The Accidental Father

Greg Williams - The Accidental FatherThis is feel-good lad lit of the very best kind. Successful London 30-something Alex Taylor lives the jet set life, rather empty but quite fashionable. Then out of the blue he is contacted by a lawyer who informs him that an old girlfriend has died and left him ..... a 13-year-old daughter, Caitlin.

The Accidental Father

This is feel-good lad lit of the very best kind. Successful London 30-something Alex Taylor lives the jet set life, rather empty but quite fashionable. Then out of the blue he is contacted by a lawyer who informs him that an old girlfriend has died and left him ..... a 13-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Bam! Everything changes, and Greg Williams writes quite well about the decisions Alex has to make and the way his life changes. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Read! 
(His previous novel Another Man's Life has similar themes and was also quite good.)

The First Verse

Great first novel, has everything: set in academia (Trinity), concerns a literary cult with ancient origins (the sortes). In a sense I'm glad I didn't read this in my impressionable teens, I would have been all over this angle on using books!

The Magicians

This was a very pleasant surprise. Imagine Donna Tartt rewriting Harry Potter and C.S. Lewis' Narnia books. This book might be the result. Read and be amazed.

Book of the month - May 2009

Jhumpa Lahiri - Unaccustomed Earth is our book of the month for October.

Book of the month - April 2009

David Benioff - City of Thieves is our book of the month for April.

The Lie

Or actually don't read this. Oh, I don't know. It's one of the most awful books I've ever read, it had me reeling for days. Let's pray the author is a cynical opportunist and not the astute social critic I fear he might be.
This is an American Psycho of gender relations. Not for the weak. Pitch black. No humour. No hope. You have been warned.

Book of the month - Mars 2009

Siri Hustvedt - Sorrows of an American is our book of the month for Mars.
