Explicações
ManWithAnAgenda: I had kept my list to 5, but I saw 'Promised Land' and others being thumbed down by users who had ONLY thumbed books down and not added anything. So I balanced the scales.

Explicações
summonedbyfells : A series of episodic events 'observational fiction' lacking much of a purpose, I had hoped that James Kelman would have had the last word on this depressing genre, sorry.

Explicações
thewordygecko: A stunning book about the lives of the women who were murdered by the Ripper; not the horrible murders themselves, but the women's lives, as much as the author could discover from her research. Reveals the injustices and prejudices and misogyny of the era in which they lived. Grateful to the author for giving these women some voice and making them 'real' people, without the sensationalism.
