Human insects: Swarm v Individual intelligence.
Review of Hellstrom's Hive - Frank Herbert by Coloneljohn

Advantages: A very thought provoking and entertaining read.
Disadvantages: Many will be put off by the science fiction nature of the work

The publicity write up states:- "America is a police state, and it is about to be threatened by the most hellish enemy in the world: insects. Some secret papers were left in a public library that seemed to hint Dr Hellstrom and his farm were 'up to so ... Read review

Understanding what others believe in.
Review of What I Believe - Alan Brown by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Simple but not too simple.
Disadvantages: None.

In recent years, the mix of people from other faiths and religions (or none as the case may be!) has to my mind become more evident in this country with the increase in religion based wars and so on. And so people are getting to know little bits and piece ... Read review

Suffer the Children
Review of Water Music - Margie Orford by hiker

Advantages: A great example of the genre, with some political insight thrown in for free
Disadvantages: None

Cassie is out riding on a bridle path hardly used in the height of summer, totally deserted in winter. Her horse takes a tumble, and she goes with it, and stumbles into a tiny, plastic-wrapped child, maybe three-years old, and painfully thin, foot-soles l ... Read review

It's all a long way from Somerset
Review of Dying to Tell - Robert Goddard by JOHNV

Advantages: Gripping tale with several twists, especially at the end
Disadvantages: Verges on being a little far-fetched

‘Dying to Tell’, Robert Goddard’s fourteenth novel, was first published in 2001, and it is the fifth of his titles I have read. This follows a similar pattern (dare I say a similar formula?) in that the first-person narrator is a rather nondescript, like ... Read review

Bodies, Beheadings & Booker Prizes
Review of Bring up the Bodies - Hilary Mantel by spanielize

Advantages: Much more readable than Wolf Hall (no criticism of WH of course)
Disadvantages: It would be best to have read Wolf Hall first

"Bring Up the Bodies" is the sequel to English novelist Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall". Published in 2012, like "Wolf Hall" it was the Winner of the Man Booker Prize, and it also won Costa Book of the Year. It is the second in a trilogy chronicling the li ... Read review

So how does the second part of the classic Asimov trilogy compare to the first? I enjoyed the first book so much I really wasn't sure about reading the second book and being disappointed - well I need not have worried. Foundation and Empire carries on fr ... Read review

An overview so far. Since the 'zombie plague' struck, the world has changed greatly. We may be familiar with images from space of our planet glowing with artificial light during the hours of darkness. After the plague all is dark except for one small lig ... Read review
