All these and are taken from reviews of the dooyooCommunity.
|Man and Boy - Tony Parsons|
some touching moments, great writing style
hardly any storyline
|Diggers - Terry Pratchett|
Well written and funny
Nothing extraordinary, compared to the two others
|Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami|
A readable love story with a twist, sprinkled with Murakami's ace signature trademark elements - plus good translation
A little bit formulaic and grey, and ends abruptly. Not a new love venture for Murakami at all, and it's not one of his best works overall
|Dot.Homme - Jane Moore|
Fast-paced and funny
Badly-written, unlikeable, one-dimensional characters, formulaic and annoying

Another captivating story in the Caesar series
Is much better when read in the order of the series
|Down to A Sunless Sea - David Graham|
An excellent read, despite being slightly outdated, a lot of it rings true to current events.
The pilot talk sometimes gets a bit too technical.

Easy to read, a great story, nice themes.

Unusual but compelling family story.
Some people don't like the gap in the middle.

Very unusual story. Makes you think.
