Very Good Omens
Review of Good Omens - Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman by Soho_Black

Advantages: The greatest fantasy-humour novel ever
Disadvantages: A couple of cringeworthy jokes and references showing their age

Many years ago, in an attempt to make me as big a Terry Pratchett fan as they were, a couple of friends lent me a copy of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s “Good Omens”. They called my sense of humour correctly and I thoroughly enjoyed the book to the ex ... Read review

Super gripping, and hard to put down!
Review of Murder House - James Patterson by MsTricia

Advantages: a real page turner, gripping, keeps you reading!
Disadvantages: some of the characters are a bit annoying!

I really enjoy reading a good book, and having a summer holiday a few weeks ago really allowed me to take advantage of this opportunity. Normally I find new books to read from posters on the tube, authors I am familiar with or family/friend recommendation ... Read review

Could be better, but also could be A LOT worse
Review of Get Even - Martina Cole by MsTricia

Advantages: easy to read, enjoyable and good story
Disadvantages: not groundbreaking compared to any of her other stories

I haven’t had the chance to chill out and read a good book in ages, so when I finally had some well deserved holiday time last month, I was super excited to be building up my Kindle collection with some good reads. A week of laying on the beach in the Dom ... Read review

Review of Dirty Game - Jessie Keane by mummytobe78

Advantages: Good start to a series. Doesnt drag out or get boring

Fantastic
Review of Lyonesse - Jack Vance by torr

Advantages: Boundless imagination, captivating style
Disadvantages: Reliance on magic (but not to any detriment to the overall effect)

Had he lived to see it, Jack Vance would today have celebrated his 100th birthday. Somehow this seems yet another reason to remember his work – on top of his boundless imagination, captivating style and prodigious output. He wrote at least 60 books, p ... Read review

Review of Home Truths - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: An ensemble cast makes for a more rounded story
Disadvantages: Just a little too weird sometimes

You would think that, after reading Freya North’s Three novels about the McCabe sisters; “Cat”, “Fen” and “Pip” and finding them ranging from awful to nearly awful, I would have given up. But upon discovering there was a fourth novel featuring the three ... Read review
