A powerful book of a man who has lived through years, decades and centuries. He's seen it all and is only just learning how to live. Flicking between present day and his past, I fell in love with the story of Tom Hazard, its thought provoking quotes and its reflective honesty. Matt Haig's "How to Stop Time" is getting five stars from me.
An excellent concept that couldn't quite deliver what I wanted it to. I felt as though this was a book of two parts and I'd have preferred the first to continue in a more "normal" manner. I'm giving Adrian Barnes' "Nod" 3 stars for its strange unanswered second half and perhaps, as I've heard they exist, I'm going to have a look into alternative sleep related Apocalypses.
A powerful short read which draws you in to it's dreamlike world. It's odd, but it's good. Deborah Levy's "Hot Milk" gets 4 stars from me.
