5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average vegetarian cookbook!, 16 July 2014
This is not your average vegetarian cookbook. The recipes are very simple and easy to follow and the range of ingredients used are very wallet-friendly (if you discount things like chia seeds!) Since cooking from this book and adopting more of a vegetarian diet (meat and fish a couple of times a week), I have found that I have more energy, my skin is brighter and above all I feel far healthier. Notable recipes are the overnight bircher with peaches, the fritters full of greens and a delicious kale, burnt corn and sweet potato salad. I'm recommending to all my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, fresh and easy recipes packed with flavour, 27 Jun. 2013
This book is a must for anyone who enjoys cooking - the recipes are easy to follow, full of flavour and concentrate on using fresh, seasonal ingredients. The book is divided into sections so it caters for the cook who has very little time in the week, catering for larger groups of people and fast, effective lunch recipes. I've had this book for 6 months and it really is my go-to for recipes during the week when you have very little time in the kitchen but still want wholesome, tasty food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Openings to a thriller don't get much better than this!, 13 Jun. 2012
This review is from: The Hypnotist (Kindle Edition)
NO SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW!
The opening to THE HYPNOTIST is completely thrilling and gruesome. I was hooked from the very first page as you learn of a truly horrific case which Stockholm Detective Joona Linna is in charge of. However it is the hypnotist Erik Maria Bark who draws us in the most. He has secrets in his past. Secrets which may prevent him from working on the case. Using a hypnotist as the central character gave the novel a quirky edge and lifted it above the usual Scandi police procedural. The plot was multilayered following the case and also Erik's personal skeletons in the closet. The writing was pacy and filmic and made for a great summer holiday read. The second thriller THE NIGHTMARE is coming soon so I look forward to reading more by Lars Kepler.
