The Sunday Times
Advantages: Great value for money
Disadvantages: Almost too much reading material to get through in a week
I buy the Sunday Times every week pretty much without fail. It's the only paper I buy on a weekly basis and it lasts me the whole week. There are about ten different sections. The main paper, news review, business, sport, Ingear (latest gadgets and car news) home, travel, money, appointments as well as three magazines. The value for money is terrific, the paper is £2.20 per issue. i must admit that I rarely manage to get through the whole thing in a week which usually means a few sections are left lying around the house much to my tidy wifes delight!
The reviews are unbiased and current affairs and news are written by a mixture of regular writers and irregular contributors including excerpts from recent books.
The Culture section reviews recent books, television, music etc as well as reviews and listings for the forthcoming weeks television.
The Sports section boasts a number of well known sports writers and avoids the usual tabloid habit of making up football transfer rumours in favour of in depth reviews and analysis.
The appointments section is probably the only one I don't read as I don't think my application for Chairman of BP would be well received! Other than this minor gripe the Sunday Times is an outstanding weekly paper. I better stop now as I'm already a few sections behind on this weeks read.
Summary: A good read, recommended
