Book Review: The Grey Bastards (The Grey Bastards Book 1) by Jonathan French (published by Ballymalis Press)
This epic fantasy is a boisterously good read – it’s rude, sweary, has lots of crude sex references and macho male banter, women are often referred to as ‘quim’ or ‘cunny’ (or worse) and it opens in a brothel! But despite that, the (majority male) characters are believable, likable and clever, the setting is well realised and intriguing and the action-packed pace carries the plot along well, with a few surprises here and there.
Audiobook Review: Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice by Bill Browder
Audiobook Review: Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice by Bill Browder (published by Simon & Schuster)
This fascinating non-fiction book is more like a political thriller and at some points I had to remind myself that some of the unthinkable things it described actually happened in real-life. It follows the story of Bill Browder, an American financier who, due to personal reasons, was intrigued by Russia and decided to set up business there in the 90s, making a small fortune on his investments when the Soviet Union collapsed. But his success came at a cost and he managed to piss off lots of oligarchs by exposing their corrupt practices, and then cause friction all the way up the chain to Vladimir Putin.
Book Review: Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire Book 1) by Mark Lawrence (published by Harper Voyager)
Grimdark fantasy Prince of Thorns is a dark, gruesome read with an evil bastard of a main character, but I loved it! It tells of Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath who, at nine years old, witnesses the horrific murder of his mother and brother which sparks an unyielding desire to wreak bloody revenge. Jorg leaves the comfort of the castle to cut his teeth on murder, rape and brutality with a band of outlaws.
