Quality Queens Book
Review of Four Queens The Provencal Sisters Who Ruled Europe - Nancy Goldstone by MentalSarcasm

Advantages: Interesting subject, easy to read but still gives lots of information
Disadvantages: Frequent second-guessing about thoughts and feelings of those involved

As part of research for my eBook series, and because I enjoy reading about other areas of history, I buy and read quite a lot of history books. One of the best ones I’ve read this year is “Four Queens: The Provencal Sisters Who Ruled Europe” by Nancy Gold ... Read review

Play Pen New Children 's Book Illustration Martin Salisbury
Review of Play Pen - Martin Salisbury by frankieb1992

Advantages: Detailed book of great children's illustrations
Disadvantages: Is A Bit Overpriced

Play pen by Martin Salisbury was released in 2007 and published by Lawrence King. A book that is quite expensive to buy but is well worth the price you pay as it has lots of great uses. I found my copy at a car boot for a £1 off a photography student. Th ... Read review

Puny white boy becomes king of the jungle swingers!
Review of Tarzan of the Apes - Edgar Rice Burroughs by Mauri

Advantages: A real page turner
Disadvantages: Some of the attitudes expressed are old fashioned to the modern reader

In western literature there are many examples of characters and stories that have since their first introduction become part of our everyday popular culture. So when we speak of Frankenstein, Dracula and Sherlock Holmes the vast majority of people know wh ... Read review

The compelling story of Anne Neville and Richard III
Review of The Kingmaker's Daughter - Philippa Gregory by RebeccaLovesBooks

Advantages: Compelling. Exciting. Emotional. Hard to put down.
Disadvantages: None for me.

I follow her up the long aisle of the cathedral, the dazzling stained-glass window making a carpet of colour beneath my feet,as if I were walking over the sun in splendour. It strikes me it is the second time that my mother has presented me to a Queen of ... Read review

Mark Lawrence plays it safe with Prince of Fools
Review of Prince of Fools - Mark Lawrence by cr01

Advantages: Solid fantasy fiction with a believable world
Disadvantages: Too similar to what has come before

While I’d love to write a published book one day, I confess that I’m lazy after working all day and I find it far easier to rattle off a self published review on an evening rather than continue on the long straight and narrow with one of the two half comp ... Read review

Racy memoirs, young love, and a champion pig
Review of Heavy Weather - P.G. Wodehouse by JOHNV

Advantages: One of the best of the Blandings saga
Disadvantages: For fans of this author, none

Having re-read several P.G. Wodehouse books and also enjoyed a handful for the first time during the last few years, it seems to me that his writing was at his best during the 1920s and 1930s. It is as if he really hit his stride at around that time and ... Read review

Amazing Fantasy Trilogy
Review of His Dark Materials Trilogy - Philip Pullman by Skyleer

Advantages: Great plot and characters
Disadvantages: Slow at the beginning

I recently finished the trilogy and I think it's absolutely amazing. I loved the storyline and the characters were creative. The plot in general was slow, for me, in the beginning parts of The Golden Compass but I thought it was a great book. The fact tha ... Read review

You need to write clearly in paragraphs and try to evaluate the pros and cons in a conclusion at the end. Try describing where,and why you bought it and the costs. Something about the history of why it was written and some author background. some plot (ie Harry potter is about a boy who discovers he has a magical abilty and goes to a wizarding school called hogwats, but an evil presence is felt in the school, with the help of his new found friends...) see what I mean you could write 100 words minimum about the plot without spoiling it. Then say what the book brought in terms of thrills or other things (Of Mice and men highlighted prejudice of the 1930s). Then conclude , message me on my guestbook when you've changed it a little. Then you can message me telling me when you've tweaked it! by DodoRabbit
