I am Danny Murphy.................whoops!
Review of I am the Secret Footballer - Anonymous by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good summer read
Disadvantages: Not revalatory enough

So who is the Secret Footballer? Well there are enough clues in the book to confirm he is not black so that cuts it down to 75% of the remaining players and not foreign and so down to the last 40%. He is articulate and intelligent enough to write an engag ... Read review

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies - How Could It Go Wrong...?
Review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Jane Austen, Seth Grahame-Smith by missrarr

Advantages: You sort of have read Pride And Prejudice - go forth and be smug
Disadvantages: You've read Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. Now you have to hide the fact.

Review of The Hidden Life of Wolves - Jim Dutchner by Marge3781

Advantages: Shed new life on the alpha dog myths, beautiful photos, very informative.
Disadvantages: Printed cover would have been nice.

From the time my children were able to speak, I have given them a "book allowance". A couple of times each month they are allowed to choose anything they would like to read from Amazon and I pay for it. This book was chosen by my youngest son, age 6, as h ...
