The Journey Of The Spirit
Review of Lonesome Traveler - Jack Kerouac by justarube

Advantages: Beautiful writing.
Disadvantages: None.

'Lonesome Traveler' by Jack Kerouac is one of my favourite books. I first discovered the author at the age of sixteen after a celebrity I liked mentioned that they loved Kerouac's most famous novel 'On The Road'. Since my local bookstore did not have 'On ... 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

Review of So... I Met a Demon - Paul McAvoy by cha97michelle

Advantages: Well plotted short story, suitable content for the audience
Disadvantages: bit scary in places, some dialogue felt a bit out of place.

So... I Met a Demon is a short stand alone novel aimed at young adults. This is the third in a loosely linked series of books where a young male central character finds themselves in an unusual and unbelievable situation. Ben's story starts when he is 6 ... 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

A book of 2 halfs - 'More Fool Me' reels you in then disappoints
Review of More Fool Me - Stephen Fry by IzzyS

Advantages: Fairly candid, anecdotes, covers info from previous books, first half
Disadvantages: v strong language used, perhaps too detailed about drug taking, diary extracts aka second half

Cardfight Vanguard: Free Cards (Yay) Naff Comic (Boo)
Review of Cardfight!! Vanguard (Volume 1) - Akira Itou by Dentolux

Advantages: Promotes the message that friends are important. Includes some cards.

Cardfight Vanguard is a comic book series based on a successful trading card game. Over in Japan the use of anime and manga to promote card games is nothing new. In recent times the medium has been used to popularise titles such as Duel Masters and Select ... Read review

Monstrous Regiment; Out of the closet and into the platoon
Review of Monstrous Regiment - Terry Pratchett by ConnemaraBlend

Advantages: Understandable and enjoyable to readers across range of reading skills and language proficiency.
Disadvantages: You usually do better with Pratchett's work if you understand irony and sarcasm.

I have to be honest and be up-front about the fact that I absolutely adore the wordsmithing skills of Sir Terry Pratchett. His vocabulary, his use of nuances, his ability to sketch an entire landscape with a simple sentence is simply superb. I heartily en ... Read review
