Review: Agnes Grey

Agnes Grey
Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a nice read but I would of liked to have given it 3.5 stars rather than 4.
It tells the story of Agnes who goes to work as a governess to some very unruly children. She is instructed to teach them but not discipline them which makes her job very difficult.

Review: Dragon's Time

Dragon's Time
Dragon's Time by Anne McCaffrey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I kind of enjoyed it, but in some ways I didn't. I found the book very fragmented in places and confusing in others.
That said, I still think it is a highly readable book.

Review: Legend

Legend by Robert Doherty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Being the 9Th in the Area 51 series, it tied up loose ends. It takes you through the lives of the central characters Donnchadh and Gwalcmai from the beginning from them leaving the own planet and arriving on Earth.

Review: Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being a literary classic and all the diverse reviews, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this book.
I found the first few chapters heavy going and then the book grew on me.
It is a very dark story full of violence and selfishness but predominately a love story.
