Who Let the Gods Out? (Immortal Chaos Book 1) by Mary Evans
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
My 14 year old son and I both loved this funny, inventive and deeply engaging book. The struggles of Elliot to cope with a difficult home life, troubles at school and then a god arriving in his cow shed kept us laughing out loud, turning pages and thoroughly gripped. I think it's a difficult act to pull off to have a story that is so funny, action packed and where you care a great deal about the main characters plight. And all of this plus the Queen making an even more surprising appearance that the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. It's the mark of any good book that I reluctantly finish it, wishing the experience didn't have to end, so I can't wait for the next instalment.
Fifteen Modern Tales of Attraction by Alison MacLeod

There isn't a weak story in this remarkable volume of short stories. Alison MacLeod has produced a series of quite remarkable stories about we live, love, fail and die. If that sounds bleak it is not. The stories render human life with such tender humanity that they are uplifting, heartbreaking and thought provoking. Like all great art they make you at the world with new eyes.
