I don’t do a lot of book reviews on the blog, mainly because that involves reading them and I only look at pictures. (Joke)
But I thought I’d mention Paul Kercal’s latest book ‘Dr Sylver and the Repository of the Past’. Paul gave me a copy at the Christian Resources Exhibition which I will read when I live in less frantic times. In the meantime he might have a couple of other review copies going to anyone who will review them on their sites and on Amazon. Get in touch with him via ‘wd (at) kercal.co.uk’ if you’d be interested.
So, why should you read this book? Here’s what the London School of Theology said about the first book in the series:
I made a mistake with this book: I started reading it during my lunch break at work. “Big deal,” you say, “good use of a lunch break, surely?” Not when you’re the only member of staff on duty, the shop’s closed and you’ve got to reopen it after lunch… Because this is a book which takes hold of you and won’t let you go — and whilst the publisher is billing it as teen fiction, it’s a great read for anyone: all of us were teenagers once. Make sure you’ve got a free evening – or at least someone else on standby! – when you start this book.
