Books I Bought Because I Liked the Cover

Ms. L. M. Green
 
The Blade Itself: Book One Of The First Law (Gollancz S.F.): 1
The Blade Itself: Book One Of The First Law (Gollancz S.F.): 1
"Bought purely because the cover is interesting, and thi is now one of my favourite fantasy novels. This is the first in a trilogy, all of which are gripping. This is gritty, funny fantasy at its best."
The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chonicle: Book 1 (The Kingkiller Chronicle)
The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chonicle: Book 1 (The Kingkiller Chronicle)
"An intersting fantasy story. Perhaps a little too long, and the protagonist is somewhat self-involved. I found it was worth getting to the end, but very little actually happened in 800 pages."
The Lies of Locke Lamora
The Lies of Locke Lamora
"It's hard to summarise this book. Locke and his gang of thieves play intricate confidence games , preying on the aristocracy. Good characterisation, tense in places, and great fun in others."
Heart-Shaped Box (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
Heart-Shaped Box (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
"An aging retired rock star is terrorised by a ghost he bought on the internet. This book can make you sympathise with the most unlikely characters. I found it impossible to put down."
Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One
Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One
"The first in the series that was adapted for TV. I enjoyed the first three set in the world of Harry Dresden, city wizard, but don't feel compelled to read the rest"
Remainder
Remainder
"A very original story about a man trying to recreate a scene from his past."
Priestess Of The White: Book 1 of the Age of the Five
Priestess Of The White: Book 1 of the Age of the Five
"A less successful venture in judging books by their cover. I wouldn't recommend this. The characters are uninteresting and the story drags."
Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1)
Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1)
"Depressing yet somehow compelling fantasy. This is the cover that drew me to Robin Hobb. Current editions are less attractive, but the book - and the series - is very good."
American Gods
American Gods
"Atmospheric, dark, troubling, and sometimes hilarious. Neil Gaiman's finest novel."
