Your never too old to learn new skills
Review of Life Skills - Katie Fforde by cha97michelle

Advantages: the author brings all the minor characters together so seamlessly
Disadvantages: nothing - a very endearing plot.

I've been working my way through a bag of novels that my sister passed on to me, so rather than my recent diet of crime fiction, I have been reading some lighter novels for a change. This novel is one I would firmly describe as chick lit. Its not your typ ... Read review

I think her stories must all be the same because this sounds very similar to one I have read by her. The familiarity is sometimes nice though. by dkm1981

Review of Nobody's Princess - Esther Friesner by dragon747

Welcome to Ciao :-) Sounds interesting and well written; good review too :-) and yes of course despite different physiology there are still shared thoughts and feelings. Bad part on the teachers if they didn't convey that in early schooling but good this book reinforces that (it bothers me though that in many books/fims/plays the usual 'outsider' has to have exceptional talent in someway for others to realize that and it sounds this book sticks to that formula). by ladyofflame

Mervyn Peake returns to Gormenghast in Boy in Darkness
