"Back to the alternative 1988, with dodos, professional croquet and George Formby as President. Good fun."

""I believe you rewind many reruns of old thoughts which in fact ought to have been completely thought out long ago". Wise words indeed."

"Excellent. Very disturbing childrens book, but in a good way. Had a deep effect on me, much to my surprise. Can't wait for the film."

"This book is well written and tells an absorbing tale. Yet it didn't grab me as much as the Kite Runner. Perhaps because I never expected to enjoy that book; I knew what to expect this time."

"I really disliked the main character of this book, enough to nearly put me off reading. There was *something* that kept me going though, something very compelling. All credit for that."

"I'm not going to be liked much for this, but I was disappointed by Holes. Probably because I had heard so many great reviews and I was expecting a killer twist. My fault, not the book's."

"As close as I'll ever get to chick-lit, even though it's written by a guy. I guess I like Mr Gayle as he shows that men can be neurotic , thus proving the trait isn't exclusive to us girls."

"I love Jon Ronson's columns in the paper and I love these collections. Enough said really, it's a matter of whether his world view corresponds with your own."

"Read this before 'Talking It Over' and it works okay as a stand-alone. Interesting style and easy to read. A lot darker than you first realise."

"Rather than viewing this as the 'original novel', I used it to fill in the background to 'Love Etc'. Enjoyable yet an ultimately sad and tragic story."

"An excellent book on the sheer incompetence that was the American occupation if Iraq. Beyond belief."
