Divergent by Veronica Roth

5 out of 5

“Divergent is the first book of futuristic trilogy set in the world where people are divided into different groups according to their abilities and virtues. On the 16th birthday everyone  has to make the  choice what group to join. However it does become problematic for Beatrice who is Divergent. Being Divergent means to be dangerous and all divergent should be destroyed.... Exciting book, I could not put it down!” – Maria, Resource Consultant, CanMan


Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything Book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

3.5 out of 5

“Makes you look at things differently!” – Mike, Senior Resource Consultant, CanMan


Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin

3 out of 5

“The first entry of George R R Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series introduces the surprisingly believable world of Westeros, a kind of alternate-reality medieval Europe where the power struggles are coloured by the use of WMDs a few generations ago (in this case, dragons). What first appears to be a collection of clichéd fantasy tropes and character trajectories is rapidly undercut by the light and shade that is built into every character, and by the genuinely surprising twists and turns of the plot – if you've not seen the TV show beforehand, that is. The complexity of the series means that things hit the skids a little in later books, but it's worth getting involved for the page-turning ride the first few volumes represent.” – Ricky, Marketing Design Executive


Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

3.5 out of 5

“Compelling, Tense thriller!” – Jaime, Managing Consultant, Chelmsford


The Help by Kathryn Stockett

5 out of 5

“Eye opening about the American South, historically; and a captivating story the whole way through!” – Nicole, International Candidate Coordinator


The Hobbit

3 out of 5

“I was 14 when I started trying to read The Hobbit, took ages to get into.” – Hattie, Accounts Assistant


The Hunger Games

5 out of 5

“Guilty pleasure.” – Hattie, Accounts Assistant


Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A.Milne illustrated by E.H.Shepard

4 out of 5

“Childhood memories.” – Mike, Senior Resource Consultant, CanMan
