"This is raw. A boy: fat, unhappy, bored, witnesses events from his sanctuary; the top of a motorway bridge. It's rare that books are this frank but the ending makes you bang your head against a wall."
"I originally picked up this book because the cover looked a bit like cheese wax. It's set in Barcelona. There's a big maze made of books. As in Funke's 'inkheart ' the characters literaly come to life"
"I know. It's a book about deer. Animal books put me off. Thank god it's about clan and Scotland and prophecy, is so beautifully written you almost wish you were a deer. Bambi lovers eat your heart out"
"Due to the Manga revolution Japanese culture has been a popular subject. Having seen the film first I was slightly sceptical as to whether the novel could compete, the book fills in all the gaps. Read"
"This book is the first in a trilogy. It's German and feels very dark but easy to read.Although intended as a children's novel it's plotline (charaters emerging from books into real life) is universal"
"I'm ending with my favourite. A friend convinced me I would enjoy these books so much I should buy the first 3 immediately. FF, dragons honour magic love war insanity rivals. Do we need more? My No.1."
