The Beginnings Of A Great Crime Author
Review of Hundredth Man - J. A. Kerley by gothic_moon

Advantages: Confident writing style that's easy to engage with, the birth of some enigmatic characters
Disadvantages: Weaker premise that lacked some coherence, characters not as well defined

As a fan of Kerley, I was admittedly quite geekily excited when I came across this one recently. It wasn’t until after reading that I recalled where I had come across the title before; this is actually the author’s debut, his first novel that introduced ... Read review

When disability is under legal scrutiny
Review of House Rules - Jodi Picoult by digitalenvironmentalist

Advantages: An eye opener to the American justice system.

Pipped at the Post
Review of Pip - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: The main character's job
Disadvantages: Some irritating writing habits

Having written the stories of two of the three McCabe sisters, I guess there was an inevitability that Freya North would end up writing the story of the eldest, as that’s frequently how authors think. Having read “Cat” and “Fen”, the novels of the younge ... Read review

Not Entirely Of-Fen-Sive
Review of Fen - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: Slightly more emotional than the previous book
Disadvantages: Still some overused literary devices.

“How much do you know about art history?” This was not the response I was expecting when I complained to my wife that Freya North’s novel “Cat”, set in the world of the Tour de France, was annoying me by mixing fact and fiction unreliably and spoiling th ... Read review
