Quick review Equations

The Sixties (Big Ideas)   
 Sex+ Drugs+Rock n Roll =the 60's
This is a memoir written by Jenny Diski, who was a young carefree youth enjoying the Swinging Sixties. I've always had a fascination for that era! I don't usually read "serious" books like Biographies, Autobiographies or memoirs of any sort but this was an exception. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would totally recommend this if your into History and the Swinging sixties.

  The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency  
Mama Ramotswe+ the Kalhari+ bizzare cases+ white van+ inherited money= The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency
This was a recommended to me by my friend's mum! It was a fun read written in fairly simple diction, it almost seemed patronizing.It had a lot of hidden parable type messages with most of the cases based on moral (subtly). I took a long time to finish it because it was a slow read, nothing gripping about..it was like a leisure walk. Read it of your into African fiction and are looking for a breezy read, one with minimal exertions.

Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception (Artemis Fowl, #4)

  The Afghan

This recommended to me by my Blogger buddy- Halinor. It was an okay read with an okay plot and an okay setting. It had the typical thriller and i-am-smarter-than-you-suspicious air to it! The story was good enough to engage me! A recommendation if your into the Al Queda and undercover missions!

Mysterious plague+4 scientist encaged in an underground facility+ scientific jargon+ suspicious and secretive government activity= the Andromeda Strain
I like science related fiction. I find it quite fascinating with all the explanations. I don't love it by I like reading them occasionally. I always make it a point to read a Crichton once in a while. This was thrilling and actually quite exciting. The discovery and plot development was slow but had suspense and thrilled me! 
For
Being a Crichton-1 science explanation-1 Suspense and Thrill-1

The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet

Sequel to P&P+ free thinking Mary Bennet+ "revolutionary" Mr Angus+ Highway men+Mr Darcy= The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet.
The fact that it was a sequel (and always sat in the same place on the library shelf every time I went) made me pick this one up! It was a sore disappointment. It totally thrashed Pride and Prejudice and all its characters and all that trouble Jane Austen put into it! The idea that Mary gets a life is all very well but there was no need to thrash Mr Darcy and the rest of the Bennet family. The book made me detest P&P for a while and  made me cross. The story had an irrelevant addition of "adventure" which made the book so much more sillier!
I am not to sure of whether I would recommend it all, but after this review if your curious to judge for yourself then go ahead!
(no fingers for being a disappointment)
but the digit for
Being a sequel and giving Mary a lover- 1
