We're all doomed - especially Woking.
Review of The War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells by misspurple7

Advantages: Readable, unique and chillingly believable. A classic and rightly so.
Disadvantages: A little gruesome in places and perhaps not the most twisting of plotlines

In the season of Christmas cheer, goodwill to all men and all that malarky, we decided our festive treat would be to witness the theatrical end of the world. Cheery. Jeff Wayne's musical telling of War of the Worlds was on at the O2 and never has the dest ... Read review

Review of My Best Friend and Other Enemies - Catherine Wilkins by Calla76

Advantages: Easy to read, nice pics, good story
Disadvantages: None really

Young Adult novels Now I realise I’m about a million years too old to be reading a book like this, but I do occasionally read Young Adult literature as I find it interesting – and have on occasion found myself reading some YA novels by accident! I ... Read review

Not Lamenting the release of CJ Sansom's 6th Shardlake Novel
Review of Lamentation - C J Sansom by cr01

Advantages: A rip roaring read
Disadvantages: A bit convenient in places

At last after a period of illness, author C J Sansom’s sixth Shardlake novel has hit the shelves in hardback form in time for Christmas. The book is part historical novel and part detective story and while I find the Shardlake series of books a little fla ... Read review

One family's legacy of the battlefields in France
Review of In Pale Battalions - Robert Goddard by JOHNV

Advantages: Interesting chronicle of family life...
Disadvantages: ...but too many tales within tales

...taken to Robert Goddard’s books in a big way over the last year or so, I thought it would seem particularly appropriate in the year of the centenary of World War I, to read one in which the war and its repercussions play a major part. This was one ... Read review

Not just a bad hair cut and a big mouth
Review of Driven to Distraction - Jeremy Clarkson by StewwyB

Advantages: I found him very entertaining
Disadvantages: Not everyone likes his opinions

Introduction Jeremy Clarkson is the Marmite Man – you’ll either want him every day on your toast, or you’ll prefer it if he was stuck in the back of the cupboard and forgotten about. I think he’s quite a clever and humorous wordsmith, but can ap ... Read review

Daughters of the Grail.
Review of Daughters of the Grail - Elizabeth Chadwick by Rowenya

Advantages: Good for those who like historical fiction or Elizabeth Chadwick.
Disadvantages: Quite a long slog at 435 pages, some may not find it interesting.

Plot Bridget grows up learning the gifts of her ancestor Mary Magdalene, much to the chagrin of the Catholic Church. The church threatens to destroy her for using these talents, leading her to run to Raoul de Montvallant. However, when the church's i ... Read review
