  • 500 expertly potted plots and personal comments on a wide range of pop and proper prose fiction.

    The Times
  • Generous, enjoyable and well informed.

  • A dazzling array of genres, periods, styles and tastes… chatty, insightful, unprejudiced (but not uncritical) and wise.

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Anyone hooked on fiction should be warned: this book will feed your addiction.

    Mail on Sunday
  • A glorious selection of books to tempt you - all considered in witty and elegant prose. Highly recommended.
