Good work Lilo, although I'm not sure about this "skimmed the last few chapters" stuff. Given the quality of the book in question though, it's probably acceptable
1. Mostly Harmless
by Douglas Adams - 229pp [ebook]
2. I Am Legend
by Richard Matherson - 180pp [ebook]
3. The Drowned World
by JG Ballard - 158pp [ebook]
Weird. Fairly scientifically detailed, but with some silly errors too, although I accept they could have been the characters making those errors. Anyway it was an engaging plot, about a world devastated by global warming, collapsed civilisation, devastating heat etc. but the ending was disappointing (I might almost say non-existent). I liked the start a lot more than when the drama began to unfold though - it had a very "On the Beach" feel about it.
