JANE EYRE (Penguin Classics)
JANE EYRE (Penguin Classics)
"Why, oh why is this considered the greatest novel a Bronte has ever written when its not even the best Charlotte wrote. Not a touch on the fantastic "Vilette""
Surfacing
Surfacing
"Her poorest novel to date, a massive letdown. This novel is a shambles, i love atwood but i don't even think she knew what she was doing with this novel."
Atonement
Atonement
"Laboriously Self-Indulgent with a very annoying main character. That may be the point but it bodes for annoying reading."
The Fox , The Captain's Doll and The Ladybird (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics S.)
The Fox , The Captain's Doll and The Ladybird (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics S.)
"One of my lecturers cites this as a masterpiece; it's actually a mindless anti-feminist rant that is both highly offensive and shames the great D.H. Lawrence ."
Birdsong (Vintage War)
Birdsong (Vintage War)
"The only thing Sebastian Faulkes is good for is sending you to sleep. Dull, boring and extremely predictable."
Pride and Prejudice (Oxford World's Classics)
Pride and Prejudice (Oxford World's Classics)
"I've nothing against Jane Austen per se, its just she writes same-old formulaic wishy-wash romances. Sorry I'm being harsh. If you want a good Austen, read the mush more satisfying Mansfield Park."
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
"An entertaining read, but very simplistic (as an autobiography should be), it's just a joke that this is widely read for degrees in Literature."
Haunted
Haunted
"I'm sure I'll now get lynched by the legion of spooky James Herbert fans but, please, this absolutely puerile and his writing stile is akin to a twelve-year-old."
