Undergound - a good degree of information but repetitive in parts
Review of Underground - Haruki Murakami by Nymphypig

Advantages: Good degree of information, gives both sides of the story
Disadvantages: A bit dry and repetitive

...lines of the busy Tokyo underground system, causing 12 deaths, and causing over 5000 people to seek hospital treatment. As an Army brat, I'd always been aware ... Read review

A thriller that makes you think
Review of Gray Mountain - John Grisham by Pointress

Advantages: Thought-provoking
Disadvantages: None - but look out for offers

~~~The two Samanthas~~~This is really the tale of two very different books but with some strangely common threads. On holiday recently, I swapped books with a travel companion who had just finished Sophie Kinsella’s The Undomestic Goddess. I’m n ... Read review

William Shakespeare.
Review of Complete Works of Shakespeare - William Shakespeare by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Everything.
Disadvantages: Nothing.

I enjoy reading immensely, and have a wide ranging taste that includes the more up to date literary offering as well as the more traditional or classic time period also. But it has to be said that quite often I don't really go in for scripts of plays or t ... Read review

Worry Magic - Book Review
Review of Worry Magic - Dawn McNiff by dragon747

Advantages: nice read for younger readers
Disadvantages: none

This was a sweet and interesting read and I thought Dawn McNiff perfectly captured the voice of a twelve year old girl - especially one who is prone to worrying! The story follows Courtney and the mad-eccentrics of her family. Her mother in particular i ... Read review

Fearfully Disappointing
Review of Fear in the Sunlight - Nicola Upson by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Interesting period, mix of real people and fiction
Disadvantages: Weak story/crime aspect, too many characters

I originally purchased this book a few years ago as part of a Kindle 99p deal. It sounded a murder-mystery with a difference, but to be honest I forgot all about it until I went through my old Amazon orders to spot books I’d missed. It is apparently the ... Read review

Excellent by Listerbelle
A strong succinct review that certainly got me interested in the book. I really enjoy the faction genre and this book has escaped me completely. As you might observe, I reviewed a Josephine Tey novel (her last one) earlier this year. by BlackSwan

Changes: Nothing Stays The Same Forever
Review of Changes - Jim Butcher by missrarr

Advantages: Fast paced, emotive plotline, creative as ever, characters at their best
Disadvantages: Wizards - you either love them or you don't.

My profile current reads that I will be doing a few less book reviews for a little bit while I focus on more kitchen related items - it’s mostly because of this series, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. I’m worried that, as I’m reading through the series ... Read review

Review of Little Keith Lemon: Memoirs of Me Childhood - Keith Lemon by xd-o-n-z-x

Advantages: funny, entertaining
Disadvantages: have to like Keith to like it, bit repetitive in places

I find Keith Lemon is very ‘hit and miss’ when it comes to being funny. On Celebrity Juice, he can be very, very funny, however ‘off the programme’, he doesn’t really make me laugh that much. Which is why, when I bought one of his DVDs in the past, I disc ... Read review

Jubilee
Review of Jubilee - Shelley Harris by jules.34

Advantages: A fantastic read.
Disadvantages: Some things in too much detail and the author flicked between past and present too much.

Shelley Harris was born in South Africa to a South African mum and a British dad. Her parents no longer wanted to live under Apartheid and they moved to England in 1973. This is the first book I have read of hers. She has one other book out called 'Vil ... Read review

Angels, three generations, and ghosts
Review of The Third Angel - Alice Hoffman by JOHNV

Advantages: The makings of a good story
Disadvantages: Basically it drifts without really going anywhere

The author Alice Hoffman (born 1952, New York City) has written over twenty novels. The book I found this on the shelves at work and, although I had never heard of the author, I was immediately attracted by the blurb on the back. On first ... Read review

The Truth is Out There...
Review of Holy Cow - David Duchovny by jo-1976

Advantages: Unusual concept, celebrity author
Disadvantages: Not very funny

Okay, it's confession time. I'll admit that I read this book purely to give me an opportunity to enter this month's 'Ciao lottery' - with 'Holy Cow' being the only item amongst this month's selection that caught my eye. After all, a story written from the ... Read review

A Tudor teen witch that keeps flying off the handle!
Review of Witchstruck - Victoria Lamb by Nymphypig

Advantages: Interesting premise, easy enjoyable read
Disadvantages: Characters lack depth and believability, particularly the love interest

I came across Witchstruck as part of my local coffee shops 'Blind date with a book' service - they essentially have a selection of books wrapped in plain brown paper, with a label highlighting the main themes, the themes of this being listed as Tudor hist ... Read review

Review of Revenge - Sharon Osbourne by xd-o-n-z-x

Advantages: easy reading, style of writing
Disadvantages: unoriginaal characters

I love a good read and my favourite genre is chick-lit. I am forever browsing charity shops for books – I hate paying full price for a book and would much rather buy a second hand copy, whilst at the same time supporting a charity. I recently came across ... Read review
