4.0 out of 5 stars The Drift by Diana Dru Botsford, 6 Jan. 2013
The premise of the story is good. IOA Trainees come to see if they can use the Weapons Chair in Antarctica but something goes wrong. Told in different sections the author has taken great care with detail. We see the teams "ongoing events" mainly from Daniel's perspective the rest from General George Hammond. Following "The Four Dragons" Diana has carefully included the relative information from that book into the new story. From dramatic worldwide catastrophies to heart wrenching scenes in Antarctica, this is a good book for the collector. I have given it four out of five because in my opinion SG1's contribution to the story could have been shorter and tighter at times and extended more in the here and now. I won't spoil the plot so sorry,you will have to read it to know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2012 Book Club Review Dickens's Victorian London, 9 Mar. 2012
As the Wellow Owls Womens Institute (Hampshire) celebrate Charles Dickens's books we purchased "Dickens's Victorian London: The Museum of London". Almost everyone of Dickens's novels refer to places found in these fabulous photographs. If you Love Charles Dickens's books this purchase is a must.


For the Sake of Her Child
For the Sake of Her Child
by Meg Hutchinson
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars For the Sake of Her Child by Meg Hutchinson, 15 Nov. 2010
A story with good rounded characters. However Anna Bradley gains wealth, friends and opportunities too easily. This unfortunately makes the story difficult to believe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stargate SG1: Four Dragons, 8 Nov. 2010
The Forward in this book sounds exciting,especially if you are a Daniel Fan. But there's the rub,more like inaction on his part for most of the book I'm afraid.
His time is taken up with a board game with Lord Yu (we are not quite sure why).Dealing with four colours, four dragon pieces (with different coloured eyes), four guards and four children. In China the number four is considered unlucky and is avoided so I'm not sure why it is so prominent in this book (unless it evaluates to the four members of SG1. Red for Jack, Grey for Teal'c, Blue for Sam and Green for Daniel).
A book for your collection, but not one of the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stargate SG1: Power Behind the Throne, 8 Nov. 2010
This book is not the usual SG1 format. It is harder edged, good descriptive writing. The Tok'ra request SG1 to find an unusual weapon, a Mujina. a creature with potential for good and evil. The creature seeks it's perfect companion, not caring who it uses. The action is reminiscent of events in the Second World War with exterminations and Death Trains. Teal'c has a prominent part in the action and story telling. I read this book quite quickly and then read it again. I appreciated it much more the second time.


My Name Is Memory
My Name Is Memory
by Ann Brashares
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares, 10 Sept. 2010
This review is from: My Name Is Memory (Hardcover)
This is a novel in the modern trend "to have no ending". Daniel is constantly reborn to find, lose and finally love Lucy. After many reincarnations he makes Lucy safe and leaves to kill the one person who can destroy that love. The last chapter is a letter from Daniel "Dearest Lucy, I may not be able to send this letter today or tomorrow...love demands everything... youll remember who we are..
But does he return or is Lucy still waiting?
A lovely book, well written, but I REALLY NEED AN END.
