My James by Ralph Bulger
My James by Ralph Bulger
I wasn't sure if I'd be able to read this book. I still remember the horrific murder of little James clearly, it's hard to believe it was 21 years ago. I'm glad his father Ralph found the strength to tell his story as we should never forget what happened to that little boy. Justice was never done and this book reveals the inadequacies of the British justice system in dealing with the perpetrators. What they did was truly evil and no punishment would ever be sufficient.

This was a very difficult book to read due to it's harrowing content and I found myself in tears reading about not only what happened to James but also what his family went through. I hope this book serves to… Read more
The Universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence

I've had this book on my wish list for ages and when I finally got round to reading it - wow, I absolutely loved it. At first I wasn't sure what to make of Alex but once he reveals his story you realise how apt the book title is.

It moves at quite a pace and you just never know what fate will befall Alex next. He tells his story in a very matter of fact way which makes it all the more poignant, especially the ending.

So many books promise so much but fall at the last hurdle. This is not the case with this book, it's magnificent right to the last page and I found myself wanting to know what happens next to Alex. I can't recommend this highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moves at a good pace, 18 Nov 2013
I loved this sequel to Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End. The utter devastation wrought by the virus is described vividly and with the action spilt between Madrid and Tenerife, the story moves at a good pace.

Just when you think the characters are safe, a new twist happens so it's never predictable. A year after the demise of civilisation as we know it and you'd think the remainder of the human race would stand solid together to rebuild the world and fight a common enemy but no, it could never be that simple.

I can't wait to read Book 3!
