Reading forms a big part of my writing. This will be a slow-grow page where I add reviews of some of the books I’ve enjoyed recently.
Read something brilliant and want everyone to know? Drop me a line and publish it here (300-500 words max.).
Luis Sepúlveda’s brilliant rainforest novel.
Introduction to the workings of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.
Susan Hill’s evocative depiction of the struggles of people in a Welsh mining town.
Can anyone explain the universe please? Neil deGrasse Tyson takes to the stage.
Pig Iron is a love letter to the people and landscapes of post-industrial North East England.
Iain Pear’s masterful murder mystery, set in 17th century England.
Carmen Laforet was 23 when she wrote Nada (Nothing), apparently in haste and in only a few months. It was published in 1944, five years after the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) ended.
