A Child at Heart – Christopher Phillips

Click on image to buy the book. Or to give it its full title… ‘A Child at Heart: Unlocking Your Creativity, Curiosity, and Reason at Every Age and Stage of Life’. Those of us interested in longevity and remaining young, fit and healthy as long as possible, realise early on that it all begins in read more »

The Gondola Maker: A Novel of 16th-Century Venice – Laura Morelli

Click on image to buy the book. I’ve never been to Venice and other than, it’s got canals, i know nothing about the place, so i can genuinely say that it’s not required to enjoy this book. Our protagonist, Luca, is the oldest son of one of Venices finest gondola makers, and when he completely read more »

Magnificent Devices Bundle, Volume 1 – Shelley Adina

Click on image to buy the book. While i found most of this rather ridiculous, like Clair, our 17 year old protagonist, is James Bond on super miraculous, mentally and physically, performance enhancing drugs or something, it is still at the same time a rather enjoyable read. 12 days to get through 4 books isn’t read more »

Meadowland: the private life of an English field – John Lewis-Stempel…

Click on image to buy the book. A beautiful book from a wonderful writer. The reader is transported to a working Herefordshire farm where they journey through the life of a real, English meadow from Jan 1st to Dec 31st, wonderfully detailing what most wouldn’t notice but what, to a meadow, are crucially important aspects read more »

Temporal Contingency (Big Sigma Book 4) – Joseph Lallo…

Click on image to buy the book. Another great addition to this incredible series. I’m not usually a fan of temporal sci-fi stuff as most of what’s out there tends to run up its own arse and leave the reader or viewer with their heads shoved up there’s, but this book doesn’t feel like that read more »

The Big Sigma Collection: Volume 1 – Joseph Lallo…

Click on image to buy the book. What a great collection. Having really enjoyed ‘Bypass Gemini’ i jumped straight into the rest of the books. This collection also features 3 short stories that give more background to some characters in the main novels, which were really enjoyable to read. I really can’t say enough about read more »

Bypass Gemini (Big Sigma #1) – Joseph Lallo…

Click on image to buy the book. Now this is a writer who is obviously having fun. Admittedly there’s a thin line between a writer having a lot of fun with a story and the story becoming a little ridiculous and this book does seem to skim a little close to that line on occasion, read more »

Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategy – Miyamoto Musashi…

Click on image to buy the book. Another book that’s sat on my Kindle for years unread. But having just finished David Kirks’ books it really felt like the right time to read this. It’s hard to judge this book in any real contemporary terms because it simply has no place in the contemporary world. read more »

Cipher Hill (Free-Wrench #5) – Joseph Lallo…

Click on image to buy the book. More wonderful, shenaniganic fun aboard ‘Wind Breaker’. Sadly, for now, this is the last book in Joseph’s ‘Free Wrench’ series, but i certainly hope he’ll be adding some more at some point. Captain Mack and the crew are just too much fun to leave them here forever. I read more »

Sword of Honour – David Kirk…

Click on image to buy the book. I loved this book. Far better than the first – which i gave 4 stars. Looking back over the 2 books it felt to me like David gained in confidence writing tales about Musashi and also that he has come to know him better – like he’s beginning read more »
