The Fifth Elephant: Terry Pratchett

I have to be honest, this is not really a book review. I am too in love with Terry Pratchett’s creations to be able to offer any kind of objectivity or a proper opinion. Whilst in America I spent a lot of time trying to find a Discworld novel in thrift stores. It is something that reminds me of home and they are a comfort … Continue reading The Fifth Elephant: Terry Pratchett

When I … Continue reading The 100-Year-Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared: Jonas Jonasson

All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye: Christopher Brookmyre

This is another one of those charity shop finds. What with the stresses of writing dissertations and life in general, the brain was in need of a little rest. I have always enjoyed a sarcastic detective novel, and decided to pick this up as the blurb sounds relatively hilarious. Anything that references hard core hoovering is right up my street. Oh the irony. ‘All Fun … Continue reading All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye: Christopher Brookmyre
