Welcome to the Slating Review. This site hopes to offer you some good (if slightly biased) advice on what books are “good for you”. I will review whatever I’m reading at the moment and what intrigues me enough to think it worthwhile. This will probably be Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Thriller, General Literature or even the odd Classic, basically anything that catches my fancy. As I prefer to read paperback and buy in “3 for 2” sales, the reviews will rarely cover the latest New York Times bestseller. Which is why I want to give you a bit more for your buck. In addition to a general review I will try to provide some in-depth analysis of the book without getting all literary on you. If this analysis contains spoilers of one sort or another I will flag them with a big warning sign:


Spoiler Alarm

Is that clear enough for you?

Spoiler Alarm

Whether you get a review over the RSS feed or the main blog site, you won’t see the spoiler section unless you click on the “Read on …” link.

If one of my reviews gets you interested enough to want and go buy the book, do something good and visit your local independent book store. If you’re in the States, you can find the one nearest to you via BookSense. If you’re in the UK and you really want to buy it from Amazon, do so by clicking on the title of the reviewed book and you might just make me the fraction of a buck.
