4.0 out of 5 stars Coffins, 25 Aug 2006
"Coffins" is the first novel of Rodman Philbrick's that I have read although from doing a little research into him it would seem he is quite an prolific American author with many titles published including "Freak the Mighty" which was made into the well known film "The Mighty" starring Sharon Stone and Gillian Anderson. Going back to "Coffins" it's not the sort of book I would have bought myself; indeed I didn't as it was bought as a present from my mother-in-law, who as a non-English speaker is perhaps not in the best position to judge my literary tastes! But that said it's very nice to be able to report that this time she outdid herself and picked out an extremely entertaining book and I… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Death on the Downs, 28 July 2006
My usual staple reading diet is a steady supply of intriguing thrillers or criminal detective stories but every now and then after reading about half a dozen of this "heavier" type of novel I feel myself in need of refreshment which I satisfy by reading something lighter and a lot less demanding and in this sense Simon Brett's novels are a perfect fit.

"Death on the Downs" is the second book in Mr Brett's latest series of mild comic murder mysteries "The Feathering Mysteries." The series concerns two ladies of a certain age namely retired home office civil servant Carole Seddon and 50-something free spirited hippy Jude.

When Carole's faithful Labrador, Gulliver, cuts… Read more
