Search Reviews

Our website has thousands of reviews from around 300 individual reviewers. We are very proud of this resource. If you would like to become a reviewer all you need to do is tick the relevant box when you subscribe to the magazine.

On the following pages are book reviews from the magazine plus others we simply didn’t have space to print.

Our reviews are written by readers like you; they are predominantly members of reading groups. Because the criteria for a reading group choice often differ from those of a personal read we have asked our reviewers to rate each book on both criteria.

Use the search fields below to find reviews you are interested in.
