Review of 14th Deadly Sin - James Patterson by gothic_moon

~ So He Takes the Dog very little to do with dogs ~
Review of So He Takes the Dog - Jonathan Buckley by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Advantages: Interesting idea, cleverly executed, nice writing style
Disadvantages: Sometimes a need to work out where you are and who is who

So He Takes the Dog Jonathan Buckley Drawn to the book by the atmospheric black and white or indeed grey cover with its tantalising title, I picked up the book and turned it over to read the blurb. Straight away I was entranced by the promise of the bac ... Read review

Imagine a world with hardly any water...
Review of The Well - Catherine Chanter by beautybuff

Advantages: a bit different
Disadvantages: probably not for everyone

I can't even remember where I picked up this book, probably from a charity table but I do know that I though it sounded right down my alley, set in a new world where water is scarce and it's a bit of a bunfight to stay alive... Slow paced Whilst reading ... Read review

Review of Agnes Grey - Anne Bronte by SamQad

Advantages: Fancy, Classic and Imaginative
Disadvantages: Tedious and Slow

Flashback and Letdown
Review of Flashback - Michael Palmer by Soho_Black

Disadvantages: Not so well written other bits

Review of Broken Prey - John Sandford by Soho_Black

Advantages: Brilliantly written and plotted
Disadvantages: Quite expensive on Amazon

For every time a book picked up for nothing lets you down, there is another that makes you glad you took a chance on it. John Sandford’s “Broken Prey” falls squarely into this second category. Although I had never heard of the author previously, he won ... Read review
