What's the funniest thing Woody Allen ever did? Bonk his daughter.' It was repeatedly pointed out that she was rechnically etc, but this would spoil the fun: 'What's the funniest thing Woody Allen ever did? Bonk someone who was not actually his daughter but could legitimately be considered one in that their relationship...'
I know this is awful but I had to laugh: 'When Conrad submitted 'The Nigger of the Narcissus' to publishers, they objected to the word 'nigger' in the title, not because it was deemed offensive, but because they thought a book about a black man would not sell.' OUCH!

I'm writing my autobiography, 'My Struggle Against Anorexia'. Spolier alert... It's not so much sex and drugs and rock and roll, more Razzle, Sainsbury's wine and Geri Halliwell.
