An Annual Affair With The Doctor!
Review of Doctor Who: Official Annual 2016 - Various Authors by Chippytarka

Advantages: Cheap price, great pictures, good easy to understand descriptions of character's and events
Disadvantages: Nothing really connected with the 2015 series

Itís amazing how a grumpy sleep deprived mummy can have something in common with a just as grumpy and moody young son. Despite his now fascination, much to my horror, of Disney comedies such as Jessie, Thundermans and Henry Danger ( what happened to Cbee ... Read review

It's weird how Dr Who is popular with people from all walks of life. On paper it sounds like a show that would only appeal to geeks. by Dentolux

Mostly Harmless: Another Great Novel from Douglas Adams
Review of Mostly Harmless - Douglas Adams by Elna642

Advantages: Funny, clever, unique, interesting, easy to read
Disadvantages: Not as good as the first book, no Zaphod or Marvin?

Mostly Harmless is the final book in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. It was originally mean to consist of only three books, but ended up far longer. In typical Hitchhiker fashion, the plot is a bit all over the place. Everyt ... Read review

Clever and strange, but not as good as the first book.
Review of So Long, and thanks for all the Fish - Douglas Adams by Elna642

Advantages: Clever, well-developed characters, funny, strange
Disadvantages: No real plot, very short, not as good as the rest of the series, no Zaphod?

This is the fourth book in Douglas Adam's infamous The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. As is always the case, the first couple of books are definitely the best, but I always have to read the whole series after I start! So in this book, Arthur De ... Read review

Another Clever, Weird Novel From Douglas Adams
Review of Life, the Universe and Everything - Douglas Adams by Elna642

Advantages: Clever, funny, weird and eccentric, unique writing style
Disadvantages: Not as good as the first books, easy to get lost at times

I loved the first two books in the Hitchhiker series, and had heard that the rest aren't quite as good. I'm afraid I have to agree on that with this book, though it isn't a bad book by any means. In this exciting novel from Douglas Adams, we find Arthur ... Read review

I actually read the film tie-in edition of this book, but practically ignored the photos and skipped the interviews and afterword, I'm afraid. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was originally published in 1979 but has remained a favourite of many peop ... Read review

Xenocide - Orson Scott Card
Review of Xenocide - Orson Scott Card by ThomasSedl33

Advantages: Terrific Storyline, mentally stimulating, lovable characters
Disadvantages: Will take a long time to read (and appreciate)

This book is the third novel in the Ender's game series and I recommend that you go read the first two books (Ender's Game and The Speaker for the Dead) if you haven't yet read them. The book follows the tail of an aging Andrew Wiggin on the planet of Lus ... Read review

This isn't a bad start. As a great fan of Orson Scott Card and the Ender series it may be worthwhile briefly exploring the background behind the book. After all this is bang in the middle of the series and coming to it unprepared may leave people rather baffled. A look at the characters, races and such like would be good as well. The ethical issues that Card addresses are vital but wouldn't exist without the Bugger War and the fear of humanity for instance. If you read around some of the high rated book reviews you'll see the kind of detail that I'm hinting at. It isn't an easy balance to strike; a mix between handing out information and not giving spoilers! by Secre
