The Absence of Nectar
The Absence of Nectar
by Kathy Hepinstall
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 10 Nov 2004
Wow. Best book I've read so far this year. Children Alice and Boone Fendar are convinced that their stepfather, Simon Jester, will kill them. Meanwhile, Boone has been writing to Persely Snow, who keeps escaping from the insane asylum. Soon, the children meet Persely, and their mother Meg urges them to run away. Highly suspenseful, compelling and shouldn't be missed. (A+)


Evidence
Evidence
by Emma Tom
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars Unengaging, 10 Nov 2004
This review is from: Evidence (Paperback)
The blurb sounded interesting, but the 50-page test proved that the novel itself wasn't. Maybe this could have been improved with a first-person narrative from Cheryl's point of view. (DNF)

Three Men in a Raft: an Improbable Journey down the Amazon
by Ben Kozel
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 10 Nov 2004
An Australian, a Canadian and a South African decide to travel 7000ks of the Amazon in a raft, surviving dangerous whitewater, diseases and guerillas. I don't really have an interest in rafting, but this was a gripping read. (A+)

3.0 out of 5 stars Forensic Mystery, 10 Nov 2004
This review is from: Deadly Decisions (Paperback)
Forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan investigates into biker gangs - yes, the topic is that of some very bad movies. However, the book wasn't that bad. (B+)

4.0 out of 5 stars Blanked Out, 10 Nov 2004
Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is in Guatemala to dig up the remains in mass graves. Meanwhile, four young women are missing, including the daughter of the Canadian ambassador. And how does stem cell research fit into all this? Well, I must've blanked out during that stage, but it sure was nice to see my city, Melbourne (in Australia), get a mention! (A)

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 10 Nov 2004
This review is from: Deal Breaker (Paperback)
Ex-basketball player and current sports agent Myron Bolitar investigates when one of his charges is sent a pornographic magazine. But Kathy Culver was supposedly dead, so how did she end up in the magazine? Interesting and funny (witty words rather than slapstick situations), but my concentration lapsed a little bit. (B+)

3.0 out of 5 stars Far Too Long, 10 Nov 2004
Now in his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter is not getting along with the new Defence of the Dark Arts professor, who's causing trouble all over the school. But Lord Voldemort is still alive, and he may be possessing Harry. So big that it was difficult to hold, this book was interesting but far too long. (B)

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 10 Nov 2004
Once again, Lena Adams is the most fascinating character in this third book of the Grant County series. Now a security guard, she's not only a suspect in Jeffrey Tolliver's latest case, but she could also be protecting her new acquaintance. Meanwhile, Sara Linton's pregnant sister Tessa is stabbed at the first crime scene, and it could very well be linked to the supposed suicides. Am very much looking forward to reading the fourth instalment next year! (A+)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Creative, 10 Nov 2004
This review is from: Watch Your Mouth (Paperback)
The period of Joseph's life spent living with his girlfriend Cyn and her family is part-opera and part-twelve-step-programme. Is what Joseph thinks is happening REALLY happening, or just the work of his dirty mind? And is Mimi Glass' golem (a clay creature that rises to do its master's bidding) really killing people, or is Joseph the one who's a monster? Daniel Handler is the master of American black comedy, and this was a very creative book. (A+)
