There's a darkness...
Review of Landfall - Helen Gordon by hiker

Advantages: Intriguing if somewhat slow read
Disadvantages: None

Most people at one time or another of their lives get a feeling that they must kill themselves; as a rule they get over it in a day or two (How Girls Can Build Up The Empire: the handbook for Girl Guides 1912) Excerpts from the handbook precede each s ... Read review

YOU'VE GOT TO WONDER ABOUT SOME PEOPLE . . .
Review of Universally Challenged - Wendy Roby by Pmshack99

Advantages: funny, if you like silly answers you'll love it
Disadvantages: would be hard to read in one go as the format gets old

I'm a big fan of silly humour. Especially when it's completely accidental and/or based on utter stupidity. I've also always loved seeing outtakes of quiz shows or reading about silly answers contestants have given, occasionally because they've panicked, o ... Read review

The Parisian King of Britain
Review of Dirty Bertie: An English King Made in France - Stephen Clarke by JOHNV

Advantages: Amusing, lighthearted and well-researched biography
Disadvantages: Perhaps not the most serious or weighty book on its subject (which will be an advantage for some)

Although he was Anglo-German by birth, so Stephen Clarke suggests, King Edward VII was very much a Parisian by nature. As we would expect from the author of several lighthearted books on our Gallic neighbours [see author paragraph below], this is not the ... Read review

Wow. Just wow.
Review of Pandora's Box - Giselle Green by Kukana

Advantages: Moving story, great characters, raises interesting issues, powerful ending
Disadvantages: Almost impossible to put down, caricatured minor characters

When I started reading 'Pandora's Box' , I thought it would last me at least a week. Instead, I found it to be one of those books that gripped me almost from the beginning. I neglected just about everything else in life to get to the end of this novel, a ... Read review

Michaej J Sullivan: Hollow World not Shallow Word
Review of Hollow World - Michael J. Sullivan by cr01

Advantages: A good old fashioned science fiction world
Disadvantages: None for me

While I like fantasy fiction and read my full share, those stories of sword carrying heroes set in a world about 600 years behind ours can get a tad monotonous. How anyone can feed their brain with a 100% diet of the genre is beyond me. Thus when I heard ... Read review
