Book review: <i>Confessor</i> by Terry Goodkind


the cover of the book

If this was the final episode of a TV show, it would definitely be Friends - wrinkled characters, an apathetic audience departing mid-show, and plotting you'd have seen already even if you hadn't seen it already.

Book review: <i>On The Wealth Of Nations</i> by P. J. O'Rourke

Book review: <i>Keep No Secrets</i> by Julie Compton


the cover of the book

It took me a while to figure out why I got so into this book, and then I had an epiphany – it's like a super exciting and stretched out episode of Law and Order IN BOOK FORM. And I do love me a bit of L and O.

the cover of the book

Christmas In Absaroka County is just the thing to get you into the spirit of the season. A tiny taster of the Absaroka County; my only complaint would be that there just wasn't enough of it!

Book review: <i>Devil May Care</i> by Sebastian Faulks, 'writing as Ian Fleming'


the cover of the book

If this was a car, it would be a grey 1933 Bentley convertible with an Amherst-Villiers supercharger (installed against the advice of MI5 mechanics), NO machine guns and NO freaking ejector seats (though there could well be a bottle of single malt in the glove box).

the cover of the book

Letters in Cardboard Boxes is a very realistic, well developed character study, that deals with fairly full and complex family dynamic issues in a sensitive and undramatic way, and is really given extra dimension by virtue of it's web-based publication.
