Review of Son of Rosemary - Ira Levin by sharper_fin

Advantages: It continues a classic
Disadvantages: It continues a classic... badly

In 1967 author Ira Levin wrote a fantastically chilling novel called 'Rosemary's Baby'. It's a timeless classic that was faithfully adapted as a film by Roman Polanski a year later. For me the thing that makes this book so unsettling is how it takes a no ... Read review

Jaws - different to the film in some good ways
Review of Jaws - Peter Benchley by StewwyB

Advantages: Very interesting to read about the characters in more depth than the film portrays them
Disadvantages: I'm still scared to go in the sea

The reason I’m scared to go in the sea... We’ve all seen the film, and am I on my own in saying that I’ve been terrified of going into the sea ever since? This was quite a spoiler for family days out as I grew up next door to Morecambe. Quite often, when ... Read review

David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks: it's all in the hands
Review of The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell by cr01

Advantages: Nicely written and a good plot
Disadvantages: Just a tad clumsy in places

The poor standard of English in many best-selling novels is something that never ceases to amaze me. I’m far from the best writer in the world myself, but dear reader I don’t inflict my errors into anything as comprehensive as a whole book; nor do I emplo ... Read review

Stop trying to kill Sookie
Review of From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris by dawnymarie

Advantages: Great pace, lots happening, neat plot and sound sub plots
Disadvantages: None

From dead to worse. Charlaine Harris The Southern vampire novels continue with this, book eight of nine, (with more a possibility) being From dead to worse. As the title suggests the content of this book is going to be getting a little dirty. Po ... Read review

'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' stays with you for good.
Review of The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry - Rachel Joyce by Flo098

Advantages: Easy to read, heart warming, a tear jerker.
Disadvantages: Not one to read if your looking for humor.

...Harold and his wife epitomize the fear of many - not mostly Harold himself, that he is living a bland and un ... Read review

A fast paced and thrilling love story
Review of Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks by RebeccaLovesBooks

Advantages: Thrilling, fast paced. Not a typical love story.
Disadvantages: None for me

'Katie slipped on her only pair of shoes, a pair of beat-up converse sneakers. The chest of drawers stood largely empty and there was almost no food in the kitchen, but as she stepped out of the house and into the sunshine and headed toward the store, she ... Read review

Old Fashioned Chills That Need Reader Imagination
Review of Rosemary's Baby - Ira Levin by sharper_fin

Advantages: Genuinely unsettling
Disadvantages: The reader needs to accept its age

Although most people will have heard of 'Rosemary's Baby' and many will have seen the unsettling 1968 film by Roman Polanski I'd guess that few will have read Ira Levin's original novel. Levin also wrote 'A Kiss Before Dying', 'Sliver', 'The Boys from Bra ... Read review

Review of Dead Sky - Tami Hoag by gothic_moon

Advantages: Gripping, depth of characters, interesting premise, fantastic writing style
Disadvantages: None for me

Having read and reviewed a few Hoag novels now I’m quite a fan of her stuff and so I was really looking forward to this one when I came across it in the library. Fortunately, it didn’t disappoint. With a sharp writing style and warm, interesting character ... Read review

Review of The Ottoman Motel - Christopher Currie by mi_wa

Advantages: Well written, interesting characters.
Disadvantages: Poorly edited, no conclusion.

The Ottoman Motel is a novel by Christopher Currie, published in 2011. It has received publicity - not for its irresistible or daring prose - but for the fact the author proposed in the acknowledgements section. "Darling, will you do me the honour o ... Read review

The Gold Bat - Bullying, Rugby & Dialect. Not a typical Wodehouse
Review of The Gold Bat - P.G. Wodehouse by ladyofflame

Advantages: Not the author's norm - more understandable plot but perhaps for special interest/fans only.
Disadvantages: Less understandable language, not the usual slapstick romp.

P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) is known for smirk worthy satire and slapstick, a prolific and often formulaic writer who was very able at poking fun of society’s elite and ‘betters’ usually by having them run around like headless chickens misunderstanding eac ... Read review

Review of Plugged - Eoin Colfer by sharper_fin

Advantages: A great new character
Disadvantages: None really

Irish novelist Eoin (pronounced 'Owen') Colfer (pronounced 'Colfer') is probably best known for writing the hugely successful 'Artemis Fowl' series of books. They're fantasy books aimed at young adults but read by many grown-ups in the same way that the ' ... Read review

Someone Doesn't Want Reacher Around
Review of Never Go Back - Lee Child by Andy.mack

Advantages: Another very addictive Jack Reacher story
Disadvantages: Perhaps a little too far fetched in places but still good

At the moment it seems that the passing of another week coincides with the completion of another book and this week it was another Jack Reacher adventure from Lee Child. This book takes place a few months after the book I reviewed a couple of weeks ago, a ... Read review
