BOOK REVIEW: STALLO

Secret societies, conspiracies, kidnapping and trolls, yes trolls, sure what else would you need to create a seriously literate supernatural thriller? Throw into the mix the varied and mythical landscape of Sweden and characters that are both immediately everyday and extraordinary, and you get a novel that makes you want to read at double speed just to see what happens next.


BOOK REVIEW: THE ANGEL’S GAME

The Angel’s Game is Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n’s follow up novel to the international bestseller The Shadow of The Wind (although it is meant to be a prequel). I read the latter on holiday a number of years ago and was bowled over by not just the way he drew characters and teased out a complicated plot, but also by the literary quality of the writing, even after translation from the original Spanish.
