    cathymoore's review: "Jason Bourne book seven shows no sign of the pace slowing done, although I found the first half took a a bit of getting into. Character development in this book, particularly of Leonid Arkadin, added some real depth. Looking forward to the next one."

  • cathymoore's review: "A remarkably good re-telling of the story of Robin Hood from the perspective of the young Alan Dale. It's certainly not all merry men in Lincoln green, but it's exciting and well paced."

    cathymoore's review: "I was warned in advance before reading this that there were some pretty unpleasant scenes. I was still shocked by the graphic violence though. And I consider myself pretty unshockable. The story itself is fairly generic, something has been dug up in the desert that indicates that world religion is built on a foundation of lies and deception and it's up to our unwitting hero, a journalist in this instance, to stop the world from finding out. If it wasn't for one or two frankly sickening scenes then I would have given this three stars for being a fairly interesting story. In honesty I only finished it out of sheer bloody mindedness."

    cathymoore's review: "All action adventure in the post-Da Vinci Code genre. This is not bad at all. Chris Bronson is a likeable hero, the premise is interesting and the big reveal towards the end was breath-taking, if a touch far-fetched."

    cathymoore's review: "Having read the first Isaac Bell book and really enjoyed it, but then given up on the second one having found it really boring, this was last chance saloon for this series. I really enjoyed it. It started off a bit slow but really picked up after the first hundred pages. Some suspension of disbelief is required as I am beginning to think Isaac Bell is utterly invincible! On the whole though, this was a nice easy read that didn't get too bogged down in the details and delivered plenty of punches per page."

    cathymoore's review: "Invincible spy/assassin Shaw returns for more "wet work" except this time he gets more than he bargained for when if turns out another team of killers for hire has targeted the same person he has. A good easy to read thriller."

    cathymoore's review: "This is a character study, set in London. Multiple characters, all very different. The story culminates at a millionaires dinner party. I found this a bit hard going in places but laugh out loud funny in others. My favourite characters were the female tube train driver, the reluctant teenage Islamic terrorist and the billionaire hedge fund manager who never laughs."

    cathymoore's review: "This is a book based on the screenplay of the film starring Jennifer Lawrence. I can see how it would make for an entertaining film. However, it lacks the depth of characterisation and plot to be a good novel. If, at fewer than 200 pages, it qualifies as a novel."
    Poppy (2012), Edition: Mti, Paperback, 208 pages

    cathymoore's review: "This is the fictional account of the life of a first division footballer from the 1970s. His rise to fame, adoration, adulation and subsequent demise via alcohol, extra-marital affairs and gambling could probably serve as a base template for any number of real-life footballers. Funny yet deeply sad in places, you may not like Billy Parks very much but you still find yourself rooting for him all the same."

    cathymoore's review: "I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this easy to read novel about a girl who works in a Waffle House, only to discover she has magical powers. The plot is a little thin and convoluted but what made it for me were the characters. Both the main protagonist and all the others were well rounded and well drawn. A real pleasure to read."

    cathymoore's review: "This is the story of Sutter, a high school senior with a drink problem. And a taking life seriously problem. His voice is reminiscent of the catcher in the rye in places. In spite of its lack of originality, for how many times will we hear the story of boy meets geeky girl, geeky girl makes boy realise he can be a better person, this is a nice telling of the story and Sutter is an interesting, if incredibly self-absorbed, protagonist."

    cathymoore's review: "Nina and Eddie search for the lost Inca city of El Dorado. On the way they blow a lot of stuff up and kill a lot of bad guys. Standard. Unusually this one has a bit of a cliff hanger ending and is also the first in the series of these funny, silly books that actually brought a tear to my eye."

    cathymoore's review: "I read a lot because I enjoy it, I guess you could call it escapism. This is not escapism. This is thought provoking fiction that stays with you long after you have put it down. It took me nearly a month to get through it but boy, I'm glad I did. The ideas and themes laid down by Steinbeck still have so much relevance today and sadly, probably will continue to for years to come."

    cathymoore's review: "Our intrepid detective M.Didius Falco is thrown into the murky world of the gladiator ring. There is the usually dry wit and wry commentary from our hero Falco and the ongoing character development which keeps this series fresh continues as we learn more about Falco's brother in law Quintus and his new business partner and ex arch enemy Anacrites. As good, if not better than those previous in the series."

    cathymoore's review: "Crime thriller featuring re-occurring character Roy Grace. These books are easy reads. They are becoming quite repetitive and it would be nice if some of the background characters were either fleshed out a bit or changed for new ones."

    cathymoore's review: "I like Gordianus the Finder. He's not as witty as my other favourite M Didius Falco but the characters are well drawn and the attention to historical detail is second to none. The addition of thorough author's notes at the end help to separate the known facts from the fictional filling in."

    cathymoore's review: "I have managed to read these books all in the wrong order. This was very readable and I enjoyed it, although some of the violence and descriptions of the murder victims is quite strong. I don't really know what I'm going to do about reading the rest of them as I wanted to read The Snowman but this book told me who did it!"

    cathymoore's review: "A nice quick read. I thought I'd figured out who did it, so it was a nice surprise at the end to find out I was wrong!"

    cathymoore's review: "I was concerned I wouldn't like this, I found Knox's first book very violent, to the point where it ruined the story. While this was still a little graphic I really liked it. The setting and the plot were both original and well written and researched,"

    cathymoore's review: "This is Gloria's story, told to us in flashbacks and glimmers of suppressed memories from her chair in her old folks home. Gloria is one of the best characters in a book that I have ever come across and her story is in turns both hilarious and heartbreaking. Highly recommended."
