4.0 out of 5 stars More colourful even than my own job history!, 8 Jan. 2014

This review is from: The P45 Diaries (Kindle Edition)
Ben Hatch captures the young man's quest for a Good Job, with added poignancy, a touch of slapstick and loads of insightful humour.
I can't describe it. Buy it, read it and enjoy it for yourself!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely holiday read, 14 Sept. 2013

This review is from: A Cat Called Hope (Kindle Edition)
"A Cat Called Hope" is a beautifully-written, poignant tale. Oliver Clarke writes from the cat's viewpoint - at first, I thought it would be twee, but it isn't at all: a solid thread of gritty reality kept me clicking the page-button on my Kindle, and at the end, I just wanted to read more.

In fact, I so wanted to read more that I've now bought Oliver's sequel, "A Cat Called Hope Returns", and I'm off to get stuck in. Join me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real-life Garner, 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Alan Garner is best known for his books for younger teenagers, with their strong elements of folklore: first, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen and The Moon of Gomrath, both set around Alderley Edge in Cheshire, but stepping from the everyday world to a parallel world full of terror and delight. Then there's Elidor, where an ordinary family find they have a foot in two worlds and have to work through world-shaking events. Garner's Stone Book Quartet changes the focus slightly to cover times, rather than worlds; Red Shift deals with the way one's world changes with adolescence. The Owl Service visits Wales and Welsh myth and legend, bringing together the strands of place and time.

Alan Garner's later novels, Thursbitch and Strandloper, are less for children than for adults, but again the blend of time, place and mythologies is a powerful mix.

In "The Voice That Thunders" Alan Garner describes events and places in his own life that have influenced and inspired his work. The reader gains a real sense of Garner's ability to wander in alternative realities, and we see how powerful a tool his imagination is, and how powerful an influence Alderley Edge has on that imagination.

"The Voice That Thunders" is highly recommended for anyone who has read and enjoyed Garner's fiction. More appropriate for adults and older children than for the under-12s.

Snuff: (Discworld Novel 39) (Discworld Novels)
Snuff: (Discworld Novel 39) (Discworld Novels)
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely up to Snuff!, 25 Nov. 2011

The latest Discworld novel from Sir Terry Pratchett continues his winning way, mixing known characters with improbable situations to highlight our human preconceptions, prejudices and foibles. Now I have made it sound Worthy and Pious. It isn't. It's the 39th Discworld novel from Terry Pratchett, it stars Sam Vimes, and it is just as brilliant as the previous 38. Slapstick covering subtlety. Hidden depths. Just read it.
