    Does anyone know anything about electric hobs? Mine won't heat up at all. The oven's working fine though! Any ideas what it could be?

    I read Day Of The Triffids years ago and from what I remember, enjoyed it. The Kraken Wakes sounds pretty good! How's the writing style? Not too cheesy? I really can't remember his style at all.

    I read "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath in 3 sittings last week. I couldn't put it down but needless to say it was bleak as fuck. Probably not a great book to read in the week leading up to the anniversary of my dad's suicide in retrospect. I found an English copy of Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett in the place I was staying in The Netherlands so I'm currently blasting through that to try and cancel out the misery.

    Also, can anyone recommend any interesting, well written science fiction? Along the lines of Philip K Dick. I've already read the Hugh Howey books everyone's been enjoying lately. Another case where I enjoyed the story and ideas but not the writing style.

    I made a pretty good dent in The Martian by Andy Weir last night. So far the set up and the storyline is great but the style of writing is absolutely awful. It has the potential to be really tense but it seems to be trying to be light hearted, using words like "booya", which just comes across as annoying. Is it too much to ask for a really miserable book about a man slowly dying alone on a deserted planet?

    I just finished No Country For Old Men by Cormack McCarthy. I really enjoyed it but did anyone else find the end dragged a bit?

    I'm after a 26.8mm seatpost in silver. It doesn't need to be super long but not super short either. Beater condition is fine but open to anything that's not too pricey! Probably needs posting to Leeds!
