Dirty, Deadly Cops?
Review of 14th Deadly Sin - James Patterson by gothic_moon

Advantages: Short & succinct chapters, intriguing premise, good degree of tension
Disadvantages: The ending!

On the cover we are told this is from ‘The world’s bestselling thriller writer’, and on the back that the novel is a ‘Sunday Times bestseller’. This falls within the crime thriller genre of the American ilk and I was looking forward to giving it a read, h ... Read review

Imagine a world with hardly any water...
Review of The Well - Catherine Chanter by beautybuff

Advantages: a bit different
Disadvantages: probably not for everyone

I can't even remember where I picked up this book, probably from a charity table but I do know that I though it sounded right down my alley, set in a new world where water is scarce and it's a bit of a bunfight to stay alive... Slow paced Whilst reading ... Read review

"Brady is Back" for the Mercedes Trilogy thrilling conclusion....
Review of End of Watch - Stephen King by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Advantages: Kings easy to read style, exciting and suspenseful

Agnes Grey-A 19th Century Classic telling about society and love.
Review of Agnes Grey - Anne Bronte by SamQad

Advantages: Fancy, Classic and Imaginative
Disadvantages: Tedious and Slow

The two novels that Ann Brontë wrote, 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall' and 'Agnes Grey', are the sophisticated depiction of the 19th century feminist approach with a simple yet decent plot-line and a 'happy ending' sort of culmination. Agnes Grey, a novel, ... Read review

Flashback and Letdown
Review of Flashback - Michael Palmer by Soho_Black

Advantages: Well written medical sections
Disadvantages: Not so well written other bits

When it comes to medical dramas on television, I tend to prefer the ones where the medicine is more interesting than the people, choosing "House M. D." over my wife's favourite, "Grey's Anatomy". When it comes to reading, I find I have similar preference ... 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
