Shogun: A Novel of Japan - James Clavell - Immense scope, vast and complex, brilliantly realised characters and plot Fairly liberal use of obscenities
Everyone Worth Knowing - Lauren Weisberger - An easy read with a light approach to serious issues. Leaves you at a cliffhanger, I like chick lit to be all tied up at the end.
A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters - Julian Barnes - Excellent refreshing read, a must for any literature fan ! None at all
The Nature of Monsters - Clare Clark - compelling read; well - written; gothic atmosphere none
Members Only - Leonie Fox - Entertaining to a point plots not followed through, pointless and outlandish storylines
What My Best Friend Did - Lucy Dawson - excellent story that is dark and shows the true extent of how fragile female friendships are. The main characters aren't particularly likeable, but this doesnt really detract from a fab story!!!
