Book Reviews

My star rating system is unique to me and only reflects my personal views and highly likely to be different from yours.

  1. Did not finish reading.
  2. Finished the book but struggled with it and did not really enjoy .
  3. I enjoyed the book and do not regret reading it.
  4. Loved the book, would highly recommend.
  5. Made it into my lifetime favourite list which is determined by the impact it had on me at the time of reading. At another period in my life the rating could be quite different....this rating is about the impression it had on me at the time, some of these books were read 40 odd years ago.
