A candle in the dark.
Review of To Sail a Darkling Sea - John Ringo by Coloneljohn

Advantages: A very realistic, thought provoking and entertaining read.
Disadvantages: Some would be put off by the science fiction nature of the story.

An overview so far. Since the 'zombie plague' struck, the world has changed greatly. We may be familiar with images from space of our planet glowing with artificial light during the hours of darkness. After the plague all is dark except for one small lig ... Read review

Review of The Fat Chance Guide to Dieting (Kindle Edition) - Claudia Pattison by Pmshack99

Advantages: funny, good characterisation, i do enjoy reading about diets
Disadvantages: none

Often, when I'm trying to induce a health kick, I feel it's a good idea to start reading fiction about people on diets. So when I saw that Claudia Pattison had wrote a new book, her first in AGES (although apparently she has been writing under another nam ... Read review

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe
Review of Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe - Jenny Colgan by jules.34

Advantages: A brilliant read.
Disadvantages: Cannot think of any

I have read a few Jenny Colgan books now and this - like the others - does not fail to please. She writes really enjoyable, laid back reads with characters in it that you would like to know in real life. This book is the follow up to 'Meet me at the C ... Read review

A clear and illuminating book
Review of A River Out of Eden - Richard Dawkins by tortoise169

Advantages: Clear and witty style; broad coverage of the topic; authoritative and accurate information
Disadvantages: "Essay" style means no topic is covered in depth; mostly repetition of earlier work

A River Out of Eden is one of the least well known of Dawkins' books, made up of five distinct essays that each address an aspect of evolutionary biology. He writes in his usual witty and lucid style, shedding light on the theory of evolution for the mode ... Read review

A very diverting read if a little light on details
Review of Poptastic! - Tony Blackburn by IzzyS

Advantages: Quite a diverting/entertaining read, very candid, good (if brief in parts) overview of his career
Disadvantages: Index, slightly simplistic elements / sense of arrogance perhaps?, glosses over some of his career

- Background/Introduction - Given I decided to review the other books I've read about Radio Caroline and having seen this book is in Ciao's catalogue, I thought I may as well go for it since I read it in June. This was the first book I bought after heari ... Read review
