List of Book Reviews

There are reviews on the internet of just about every book published, certainly all of those below. What I try to do is to relate them to my own experiences and explain why they are significant to me. So these are personal reviews and person ratings. They are indexed in this blog under the label book reviews and also linked from below.

Key to ratings: 5*** wonderful and hope to read again, 5* wonderful, 4* enjoyed it a lot and would recommend, 3* enjoyable/interesting, 2* didn't enjoy, 1* gave up.
