The wellspring of death
Review of Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death - M.C. Beaton by euphie

Advantages: Okay read
Disadvantages: Annoying characters, quite short, not much detail and easy to guess the murderer

Review of Brent Weeks' Black Prism
Review of Black Prism - Brent Weeks by LauraJN

Advantages: imaginative, creative, interesting, unique
Disadvantages: it's an epic fantasy which means it's extra long. This might be a disadvantage for some people

The magic Weeks created specifically for this world is intriguing and creative. Magic comes from light so unless you can see certain colors of light and see it well, you can't use that magic. Each color has its own unique ability and texture and only one ... Read review

Review of Low Life - Jeremy Clarke by hiker

Advantages: None unless you're a Spectator Fan
Disadvantages: Not entertaining enough to really warrant the money

This collection of Spectator columns is subtitled One Middle-Aged Man In Search of the Point, but really it's more a case of accepting that there isn't one. I'm not a Spectator reader – indeed other than seeing on the shelves I'm ashamed to say that b ... Read review

Nasty Noel and the Haircut spat
Review of Oasis the Truth: My Life as Oasis's Drummer - Tony McCarroll by StewwyB

Advantages: Drummers are often the unheard ones at the back, so it's good to have his side of the story

"book brings together all of the principals of the teachings and techniques of yoga". As aBible of Yoga I would expoect the book to cover they types of yoga, does it cover the ancient Sanskrit versions, the modern versions of Asana's and pranayama? Does it cover the different masters versions, the traditional Hindu cultural versions, the westernised spiritual and exercise only style versions? etc etc, if it is a Bible of Yoga all this and more should be included, yet not mentioned in the review. by LiveMusicLoverLyn
