Review: Books of Blood: Volume 1

Books of Blood: Volume 1 Books of Blood: Volume 1 by Clive Barker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've tried reading Barker a couple of times and given up. MISTER B GONE and SCARLET GOSPELS are two that spring to mind.
Now I know that Barker has some hardcore fans and they're always shocked when I say I haven't liked anything I've read.When I tell them the titles I tried they are never surprised. It appears I picked two of his weakest....
Anyway, the one recommendation that always comes up is BOOKS OF BLOOD.I had a voucher for a free audiobook so thought I'd give this one a go. SOOOO happy I did! This is the Barker I always hoped to find when I read his work. The guy that I know created Hellraiser and Candyman! I really, really enjoyed it. Some stories more than others, but that's normal.
End result anyway is, I will definitely be trying out more Barker.

Review: Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom Animal Kingdom by Iain Rob Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very, very good!
Really enjoyed this book. I listened to the audioversion of it. The narration was great.
The story itself was awesome, such a great concept. I love Iain's writing, it just seems to flow and makes for very enjoyable reading.
Can definitely recommend this to pretty much anyone. It draws you in pretty much straight away and the character development is done so well that you find yourself detesting some while rooting for others.
Check it out.
