We're all doomed - especially Woking.
Review of The War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells by misspurple7

Advantages: Readable, unique and chillingly believable. A classic and rightly so.
Disadvantages: A little gruesome in places and perhaps not the most twisting of plotlines

In the season of Christmas cheer, goodwill to all men and all that malarky, we decided our festive treat would be to witness the theatrical end of the world. Cheery. Jeff Wayne's musical telling of War of the Worlds was on at the O2 and never has the dest ... Read review

Millenial Hospitality III - a good bedtime read
Review of Millennial Hospitality III - Charles James Hall by Trish1996

Advantages: Unique experiences related in a factual manner.
Disadvantages: Somewhat repetitive and meandering in places

I came across these books while surfing Amazon and had to buy them all, 4 books to this series. I enjoy reading about unusual experiences and these were claimed to have some factual basis, although the first book was written as a fictional account. This ... Read review

A rather different read!
Review of Just One Damned Thing After Another - Jodi Taylor by lorriellah

Advantages: Interesting ideas, quite different
Disadvantages: difficult to understand some parts

I normally read books which are modern, general fiction, clck lit and the sorts. Recently I have started downloading books that have good reviews without really reading what they are about so this has helped broaden the books I read. Since doing this I've ... Read review

David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks: it's all in the hands
Review of The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell by cr01

Advantages: Nicely written and a good plot
Disadvantages: Just a tad clumsy in places

The poor standard of English in many best-selling novels is something that never ceases to amaze me. I’m far from the best writer in the world myself, but dear reader I don’t inflict my errors into anything as comprehensive as a whole book; nor do I emplo ... Read review

Stop trying to kill Sookie
Review of From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris by dawnymarie

Advantages: Great pace, lots happening, neat plot and sound sub plots
Disadvantages: None

From dead to worse. Charlaine Harris The Southern vampire novels continue with this, book eight of nine, (with more a possibility) being From dead to worse. As the title suggests the content of this book is going to be getting a little dirty. Po ... Read review

Darth Bane - Parth of Desrtuction is really quite a read
Review of Darth Bane - Path of Destruction - Drew Karpyshyn by Alex_T

Advantages: Is exciting whilst very descriptive of all the ways of the dark side.
Disadvantages: However it could be somewhat difficult to read for a non-Star Wars fan

This is a great novel that I would recommend to anyone who has any interest in the Old Republic era of the Star Wards extended universe. Being a huge fan of Knights of the Old Republic, this novel highlights all the force's mystical aspects and really plu ... 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

Review of Foundation And Empire - Isaac Asimov by bbicuk01

Advantages: The charachters
Disadvantages: Not really long enough, more story would have been even better

So how does the second part of the classic Asimov trilogy compare to the first? I enjoyed the first book so much I really wasn't sure about reading the second book and being disappointed - well I need not have worried. Foundation and Empire carries on fr ... Read review

Advantages: A very realistic, thought provoking and entertaining read.
Disadvantages: Some would be put off by the science fiction nature of the story.

An overview so far. Since the 'zombie plague' struck, the world has changed greatly. We may be familiar with images from space of our planet glowing with artificial light during the hours of darkness. After the plague all is dark except for one small lig ... Read review
