Nothing New Here
Review of What's New Pussycat? - Alexandra Potter by Soho_Black

Advantages: The words pass by reasonably quickly
Disadvantages: Unrelateable characters, ridiculous situations.

I always enjoy discovering new authors on my wife’s side of the bookcase, although as her tastes tend to lean towards chick-lit, it’s not always an entirely pleasurable experience, particularly as the genre itself tends to be very cliched. But every auth ... Read review

Considered a classic but quite dull.
Review of Human Stain - Philip Roth by taconnelly415

Advantages: Great plot devices
Disadvantages: Gets a bit tedious and boring.

I had been told by some friends that it was the best book they ever read and in a lot of respects it is brilliant. The characters are believable and written with great detail. The plot is thick and the setting very suitable for a thriller. However, desp ... Read review

7 remarkable feats that transformed millions of lives
Review of Seven Wonders of the Industrial World - Deborah Cadbury by 2mennycds

Advantages: Intriguing selection, easy and gripping read
Disadvantages: Hard to source

Even if we can’t name them (and I won’t show off by doing so!), many of us will have heard of the “Seven Wonders Of The World”, commonly held iconic structures of the ancient world, most of which have long since disappeared with little or no remaining t ... Read review

Now there's one heck of a coincidence, I have been struggling through a (1956) publication on The Great Eastern for weeks now! Another superb review subject, even if perhaps I would add Bournville rather than Cadbury as the eighth wonder! R. by RICHADA

One Firefighters story of how he survived 911
Review of Last Man Down. The Fireman's Story - Richard Picciotto by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Highly informative & interesting.
Disadvantages: None.

When I am called to duty, God, Wherever flames may rage; Give me strength to save some life, Whatever be its age. This is the first verse in The Fireman's Prayer poem. Introduction When 911 happened, I can clearly remember what I was do ... Read review

Not Famous, But Certainly Not Dead
Review of Dead Famous - Ben Elton by Soho_Black

Advantages: Quick and easy reading
Disadvantages: One dimensional characters

I remember when Ben Elton was a stand-up comedian and hated pretty much everything that was popular or part of the establishment. Given his history, when “Big Brother” launched in the UK in 2000 and became an immediate hit, it wasn’t a surprise when Elto ... Read review

Decent book
Review of The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins by paolaser

Advantages: The plot is fast-moving and with some real surprises.
Disadvantages: the ending was flat

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s eve ... Read review

I adore the story line, more than the writing.
Review of Insurgent - Veronica Roth by RosalynBurgess

Advantages: A great sequal`
Disadvantages: i would have like to see more Tris and Four

In Insurgent we get to learn more about the other factions. We already know about Dauntless and Abnegation but now time is spent among Amity, Candor, Erudite and the Factionless. Honestly Tris drove me crazy through most of this book. Although the choice ... Read review

Review of Divergent - Veronica Roth by RosalynBurgess

Advantages: Thankfully a YA with no love triangle
Disadvantages: There was a serious Hunger game vibe

The idea of the varying factions was unique and thought-provoking. It's obvious that in reality the complications with a similiar arrangement would be overwhelming, but it was entertaining when applied to this story. It would have been nice to receive som ... Read review

Disadvantages: None forme

Cujo is a 200 pound dog gone rabid, savaging a town in Maine.
Review of Cujo - Stephen King by Yellowapple

Advantages: Scary, good character development and of course Cujo
Disadvantages: Some of the parts with Roger and Vic dragging on about cereal.

Considering Stephen King can't even remember writing this book I personally think it is a masterpiece; 309 pages of horror bliss. The thought of a 200 pound dog is scary enough, without the thought of a Saint Bernard with rabies. The story is set in ... Read review
