The Demon Girl

by Penelope Fletcher

"The Demon Girl" feels as if you were reading "Twilight".
It's not bad but it's just not the right book for me.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

by Jules Verne

Once you have adapt youself to the old fashioned writing and the slow story progression it's really good!

Heart of Darkness

by Joseph Conrad

Heart of Darkness is certenly one of these books where you don't get the story fully until you sleep one night over it. But what is it about?

It's the 19th century and imperialism cut Africa into pieces where a slaves live counts nothing because white men think they are far surpirior then these savage people.
And in this mess stumbles a young Adventurer not knowing that the wildernes will soon change him.

That's the summary of Heart of Darkness and I realy like the setting, but the story is written so confuse, jumps from here to there and leaves some gaps, so that it is realy difficult to understand what's going on.

Do I recoment it? Yes, it's only 100 pages.
Is it great? No.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
