Book Reviews

On this page you can find all the books that I have read and reviewed. I am only ever going to review books that I have enjoyed reading and would recommend to other people to read. I don’t really see the point in belittling or criticising another person’s work if I didn’t enjoy it, because I don’t exactly have the expertise to do that as I am not exactly a top-notch writer myself, (but here’s hoping). I have an extremely extensive collection of books in my collection and if I ever get to buy my own house, I am going to turn one room into my own personal library. I love books.

But as summer gives way to winter, and the dense fog from which the island draws its name sets in, it becomes clear that Franz rules the island with an iron fist. No phones or computers are allowed. Contact with the mainland is severed. Electric fences surround the grounds. And Sofia begins to realize how very alone she is and that no one ever leaves Fog Island…
