Two Caravans - Marina Lewycka - Touching and surprisingly funny given the bleak subject matter Some characters get a little lost; a few overly convenient plot coincidences
Emma: Volume 1 - Kaoru Mori - Detailed, great characters, great sense of period, great drama, great manga with a difference Basic plot nothing new and one can guess the ending from the first volume down
The Heretic Queen - Michelle Moran - Interesting, good characters, good read The historical background may put off some readers
Firmin - Sam Savage - Interesting read, something a bit different Looks like a book for kids - but isn't!

|The Crimson Petal and the White - Michel Faber||Zuckerman Unbound - Philip Roth||I Married a Communist - Philip Roth|

Keeps the reader guessing to an extent
Very confusing with plot and characters
|The Snack Thief - Andrea Camilleri|
Probably my favourite in the series so far
Still the annoying translation
|A Little Magic - Nora Roberts|
|Friday - Robert A. Heinlein|
Incredibly challenging book full of traditional and non traditional sci-fi ideas and ideals
May be a little too challenging for anyone who doesn't like their concepts challenged.
|Unlikely Stories, Mostly - Alasdair Gray|
Alasdair Gray is the advantage
|The Black Cat - Jenny Maxwell|
Unputdownable. Very clever story. Brilliant character construction.
It ends too quickly!

couldn't relate to the characters, not as high as my usual standard of reading
