Dare You Visit The Murder House?
Review of Murder House - James Patterson by gothic_moon

Advantages: Tension, intriguing premise, writing flows well, engaging, believable characters
Disadvantages: A little predictable in parts, would have liked a little more depth to some characters

...curious and eager to give Murder House a go. Perhaps it was the cover, perhaps it was simply the intriguing and somewhat cliche ... Read review

Don't Prey For Me
Review of Broken Prey - John Sandford by Soho_Black

Advantages: Brilliantly written and plotted
Disadvantages: Quite expensive on Amazon

For every time a book picked up for nothing lets you down, there is another that makes you glad you took a chance on it. John Sandford’s “Broken Prey” falls squarely into this second category. Although I had never heard of the author previously, he won ... Read review

The Permanent Way - and the need for change
Review of Raising Steam - Terry Pratchett by hiker

Advantages: Fun and frivolous, but with a point needing to be re-heard
Disadvantages: None

Dick Simnel was ten years old, when back at the family smithy in Sheepridge, his father simply disappeared in a cloud of furnace parts and flying metal, all enveloped in a pink steam. It's the kind of thing that might turn a child to more sedate, safe ... Read review

A Dead Ringer I Don't Love
Review of Dead Ringer - Lisa Scottoline by Soho_Black

Advantages: A fast paced read
Disadvantages: Feels like several missed opportunities all at once

Picking up books from random places can work to your advantage sometimes, but not always. For one thing, it can get you a book for a very low price, or even free and can introduce you to a new author you may not have tried otherwise. On the other hand, ... Read review

A Whodunit Of A Different Kind
Review of Afterwards - Rosamund Lupton by gothic_moon

Advantages: Beautifully written with a poetic yet down to earth style, creative premise, gripping & emotive
Disadvantages: None for me

I came across this recently and got tempted by the cover, and the fact that I’d heard of Lupton but couldn’t for the life of me remember if I’d read any of her other work (I hadn’t). On the cover we are told this is from ‘the Sunday Times Bestselling a ... Read review

Easy Reading...
Review of Sign Of The Cross - Chris Kuzneski by chrisandmark_is_here

Advantages: Good plot, recognisable main characters, fast paced
Disadvantages: Too much forced humour, far too many lucky coincidences to move the story along

~x~x~x~ Oh Dan Brown, what have you started? ~x~x~x~ Like everyone else I read Dan Brown's offerings to the world of literature when they were being hyped up a few years ago, I actually thought they were brilliant (amateurish writing aside) and s ... Read review

So bad it deserves Zero stars...
Review of Depraved Heart - Patricia Cornwell by MsTricia

Advantages: boring, long, no development, too descriptive and little action
Disadvantages: none

I told myself I wasn't going to review this book because it was so bad it wasn't worth it. But sometimes I probably should review books when they aren't a good read, otherwise people won't know NOT to read it! Negative book reviews are just as useful as p ... Read review

Review of The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins by frankiecesca

Advantages: Interesting plot and well thought out characters and it all came together in the end
Disadvantages: Didn't enjoy the flow of the book and seemed too hyped up

I had this book on my unread shelf from when it first came out last year as I saw a few reviews on it and thought it sounded good. I then just kept picking others to read over it until my friend mentioned how good it was and said I should read it next. I ... Read review

How the past & present are connected.
Review of The Haunting - Alan Titchmarsh by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: A sweet, lovely and calming story.
Disadvantages: None.

The Angels were all singing out of tune, And hoarse with having little else to do, Excepting to wind up the sun and moon, Or curb a young runaway star or two. Lord Byron, 'The Vision of Judgement', 1833 I've never read any of Alan Titchmarsh's b ... Read review
