The Hanging Tree - Ben Aaronovitch

The word "bollocks" is one of the most beautiful and flexible in the English language. It can be used to express emotional states ranging from ecstatic surprise to weary resignation in the face of inevitable disaster.

 

I have to say if you did one of those word map thingies showing my most commonly used words, "bollocks" would definitely feature quite heavily. (Along with 'beer', 'hockey', and 'cats').
