Great Read From The Best Nicci French Years
Review of Beneath The Skin - Nicci French by missrarr

Advantages: Without doubt an illustration of why French's earlier books were better.
Disadvantages: Starting to feel a little dated perhaps

Brace yourselves, people, for here be another review from "The Commuter Files" - in other words I got so fed up of being forced to travel in the company of others that I decided to lose myself in books again. There might be a few of these coming up in the ... Read review

Morrison's Masterpiece?
Review of A Child of the Jago - Peter Miles, Arthur Morrison by inkyscribbles

Advantages: interesting, engaging, relentless, lack of closure
Disadvantages: difficult to read at points, not the best reading experience
