1.0 out of 5 stars hmm not much to say really, 28 May 2006
This review is from: Labyrinth (Paperback)
I am a fanatical reader and can usually finish a book within hours but this book was not particularly enthralling. Its lack of creativity and use of an over exposed plot, the Holy grail, i mean sheesh how times has that been done. It was not even written in an imaginative way is is totally filled with cliques and over descriptions. These make the book longer than is needed, although the searching for clues is drawn out to add suspense i feel that it has been over drawn so it it feels like you have to crawl along just to get to the next fast paced part. Mosse uses a style of writing which would be good for thriller type books but that does not really fit the category in which she writes, she over thinks and so has made an average plot mundane. Not a book i would choose to read again. In fact I'd rather chew my fingers off one by one than turn the pages of that book once more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderous Wooding, 28 May 2006
This review is from: Poison (Paperback)
Wooding graces us with another refreshingly brilliant story line. He has an amazing ability to create extensive plot lines without the need to make any of the characters seem over the top, although some parts of the book were very stereotypical and slightly predicable it offered a variety of twists in the main storyline and a fantstic ending. Wooding definately has some skill to be able to produce a book like this, although it uses themes that many other books seem to use i.e. fairies and elves it takes a more realistic approach and views the subjest from a totally different angle. It is well worth reading even if only to understand that those mythical creatures used in stories, those that have become stale do not have to be that way. Wooding uses fresh insight and imagination to bring them back to life again. Another great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wilde? Please! Wooding an imaginative genius, 28 May 2006
This review is from: Storm Thief (Hardcover)
This is another fantastic book by Wooding, although i must say that it does not narratively compare to some of his other books, it is still a work of genius. he is imaginative and the story line is most definately thought provoking and essentially possible. The storyline was extremely deep in places and though many authors sturggle to keep more than one storlyine afloat Wooding easily manages this and sustains the charactisations throughout producing a consistantly good book which i must recommend.
