Peter James writes a very detailed and riveting plot that keeps you wondering throughout the book. He kept me thinking how he managed to put together such an intricate web of clues to reach an intense conclusion.

A 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.

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.

When you start a Murakami story you don’t really know what you are going to get. Most of his stories are set in modern Japan, and are filled with intriguing characters. These include a man in the novel ‘Kafka on the shore’ who always refers to himself in the third person, “Nakata loves eel”, and has the ability to talk to cats. Another is Tsukuru Tazaki, socially isolated and trying to work out why his school friends abandoned him many years ago. Murakami’s books are quirky, surreal and unconventional.
