Not Yet Legendary
Review of My Legendary Girlfriend - Mike Gayle by Soho_Black

Advantages: Very readable style
Disadvantages: Some moments that take you out of reality

Some of Mike Gayle’s writing has appealed to me purely because he seems to be a little more in touch with reality than a number of novelists in the chick-lit and bloke-lit genres. This means he writes characters I can relate to a lot more than many in th ... Read review

Making Hitler Funny... Kind Of...
Review of Look Who's Back - Timur Vermes by chrisandmark_is_here

A Killer Affair, Quite Literally
Review of 15th Affair - James Patterson by gothic_moon
