Dual book reviews

A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute/Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres
Released as part of Vintage Summer Classics range, these two classic reads will transport readers to a whole new world.

The Illuminae Files by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
Parts one and two of an epic new science fiction series for young adults, these books are visual experiences as well as reads.

Mr Romanov’s Garden in the Sky by Robert Newton/The Fall by Tristan Bancks
Two Australian middle fiction reads that complement each other really, really well.

Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis/The Long Hard Road out of Hell by Marilyn Manson
Musical memoirs that pack a massive punch. Sex, drugs and rock’n’roll aplenty.
