Review – The Last Wild by Piers Torday

The animals are the stars of The Last Wild. You almost don’t notice the lack of humans in this book as the animals are marvellous characters with amusing personalities. Plus when we do get to meet humans, they’re not all that nice.

Review – Becoming by Michelle Obama

Becoming surprised me with the scope it covered and the detail that it went into. It was a lovely window into the life of a public figure that I initally thought that I didn’t need to know more about. Thankfully I was proved wrong. Michelle Obama writes well with warmth, humour and purpose. The honesty and clarity was refreshing. It’s a great read, expertly read by the author which gave an added depth. Recommended.

Review – Beezer by Brandon T. Snider

We all liked the one liners, the demon possessed pet and Beelzebub’s attitude. Do read this short, snappy tale about finding acceptance and a place to call home.

Naturally, we are suckers for stories about Good versus Evil, especially well written ones.

Review – Nothing Important Happened Today by Will Carver

As the novel is interspersed with vignettes on cults, their leaders, serial killers and victims, Will Carver has thoughtfully given us (the reader) enough context and examples to assist us in the hunt for the leader and other members of the group, so we are not reliant on the police who appear incapable of solving this in a prompt and satisfactory manner.

Book Review – The Porpoise by Mark Haddon

I’m still at a loss for words to sum up this book which is a rich, lyrical retelling of two Greek myths. I am glad that I read it, but it was a difficult read on a number of levels. It was enthralling and harrowing in equal measure. Not for the faint hearted.

Book Review – Imposter by LJ Ross

Imposter is not a cosy read, but was perfect for keeping my attention focused on a drab Sunday afternoon with the twists and turns of finding out who was killing women in a small town in County Mayo and why. The sense of unease and dread was palpable.
