Review: End of Watch

End of Watch
End of Watch by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A return to form and writing from Stephen King that we’ve come to expect. I enjoyed the first two books in the series (King is an excellent story teller) but both books were setting the scene for this book. As I always say for his books, King is an excellent story teller and he builds detailed and believable characters.

As the book unfolds you wonder how our modern world can make sense of a serial killer that kills by entering your mind and talking you into committing suicide. I thought I knew how the book would end, and despite changing my mind several times as I was reading the book I was wrong about the ending.

What more can I say about the book – it’s a Stephen King and this time he got the ending right.

Review: To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Somehow I’d managed to get into my forties without having read this book or even to have much of an idea of what it was about. I’d escaped it as a set text and it was only a special offer on Audible that made me look again.

So what did I think of the book? I have to say I loved it – I’m soppy, I’m sentimental and I have a strong sense of right/wrong and these are strong themes in the book. I loved the characters (even the names of the characters) and I thought the story telling was excellent. Having read the book I can see why it has been put in front of so many GCSE students.

All I can suggest is that you read the book for yourself and see what you have been missing 🙂
