Kidnapped - Sixties Style
Review of Damaged Goods - June Hampson by hiker

Advantages: A decent romp of a sixties crime caper
Disadvantages: Some of the references are more 'forced' than they need be.

Coram Boy- a delightful example of good children's lit
Review of Coram Boy - Jamila Gavin by suemay123

Advantages: an intelligent and absorbing novel
Disadvantages: slightly predictable ending but can't really complain as its the ending I wanted!!

I had to read this as one of my set books on an Open University course and I'm so glad I did! For me this book is children's fiction at its best- the story is developed enough to be believable and at the same time it has the unmistakable feel of a childr ... Read review

Plots within plots.
Review of Fire with Fire - Charles E Gannon by Coloneljohn

Advantages: A very convoluted but entertaining story.
Disadvantages: Some will be put off by the science fiction nature of the story.

Charles E Gannon is a name I hadn't come across as a solo writer. I had found him involved in some collaboration though. So I was interested to see what he could make of a solo story. And this is the result, a real find from an author who is displaying co ... Read review
