Ubik


UbikUbik by Philip K. Dick

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Just couldn’t get into it so only got to the first few chapters, so I suggest you only read if you’re a real SciFi enthusiast.

I, Alex Cross (Alex Cross, #16)I, Alex Cross by James Patterson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not read an Alex Cross novel for a while so I thought I’d continue where I left off (Alex Cross’s Trial) and read the next one on the list, “I Alex Cross”. This book is typical James Patterson in style writing but it (for me anyway) seemed to lack page turning excitement. I just felt I could put the book down and leave it for days and not miss it.
Having said that James Patterson is still a great writer and I WILL be reading the next on the list “Cross Fire”

The Rats (Rats, #1)The Rats by James Herbert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gory, Macabre, Ruthless in their determination to attack and kill and I wouldn’t like to meet one that size (ordinary size rats are bad enough). The giant black rats trawl the streets of East London looking for flesh (animal or human) to munch. This book is the first of 3 from James Herbert about rats roaming London. It’s gruesome and gross but definitely not scary I loved it and can’t wait to read the other two not to mention the other books he’s written esp the David Ash series.
I liked it and you’ll like it too.

The HobbitThe Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is incredibly well written. The imagination of J.R.R. Tolkien is probably beyond compare.
This book has everything you could want in a piece of fantasy fiction, Goblins, Dwarves, Hobbits, Dragons, a Wizard, a shape shifting man, adventure, mystery, suspense and a lonely mountain.
Read this before you read “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy to make sure you read the books in order and also get the most out of them.
oh by the way this book ain’t just for the kids.

Bridge At War


Bridge At WarBridge At War by Trevor Hopkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another really good companion book to “New Bridge to Lyndesfarne” there are also 2 more to continue the story. This book takes you back to the end of WW2 and follows the lives of 3 ex servicemen who have just been demobbed from the army. If you’re wondering about all the fuss I’m making about these books then click on the link below (it will take you to the authors website) and download these books yourself after all they are free.

WordPress Power Guide – Using WordPress to Blog Your Way to Success – Blogging Guide by Lambert Klein

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Good and Knowledgeable author, certainly knows his WordPress. This book will show you all the steps needed to make your blog a success. Just one point and I don’t want to sound pedantic but (and this isn’t just this author) all the links are U.S. sites. If he could do a reprint using U.K. sites that would be great.
All in all a really good and informative book.
