Review

"500 expertly potted plots and personal comments on a wide range of pop and proper prose fiction." (The Times)

"Generous, enjoyable and well informed." (Observer)

"A dazzling array of genres, periods, styles and tastes… chatty, insightful, unprejudiced (but not uncritical) and wise." (Times Literary Supplement)

"Anyone hooked on fiction should be warned: this book will feed your addiction." (Mail on Sunday)

"A glorious selection of books to tempt you - all considered in witty and elegant prose. Highly recommended." (Sue Magee The Bookbag)

Book Description
