A Deliberately Deadly Accident
Review of The Accident - Linwood Barclay by gothic_moon

Advantages: Interesting premise, easy enough to get stuck in to
Disadvantages: Characters could have been more developed, lacked some 'spark'

I love a good conspiracy theory, but some are better than others.
Review of The Titanic Secret - Jack Steel by cha97michelle

Advantages: really described the Titanic very well. Interesting main characters.
Disadvantages: A bit slow to get going, slightly unbelievable.

Most people are familiar with the story of the ship, The Titanic, which sank on its maiden voyage back in 1912 when it hit an iceberg causing massive loss of life. It has been the subject of other books and films, and like many large scale tragedies, ther ... Read review

That Thing in Cornwall
Review of Mistletoe and Murder - Carola Dunn by hiker

Advantages: Good clean puzzle fun
Disadvantages: None - within the context

VH - I've never read any of this author's work. by missrarr
One of the things I like about Child is that you can come into the Reacher series anywhere and still pick up as much as you need to know, likewise you can go back to older ones and still get caught in the suspense. by hiker

How do you overthrow a God?
Review of The Saviour - David Drake, Tony Daniel by Coloneljohn

Advantages: A fast paced, entertaining read.
Disadvantages: Nothing for me but some do not like science fiction

In giving the background information on this and the previous work I may inadvertently give certain spoilers, though I try not to give away the full narrative of the plot elements. The Land. Duisberg is a land rather like ancient Egypt. Imagin ... Read review

Icebound - not one of Koontz's best
Review of Icebound - Dean Koontz by StewwyB

Advantages: An early Koontz thriller which may be interesting for some fans
Disadvantages: Its awful compared to his other works

Introduction I’m on a self imposed quest to complete my Dean Koontz collection, but my “rules” insist I only source the books from either charity shops or car-boot sales. Here’s a review about another charity shop lucky find – Icebound. (The ch ... Read review

Well reviewed. I've largely given up on him as an author so I won't be joining your quest to read them all but good luck! I wonder how much you're losing him in royalties? He can probably afford to take the hit! by missrarr
Best of luck with your Koontz "bargain hunt" quest. As an author I find him hit an miss. Some of his books are awesome, but others could be better. by Dentolux

Review of Be Careful What You Wish For - Jeffrey Archer by laurahartleyy

Advantages: Exciting, suspenseful, unpredictable
Disadvantages: Too dense in places, takes a while to get started

Be Careful What You Wish For is the fourth book in The Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer (something that I didn't realise until I'd finished reading the book so silly me). It begins with a car crash involving two young men, but we are uncertain as to w ... Read review

A sex game goes wrong!
Review of Gerald's Game - Stephen King by CelticSoulSister

Advantages: An easy read, tense, convincing (mostly!), nerve-wracking
Disadvantages: Inclusion of something in the story that reduces its credibility levels

Published in 1992 (in the UK), Gerald’s Game is a Stephen King novel which is in a slightly different style to his norm, plus not quite so lengthy as most of his other works. Middle-aged couple Jessie and Gerald take themselves off for a break to a very ... Read review
