A classic not read at school
Review of Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen by lottehusbands

Advantages: amazing read, classic
Disadvantages: -

To my dismay at school whilst you heard about the classic writers like Dickens and Shakespeare, the only female 'classic' author stated was Austen and unlike the others none of her works were ever read or studied by classes and there was no reason why. Pr ... Read review

In sickness and in health, will they remain together?
Review of A Walk to Remember - Nicholas Sparks by lottehusbands

Advantages: love story like no other of it's time
Disadvantages: too brief

It could be argued that a walk to remember is too brief and there is little detail therefore contained but that has to be denied, this book is one that will still grip you until the very end. Jamie Sullivan has a secret and one that she doesn't want to re ... Read review

It is not a common book
Review of The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks by lottehusbands

Advantages: amazing book, well written, love story classic
Disadvantages: too short, rerun of other love stories

The epitome of Nicholas Sparks' career happened early for it could be argued that there will never be a romance book written by him that could ever compete. Set in New Bern, North Carolina in the period of the second world war the lives of Noah Calhoun an ... Read review

Is it better than the Mortal Intruments?
Review of Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare by lottehusbands

Advantages: Good storyline, well written characters, adds insights into previous written works
Disadvantages: story is very context based, have to read the mortal instuments

The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare is the first installment in the Infernal Devices trilogy; embarking on a earlier, less modern and almost more grotesque version of the Shadowhunter world, this book is plagued with twists and turns that would make an ... Read review

Must admit, like the sound of this one, sounds like the film was based upon this but this seems a little duller, e! by DodoRabbit
Must admit, I haven't read this particular one but I have read a couple of Martina Cole books and, even as I was reading your review, I was thinking, "It's basically the same generic plot as any of her other books"! by KateHurst

Why it's a sin to Kill a Mockingbird
Review of To Kill A Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary edition - Harper Lee by brokenangelkisses

Advantages: strong moral messages conveyed in a realistic story with well-rounded characters
Disadvantages: readers really need to be aware of the context to fully appreciate some elements

Not all books repay rereading; this one does. Harder Lee's 1960 novel is considered a masterpiece of American literature - it won the Pulitzer Prize - and has been part of the school curriculum in America and the UK for many years. Disliking the public sc ... Read review
