Hitman and her....and him - Jonas Jonasson
Review of Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All - Jonas Jonasson by cr01

Advantages: Easy and amusing
Disadvantages: A bit fluffy and drifts off at the end

My beloved hasn’t quite weaned herself off that constant supply in Waterstones of “quirky humour”; and that type of “Richard and Judy” recommended book which became very popular a few years back. In fact, they are now so ubiquitous I’m not entirely sure t ... Read review

Why Gardens of The Moon is Essential in Science-Fiction
Review of Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen) - Steven Erikson by armor567

This Cat Doesn't Deserve the Cream
Review of Cat - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: North's passion for the event is evident
Disadvantages: Horribly written in a number of ways

Years ago, my then girlfriend, aware of my interest in the Tour de France, suggested I read Freya North's "Cat", purely on the basis that it was set against the backdrop of the event. Quite a few years later, when my bookshelves became our bookshelves, i ... Read review

Would you dare to take a chance?
Review of Chances - Jackie Collins by CoffeeQueen68

Disadvantages: None.

...I've yet to purchase. Chances is the first book in the series, and was the first of Jackie Collins books I read a few years ago. I've re-read it a few times since, and having ... Read review

Take me to Westeros!
Review of A Song of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones - George R. R. Martin by reicheru88

Advantages: Very imaginative, believable characters and settings, makes you want to turn the page
Disadvantages: Long so slow readers beware, contains things some readers might find disturbing

...- - I first heard about A Song of Ice and Fire because I saw the adverts for this brand new fantasy television series on Sky Atlantic called Game of Thrones. At the time, I was unable to get Sky Atlantic, but heard tha ... Read review

An Average Thriller from a Better-Than-Average Writer
Review of Whistleblower - Tess Gerritsen by sharper_fin

Advantages: Very easy to read, a page-turner
Disadvantages: It's all been done so many times before

The Introduction All writers are primarily voracious readers. That's certainly true for me. The only reason I wrote my first non-fiction book was that I'd read everything available on that particular subject and there was a gap to be filled. I didn' ... Read review

Unexpected ending and twist, just like expected from Sheldon
Review of Tell Me Your Dreams - Sidney Sheldon by buatdipake

Advantages: Precise and neat development, depth in the story, different genre from what author will usually wr
Disadvantages: a bit to lengthy from the story part

I am always a big fan of Sheldon novels, and "Tell Me Your Dreams" was one of his first novels that I read. For the regular readers of his novels, "Tell Me Your Dreams" draws another portion of him. It is far from the usual character Sheldon always potray ... Read review

Clay, boy. Not fit to receive so golden a sacrifice.
Review of The Warrior's Apprentice - Lois McMaster Bujold by Secre

Advantages: Plot, development, characters; a wonderful novel
Disadvantages: A pest to get hold of a hard copy now although not impossible

Miles Vorkosigan is the son of the famous Count Aral Vorkosigan, the Former Regent of Barrayar, Prime Minister of Barrayar, Admiral and Butcher of Komarr. It is quite a name, and quite a man for that matter, to live up to. Even more so when you have been ... Read review

Dangerously Closer (& Sexier!) Than You Think
Review of Closer Than You Think - Karen Rose by gothic_moon

Advantages: Good old detective work, vivid scenes, fluid writing style that's engaging to read
Disadvantages: Soft porn at times

I came across this in the library recently and, having read Rose novels before, was quite looking forward to it. It didn’t take long before I remembered her style (and love of love & romance amidst crime) so whilst it wasn’t a fantastic read, it was none ... Read review
