Book Review: Martina Cole - The Business

Hi all, hope you're okay :) I decided to do something a bit different tonight as I have recently finished reading my latest book. I think I will review every book I read from now on, it won't happy often as it can take me a while to read a book, unless it is a really good book that I can't put down!

Overall this is a good read. Like all other Martina Cole books it covers dark subjects, drugs, prostitution, gangs - everything that I love in a good book.

The story line was a very good one, and I recommend this book.

But the downside for me is that the book seemed quite dragged out. I like a book that is straight to the point and gripping. A cliff hanger at the end of the chapters is desirable for me as otherwise I'll put the book down and not pick it back up for a while. For me even though this was a good story line it just didn't have the excitement that made me want to read it, which is why it took me about four months to read it!

I'm currently reading Stuart Cable's autobiography. I absolutely love the Stereophonics and was honestly gutted when Stuart passed away. I didn't actually know he had a book out until he passed away, and then obviously it sold out everywhere! Spencer managed to pick it up for me for Christmas, now I've finally finished the above book I can get around to reading it! I will review it when I have finished, shouldn't be too long as it is quite a small book.

What books do you recommend? I have the Millenium Trilogy waiting when I finish Stuart's.



  1. Ooh I like the idea of you doing book reviews. I have to admit this one doesn't sound like my cup of tea. Anything dark really distresses me, i'm all for the happy ending/romance novels, me. Haha wimp! Fab review! x

  2. Glad you like it :) I'll read anything me so it'll be quite varied, there will be the odd chick lit here and there! xx
