Jason Roche, author of How to Murder a Boyband, shares his favourite books about bands of boys.
1. The Lord of The Rings by JRR Tolkien
Despite Arwen’s “claim” bravado and Galadriel’s imposing channelling of Medusa (both absent from the novel btw), the trilogy is essentially a band of boys swanning around Middle Earth. Granted, the greatest telling of any adventure ever.
2. A Game of Thrones (book series)by George RR Martin
Power females in more bountiful supply, but who was rooting for Daenerys over Jon at the end? The books are way superior to the latter stages of the TV show, with the anticipation of the remaining two novels high. Let’s hope George RR springs surprises, with Jon’s merry boyband of Wildlings making a comeback!
3. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
