Amazon Adventure - Willard Price

  Published around 1970 and with an author born in 1887, these book are fairly old! Amazon adventure is packed full of all the things that should be found in a good old survival and exploration novel! Set in a time when the amazon wasn't currently explored and still full of savage natives, this book is fun to read and then lets you think on what it might have been like then to explore somewhere for the first time. For mystery lovers this is also a great book because the is quite a big one in there for you... All in all a great read recommended to be by my father as he read them when he was the same age as me.

9/10 Don't forget to comment on this book, what do you think?

Fever Crumb - Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve is highly acclaimed for his book, Mortal Engines which is a futuristic steam-punk book with moving cities and flying airships. This book is much the same however it takes place on the ground which is obviously less exciting, it also takes place in London, unlike Mortal Engines.    The book is set before Reeve's first steam-punk novel and is supposed to link to events in Mortal Engines however I can't see too many of these links and the only real one is at the end. (and it's not that great to be honest) The book seems to be quite historical because it seems as though we are in the past, but we are actually in the future which is a bit surreal and strange. Reading about carts being pulled around London and archaeologists trying to use 'old tech', things like vacuum cleaners for example is just plain weird.    The story often seems to have no real destination and somethings in the book are made out to be a bigger deal than they actually are, for example…

Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying of the Light - Derek Landy

This was a little of a disappointment in some ways, the ending chapters were a bit confusing but that didn't stop the read from being utterly compelling in every way!
  I would say that a different ending would have worked well but the starting potential of the book maybe created a sense that the read would be ore than it was...

Sophie Someone - Hayley Long

This book is very unique and is written in an unusual but fun way. It follows the story of a girl called Sophie who really wants to know what her true identity is and what her story began like. The book is written from Sophie's perspective, however, the book is written in code which makes the story extra interesting and very engaging for the reader. Working out some of the more difficult words is actually quite fun and it does make the entire reading experience more interactive and also better as a whole.
  I think that the book is very good although it can be fairly confusing to being with and at first you often ask questions that only get answered later on in the novel because unlike some books where you see the story from the outside, and therefore are privy to information before it is passed on to the main characters, you follow Sophie and get to know the facts when she does.

8 / 10 A good mysterious, unique, fun and very Belgian book. Add your thoughts in the comments if yo…
