The Last Days of Disco by David F. Ross

The Last Days of DiscoThe Last Days of Disco by David F. Ross

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, when you strip away the potty mouth and the political posturing, this did actually remind me of being a teenager in Scotland during the Thatcher years. Which isn’t always a good thing, but all the pain of being a music obsessed youngster longing after unsuitable women came home to roost. I enjoyed the basic story after I started to skip the political extracts. The characters are broad and could have come from any scheme, but that actually makes them all the more real. After all, stereotypes have to start somewhere. Good but not essential.

The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd

The Casebook of Victor FrankensteinThe Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was certainly an interesting take on the Frankenstein legend. It largely held the attention, although there was some unnecessary padding. The Shelley / Byron bits were especially drawn out. I’ve read some of his fiction before, but this was my first foray into his fiction. The result was a book that will keep me interested in his writing, without moving near the top of my list.
