Series Review – Tokyo Ghoul Manga

Volume_01I rather enjoyed reading through this manga series. Bear in mind it’s not for everyone with it’s gore warning. The twists and turns in the story kept me entertained for my travels home. It ended completely differently to how I expected but left it open for a sequel which is currently in the works with 4 books already published.

Book Review – A Simple Favour

40900185A full cast audiobook and quite enjoyable. However most of the characters irritated me so much that I was grumbling at them as I drove the car and listened. You will feel like slapping them all at some point – Be warned. The story did follow a number of well worn paths but still managed to be an engaging read. You may well be surprised at the ending – and not necessarily in the way you expected.

Book Review – Neil Gaiman – Norse Mythology

51C7IGsOYHL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_Neil Gamian’s retelling of the dark and violent world of the Norse gods – the ultimate dysfunctional family. Norse Mythology trims down the complicated mess of stories that makes up the Norse lore into a very readable digest that covers the main story lines without having to read across many different authors and retells them in Gaiman’s grim and witty style. 5/5 stars.
