Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1) (The Inheritance Cycl...
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

The Left Hand of Darkness
Reviewed by Abhi
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

Peter Pan
Reviewed by Dionysian Child
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

Apart from there being no clear definition between subject changes making it not flow through properly this was a great story. Ruth Ritchie is an entertaining writer who has you laughing, crying and being angry and disgusted at others behav... More

Lady Chatterley's Lover
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

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
Reviewed by Isis
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

An awe-inspiring piece of literature, Orwell not only presents us with a brutally depressing dystopia, but a flawlessly crafted one as well. He manages to be so descriptive about so little, Im such a way that you really feel for what charac... More

Where's Wally Now?

This, along with the other books in the series, is one of my favourite books from my childhood. And as far as activity books go, I remember getting a LOT out of this book in terms of entertainment value and time consumed. It may be extremel... More

Altered Carbon

Deception Point
Reviewed by Heracles
It seems to me that for reasons beyond his control Dan Brown has been made a bit of a joke of in recent years. The Da Vinci code was a genuinely good book that got taken to pieces by documentary after documentary when it's purpose was only ... More

Sabor de Loucura

Vale do lirismo , dso lúdico, da ironia, da paixão, das fábulas e narrativas. Seus versos em labirinto são caminhos do inesperado, da extravagância. Há uma insistencia no lirismo não angelical, mas aceso pela impaciência do desejo... More

The Complete Persepolis

I bought this book on a whim. I knew nothing about it other than that it had recently been made into an animated film. Had I flicked through the book before getting it to the counter (something I usually do) I wouldn't have bought it. Why? ... More
