Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness (book review)…

Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness by Peter Godfrey-Smith My rating: 5 of 5 stars One incredibly interesting book for anyone who enjoys learning about evolution – and cephalopods, of course. Written by a philosopher, the writing is really accessible and really engages the reader – unlike a lot read more »

The Twilight Kingdom (Feyland #3) (book review)…

The Twilight Kingdom by Anthea Sharp My rating: 5 of 5 stars I quite enjoyed that. As i said about the first book in this trilogy, if you can get over the YA thing and just focus on the Faerie mixed up with VR thing then these books are really good. As i also said, read more »

The Bright Court (Feyland #2) (book review)…

The Bright Court by Anthea Sharp My rating: 4 of 5 stars Just like the first book in this series, i had to give it 4 stars, and for similar reasons. While this book didn’t let Tam’s ridiculous family issues interfere with the story line as much as the first book, i kept finding myself read more »

The Dark Realm (Feyland #1) (book review)…

The Dark Realm by Anthea Sharp My rating: 4 of 5 stars I gave this book a go because i got the first 3 books of the series on an Amazon 99p thing and i liked the idea of Faerie being able to bridge through VR. The good bit was the Faerie and VR stuff, read more »

Gulliver’s Travels (book review)…

Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift My rating: 5 of 5 stars I decided to read this after reading ‘The Toymakers’, in which ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ gets more than a passing mention. I used to think that ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ was a children’s book, but how wrong i was. Maybe that’s the way the establishment wants everyone to read more »

The Toymakers (book review)…

The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale My rating: 5 of 5 stars When this book came up on Bookbub as a 99p deal i was immediately attracted to it. Yes, i do judge books by their covers, and also by their titles. So i went to Amazon to check it out and it stated that it read more »

Red Queen (book review)…

Red Queen by Christina Henry My rating: 5 of 5 stars I really enjoyed reading ‘Alice’ and was expecting a bit more of the same, but this book feels quite different. Whereas Alice had me feeling like i was reading the adventure of an escaped patient from a max security mental hospital who hasn’t had read more »

Alice (book review)…

Alice by Christina Henry My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow. This was awesome. This can pretty much be read as the story of a paranoid schizophrenic who has escaped from a max security mental hospital and is rapidly withdrawing after being heavily medicated for years on anti-psychotics. It truly has the hall marks of read more »

Septimania (book review)…

Septimania by Jonathan Levi My rating: 1 of 5 stars Have you ever found yourself in a dream that is just totally fucked up and makes no sense, but you’re dreaming, you have no choice, and the dream just goes on until you finally wake up in a cold sweaty bed needing a change of read more »

Lotus Blue (book review)…

Lotus Blue by Cat Sparks My rating: 4 of 5 stars I really enjoyed the book right up until the end, which just didn’t seem to come up to the standard of the rest of the book. After a really enthralling adventure it really felt like the ending was rushed to its conclusion – hence read more »
