Book Review - The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald

I have read many reviews of this book and of course, it is a classic, therefore I won't bore you with my review. That said..... I felt it a little presumptuous of the author to call his book "Great" before it was even published; after considerable research I discovered that the original title of this book was just "The Gatsby" and 'Great' was added by Miss Fitzgerald - just to sell her boo...

Book Review - Yoga For Dummies

Where oh where do I start with this review? First of all I think the writer of this book is obviously "having a laugh" at our, the readers - expense. Secondly, who on earth would buy this book? I did. I own a clothes shop, we sell suits, nice suits, but sales have been down, I didn't know if it was due to our opening hours (2.00 am - 4.00 am - Wednesdays only), my sales staff (a mute...

Book Review - Henry V by William Shakespeare

Just who is the secretive Henry V...what does the V stand for? Viktor, Vaughn, Vincent or even Vanessa? No, seriously, I know that V means 5 in French or some other 'silly' language. So, my real question about this book is...what happened to parts 1,2,3 and 4 of this series....and will there be a sixth installment? I wish writers would not start a series of books with the fifth one....s...

Book Review - Noah's Ark by God

This book bears no resemblance to the movie starring Australian actor Russell Crowe! That said, I would be interested if Crowe, in his role as Noah, wanted to make room on his Ark for kangaroos, wallabies and Koala bears; as I saw none board the ark in the movie. As an Australian he should really have insisted. Also, and this is just an observation, did he get a massive discount at Petsm...

Book Review - Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

This is a book I simply could not put down, due entirely to the fact that I was involved in a rather unfortunate sexual bondage role play game involving 234 rolls of sticky tape. And a goat. However, once I managed to remove the goat from my apartment I did read the book. There are many words I could use to describe this book, fantastic, great, superb, remarkable, outstanding, stupendous...

This book "Hooked" me from page one, one of the only bright memories of a sad childhood plagued by bouts of bed wetting, temper tantrums and soiled underwear......I really wish Grandma hadn't moved in with us....

Book Review - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

One of my favorite books. Once I realized it was not a non-fiction book about a census study on a small French Island or a Sesame Street character with a fetish for numbers and in fact a tale of revenge, hidden identities and twists I was pleasantly surprised. If in fact anyone did compile a census of Monte Cristo, and did indeed count the residents of the small island, I am led to believe t...

Book Review - Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

This book was a little too deep for my liking. As a shallow sort of guy I was a little out of my depth. As I read it my heart sank as I plunged into a depression. I do not like to whale, and I am not fishing for compliments, but this was oceans worse than my book, Seven Leagues Under the Sea. Anyway, I hope that in the years to come Miss Verne writes other books, she is a talented write...
