Staff Reviews

The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins, Crime

 photo The20Girl20on20the20Train_zpsev8ifrvm.jpg

“When you’re told that a book is the next Gone Girl you come to it with some pretty high expectations, but in this case the rumours are completely true. I bought my copy on Sunday afternoon and was two thirds of the way through by Monday morning. Hawkins keeps readers on the edge of their seat with every page and when I came to the climax of the book I was genuinely shocked at the twist she had in store for everyone. As an avid crime reader I know how rare it is to find a crime novel that is truly suspenseful these days, so I am letting everybody know they need to read The Girl on the Train!”

Assassin’s Apprentice, by Robin Hobb, Fiction

“If you have not yet picked up a Robin Hobb book and been thoroughly amazed by her timeless fantasy classics, then you should. Robin Hobb is a favourite author in my family, her series combine complex plots with amusing and intricate characters.  Assassin’s Apprentice is the first book in the Farseer Trilogy, and is an excellent induction into the world of Robin Hobb, and a dazzling journey into her mind.  If you enjoy Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, you’ll love Hobb’s classic series of novels. Enjoy your Christmas books!”
