Hope is the Fruit of Darien
Review of Seeds of Earth - Michael Cobley by hiker

Advantages: A brilliant concept...
Disadvantages: ...that's a bit time-consuming to get into

It's a strange fact of the human psyche that while we send out our travellers in peace and exploration…we fear that whoever else is travelling out there, towards here, does so with malice aforethought. Cobley is no exception to this rule. In his future w ... Read review

Spindles End - Book Review
Review of Spindle's End - Robin McKinley by dragon747

Advantages: great read
Disadvantages: none

A retelling of Sleeping Beauty, ‘Spindles End’ is an odd book in many respects. Written in a voice that is all narrative it took me awhile to get into, however even though it was heavily descriptive with very little dialogue I thought it had the perfect f ... Read review

A Cursed Cruiser
Review of Dark Echo - F.G. Cottam by hiker

Advantages: A decent read
Disadvantages: Clichéd & predictable ending

In Rouen in September 1917, a French detachment are guarding the Cathedral. Guarding it and using it as a barracks and still doing their best to treat it as a house of God. After all, you cannot make a fortress out of a place designed to be welcoming. O ... Read review

Comforting, not boring
Review of Death of a Bore: Hamish Macbeth Murder Mystery No. 20 - M.C. Beaton by sharper_fin

Advantages: It's fun, honest, cosy crime at its best
Disadvantages: Some may find it a little light and unchallenging

They (whoever "they" are) say that authors should write about what they know. M.C. Beaton had already written twenty novels about the unambitious Highland policeman Hamish Macbeth before she penned this one in 2006 so it's safe to say that she knew her ch ... Read review

Unpleasant
Review of Moon - James Herbert by missrarr

Advantages: Probably would appeal to fans of the author
Disadvantages: Unpleasant imagery and characters that are impossible to warm to

When mum moved house to be in the same area as me last year, she started indulging in one of her hobbies – car booting – to see if she could find any bargains for her new home and one day I decided to toddle along in the hope of finding a cheap supply of ... Read review

Advantages: A decent plot and an easy entertaining read

the disapearing man trick
Review of Adam and Eve and Pinch Me - Ruth Rendell by mikeyc123

Advantages: well written
Disadvantages: ending more of a fizzle than a bang

It has been a while since I have read a Ruth Rendell novel and this one has been on my bookshelf for some years now so thought for a bit of a change I’d read it. Now I have often found her novels slightly heavy going but this one was a much lighter read a ... Read review

A Guilty Pleasure
Review of Murder at the Brightwell - Ashley Weaver by hiker

Advantages: Frivolous and fun
Disadvantages: None - unless you always take your crime writing seriously

It probably helps to be a fan of Agatha Christie. It probably helps to absolutely adore the sheer selfish indulgence and style of the 1930s. It probably helps to just accept the "rich" as being completely divorced from real life. It definitely helps if ... Read review

Review of Sovay - Celia Rees by dragon747

Advantages: nice read
Disadvantages: none

‘Sovay’ was a very enjoyable book but it wasn’t at all like I expected. From the books description I thought it would be all about a young girl turned outlaw, almost like a female robin hood, yet Celia Rees went a step further and made it so much more. Re ... Read review

A Devilishly Good Read
Review of Horns - Joe Hill by gothic_moon

Advantages: Light & engaging to read, interesting premise, entertaining style
Disadvantages: Ending a little rushed/unresolved

I was given this as a gift by an ex who said he ‘saw it and thought of you’ (perhaps it has something to do with his staff discount working in a bookstore too!). It has become far more popular of late thanks to it being turning in to a film, but I’d like ... Read review

Advantages: Magical Element. Interesting in parts.
Disadvantages: Slow, lacking spark. Not much happened.
