The Journey Of The Spirit
Review of Lonesome Traveler - Jack Kerouac by justarube

Advantages: Beautiful writing.
Disadvantages: None.

'Lonesome Traveler' by Jack Kerouac is one of my favourite books. I first discovered the author at the age of sixteen after a celebrity I liked mentioned that they loved Kerouac's most famous novel 'On The Road'. Since my local bookstore did not have 'On ... Read review

Michaej J Sullivan: Hollow World not Shallow Word
Review of Hollow World - Michael J. Sullivan by cr01

Advantages: A good old fashioned science fiction world
Disadvantages: None for me

While I like fantasy fiction and read my full share, those stories of sword carrying heroes set in a world about 600 years behind ours can get a tad monotonous. How anyone can feed their brain with a 100% diet of the genre is beyond me. Thus when I heard ... Read review

Monstrous Regiment; Out of the closet and into the platoon
Review of Monstrous Regiment - Terry Pratchett by ConnemaraBlend

Advantages: Understandable and enjoyable to readers across range of reading skills and language proficiency.
Disadvantages: You usually do better with Pratchett's work if you understand irony and sarcasm.

I have to be honest and be up-front about the fact that I absolutely adore the wordsmithing skills of Sir Terry Pratchett. His vocabulary, his use of nuances, his ability to sketch an entire landscape with a simple sentence is simply superb. I heartily en ... Read review

A little sleep - enducing
Review of The Somnambulist - Essie Fox by misspurple7

Advantages: Some good characters. Well written and evocative.
Disadvantages: A little dull and takes an age to get going

The Somnambulist is a book I picked up without really thinking - a bit of an impulse read. I didn't even know what a somnambulist was! The Author The novel was published in 2012 and was written by English author, Essie Fox, most known for G ... Read review

Sounds like it appealed to you unconsciously when you bought it befitting the title :-). It sounds interesting and I like the coverart. I remember learning the use use of somnambulist from some hypnotists - to them it means someone of the mental disposition more likely to be hypnotized/influenced/impressionable and sadly to them 'a mark'. by ladyofflame

Way of Kings is the next big upcoming book for the fantasy genre.
Review of The Way of Kings - Brandon Sanderson by MojoKodo

Advantages: Great story, keeps on reading page after page
Disadvantages: Some parts can be dull and make you want to skip to the exciting moments.

For myself being a very selective and picky reader I have found that Brandon Sanderson has yet to disappoint. In Way of Kings he satisfies every fantasy readers craving. Not only does he recreate an entire world, he creates a number of different races a ... Read review

Great Read From The Best Nicci French Years
Review of Beneath The Skin - Nicci French by missrarr

Advantages: Without doubt an illustration of why French's earlier books were better.
Disadvantages: Starting to feel a little dated perhaps

Brace yourselves, people, for here be another review from "The Commuter Files" - in other words I got so fed up of being forced to travel in the company of others that I decided to lose myself in books again. There might be a few of these coming up in the ... Read review
