5-word Reviews from 2008's books

Here are some of the 5-word reviews we prepared for our 2008 Xmas do - drafted way back then but forgot to publish it!

Great expectations

  • This classic fufills them all
  • All that and plenty more
  • And they are certainly fulfilled

On Chesil Beach

  • Poignantly observed young sex foundering
  • Gritty and isolated, cold book

The diving bell and the butterfly

  • A blink says it all
  • Be moved by his immobility

The book thief

  • Let it steal your heart

Breath

  • Take one, you'll need it
  • Surprisingly good read, not frothy
  • But we are left breathless
