5.0 out of 5 stars Fiction that might come true, 8 Dec 2009
This review is from: The Dying Light (Hardcover)
I don't normally read detective/'thriller' books but this got a good review so I bought it and thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it 'predicts' much that is threatening to our democracies just on the basis of laws we already have.


The Handmaid's Tale (Contemporary Classics)

Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars A despairing challenge, 6 Nov 2009
One cannot say that this is 'enjoyable', because it is so dystopic, but she is such a wonderful and enthralling writer. The tragedy is that the awful USA that she paints would not be so difficult to achieve - all the elements are already there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A batty book, 5 Oct 2009
This is an enjoyable but rather light book - more a collection of fascinating 'case studies' of oddities in nature.

I learnt an enormous amount about history in the Americas from this book - much of it exploding old myths.
