Lovereading view...

A close-knit group of friends forms at Oxford around the mercurial, charismatic figure of Mark, whose rackety trust-fund upbringing has left him as troubled and dangerously unpredictable as he is wildly promiscuous. After graduation the group fragments, each locked in his or her own suddenly adult, pedestrian world.

If you like Naomi Alderman you might also like to read books by Philip Pullman, Kathleen Tessaro and William Boyd.

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
