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

Bodies, Beheadings & Booker Prizes
Review of Bring up the Bodies - Hilary Mantel by spanielize

Advantages: Much more readable than Wolf Hall (no criticism of WH of course)
Disadvantages: It would be best to have read Wolf Hall first

"Bring Up the Bodies" is the sequel to English novelist Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall". Published in 2012, like "Wolf Hall" it was the Winner of the Man Booker Prize, and it also won Costa Book of the Year. It is the second in a trilogy chronicling the li ... Read review
