Sundome Volume 1: v. 1
Reviewed by silent killer
....as if the cover would lead you to believe otherwise. Yes, she's touching herself, and the cover doesn't let you down. In that respect. I'd say its borderline hentai. Except there's no blatant sex scenes. Actually there's no intercourse ... More

The Castle (Penguin Modern Classics)
Reviewed by Raven
I feel like I've been reading this book for 6 months when in actual fact it has been just under a month and after much struggling and determination I just can't keep reading it anymore and yet a part of me wants to keep reading it even thou... More

The Day of the Triffids (Penguin Modern Classics)
Reviewed by Dionysian Child
‘When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere’ I’m not one for normally remembering quotes but this one has stuck in my head. Used in the opening sen... More

Rock 'N' Roll Babes
Reviewed by Raven
Fantastic! I might be bias because I'm an Aussie who has hung around the places mentioned in the book and I loved the 90's but this book had me hooked by the first few pages. By page three I had already laughed at some of it and by page si... More

Breaking Dawn
Reviewed by Alyssa
Breaking Dawn is, while a satisfactory conclusion to the story of Bella and Edward, not particularly necessary to the series overall. At the end of Eclipse, we were left with a hope for a promising future with Bella and Edward, and whil... More

Suicide Girls
Reviewed by tartan_skirt
Dating from back in 2004 this book features a lot of the older and some now defunct SuicideGirls from the alternative erotica website of the same name. Only having come into proper contact with the concept in the last year I cannot comment ... More

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows
Reviewed by Elfflame
After six books, I wish I could say that this book made the journey worth it. But I don't think it does. Granted, it's still better than Goblet, but only marginally. When JK Rowling began this series, we all knew it had to end with a c... More

Reviewed by Uber
While I've grown up around computers since before I could remember I never really got into games until around 1999 and reading Dungeons and Dreamers makes me wish I had gotten into them sooner. The book basically starts with a small stor... More

The Day of the Triffids (Penguin Modern Classics)
Reviewed by The Antagonist
From an early age, my Dad would always talked about this book as if it were the Bible. His favourite book by far and always on his recommendation list whenever I'm in a bookstore or a library with him. After seeing the film and the TV se... More

The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials)
Reviewed by Raven
A far faster and lighter read then the first one in the trilogy (Northern Lights), I didn't realise why until I'd finished and compared it to the first one. It was far less detailed then the first but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Rat... More

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (Signet)
Reviewed by nataliegoes
It is the story of a young woman and her time in a mental institution in the early 60's. The writing is pretty simplistic, and although this has become a young adult book, the author's style is very old fashioned and unlikely to keep a you... More

Double Vision (Barker, Pat)
Reviewed by Abhi
Pat Barker is a very gifted writer. She writes about her characters like she has known them all her life and her portraits of them are intimate and complex. All her books have a smattering of damaged and/or twisted characters. She can creat... More

A Million Little Pieces

I admit I picked this up because I was curious about all the controversy/scandal it caused in the media when it came out. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about myself. At first I was liking the book and while there were a few things t... More

The Picture of Dorian Gray
Reviewed by The Antagonist
Considering the age of this book, I was quite mislead by the term 'cry/cried' throughout. A lesser educated person would have been ravaged with mind-boggling confusion. I have a knack for writing down favourite quotes from the books I re... More

The Picture of Dorian Gray
Reviewed by GemLil
This book is so good on so many levels. Not only is the novel a dark and interesting thriller, but Wilde weaves a moral code throughout which can’t help to change your outlook. A portrait of a young man, 'Dorian Gray', is painted by a... More

Roots (Dell Book)

To say this book is sad or tragic is an understatement, it deals with the history of slavery in the US and paints a horrific picture of what the experience was like for Kunta Kinte, starting with his life in a small African village and foll... More

Jacob's Ladder:

I really wanted to like this book, the cover compared it to Gone With the Wind and Cold Mountain, both of which I liked very much. But the characters were very bland, stereotypical and unlikable, the dialog was flat, and the interactions of... More
