The Holy Bible: King James Version

I have to say I was a little disappointed by The Bible. I've seen many reviewers call it 'life changing' and promise that it contains profound wisdom and divine knowledge, as well as it being 'the best selling book of all time', but I would... More

''In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make the claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of exper... More

Reviewed by AJWyrm
I only read this book because I wanted to play the GBA game based on it. (Well, based on the movie, which I haven't seen.) I fully expected it to be terrible, but wow, it's sheer awfulness just blew me away. I don't think there is one or... More

Altered Carbon (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
Reviewed by The Flagship
Proving once again that judging a book by its cover almost always pays off, I picked up Altered Carbon for no other reason than the intriguing Da Vinci-esque anatomical sketch adorning the front page. Interestingly, I’ve never seen this v... More

From the summary of the book: "On the planet Winter, there is no gender. The Gethenians can become male of female during each mating cycle, and that is something other cultures find incomprehensible. The Ekumen of Known Worlds has sent ... More

Lady Chatterley's Lover (Bantam Classics)
Reviewed by Dionysian Child
I think that taking into consideration the fact that D.H Lawrence wanted to call this book Tenderness bodes well for what sentiments he originally intended top portray with this novel. The book focuses on a young, strong minded and educa... More

Twilight (Twilight Saga, Book 1)

This is the most teenager overrated crap I've ever read. And I am saying this as a 17 year old girl that usually likes best sellers. The cover says it is one of the best suspense novel ever written. Readers say it's adventure. Honestly, ... More

A Lifetime of Secrets: A PostSecret Book

This was the first Post Secret book I've got and I'm pretty sad about it, because I am so sure it is also the best one. By reading this one first, I'm so sure no other PS book will ever surprise me like this one. Even tough I've been readi... More
