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.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote/Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi
The biggest selling true crime books of all time.

Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman/Tin Man by Sarah Winman
Lyrically written literary fiction which will pull at the heartstrings.

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty/A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult
My two favourite authors both released new books in 2018, and they compare quite well!
