Review: In Case You Missed It by Lindsey Kelk

This is the first time I've read anything by Lindsey Kelk and I was really pleasantly surprised. The story was quick and interesting, the characters weren't blasé or annoying - they were fun, well-rounded and didn't just talk about men. And the male interests weren't just one sided (oh what a monster, oh what a heart throb). Even better, it was genuinely funny and quirky. In all a really fun read!

Review: The Constant Rabbit by Jasper Fforde

With somewhat impeccable timing, this book could potentially be a seen as an ally to the current rising awareness of institutional (and apparent) racism. However, it is also a white man's guilt about things in which he has been complicit, if not directly involved. But above all, it is satire - whether its satire of a situation that is too fresh to be appropriate remains to be seen - and the book is fully aware that it is satirising the British phobia of all things 'other'.
