Can the Gods Cry? (Vagabonds) by Allan Cameron
2.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going, 21 Sep 2013
I bought this as it was a Kindle special offer, and I made it through the first story but it was heavy going. Theatrical, incomprehensible, weird - I just didn't have the patience for the trippy writing style. Don't think I'll go back to read anymore.
Ausperity: Live the Life You Want for Less by Lucy Tobin

There's quite a lot of information in here, but it's very UK, and even south of England focused - referencing websites etc local to those areas. I live in Spain, so there's only so much of it that was of use to me. It might also benefit from some concise summaries at the ends of each chapter of measures you can take, as otherwise it's quite a lot to take in.
The Half-Life Of Hannah by Nick Alexander
The Half-Life Of Hannah by Nick Alexander
The first 30% of the book didn't seem to go anywhere, but when it picked up the pace toward the end, it got more interesting. The central theme is probably interesting for a lot of people too - the idea of having compromised on your life and the question of 'what if?' The story is based in a holiday environment, in France - so I guess could be light reading if you were doing similar!
