Stephen King is a master at making the reader care about his characters. I have been reading King for 40 years. His stories seldom disappoint. Elevation is no exception. The empathy and humanity he infuses into his characters in breathtaking. Lovely to hear it from your voice too, Steve. A cracker.

A book to change lives.

There are times and things in life that can change you. Change the way you think, even the way you see the world. This book is one of those. Leigh has masterfully held some of life's heart sink issues up to a soft and compassionate light, making them easier to examine.

A Refreshing Read

This title is a breath of fresh air, brilliantly performed and delightfully written. What a revelation, we are responsible for how we experience the ups and downs of life.

From Caesar to Severus, from Brutus to Bootikins. Mary Beard has gently scraped away the lustre to show the reality of Rome. SPQR, indeed.

Should be compulsory.

This, easy to digest, enjoyable and entertaining book should be compulsory reading in every household. Read with good humour and a wry tone, we get to feel Bryson's reason for writing this so acutely. So good.
