Not just another End of Empire tale
Review of Swimming to Ithaca - Simon Mawer by hiker

Advantages: A good story, well told that will lead you on to find out more about the facts behind the idea
Disadvantages: None

Watching his mother die, historian Thomas Denham thought he ought to find some significance in the event, but failed to feel anything. Sadness, maybe, or an appreciation of 'tragedy' - which it wasn't really since she was a fair old age, had lived a good ... Read review

Loved his The Glass Room, but found The Girl who Fell to Earth rather ordinary. Looks like I should read this one. Well reviewed, of course. Dx by torr

Quilt or Innocence - awful title - that should have been a clue!
Review of Quilt or Innocence - Elizabeth Craig by catsholiday

Advantages: I didn't pay for it
Disadvantages: Read the review!

Well I picked this up from a bookcrossing shelf and although the look of the book should have alerted me to its content. I thought it would be worth a read as it was billed as a detective novel set in Carolina and based around a quilting group. I like re ... Read review

Some useful advice, but most of the book didn't apply to me
Review of The Ethical Slut - Dossie Easton, Janet W. Hardy by Thehonesttruth

Advantages: Some great advice on jealousy, blame placing etc
Disadvantages: Dual perspective at times confusing

When you hear the word slut, what do you think of? If you're a lover of words and their origins, you might think back to the days when it meant a slattern, or perhaps to when it was an affectionately meant term for a young kitchen maid ("She is a cheerful ... Read review

I love a good conspiracy theory, but some are better than others.
Review of The Titanic Secret - Jack Steel by cha97michelle

Advantages: really described the Titanic very well. Interesting main characters.
Disadvantages: A bit slow to get going, slightly unbelievable.

Most people are familiar with the story of the ship, The Titanic, which sank on its maiden voyage back in 1912 when it hit an iceberg causing massive loss of life. It has been the subject of other books and films, and like many large scale tragedies, ther ... Read review

I was also brought up on the Be-Ro book... I've now got two copies Mam's original 1950s/early 60s edition and one I've inherited from his Mam of somewhat later vintage. Don't actually use either of them... but then, I don't bake. by hiker

A good basic book for those interested in crime and punishment.
Review of Amazing True Stories of Female Executions - Geoffery Abbot by Thehonesttruth

Advantages: Easy to read, interesting
Disadvantages: Soooo many bad puns it hurts

I'm a bit of a history nut - not just the kings and queens side of things, but social history too - how people lived, what they ate, and crime and punishment. I particularly like the gory, grisly side of things, so when one of the books in a biography epu ... Read review
