Hello again fledglings!
It’s Sarah here, bringing you my review of Max Brooks’ World War Z. I realise that Rose may well feel as if I’m encroaching on her sci-fi, apocalyptic territory here, but this was one of the books I have to read for my third year at university and it’s the most fresh in my mind of all the books I’ve read recently so I’m going to do it anyway!
I’m going to start off by saying that this is going to be a very mixed review indeed. Let’s just say, the high hopes I had for this book were certainly not met… World War Z? More like World War Zzz! Continue reading “World War Z by Max Brooks”
Hello Fledglings; long time no see!
Once again, it has been too long since I posted a review, but I have university assessments to blame for that. However, now that I have finished my second year, you have me to yourselves for the entire summer! Furthermore, I have returned in style, bringing you my review of the absolute smash hit, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I’m going to try and keep spoilers to a minimum, and so some parts may seem a little complex to someone who has not read it, but you know the way to solve that, don’t you? Continue reading “Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell”
Hello my lovelies! Long time no see!
This sheepish little owl has been rather lacking in the review department recently, and has been rescued by Kate who, despite being on a completely different continent and bossing it over in America, still manages to be more efficient than the owls that haven’t flown the nest! But my time has come, and as promised, I bring you my review of Ismail Kadare’s The Fall of the Stone City. Continue reading “The Fall of the Stone City by Ismail Kadare”
Hello again my lovelies! It’s your favourite owl here, i.e. Sarah!
It feels like an absolute age since I last did a review so I’m eager to get back into it! I was planning on bringing you my review of Ismail Kadare’s The Fall of the Stone City this week but due to certain circumstances, I didn’t manage to read it in time. I shall bring you that next time around, and in the meantime you can be satiated with my review of Penelope Fitzgerald’s most famous novel, The Blue Flower! As you will soon find out, I highly question how it got to that status in the first place, but I digress… Continue reading “The Blue Flower by Penelope Fitzgerald”
This week I am bringing you my review of what can only be described as a bizarre romance – Yasunari Kawabata’s Snow Country, an apt title for the current season methinks! Continue reading “Snow Country by Yasunari Kawabata”
Hello there my little fledglings! I hope you’re all keeping well and having the most wonderful Christmas! This week it’s my turn, and also my pleasure to bring you my review of Colleen Hoover’s Maybe Someday! Just to put it out there, this review will contain spoilers… I tried to do it without them but as my fellow owls know, that failed miserably! Continue reading “Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover”
It’s Sarah here bringing you my review of the highly anticipated and controversial Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee, the sequel (or is that prequel?) to her legendary novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, which was (and still is) arguably one of the landmark novels of American history and an undisputed modern classic. So having heard about its sequel being discovered and released earlier on in the year, I was so pleased to finally get around to reading it, and it certainly lived up to expectations. Continue reading “Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee”
