5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but infuriating, 14 Mar. 2006
One of the most compelling novels you're likely to read, but also one of the most frustrating. I simply could not buy into the reconciliation between the Eve and Kevin. No amount of parental love could transcend Kevin's final act of evil, and no amount of liberal thinking or psychological analysis could justify it. The power of this novel lies in confronting evil, not overcoming it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Halliwell of tea and biscuits, 11 Oct. 2005
I gobbled up this book in a sitting. In fact I was so absorbed by it I didn't even put the kettle on. The authors do a great service by marshalling legions of biscuits, new and old, and providing a superb critique of the major varieties. Barring the odd unaccountable omission (what happened to the presumptuously titled Nice biscuit, for example?) the work is very thorough and wholly digestible. Wonderful. Procure with confidence.
