The Foundation of Sci-Fi?
Review of Foundation - Isaac Asimov by bbicuk01

Advantages: Great characters and an interesting plot
Disadvantages: Poor proofreading from publishers Voyager

As a sci-fi fan for the best part of my reading life I had never plucked up the courage to read anything by Isaac Asimov. As a youth I had always thought that the books would be dull and uninteresting and hard to read. This may well have been true when I ... Read review

Review of Jar City - Arnaldur Indridason by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Original story
Disadvantages: Not much character development, not a gripping plot

Jar City by Arnaldur Indridason is the first novel in his Reykjavik Murder Mystery series. I had read the fourth (The Draining Lake ) previously so I don't think it necessary to read them in order. Our protagonist is a chap called Erlendur (all names ar ... Read review

Dracula packs a bite every bit as scary as its bark!
Review of Dracula - Bram Stoker by richieyorke

Advantages: Fantastically compelling, genuinely scary, more realistic than most
Disadvantages: Perhaps slightly dated in its sentimentality, but this is a very minor point

...There is a reason that Dracula is such a household and well-known name; Bram Stoker delivers a fantastic read which is both spell-binding and terrifying at the same time. As a graduat ... Read review

The whole Easter Egg thing has passed me by .... by dee7778
I think there is a tendency here to reserve E's for the longer reviews, but this says absolutely everything I need to know - with no padding or worse - going into too much detail on a book and spoiling anything - so an E from me. by Marge3781

(Don't) Do the math!
Review of The Indian Clerk - David Leavitt by hiker

Advantages: An intriguing mix of fact and fiction - to be fully treated as fiction
Disadvantages: The maths could get in the way if you let it.

If you watch the American detective series Numbers on television and not only enjoy it, but actually follow the maths – then you will love this book. If, like most of us, you enjoy it because you skip over the maths, then you will eventually enjoy this bo ... Read review

Excellently reviewed as always. by Dentolux
A most insightful review of a good and topical (review) subject here. I guess we Westerners will never truly appreciate just how different society is there, unless we do as the author has in this case - which few of us have the time, or incination, to do. R. by RICHADA
