Tales and tails of the Jungle
Review of The Jungle Book - Rudyard Kipling by 2mennycds

Disadvantages: A little archaic

Kipling’s “Just So” and “Jungle Book” stories formed part of my childhood, partly as they were considered children’s classics – but then I am fairly old now! I had some of them read to me, later read them myself, and heard a TV narration of “Rikki Tikki ... Read review

Patterson does it again
Review of Maximum Ride 6 Fang - James Patterson by Ripples248

Advantages: action, thriller,
Disadvantages: Teenage audience

Fang is a great character and this novel is another great example of Patterson's writing finesse. A brutal and thrilling story line, packed with enough fire power and punch to keep even the most action craving mind at bay, and one that had me turning the ... Read review

Advantages: Everything.

Having recently had the opportunity to help my parents to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary, I found this particular book to give them just as a joke as an 'added extra' - although it was in fact within a much larger book, with the 'Don'ts for ... Read review

Avoid mistakes when browsing the garden centre!

It’s spring, and a flush of gardening enthusiasm bursts out like cherry blossom (no, I can’t believe I’ve penned that phrase, either!), you see a flowering plant that looks different and you are sure you will be able to find a place for it somewhere in ... Read review

Nothing New Here
Review of What's New Pussycat? - Alexandra Potter by Soho_Black

Advantages: The words pass by reasonably quickly
Disadvantages: Unrelateable characters, ridiculous situations.

I always enjoy discovering new authors on my wife’s side of the bookcase, although as her tastes tend to lean towards chick-lit, it’s not always an entirely pleasurable experience, particularly as the genre itself tends to be very cliched. But every auth ... Read review

Considered a classic but quite dull.
Review of Human Stain - Philip Roth by taconnelly415

Advantages: Great plot devices
Disadvantages: Gets a bit tedious and boring.

I had been told by some friends that it was the best book they ever read and in a lot of respects it is brilliant. The characters are believable and written with great detail. The plot is thick and the setting very suitable for a thriller. However, desp ... Read review
