Philip Newey, Writer

All the reviews I publish here are of books I believe are worth three or more stars. If a book is, in my opinion, worth less than that I am unlikely to finish it. I generally purchase copies of the books that I review, although occasionally I may receive a pre-release copy. Note that I will also post copies of these reviews to Goodreads, and my personal blog, rounding up or down to the nearest whole star as necessary.
