SONS OF THUNDER PB
SONS OF THUNDER PB
by HOPWOOD DAVE
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth a read, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: SONS OF THUNDER PB (Paperback)
A friend really enjoyed this book and so very kindly lent it to me. I loved it. It is a re-telling of the Gospel but set today and involves people getting drunk, watching porn, gambling, spending time in prison and much more. It is fun and exciting. The characters are likeable; though I've spent the whole time trying to match them up with the traditional characters found in the New Testament because they have different (but similar) names! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone - not just Christians. It is interesting, accessible and I really enjoyed it. I would also consider reading other re-tellings of Bible stories set in the modern day because this one is so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 16 Aug 2012
I loved this book. But that's because I am a massive nerd and I love teen fantasy books that involve myths and legends. I love books that hint at secret societies and and other, hidden, worlds. I also like books with a bit of magic in them - the more 'old skool' the better. And this book covers most of these things so I was pretty much guaranteed to enjoy it! I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone my age who reads 'normal' books, however if you are aged 14 and enjoy teen fantasy novels then this is definitely for you. I loved it.


Honeymoon: And Other Stories
Honeymoon: And Other Stories
by Kevin Canty
Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible., 16 Aug 2012
Someone I went camping with was reading this and after I finished my book I picked up this one. I wish I hadn't. It was terrible. Absolutely terrible. It is supposedly about inappropriate love or something. One of the stories was about a 40 year-old woman sleeping with her 19 year-old nephew....how is that literature?! Or worth reading at all? It's just gross. And there was no plotline, just her talking about that. And another of the stories involved a girl being run over by a bus. And that was it. All the stories were either inappropriate or dull, some were a mixture of the two.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing happened!, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: Dedication (Kindle Edition)
Another girls in my group had brought this one along with her so I picked it up. I didn't really like it; it kept switching between modern day and the main character's high school years. It also didn't get moving with the plotline; I got to page 145 before anything much happened. I don't know how the authors filled the first 144 pages with so many words yet nothing actually happening, but they managed to! I definitely would not recommend it and I probably wouldn't read another book by them. Though, saying that, the ending was quite good - if a bit abrupt.


Amazonia
Amazonia
by James Rollins
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: Amazonia (Paperback)
This was a good adventure novel and definitely could be read by guys as well as girls (most of the books I tend to read are rather female-orientated...). Maybe I shouldn't have read it days before heading into the Amazon but that made it more fun! It's about a group of people who are thrown together from a number of backgrounds to follow a trail in the jungle and find the cure for a disease that could kill millions if they don't get to it on time. That sounds a bit cliche I know but it was really gripping and very exciting. I would definitely recommend it if you like a bit of adventure and intrigue. Oh and killer frogs, giant caiman, double agents and other fun things like that.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit graphic..., 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: A Kept Woman (Kindle Edition)
I have never, ever read a book so full of sex! Literally every other page was rather graphic and I was so surprised. The actual story line was really good - all about a woman who moved to New York with her husband as a bit of a trophy wife but then found him cheating and was left with nothing. She had never worked, had no home and no friends or family. The book follows her rebuilding her life and is a real story of power and overcoming all the obstacles put in her way. The only downside is that there are many, many incredibly graphic sex scenes which although they may be fun to read at first, they get rather repetitive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and challenging, 16 Aug 2012
Having never studied this book at school I read it recently and I wish I had studied it when I was younger! It is so, so, so good and really inspirational. And it really challenged me about how I see people. It made me think about life a bit more. I would really, really recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let down, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: The Great Gatsby (Paperback)
One of my friends raves about this book, it's his favourite and he reads it over and over again so I had very high expectations when I sat down to read it. Unfortunately it didn't really live up to them and I felt a bit let down. Maybe I am just terribly uncultured and didn't fully understand the meaning behind it all, but I didn't really enjoy it! It was kind of average to be honest. Luckily it's not very long so it's a quick read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: I Heart New York (Paperback)
This book is followed by I Heart Hollywood and I Heart Paris (and I Heart Vegas but I haven't read that one yet...) I loved these girly, feel-good books and just couldn't put them down! My sister recommended them to me and I couldn't recommend them highly enough if you want an easy to read, slightly superficial novel to read for a bit of escapism! They were fun and the characters were instantly likeable. I was genuinely concerned when it looked like it wasn't going to work out well for the female protagonist (Angela) and was far too emotionally involved in these characters lives! I think the main thing that made me fall in love with these books is that Angela leaves everything in England (after her friend's absolutely hilarious but kind of sad wedding) to start a new life abroad. She is such an adventurer and is willing to leave it all to start something new and better across the Atlantic. She is so spirited and doesn't just want a normal life. She always says the wrong thing and disaster seems to follow her around but she doesn't let it get her down which makes for a funny and very optimistic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, 16 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful and comprehensive for the first year of my geography undergraduate degree. I would recommend it if you are studying at this level but not for general reading!
