About Time
Review of Thief of Time - Terry Pratchett by hiker

Advantages: Thought-provoking despite the delightful silliness
Disadvantages: none

I really want to have a favourite Discworld novel, but I struggle even to come up with a favourite character. I utterly respect the Witches: especially Granny W (who'd dare not to do so) but also Margrat and Agnes for daring to be themselves and stand u ... Read review

A Talented Writer but a Disappointing Book
Review of Depraved Heart - Patricia Cornwell by LauraMcCabeUK

Advantages: Its another 'Kay Scarpetta' Novel
Disadvantages: Too long, Didn't enjoy the plot

This book, though well written, Cornwell could have done better. I do feel for such a well-established writer as herself this book was long and drawn out. When in fact it could have been shorter. The completed hardcover copy is 466 pages long and in ess ... Read review

Could do with a bit more detail about the writing style, maybe a brief synopsis, specific points of the book that were well written/not so well written and your verdict on them! Good start tho by JaydonNolan

A Pretty Good Read!
Review of Pretty Girls - Karin Slaughter by gothic_moon

Advantages: Excellent writing style, engaging characters, vivid scenes, tense plot
Disadvantages: None for me

I was geekily excited when I picked this book up. As a fan of Slaughter, I was overjoyed to find a book, and a fairly hefty one at that, that I hadn’t yet read. I was looking forward to this as my post-op read, and I wasn’t disappointed. On the cover we ... Read review

"Scathed but unbroken"
Review of Gone to Ground - Marie Jalowicz Simon by 2mennycds

Advantages: Well translated, compelling, from harrowing to uplifting
Disadvantages: Disturbing; many names - hard to keep track

The subtitle of this book is accurate but incomplete, in my opinion: “One woman’s extraordinary account of survival in the heart of Nazi Germany”. It is the story of a JEWISH woman who lived in hiding in Berlin throughout the Nazi regime, form its rise t ... Read review

Excellent review by Mauri
It sounds like a very moving read and I can imagine that as her tale progresses you're absolutely routing for her to remain a decent human being even after all she's been through and suffered at the hands of the Nazis. by Bollinger28

Heaven is for real a great story to read
Review of Heaven Is for Real - Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent by Oldies909

Advantages: It's a cute fun story that everyone will love.
Disadvantages: None that I can think of.

It all started one day when my mom read this book and loved it and recommended that I do the same. Never a big fan of religious books I was skeptical at first. I read the back of the book and asked her what it was about and was convinced that maybe I sho ... Read review

Relax with Art
Review of Relax with Art Colouring Books - Unique Magazines by cath_del

Advantages: good designs, fair price, available at local supermarkets, good quality paper
Disadvantages: are other options from shops such as The Works (hardback versions/more intricate)

Relax with Art is a colouring book that is released every month. I was first given these as a way to kill time during rehearsals for a show. Since then, they've become fun ways to pass the time and as a way to keep busy and occupied. Price Relax w ... Read review

Life on Mars, but not as expected
Review of The Martian - Andy Weir by siberian-queen

Advantages: something a bit different
Disadvantages: wasn't edge of your seat exciting

The Martian by Andy Weir I think I might like this book from the first line “I’m f***ked” The story starts by delving straight to the heart of the matter and reasons why he is “f***ked” as he puts it! Set out in a clear and concise language and manne ... Read review

Review of You and Me, Always - Jill Mansell by jules.34

Advantages: A great read
Disadvantages: Cannot think of any

As usual, Jill Mansell has written another brilliant book - I have read them all so far and they are all of the same theme - light hearted chic lit. The main character in this book is Lily, who turns 25 at the beginning of the book. Lily lost her mum ... Read review

The confessions of Dick Swiveller - A Curious Shop Indeed
Review of The Old Curiosity Shop - Charles Dickens by cr01

Advantages: An interesting read
Disadvantages: Prepare for quite a long haul

When it was the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens birth in 2012, I promised myself that I’d take time out to read all of his novels, given that I’d only ever read a scant couple. Four years on I’ve just completed my first, his 1840-41 written work, The ... Read review

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is a VERY funny book.
Review of The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy - Douglas Adams by cameronamr

Advantages: Incredibly Funny
Disadvantages: Not Suitable for younger children

In my opinion, the best books are the ones that make you laugh. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy made me laugh a lot, and is therefore my favorite book of all time. I think that nowadays, a lot of books essentially have the the same plot. The plot of ... Read review

Welcome to Ciao, this is a really good start! Think about what you’d want to know before making a purchasing decision and write it out for others; a brief plot summary, writing style, characters, themes, etc can all be covered. Why did you love it or hate it. Aim for 500 words as your base minimum word count. Lower than that and you will be scraping H's where the money here is in the VH's and above.
