Hot Property
Review of Hot Property - Tasha Harrison by euphie

Advantages: Great story, ideal beach read
Disadvantages: Slow to start

I quite often download free ebooks on Amazon’s Kindle page as I have managed to get some really great reads that way and it introduces me to some authors and genres that I wouldn’t normally have considered. Not spending any money also means that if the bo ... Read review

Gripping plot mixed with beautiful writing
Review of Of Love and Other Wars - Sophie Hardach by laurahartleyy

Advantages: Beautiful writing, gripping plot, plot twists
Disadvantages: Takes a while to get into

Of Love and Other Wars attracted me because of its vibrant cover and the high praise from critics plastered all over the book jacket. I have to admit that it wasn't what I was expecting really as the quoted passage on the back of the book cover does not w ... Read review

More Magic In London
Review of Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch by missrarr

Advantages: Funny, original, keeping up the same quality of the first book in the series, readable style.
Disadvantages: Not for you if you don't like the whole magicians-on-the-police-force idea

I first stumbled across novellist Ben Aaronovitc when I took a chance on a book that simply caught my eye on display on a shelf in my local library. That book was Rivers Of London, and I was straight away hooked on the combination of pace, plot and humour ... Read review

Life of Biff
Review of Lamb - Christopher Moore by hiker

Advantages: Irreverent and hilarious
Disadvantages: Don't read it if your religion is likely to be offended

Sometime in the early years of the 21st century the Angel Raziel is sent back dirtside. It's a bit soon, he feels, after his last trip 2000 years ago, but then he did muck that one up slightly so maybe it's punishment duty. Either way, orders are orders.. ... Read review

Switched - Book Review
Review of Switched - Amanda Hocking by dragon747

Advantages: nice read
Disadvantages: none

I had heard many good things about Amanda Hocking and her books circling around the blogosphere, so I admit I picked up ‘Switched’ with expectation of great things. It didn’t disappoint. After the prologue I felt that the story itself got off to slow sta ... Read review

Dark Days
Review of A Darker Domain - Val McDermid by hiker

Advantages: Good gripping stuff
Disadvantages: Slightly unsubtle denouement

The Miners' Strike is a phrase a bit like The War. It is apparently non-specific but to the British it invokes no misconceptions. We know precisely what is meant. For all the wars there were before and since, when anyone speaks about the war or ev ... Read review

Human insects: Swarm v Individual intelligence.
Review of Hellstrom's Hive - Frank Herbert by Coloneljohn

Advantages: A very thought provoking and entertaining read.
Disadvantages: Many will be put off by the science fiction nature of the work

The publicity write up states:- "America is a police state, and it is about to be threatened by the most hellish enemy in the world: insects. Some secret papers were left in a public library that seemed to hint Dr Hellstrom and his farm were 'up to so ... Read review

Suffer the Children
Review of Water Music - Margie Orford by hiker

Advantages: A great example of the genre, with some political insight thrown in for free
Disadvantages: None

Cassie is out riding on a bridle path hardly used in the height of summer, totally deserted in winter. Her horse takes a tumble, and she goes with it, and stumbles into a tiny, plastic-wrapped child, maybe three-years old, and painfully thin, foot-soles l ... Read review

It's all a long way from Somerset
Review of Dying to Tell - Robert Goddard by JOHNV

Advantages: Gripping tale with several twists, especially at the end
Disadvantages: Verges on being a little far-fetched

‘Dying to Tell’, Robert Goddard’s fourteenth novel, was first published in 2001, and it is the fifth of his titles I have read. This follows a similar pattern (dare I say a similar formula?) in that the first-person narrator is a rather nondescript, like ... Read review
