Rosemary J Kind writes because she has to. You could take almost anything away from her except her pen and paper. Failing to stop after the book that everyone has in them, she has gone on to publish books in both non-fiction and fiction, the latter including novels, humour, short stories and poetry. She also regularly produces magazine articles in a number of areas and writes regularly for the dog press.

As a child she was desolate when at the age of 10 her then teacher would not believe that her poem based on ‘Stig in the Dump’ was her own work and she stopped writing poetry for several years as a result.

As with the first one - this is no Hunger Games. It lakes imperative drive. It has less of the originality. Overall I was disappointed. I do plan to read the rest of the series but for analytical comparison rather than I feel the need to pick up the ...more

Wrapped Up in You by Carole Matthews

Suspend what you normally find believable and sink into the story and you will thoroughly enjoy it. Without that suspension it feels a little far-fetched. It's a great escapist story with some nice touches.

This is no Hunger Games. Of course there are parallels but this is nowhere near the standard of the Hunger Games trilogy. The weakness for the opening of this is that it lacks a premise to give the book enough drive. It is possible that what they are ...more

This is a good story without being as well written as the original series. In some ways the writing style in trying to imitate the originals felt a little forced and certainly lacked the natural gift they demonstrated. That said, in the way of Dan Br ...more

I would cite this as an example of what can go wrong in writing fantasy. To make a story work set in another world, or in this case set on Earth from the point of view of an alien, the story has to be believable. That's true of any type of fantasy. W ...more
