In My Own Words:
I am so sorry but I am unable to review any self-published books. I have far too many books I have searched out and bought waiting to be read, so my to be read pile contains 6 months of reading material.

As requests from self-published authors happen, despite this disclaimer, on an almost daily basis, I am unable even to reply with the information above, to explain why, with regret, I can't re… Read more

Smart Weigh Precision Digital Vanity / Bathroom Sc&hellip by Smart Weigh
These simple, lightweight, streamlined digital scales are visually pleasing and, I have to assume, accurate. I have to assume accuracy unless I could immediately step on scales at the doctors.

David Mitchell is a curious writer - he has the ability to effortlessly inhabit many different kinds of voices, of differing character, and believably writes first person narrative from a male or female perspective, from young and old, from different cultures, places and indeed from different times. (The 1000 Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, Ghostwritten, Cloud Atlas)

He can also plagiarise himself, mock himself, and write concertedly in a single voice (Black Swan Green)
