Deadeye Dick isn't really for me.
Review of Deadeye Dick - Kurt Vonnegut by caelestespiritu

I think a bit more detail to explain loosely what this book is about would help. I'm with you however - I find Vonnegut a little hit and miss. by cr01

Effective vampire tale from Stephen King
Review of Salem's Lot - Stephen King by pmcds

Advantages: Chilling, clearly fiction but chilling!
Disadvantages: Occasional lengthy bits but this adds to the overall vibe

When I picked up this long awaited Stephen King book as I finally got round to it on my ever-expanding list of books to read, I pretty much assumed straight away that it was going to take me a while. This particular book comes in at just over 700 pages lo ... Read review

Back to Northanger
Review of Northanger Abbey - Val McDermid by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: A well written re-take of a classic novel
Disadvantages: May not appeal die McDermid's taregt audience

I have always been a big Jane Austen fan and was quite excited to hear of the Austen Project where 21st century authors re-work Austen’s classic novels into a modern day setting. Having read some Austen fan-fiction in the past I knew that these endeavour ... Read review

I quite like the sound of this - it does seem quite a tricky thing to do, to modernise classics, but when done properly it can be a treat! by Mildew82

A lovely Romance story laced with heartbreak and tragedy
Review of Best Kind of Broken - Chelsea Fine by RebeccaLovesBooks

Advantages: Interesting plot. Tension.
Disadvantages: A little slow at the start, but it soon got moving.

'Denial is thick and sweet, and for the past year it filled up my lungs until they threatened to burst. But truth...truth is clean and pure. And yes, it hurts when I inhale it, it hurts to cleanse out the sweet smoke, but breathing it out is like new life ... Read review

The most pleasant surprise
Review of Battle Royale - Koushun Takami by VisHelg

Advantages: Constant action, characters you really care about
Disadvantages: Most of the characters you fall in love with will die

If you're not a particular fan of too much blood and violant scenes - I fall into this category myself- the plot might seem rather repelling so when my brother lent me his copy and tried to talk me into reading it I wasn't really keen on it. I'm so glad I ... Read review

A good start but lacking much in the way of detail I'm afraid. What is this book all about? Who are the main characters? A bit of insight into the plot (without giving too much away) and the main characters would make your review much more helpful. Please let me know if you edit and update this and I'll be happy to take another look for you. by Bollinger28

Excellent advice for training the perfect recall
Review of Total Recall - Pippa Mattinson by Marge3781

Advantages: Clear, useful information on training the recall.
Disadvantages: Not very exciting, some editing errors.

'Total Recall' is 248 pages devoted to one topic only - teaching your dog to come when called. This might sound a little boring, and to be perfectly honest, it was at times, but I still feel this is one of the best books I have come across on training. Tr ... Read review
