REVIEW : DUST BY HUGH HOWEY
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you read my other reviews you’ll know that I’ve been absolutely loving this series. This book sees the conclusion to the story, and thankfully it is just as good as its predecessors (I’m still a little scarred by Allegiant*shakes fist as Veronica Roth*). I’m giving it four rather than five stars because while it does have an emotionally satisfying, and uplifting ending it did leave me feeling a little bit intellectually unsatisfied given the wealth that had built up over the series.
You REALLY need to read these books.

Review : The Walking Dead, Compendium 1 by Robert Kirkman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I was given this hefty beast to read by my Boyfriend as part of the “essential” pile of reading he collected for me. Seriously this book is so heavy.. not one for carrying around. I did watch some of the TV series but was never hugely into it and check out after season one. I’d always been curious about the comic books, as I knew there were some differences between page and screen. Firstly, I did enjoy reading this much more than I enjoyed the TV series. Mainly because most of the most annoying characters get killed off in the comics! What a relief. Secondly.. I’m not sure I get all the hype over this.. It was OK, entertaining enough but my interest really did waver as a I ploughed my way through the pages.

REVIEW : THE SANDMAN, VOL. 1: PRELUDES AND NOCTURNES BY NEIL GAIMAN
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I’d been wanting to read The Sandman for years and years and finally bought myself volume one this month! People always talk about it as one of the best comic books (or graphic novels I guess depending if you want to get snobby about it) of all time, that is literary as well as a fun read. Plus it’s Neil Gaiman!
This is the first volume so it takes a while to set up the story. Basically some shady devil-worshipping types decide to try to trap Death, but instead get the wrong member the family and trap Dream/Sandman/Morpheus (pick a name!) instead, and his has a disruptive effect on sleep across the world. The Sandman is impressed for almost a century, patiently waiting until his human captor dies of old age. Once free he is weakened and needs to regain three objects in which he had placed some of his power. One was held by John Constantine, one was taken by a demon in Hell and the Justice League of America had confiscated the third from Doctor Destiny who is locked up in Arkham Asylum. Although I know next to nothing about the DC Universe it was cool to find see it interlinked, as I really wasn’t expecting any connection.

REVIEW : SHIFT BY HUGH HOWEYMy rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
More people need to read these books! They’re so good!!I just had to get that out my system! .. Ok, so this is the second book in the Wool trilogy takes us back to the time before the Silos and the events of the first novel. I was just a gripped as with the first book, and relished learning about the people and events that lead up to the purposeful destruction of humanity. Although I missed Jules and am eager to continue her story, Dust fleshed out the world even more beyond the walls of Silos 17 and 18 and into the command centre of Silo 1.
