I bet you didn't know this existed. I'm trying to forget it does
Review of Son of Rosemary - Ira Levin by sharper_fin

Advantages: It continues a classic
Disadvantages: It continues a classic... badly

In 1967 author Ira Levin wrote a fantastically chilling novel called 'Rosemary's Baby'. It's a timeless classic that was faithfully adapted as a film by Roman Polanski a year later. For me the thing that makes this book so unsettling is how it takes a no ... Read review

David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks: it's all in the hands
Review of The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell by cr01

Advantages: Nicely written and a good plot
Disadvantages: Just a tad clumsy in places

The poor standard of English in many best-selling novels is something that never ceases to amaze me. I’m far from the best writer in the world myself, but dear reader I don’t inflict my errors into anything as comprehensive as a whole book; nor do I emplo ... Read review

Stop trying to kill Sookie
Review of From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris by dawnymarie

Advantages: Great pace, lots happening, neat plot and sound sub plots
Disadvantages: None

From dead to worse. Charlaine Harris The Southern vampire novels continue with this, book eight of nine, (with more a possibility) being From dead to worse. As the title suggests the content of this book is going to be getting a little dirty. Po ... Read review

Old Fashioned Chills That Need Reader Imagination
Review of Rosemary's Baby - Ira Levin by sharper_fin

Advantages: Genuinely unsettling
Disadvantages: The reader needs to accept its age

Although most people will have heard of 'Rosemary's Baby' and many will have seen the unsettling 1968 film by Roman Polanski I'd guess that few will have read Ira Levin's original novel. Levin also wrote 'A Kiss Before Dying', 'Sliver', 'The Boys from Bra ... Read review

A Guilty Pleasure To Read
Review of Dead Sky - Tami Hoag by gothic_moon

Advantages: Gripping, depth of characters, interesting premise, fantastic writing style
Disadvantages: None for me

Having read and reviewed a few Hoag novels now I’m quite a fan of her stuff and so I was really looking forward to this one when I came across it in the library. Fortunately, it didn’t disappoint. With a sharp writing style and warm, interesting character ... Read review

Boondock Empire
Review of The Ottoman Motel - Christopher Currie by mi_wa

Advantages: Well written, interesting characters.
Disadvantages: Poorly edited, no conclusion.

The Ottoman Motel is a novel by Christopher Currie, published in 2011. It has received publicity - not for its irresistible or daring prose - but for the fact the author proposed in the acknowledgements section. "Darling, will you do me the honour o ... Read review

The Gold Bat - Bullying, Rugby & Dialect. Not a typical Wodehouse
Review of The Gold Bat - P.G. Wodehouse by ladyofflame

Advantages: Not the author's norm - more understandable plot but perhaps for special interest/fans only.
Disadvantages: Less understandable language, not the usual slapstick romp.

P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) is known for smirk worthy satire and slapstick, a prolific and often formulaic writer who was very able at poking fun of society’s elite and ‘betters’ usually by having them run around like headless chickens misunderstanding eac ... Read review

Someone Doesn't Want Reacher Around
Review of Never Go Back - Lee Child by Andy.mack

Advantages: Another very addictive Jack Reacher story
Disadvantages: Perhaps a little too far fetched in places but still good

At the moment it seems that the passing of another week coincides with the completion of another book and this week it was another Jack Reacher adventure from Lee Child. This book takes place a few months after the book I reviewed a couple of weeks ago, a ... Read review

Marion Chesney has been writing her Hamish Macbeth crime series of books under her pen name of M.C. Beaton since 1985. This book, ‘Death of a Gentle Lady’, was first published in 2008 and features Hamish MacBeath, the lazy policeman who patrols the sleep ... Read review

Not quite a spanker of a book
Review of Bared to You - Sylvia Day by StewwyB

Advantages: Surprisingly, I was very interested in the two main characters' relationship
Disadvantages: More of a romance story than a steamy erotic romper

Introduction Why I read this book, I have no idea. I've never seen an episode of Sex and the City, the thought of having floating candles in a bath sounds like a health and safety disaster in waiting and 50 Shades of Grey is surely something from the p ... Read review

Treachery in Death by J.D. Robb
Review of Treachery In Death - J. D. Robb by adamblack93

Advantages: Great read, hard to put down, very well written, engaging characters
Disadvantages: You'll have trouble getting anything else done.

Over the last few years I've become rather lax when it comes to reading. I always enjoyed reading when I was younger but for some reason I'd say you could count the number of books I've read since leaving school on both hands. Excluding academic books, of ... Read review
