Nicely written but what are "the full Rider-Waite deck, the Major and Minor Arcana"? Without any knowledge of these things the review isn't all that helpful. Are there pictures on them? by sharper_fin

After the Quake - Murakami's well written book about real people
Review of After the Quake - Haruki Murakami by StewwyB

Advantages: The characters are made real and it's fascinating to read about them
Disadvantages: I'm not used to properly written literature, I'm more of a trashy thriller kind of guy

Introduction I’d heard a buzz about this Japanese guy, Haruki Murakami, who writes these fantastic books and is a bit of an enigma. Such is the obsession with him displayed by his home country’s fans, he fled Japan for 5 years to live as an unkn ... Read review

Review of Millennial Hospitality III - Charles James Hall by Trish1996

Advantages: Unique experiences related in a factual manner.

The Adventures of Harry Pot-Head?
Review of The Casual Vacancy - J. K. Rowling by sharper_fin

Advantages: The author writes really well
Disadvantages: It's grim from cover to cover

First off I'm sorry for the cheap pun in the title but it does have some relevance. In 2012, in a bid to show the world that she was an author who is primarily driven by a need to tell tales and not just sit in her counting house, she published 'The Casua ... Read review
