OK, so in and amongst our foolish vagaries there’s a little semi-excitement in the news that Rich Fulcher has been commissioned to lead the way on a Channel 4 pilot for a new comedy show called That’s Rich set in a little porno shop in London. Our blank eyed confusion relates to the fact that(…)

The Girl On The Train, by Paula Hawkins review

The Girl On The Train, by Paula Hawkins review

If we had to boil our review of Paula Hawkins’ debut novel, The Girl On The Train to a short and to the point directive to readers, it would just be something along the lines of, “just read it for yourself”, because it’s a brilliantly tense suspense thriller that you’re better off knowing as little(…)

The Miniaturist review – Jessie Burton falls short of debut novel class

With a lot of media attention and both the Specsaver and Waterstones Book Of The Year awards under its belt, we were hoping for a masterpiece of modern day historical fiction in Jessie Burton’s debut novel, The Miniaturist, but it misses the mark a little in its attempt to cover too many big subject areas.(…)

Little Saw review

Little Saw review

Addictive platform games have been a bit on the few and far between side in terms of mobile gaming apps, so when you stumble across an indie title like Little Saw, you can’t help but be excited about the prospect.
