Writing by numbers

On the Run (The Gregory Series - Book 1) ()

3.0 Stars3.0 Stars3.0 Stars  by Anne

Running, hiding and loving

This is a book with an involved back story for the characters involving a shoot out with a drugs baron several years ago. Since then Neen (where do they get these names ?) has been on the run and Greg has been trying to find her. The past history of the characters and what happened to them is very involved and almost more interesting than the story which arises as Neen and Greg try to solve the mystery of w ...

White Lies and Custard Creams - A Romantic Comedy ()

3.0 Stars3.0 Stars3.0 Stars  by Anne

Just a bit too silly

Most modern romances are a little unrealistic, especially in the happy ending, but they are based more or less in the world we all inhabit, with a few exaggerations. Characters are a little more witty than in real life and their lives are considerably simplified for the sake of the story. I normally have no issues with this and quite enjoy the escape into a slightly unreal world. The problem with this no ...

Crime in the Community ()

2.0 Stars2.0 Stars  by Anne

Very mixed - some parts good and some awful

This novel shows, at times, some really witty and clever observational writing about small towns and community organisations. There was a section about filling in a local authority form to apply for community funding which can only have been written by someone who has performed this hellish task. There was also some insightful writing about mental health issues and the character of an older man, lonely and ...

Hot Tea (First book in The Tea Series) ()

1.0 Stars  by Anne

No idea where or at who this book is aimed

Cara comes from a large Irish American family living in Florida. She seems to be a feckless young woman seeking a career; we are never very sure what exactly she has done before the story begins. She begins by thinking that she may claim a reward for finding the murderer of a local woman by using the Internet although she cannot use computers. She enlists help, does nothing and then abandons this idea in fa ...

ASBO: A Novel of Extreme Terror ()

1.0 Stars  by Stephen Found

ASBOlutely dreadful.

I got this for my new Kindle touch because it was free and it had a 5 star rating. I wonder if I accidently downloaded the wrong book ? Think of every cliche you can with todays youth and council estate hysteria. Out of control, single parent family, alcohol and drug soaked mother unable to cope with her two sons, out of control psychotic eldest son who was repeatedly raped in prison, not so out out of con ...

All His Own Hair - A Romantic Comedy ()

4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars  by Anne

Achingly funny in places

Ferne has custody of Sparrow and wants to find a partner for herself who will be an appropriate father figure for him. She has a list (she has lists for everything) of requirements for the ideal man. Scattered throughout this book are the stories of her dates with various men whose habits and appearance cause her to add to her list (to have all his own hair is a minor requirement). This aspect of the book i ...

The Vampire Witch From Outer Space (Hackles) ()

1.0 Stars  by Stephen Found

The books tagline says it all.

I love a good comedy. Punchlines that you cannot see coming, long running subtle  jokes that resurface throughout the course of a book, gentle humour, witty comments from the books characters and well crafted, laugh out loud plots are some of the ingredients of excellent comedies. Unfortunately, this book has none of these. Well, to be fair it may have had them all by the boat load after page 5, but I d ...

To Samarkand with Baggie Bird ()

An intelligent and interesting travel tale

I have read a number of travel books about people following the ancient Silk Road through China, Eastern Europe and Asia - this book is as good as any of them. It is the story of the author's travels, as a 21 year old man and a self proclaimed "history geek". What he does particularly well, and what makes this book engaging and worth reading, is to interweave the history of the area with the modern cultur ...
