That time of year for people to reflect on how the past 12 months have gone. In this one, it would be good to hear what you thought your best book of 2012 was. My own selections are: Non-Fiction "Stumpy and the Auld Sapper" by Rab Orr - one of, if not the, funniest books to come out of Op BANNER! I defy anyone not to find some belly-laughs in between these covers. Fiction "Two Brothers" by Ben Elton - great book and one which I will return to frequently I suspect. Well written, great characterisation and the way he picked up the atmosphere of pre-war Berlin as the Nazis started to use their power is almost frightening. Arty-Farty Vettriano's "Women in Love" for the visual arts and JB Brown's "The Blood of Kings" for written art. There have been quite a few biographies and personal memoires but the one that sticks with me this year was "Tomorrow you Die" by Andy Coogan about his time as a FE POW but also about how he grew up and then lived the rest of his life. It would be good to hear what books other ARRSERs thought stood out this year - over to you.
