Escaped From Syria

Review by Anne

The novel gives an insight into the struggles which the Syrians are facing. Not only does it explore the issues surrounding what is going on in Syria, but it further elaborates on the difficulties the refugees face when fleeing their country. I hear that the author is supporting charities in Syria. Wow. An inspirational woman! Definitely one to look out for. Full five stars from me!

It is a Heart touching book. The author has kept it simple, clear and gripping throughout the whole book, just didn't want to put it down. After reading the book it made me reflect on my own life.

Three Decades of Duty

Review by Brian

Thoroughly enjoyable and an easy read, having never served in the Army it is a refreshing angle on what the Army and particularly the Parachute Regiment get up to around the world. I laughed out loud at some of the stories, others were very amusing and some very poignant. An excellent insight into the make up of soldiers and their sense of humour. Very well done.

The Fat Man and His Toad

Review by Lynn Bradwell, Librarian, Penistone Grammar School

I have just read The Fat Man and His Toad by Wendy Gill and I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the old fashioned classics such as Jamaica Inn and Jane Eyre...It is always good to read books written by local authors and it was not a heavy read which is always an advantage.

Temptress: The Linsey Dawn McKenzie Story

Review by Kara Chapman

Extremely different to what I anticipated. I expected to be titillated but I got that and a whole lot more. Not your one dimensional tabloid read. Only a bit through, but felt compelled to review after hearing the author has been slandered below

Temptress: The Linsey Dawn McKenzie Story

Review by Terry W

Deep, dark and moving. Shows Linsey Dawn as a youngster up to an adult in a very scary industry. Author on my fave list.

Temptress: The Linsey Dawn McKenzie Story

Review by Mark T

A genuinely new approach to the tabloid biography. Mixes gutter sex, strong feminist thinking and the age old story of a girl rising to a particular kind of fame from a working class background. Engaging, challenging, torrid. Excellent work.

Temptress: The Linsey Dawn McKenzie Story

Review by Beth Mone

An interesting, insightful, illuminating and satisfactory read, which makes the reader see a NEW side to the glamour/porn industry. The writing of the clearly FEMINIST author was VERY GOOD and surpassed my expectation.

Temptress: The Linsey Dawn McKenzie Story

Review by Johnny

My new fave author. I'm also half way through Disturbia and can't work out whether it's about the author, either way I'm enjoying!

We The Great Are Misthought

Review by Gabriel

This book took me 3 and 1/2 days to read. I was hooked from the prologue. It's the continuation of one of history's most epic stories. There are characters to love and love to hate. The scenes and characters are described so well it really takes you there. It's filled with emotions and kept me on the edge of my seat. Anyone loving history, scenes filled with passion and emotions from all spectrums, with that little bit of grit should pick up this book. It would make a good movie. Can't wait to read the next one. Loved it.

Harder Yet!

Review by Gerald Watts

The book is laced throughout with amusing stories as the authors' present affectionate pen-portraits of Directing Staff and their fellow police cadets. The story has both light and shade as the two friends struggle with the rigours of training while at the same time being inexorably drawn to the forbidden temptations of the pub and the block where the females cadets are housed. The last chapters reveal how far they have developed and matured as they are faced with the very different challenges of outward bound courses and stints in a hospital A&E ward and in homes for the elderly and disabled. As the young men's training goes from boxing to bed pans, this book will leave you with an excellent ground-level view of how the modern police force was forged.
