Budget Busting Jack!
Review of A Girl Called Jack 100 Delicious Budget Recipies - Jack Monroe by Chippytarka

Advantages: Honest, informative and showcased imagination with recipes
Disadvantages: None

As a cook, I would say I am competent. I can cook basic things, I can bake quite well. Having a young family has meant that cooking from scratch for at least 5 out of the 7 days of a week is very important to me, and I am always looking for inspiration. T ... Read review

Islam is not terorist
Review of Islam - Karen Armstrong by mozafa

Advantages: This book is very usefull for peace between religion
Disadvantages: no disadventige

I think all of religions around the world always teach the goodness to their follower. No religion with the bad teachings in this world. The differents between all of religions were in their Trust and ordinances of worship. Let's take an example: Joseph i ... Read review

I agree with you completely. If this review were placed under Islam in general I would be able to rate higher, but I am afraid this tells me very little about this book. Perhaps you might want to consider writing separate reviews? The first could tell us more about this book in particular. Then you might consider telling us about Islam in general Under all things beginning with the letter I - http://www.ciao.co.uk/Everything_that_starts_with_I__5192007 Personally, I love learning about different faiths - I've even tried to read the Koran but it had to go back to the library before I finished - still I know you are speaking the truth about Islam not teaching hate. Neither does Christianity but we end up hating even other Christians over differences in belief. I would really love to hear your perspective on your religion. Next you might consider writing under the Koran : http://www.ciao.co.uk/The_Koran__5663045 Finally, not to be harsh, I realise English is not your first language, but this site does expect a certain standard in English. May I suggest using a spell checker, and taking your time with the reviews. I'd be more than happy to help if you like - but I can be slow to reply as illness means I can not be online every day. Also if you do write more reviews , leave me a message I'd be happy to pop in with a rate. Peace to you as well. I wish I could join you in wishing peace to the world, but it all seems so hopeless to me. I am afraid hatred is just to entrenched, but it would be lovely if it could happen. by Marge3781
I have to agree with Richada - the English does not make for easy reading. Also, you do not appear to have actually reviewed the book which should have been the point of the exercise. by hiker

Didn't Leave Me In A Spin
Review of Twirlymen: The Unlikely History of Cricket's Greatest Spin Bowlers - Amol Rajan by Soho_Black

Advantages: Impeccable in the level of detail
Disadvantages: Does fail to entertain

Although they may lack the bang and bluster of the fast bowlers, the three leading wicket takers of all time in Test cricket are all spinners. They may look calmer in their run ups and action, but the effect they put on the ball can be incredible. Rathe ... Read review

Fogarty
Review of Fogarty: A City of London Thriller - J Jackson Bentley by euphie

Advantages: Good read for 77p, good characters
Disadvantages: Would have preferred to have read more around the riots

I had read two books from this author that I got free for the Kindle version.  I enjoyed both those books so I decided that when I saw this book for 77p on the Amazon Kindle store, I’d give it a go.    This book is set in London in August 2011 with the b ... Read review

Advantages: Interesting enough and feels honest
Disadvantages: Doesn't give a lot of new information
