If you are like us (and probably one of the many thousands of book lovers across the globe) and have had the misfortune of spending your hard-earned cash on an apparent "best-seller"; you will probably also have experienced the dull thud as you bang your head against the wall, thinking "Why did I listen to the reviews on the back?!" The truth is: reviews found on books are usually self-promoting, PR stunt-type hype and not necessarily a true reflection of the books' quality at all.

It is our aim to tell the truth about books, but don't for one second assume that that is synonymous with us creating a blog to 'diss' authors' work - to the contrary - our intention is to provide an honest appraisal of each and every book we read. If the book is any good - it'll get a good review. If it's awful and a tragedy to the literary world - then it won't. It's that simple.

The Book of Human Skin by Michelle Lovric

Insidious and tantalising in equal parts: The Book of Human Skin is a uniquely packaged novel coming as it does in its distinctive red covering and black tinted pages. It is not only the outward manifestation of this book that is eye-catching; the story itself captures the imagination and makes for compelling reading.
