I had started the Harry Hole series with The Redbreast (thinking it was the detective's first outing) and then went back to in-fill with The Bat and Cockroaches (only published in the UK after the later books became a success). Having been disappointed with the rather amateurish Bat (set in Sydney), I didn't have high expectations from another early Hole book set outside of his native Norway. Fortunately, second time around, Nesbo has started to get a grip on his travelogue tendencies and although...
I was drawn into this book right from the word go, the idea of someone running away to Ireland to escape what's going on in their life was really intriguing to me and then there were all the secrets. Family secrets, her secrets, secrets of what went on in the lighthouse, it was so compelling and I wanted to find out what was going on. The setting of the book was also great, roughest coastlines and quaint village feel, a roaring fire and a good old pub thrown in for good measure too, what's not to...
I loved this. Crime novels aren't usually my genre of choice, and I admit I picked this up once I knew it was written by JK Rowling, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. What I liked most was how character-driven it is: for a large part of the book, the story is more about Strike (an unusual protagonist) and Robin than about the crime itself. I'm really looking forward to reading the second one.
DI Rebus is buried under a pile of paperwork but an escalating dispute between the upstart Tommy Telford and Big Ger Cafferty's gang gives Rebus an escape clause.

A useful and complete identification guide aimed at amateurs and professionals alike. The illustrations are accurate and easy to refer to and show the variations in colouring between males, females and juveniles. The explainations and advice given in the introduction is particularly useful for beginners and is a useful reminder to more experienced ornithologists. My only critique is the size of the book as it makes it a little awkward and heavy for a day out in the field (admittedly this can't really...

Only three people share the secret - the baby's parents and a trusted neighbour. Together the adults make a difficult decision: to go through surgery and raise the child as a boy named Wayne. But as Wayne grows up within the hyper-male hunting culture of his father, his shadow-self - a girl he thinks of as 'Annabel' - is never entirely extinguished, and indeed is...

Human life is a staggeringly strange thing. On the surface of a ball of rock falling around a nuclear fireball in the blackness of a vacuum the laws of nature conspired to create a naked ape that can look up at the stars and wonder where it came from. What is a human being? Objectively, nothing of consequence. Particles of dust in an infinite arena, present for an instant in eternity. Clumps of atoms in a universe with more galaxies than people. And yet a human being is necessary for the question...

Ray Winstone's amazing talent for bringing out the humanity buried inside his often brutal screen characters - violent offender in Scum, wife-beater in Nil by Mouth, retired blagger in Sexy Beast - has made him one of the most charismatic actors of his generation. But how do these uncompromising and often haunting performances square with his off-duty reputation as the ultimate salt-of-the-earth diamond geezer? The answer lies in the East End of his youth. Revisiting the bomb-sites and boozers of...
Knowing next to nothing about the stock market I read this having loved Michael Lewis' other books, he seems to be able to turn any subject into a good tale, in Flashboys he explores the reasons why the key players got involved in high frequency trading and humanises them along the way. There is nothing dry here, whenever I seemed to get a bit lost amongst share prices and data speeds he manages to summarise in a way that at least gives me the impression that I understand. It's an admirable piece...
"Voss" describes an epic journey, both physical and spiritual. The eponymous hero, Johann Voss, is based on Ludwig Leichhardt, the nineteenth-century German explorer and naturalist who had already conducted several major expeditions into the Australian outback before making an ambitious attempt to cross the entire continent from east to west in 1848. He never returned. White re-imagines his story with visionary intensity. Voss' last journey across the desert and the waterlogged plains of central...
Us is a warm and witty novel that I couldn't put down. It follows a married couple and their teenage son on a make or break holiday around Europe, offset with recollections of how the couple met and why the holiday is such a crucial moment for the family. Nicholl's writing is full of acute observation and often very very funny, but melancholy also runs through the novel. I was completely absorbed from the first page and by the end I was attached to the characters to an extent I hadn't anticipated...
'I'll put you in my diary!' comedian Kenneth Williams was known to threaten on occasion, although tantalisingly he kept the journal to himself during his lifetime. Here at last, in one spellbinding volume, are four million words of it. For more than forty years, from his sixteenth birthday until the eve of his unexpected death in 1988, the beloved actor and outrageous 'Carry On' star Kenneth Williams kept a candid diary. Devastatingly honest about himself, he is equally unsparing in his verdicts...

Expecting an in-depth Chemistry thesis, I was quite pleasantly surprised by the nature of the book, which held me captivated throughout the duration of reading. I really enjoyed the narrative perspective of the piece; myself, being torn between biochemical inclinations and literary pursuits! Although, this book does remain largely scientific, it contains hints of compassion and culture thrusted into the chemical lattice. It was an inspiring piece, that gave my textbook knowledge of Chemistry, a practical...

Divergent is a novel that is best read prior to viewing the film adaptation, for the reason that you can only truly feel connected with the world of Beatrice Prior by reading Veronica Roth's detailed descriptions of this dystopian period. Whilst there are many elements of The Hunger Games in this novel (in that the characters live in a dangerous and somewhat undesirable society), Divergent is unique due to Roth's depiction of a juxtaposition between the struggles of love and friendship, and the tribulations...

Peter Lynch believes that average investors have advantages over Wall Street experts. Since the best opportunities can be found at the local mall or in their own places of employment, beginners have the chance to learn about potentially successful companies long before before professional analysts discover them. This headstart on the experts is what produces 'tenbaggers', the stocks that appreciate tenfold or more and turn an average stock portfolio into a star performer. In this fully updated...

Stephen Fry invites readers to take a glimpse at his life story in the unputdownable More Fool Me. 'Oh dear I am an arse. I expect there'll be what I believe is called an "intervention" soon. I keep picturing it. All my friends bearing down on me and me denying everything until my pockets are emptied. Oh the shame.' In his early thirties, Stephen Fry - writer, comedian, star of stage and screen - had, as they say, 'made it'. Much loved in A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Blackadder and Jeeves and Wooster...

This is the number one bestseller. Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood? Is sleeping with someone after 2 dates and 6 weeks of texting the same as getting married after 2 meetings and 6 months of letter writing in Jane Austen's day? Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and redisovering her sexuality in what some...
Rebus is juggling four cases trying to nail one killer - who might just lead back to the infamous Bible John. And he's doing it under the scrutiny of an internal inquiry led by a man he has just accused of taking backhanders from Glasgow's Mr Big. As if this wasn't enough, there are TV cameras at his back investigating a miscarriage of justice, making Rebus a criminal in the eyes of a million or more viewers. Just one mistake is likely to mean an unpleasant and not particularly speedy death or, worse...

This is delightful little book about the bumblebee, written by Goulson, one of the few people who are experts on this amazing insect. In the book he explains about the different species that we have in this country, and outlines some of the research projects that he has been doing on the populations of these bees, re-introduction programmes and other projects that his students have undertaken. He writes about a property that he bought in France, that he is turning the brass back into a wildlife meadow...
This is the first book in the thrilling, chilling new series from no. 1 bestselling author of Gone, Michael Grant. I remembered my name - Mara. But, standing in that ghostly place, faced with the solemn young man in the black coat with silver skulls for buttons, I could recall nothing else about myself. And then the games began. Think you know the meaning of suspense? Think again...The Messenger sees the darkness in young hearts, and the damage it inflicts upon the world. If they go unpunished, he...
Lee Child does it again, Personal is pace perfect, vicious and written with enough mystery and suspense to keep the narrative from drying out and becoming just another generic thriller. I will never tire of Jack Reacher, his unwillingness to fail and his righteous, albeit vigilante, style of justice harkens to comic book super heroes and the now iconic Jack Bauer of 24. I also love that Child drip feeds you just a little bit more of Reacher's past to keep empathy levels at a reasonable ebb, so as...
As most of you know The Wolf of Wall Street is now a major film. Like most films taken from books I always like to read them first before I watch. If you are easily put off by foul and abusive language then this book is certainly not for you. If however you don't mind the language along with corruption, greed, drugs, sex & pure wildness then this is the book for you. Jordan Belfort writes a brutally honest account of his life during the late eighty's into the nineties on how he changed Wall Street...

Rooftoppers is a magical story of unwavering hope and courage. The strong opening image of a baby floating on the sea in a cello case, wrapped in a musical score, sets the tone for Rooftoppers. It is the kind of story that invites the reader to cross between the world of realism and magic much as Skellig by David Almond does. In Skellig, the reader is never sure if the man in the garage is an angel, a tramp or an owl. In the same way, Katherine Rundell mixes the reality of bleeding wounds and broken...

But Ben is a political journalist, and can feel that something isn't right. Ben starts investigating for himself and soon discovers Diana was leading a double life he knew nothing...
You will not be disappointed if you read Max Hasting's account of the opening and first months of the First World War. It helps that this is the most exciting period, when the campaign flowed freely and the balance of victory swung between the Central Powers and the Entente before stalemate set in with the "rush to the sea", but Hastings' measured account brings clarity and understanding to the politics and military imperatives that brought a century of peace in Europe to an horrific end. He is quite...
For me, although it was never going to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, ‘The Da Vinci Code’ was, along with the first Langdon novel ‘Angels and Demons’, great escapism. A mystery, twists and turns, imminent danger, historical intrigue whose tentacles reach into the present and threaten the future, various ancient specific conspiracies directly needing investigation… it made for great reading. Brown had captured a great formula, centred around a particular historical ‘mystery’: Who...
This book was initially recommended to me by a couple of friends, but at first I dismissed it. I guess I was too wary and afraid to read it, since the quick research that I carried out on it revealed to me that this is a story about content including the World Wars, Nazi Germany, The Holocaust and the unjust persecution of the Jewish people. I had already experienced The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas on screen a couple of years earlier, and that was heart wrenchingly unjust. I didn't want to experience...
Kit doesn't know who his mother is. What he does know, however, is that his father, Guy, is dying of cancer. Feeling his death is imminent, Guy gathers around him his oldest friends - or at least the friends with the most to lose by his death. Paul - the rising star in the Labour party who dreads the day a tape they all made at university might come to light; Alison and Robbie, corporate bunnies whose relationship is daily more fractious; Pris and Haze, once an item, now estranged, and finally Hol...
A Borgesian-style rendition of the classic theme of the Doppelganger, Nobel Prize winner Saramago takes the reader to a lucid yet surreal world where Senhor Afonso discovers his double in a film. Against his better judgement, he seeks out his nemesis and finds that with his identity at stake, the world is not big enough for them both...the problem is, his double has the same idea. Alongside "Blindness", "The Double" is my favourite Saramago novel. He definitely deserved the Nobel Prize for Literature...
I love this series! It is honestly an amazing and utterly un-put-downable!!! I am currently a few chapters from the end of City of Heavenly Fire, and so far it's brilliant! I saw the film of City of Bones and just decided to start reading this series and I just LOVE all the books so much! If you enjoy quite mystical and adventurous books then this is PERFECT for you! If you enjoyed books like 'The Hunger Games' or "Divergent' then READ THIS NOW!!!
In this new paperback edition of the classic bestseller, you'll be taken on a hilarious, fast-paced ride through the history of ideas. Author Scott Berkun will show you how to transcend the false stories that many business experts, scientists, and much of pop culture foolishly use to guide their thinking about how ideas change the world. With four new chapters on putting the ideas in the book to work, updated references and over 50 corrections and improvements, now is the time to get past the myths...
I couldn't wait to finish Shock Of The Fall because I was excited to write a review of how beautiful it was and I have put the book down feeling utterly speechless. Words don't describe the beauty and eloquence of this narrative that touches on the gritty reality of living with a metal illness and living with others that do too. It truly reflects the inside of a sufferers mind and it does so with some kind of jagged elegance that forms a synthetic bond with the reader. It goes agains the archetypal...

Hilary Mantel is one of Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed writers. In these ten bracingly subversive tales, all her gifts of characterisation and observation are fully engaged, summoning forth the horrors so often concealed behind everyday facades.

In an eighteen-year playing career for Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest (under Brian Clough), Manchester United (under Sir Alex Ferguson) and Celtic, Roy Keane dominated every midfield he led to glory. Aggressive and highly competitive, his attitude helped him to excel as captain of Manchester United from 1997 until his departure in 2005. Playing at an international level for nearly all his career, he represented the Republic of Ireland for over fourteen years, mainly as team captain, until an incident...
100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights; to trust money, books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the...
I was expecting to love this book; I loved Rebecca, it's set by the coast, it's dark and intense, it involves smuggling. But it fell short and I think the main reasons for this were the irritating characters, perhaps the way they had been developed, the dialogue wasn't really as good as I think Daphne du Maurier can be - perhaps it is the maturity of her later work that I found lacking, and it generally doesn't give the reader much room to think - you feel every point is really hammered home and...

As with The Hundred Year Old Man Who Jumped Out of the Window and Disappeared, the pieces of this story fit neatly together like a well made piece of flat-packed furniture. It's hard to imagine how a girl who is a toilet attendant in Africa could ever get into a situation where she could save a king, but she does! Again, Jonas Jonasson has written a story which is funny, touching, exciting and a really good read!
I can never say enough good things about a Bill Bryson book; I simply love his writing style. However despite having adored all of his travel and literary books so far I have looked at this one for a long while, wondering if even he might be unable to get me through it. I needn't have worried. I find scientific theory really interesting, but do find reading serious books on the subject to be a daunting prospect... much as I want to learn more about atomic particle theory I get to a point where it...

Marjorie Daw is a librarian, and takes her job - and indeed the truth of words - very seriously. She doesn't know it...
