Very interesting to read your criticisms - it's not a good sign if a book drags in the middle. Also it seems a glossary of Victorian terminology might have been helpful to the reader. by mikemelmak

Don't Be Afraid to Give This a Go
Review of Afraid - Mandasue Heller by jo-1976

Advantages: Fast paced, lots of twists and turns
Disadvantages: Lots of factual inaccuracies

I picked this book up on the basis of a review on Ciao when the themes of the book struck my as being interesting and topical. 'Afraid' is the first book that I've ever read by the author Mandasue Heller but she appears to be a fairly prolific writer of c ... Read review

It's rare to find a love story as gently and finely developed as
Review of The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion by laurahartleyy

Advantages: Heartwarming, funny, unpredictable
Disadvantages: None

Don is a little different. He has Asperger's syndrome (though he himself fails to recognise this) and so can be rather blunt and socially awkward. Often missing basic human signals Don frequently misinterprets situations and thus finds himself with very f ... Read review

Review of Troy: Fall Of Kings (Troy) - David Gemmell by hiker

Advantages: A breathtaking re-telling that will make you want to read more
Disadvantages: It can be a bit confusing if you don't know the basics of the source myth

This, the third chapter in Gemmell's epic re-telling of the Trojan wars, finds the heroes poised for death or glory. Once more I come to a tale part told, so you must forgive the gaps in my knowledge which undoubtedly reduced my enjoyment of this book. ... Read review

The Reverberation of Choices
Review of Life After Life - Kate Atkinson by Secre

Advantages: Interesting, well written, powerful and dark
Disadvantages: Loose ends and threads, disconcerting, no real closure

Life After Life was a book I was handed by my foster mother with the dubious recommendation of; “Having finished it I’m still not certain if I liked it, but it was certainly interesting.” Not quite the usual recommendation when someone hands you a book ... Read review

Review of Oh Dear Silvia - French, Dawn by Nymphypig

Advantages: Easy enjoyable read with character I could identify with

Disadvantages: None

Hopefully by now you'll have got the basics of the Discworld set-up… so just a quick recap for those who've been asleep for the last 25 years: Somewhere, or when, in a probably different dimension there is the Disc. A round flat planet that spins (in a ... Read review

An excellent read - thoroughly gripping and enjoyable
Review of The Lie - C. L. Taylor by MsTricia

Advantages: gripping, interesting, great storyline and pace, lots of mystery
Disadvantages: none but you have to be patient until the end!

I love to read. Sadly as a mum of a demanding 6 year old who works full time it is not something I get to do too often and so far this year I’ve probably only read one book which is very depressing! Wanting to kick start my reading again, and to help me r ... Read review
