When Jimmy Buffet sang “Son of a son of a sailor”, he could have been singing about this particular Buck Reilly Adventure.

Book review: <i>Patriot Games</i> by Tom Clancy



Wow. Way to hit an all new low in reading! I recall the TV ads for the movie adaption of Patriot Games from way back when, and I remember the huge deal the segments made about how you can identify a woman by her breast size VIA SATELLITE. Oh my God. And now, having read the damn thing, I realise they made a big deal of it because it may have been the high point of the novel. And I mean that in a very relative sense. So there go a couple of hours of my life that I will NEVER GET BACK.

Book review: <i>Bangkok Tattoo</i> by John Burdett



Who could resist the title, really? And I'll be the first to admit, I selected this one based purely on the exciting bright yellow dust jacket and equally funfilled hot-pink stripe down the spine. We all have to judge a book by it's cover now and then. And this one certainly wasn't the unmittigated disaster other such judgements have been. I certainly wasn't unhappy to have selected it, and it was rollicking and funfilled and I really enjoyed to plot, but threre was something fishy about the actual writing techniques that I found difficult to reconcile with.
