Reviews

Thought-provoking... bang up to date. YA's the Word I was soon bowled over and captivated. Mr Ripleys Enchanted Books A fast, furious and fun-packed read, the kind of book that gets youngsters raised on a diet of social networking, video games, satellite TV and the internet interested in reading again. Sci-Fi-London.com A fantastic, imaginative journey. goodreads.com Fast-paced and action-packed, Jeff Norton writes an addictive novel with a creative setting. seeitorreadit.blogspot Totally captivating. Bookbag Boys who might normally play sport or computer games rather than read will be drawn to this book with its fast-paced storyline, compelling characters and topical themes of fuel shortages, climate change and economic meltdown. Family Interest A tense, dramatic story with plenty of food for thought, packed full of action and many twists to keep you gripped to the end. Primary Times As addictive as virtually any game. Flipside Gripping. Ham & High

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.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
