Tomorrow, When the War Began
Reviewed by Villiana
I ran into this book completely by chance while searching for some interesting dystopian items for young people. I said "why not?" and added a whole series on the waiting list to read in the future, but absolutely never heard of this book, ... More

The Shadow Of The Wind

“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.” Finally! I don’t remember from when I wanted to read this book and the moment finally come. Until now, I had the pleasure to read "Mist Trilogy" by the sam... More

Will certainly be spoilers :) “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.” I'm going back to the classics. My first contact with this book took place about 15 years ago, when this item ... More

The next part of this fascinating and incredibly instructive adventure behind me. Although I don't know if you can call it an adventure... rather a struggle for survival in the cruel world with not losing yourself in this whole situation. ... More

The Time Machine
Reviewed by Villiana
My first review :P Warning, plenty of spoilers :) I didn't know before this story in the original, so I have to admit that the Time Machine plowed my brain, like a herd of hurtling buffaloes. I still don't know exactly what to write,... More

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

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

This is a book that most unfortunately I have only read in adulthood. It is simply written with beautiful simplicity packed with original and creative characters and storylines which have affected every one of us. It speaks directly to chi... 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
