The title of his autobiography was “My Real Life In The Cartoon World Of Wrestling”. It was written to be read by people who know that pro wrestling is “fake”. Bret assumes the readers know how the wrestling business works, and he doesn’t go into any detail about what is “fake”; he assumes we already know. The book is about his life, in and out of, the ring.

What was the worst wrestling book you ever read? Don’t give me the “OMG books are stupid..” answer..In my opinion It would be “Under The Mat” by Diana HartJust a terrible, horribly written book..It looks like it was written by some trouble-making teen.with a five year olds grammar, and a pervert old mans mind. If you’re interested in reading about peoples sex life, then this is the book for you.
Stone Cold’s :the Stone Cold truth.It was alright,decent enough,but from the others that i have read,i felt this was the weakest.

What are some small towns that have a small population? I want to write a book where the characters live in a small town and everyone knows each other. Kind of like that show Hart of Dixie but I’d rather it not be a country town kind of like Gilmore Girls. Does anyone know any?Tim do you know what a jerk is? Hint: Look in the mirror!But i’m looking for a specific small town that meets the criteria I want and a map won’t tell you that but of course you don’t know that since you aren’t as smart as you seem to think you are.
A small town is defined by a small population. Look at a map.On a map big cities are named using large print, small towns use tiny letters.You will find thousands of small towns.Do you know what a map is?

Jackson Ohio, Waverly Ohio, Ashville Ohiobut if you ar going to write about a small town spend some time thereevery small town has its own personality

What I like to do, is make my own town, that way it can be whatever you like. Pick a State that you like (if you are doing the U.S. that is) and give it a name. For example, “the town of privelidge was small, and not usually put on maps, but the best town I had ever had the privilege of visiting.” It also helps to pick a state that isn’t all city, or well known. Some people prefer to have a real town to use so that the readers have something to visualise, but this does give you more opportunity to use awesome vocabulary to describe it yourself.

Hum in Croatia, It’s population is only 17 people! I’m sure everyone will know eachother there!Hope I’ve helped and good look with your story.

My sister is in her forties, is there any books that would be good for her? Please don’t mentipon Mills and Boon, she is not senile.Or Dan Brown’s books, she is not illiterate or stupid and prefers well-written books.Or Harry Potter, she is not a child.Yes, I mispelt mention, and anyone who mentions it will be reported.This is my sister’s guidelines, not mine.
depends what she likes. has she read “my sisters keeper” by jodi picoult?i really enjoyed that one, great twist in the end.if she likes something with a harder edge, mandasue heller has a few good books, quite similar to martina cole but not quite as predictable.

I am in my forty’s too! (well nearly) What are her interests? You only say her age! Is that all she is to you?You go on to say she’s not illiterate! Are you saying that people who read Mills and Boon, Harry Potter and are over 40 are?Some people who read these books do it because they need to relax from their busy lives. They are in touch with their inner child and are happy to do fun things.I suggest you buy a book for yourself on ageism and a dictionary!

I’m sure I answered this question the other day. When I mentioned Mills & Boon I wasn’t implying your sister was senile. I wouldn’t even help you with your question again as I think you are rude.

Anything by Martina Cole. enjoyed by all ages. check her out. I recommend as a starting point a book called dangerous lady, then Maura’s game (the follow up).She writes about east end crime (fiction). She has made £20 million over the years from her books hey are just fantasic.

It depends what she likes – age isn’t really the best clue to these things. I would find out a few authors that she likes, and then ask at the library or bookshop for similar authors.I can recommend some well-written books – Margaret Atwood’s The Robber Bride or The Handmaid’s Tale, Lionel Shriver’s “We Need To Talk About Kevin” or “The Post-Birthday World” but that’s only modern fiction – she might like sci-fi or fantasy or non-fiction or historical or even children’s book (lots of adults do and they are well-written).

Don’t see what age has to do with anything, I have read books that have been recommended to me by my dad as we both enjoy similar styles of writing.Try ‘Tell No One’ by Harlan Coben, ‘Keeping Faith’ by Jodi Picoult or any of the Kathy Reichs books.Happy reading

It depends a lot on her taste in books. but, I’m in the same age range, and I can give you some books I’ve read.and thoroughly enjoyed.older books first, in case she hasn’t read them:Stone From The River, Ursula HegiThe Agony and the Ecstasy, Irving StoneThe Girl With The Pearl Earring, Tracy ChevalierGiants in the Earth, Ole Edvart RolvaagMemoirs of a Geisha, Arthur GoldenThe Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kiddnew books.The Memory Keepers Daughter, Kim EdwardsA Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini (wrote The Kite Runner, another I’d suggest)Love in the Time of Cholera, Gabriel Garcia MarquezThe Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield

I am an older are some books that I have enjoyed in the past several months;Firefly Lane by Kristin HannanhHonor Thyself by Danielle SteelPaper Hearts by Debrah WilliamsonA Thousand Spendid Suns by Khaled HosseiniThe Lavender Hour by Anne D. LeClaireKeeping the House by Ellen BakerWater for Elephants by Sara GruenThe Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk KiddThe Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk KiddGarden Spells by Sarah Addison AllenThe Friendship Cake by Lynne HintonThe Surroagte by Judith Henry WallThe Joy Luck Club by Amy TanMemoirs of a Geisha by Srthur GoldenThe Secret Between Us by Barbara DelinskyFamily Tree by Barbara DelinskyWoman in Red by Eileen GoudgeDream When You’re Feeling Blue by Elizabeth BergSummer Sisters by Juby BlumeWhite Oleander by Janet FitchThe Lovely Bones by Alice SeboldAlmost Moon by Alice SeboldDown River by John HartToo Late for Goodbye by Linwood BarclayAlmost Graceland by Steve CarlsonThem by Nathan McCallFrancesca’s Kitchen by Peter PezzelliEvery Sunday by Peter PezzelliTallgrass By Sandra DallasThe Red Tent by Anita DiamantSnow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa SeeThe Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwardsthis series by Lisa Wingate is so good:Good Hope RoadTending RosesThe Language of SycamoresDrenched in LightA Thousand VoicesThis trilogy by Robyn Carr is great!Virgin RiverShelter MountainWhispering RockBooks by the following authors are also good;Debbie MacomberSusan WiggsKristin HannahLuanne RiceDanielle SteelRobyn CarrKimberly Cates

Certainly – get her started on the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Wittingly clever books, in my opininon. And suspensful! Begins with ‘One for the Money.’Or ‘The Hours’ by Michael Cunningham.Or ‘Water for Elephants’ by Sara Gruen.

I would suggest anything by James Michener, especially Hawaii, Centennial & Texas. He begins his books way back in history (like the building of the islands by the volcanos, & the development of flora & fauna) & this can seem irrelevant & dry, but stick with it!! This will all become imprtant as you go through the story. I think he’s an AWESOME author, & I find myself reading his books over & over, because every time I find something new to appreciate. If it matters, I’m in my 50s, started reading his books at 15, so he has wide appeal..

Robb, Sharyn McCrumb, Gwendoline Butler, Sue Grafton, Margaret Truman, and many many more.If she lives Romance – There is a list authors/titles including:Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter, Sandra Brown, Barbara Delinsky, Jo Beverley, Mary Jo Putney, Debbie Macomber, Julie Garwood, Dorothy Garlock, and many more.If have two lists of classics including works by Steinbeck, Hemingway, Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, Anton Chekhov, Leo Tolstoy, Jack London, Mark Twain, and many more.Here are a few of the classics she may not have already read.Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888; American) – Rose’s father has died leaving her an orphan.

Hey mention! sorry couldn’t resist it as you pointed it out!Depends what genre she likes.I love Stephen King (his older stuff)Richard LaymonDean KoontzFor my horror fixes (though Dean does some good thriller stuff too ‘Lightening’)John Connelly Harry Bosch Novels – all of them are pretty goodVoid Moon (loved this one!)For my crime fix. Appart from that I’ve got to admit I’m a bit of a library browser and will read anything that catches me from Virginia Andrews to Philip Pullman, so really doesn’t matter what age or genre it is. Best WishesKez xp.s Dan Brown is a dunce with a bloody good agent! Wish I could get an agent like that!

I don’t know about age-wise but a few perennial favourites:- Anything by Ian McEwan – if she likes films she might’ve already seen Atonement, or even Enduring Love, so that might be a good place to start.- The French Lieutenant’s Woman – John Fowles- The Grapes of Wrath or East of Eden – John Steinbeck – anything by Steinbeck is amazing, but East of Eden was my particular favourite.If you don’t think she’ll be too, um, ‘patronised’ by its merest mention.I have a special place in my heart for the James Herriot books, which were by turns moving and funny and always entrancing.
