A fascinating, believable tale.
Review of Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden by JosieLouise

Advantages: Historically interesting, good characters
Disadvantages: Not 'unputdownable'

For 50p from a charity shop, I couldn't resist snapping this one up, as it had been on my to-read list for literally years. I bought the 1997 edition, which has a striking cover consisting of a pair of red lips on white skin. It is 434 pages long, which ... Read review

Darth Bane - Parth of Desrtuction is really quite a read
Review of Darth Bane - Path of Destruction - Drew Karpyshyn by Alex_T

Advantages: Is exciting whilst very descriptive of all the ways of the dark side.

This is a great novel that I would recommend to anyone who has any interest in the Old Republic era of the Star Wards extended universe. Being a huge fan of Knights of the Old Republic, this novel highlights all the force's mystical aspects and really plu ... Read review
