"The Hanging Tree - Peter Grant #6" by Ben Aaronovitch

I enjoy Peter Grant’s company. I’d read the books even if there was no other plot that following Peter around and seeing his disdainful reaction to the rich and tasteless, his fierce opposition to the abuse of power, his passion for architecture, his dismissal of history written only from the victor’s perspective and his endless appetite to know more. 364 more words

"Blue Remembered Earth - Poseidon's Children #1" by Alastair Reynolds

For me, the best thing about “Blue Remembered Earth” was the narration by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. His energy and his mastery of all kinds of interesting accents, made this long book a stimulating, if leisurely quest rather than a tediously long journey. 407 more words

5 things I liked this week - 25/11/16

  1. We went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and it was, well, fantastic! And it was such a thrill to hear those first few bars of the Harry Potter theme and the similar style opening credits, at the start of the movie.
