Damn Funny... For a While
Review of Damn You, Autocorrect! - Jillian Madison by sharper_fin

Advantages: A brilliantly funny idea
Disadvantages: It gets very repetative

Anyone who has the predictive texting option set on their phone will know the scenario. You type a message that you think is wholly appropriate and then press send. All is well. It's only afterwards that you realise that what you sent wasn't actually wha ... Read review

Disappointing Tony Hill book from McDermid; still worth a read
Review of Beneath The Bleeding - Val Mcdermid by pmcds

Advantages: Free flowing
Disadvantages: Lacks substance

It had been a while since I had read a Val McDermid book, and even longer that her recurring character of profiler Tony Hill had been in one. Having been made into a TV series with Robson Green playing Hill, the automatic mind's eye then reverts to type a ... Read review

He's not a Sex Pistol, he's a very angry boy...
Review of Anger Is An Energy - John Lydon by sharper_fin

Advantages: It's in John's words
Disadvantages: John doesn't necessarily tell the stories most readers would want to hear

When I was a boy John Lydon was known as Johnny Rotten and was the lead singer in a band called the Sex Pistols. He was angry. When I was a young adult John Lydon was the lead singer in a band called Public Image Ltd. He was angry. When I became a middl ... Read review

The Title Says It All
Review of Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick by MentalSarcasm

Advantages: Well written, in-depth explanations about North Korea, difficult to put down
Disadvantages: None, except an uneasy sense that you really need to count your blessings.

I originally spotted this book in Waterstones back in May. After skim-reading a few pages I decided not to buy it, I'd already bought three other books that holiday and it seemed a bit daft to buy more. Since that day I've noticed it numerous times, and e ... Read review

Bombay Mix
Review of Narcopolis - Jeet Thayil by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Shortlisted for 'The Man Booker Prize' in 2012.
Disadvantages: Nothing like an early W S Burroughs, sadly

292 pages Publishing House: Faber and Faber Limited Published in 2012 - - - Old Bombay, (well, not that old) is the Bombay of the 1970s, it was awash with slum living; a perfect illustration for a William Burroughs book. The dens were opiate, dest ... Read review

Christmas at Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop
Review of Christmas at Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop - Jenny Colgan by jules.34

Advantages: A great read
Disadvantages: Found Rosie and Stephen's relationship hard to imagine

This is the follow up book to 'Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop of Dreams'. I read the first book previously but I do not actually think that it would matter if you had missed out the first book - this book stands as a good book on its own and I really don't thin ... Read review

The Public's Library
Review of Library services by sharper_fin

Advantages: It's still there!
Disadvantages: Nobody says "shhhhhh!" any more

A Twisted Truth To Uncover
Review of Tell Me - Lisa Jackson by gothic_moon

Advantages: Interesting 'nitty gritty' storyline that keeps you guessing
Disadvantages: A tad slow at times perhaps, premise & some character development could have been stronger

Having read and reviewed a few Jackson novels, I was quite looking forward to this one. Whilst it was a little weak at times, I felt, as far as the premise goes, it was an engaging read and one I’d recommend. Tell Me falls within the crime thriller genre ... Read review
