The Beatles – Yellow Submarine | Review

Title: Yellow Submarine

Author: The Beatles

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 128

Rating: 4.5/5

I thought this book was excellent, but then I guess I’m a little biased because I’m a Beatles fan. It also helped that it was a first edition printing and so it had all of those old school vibes, including a newspaper clipping from the time that I guess someone used as a bookmark. Although it’s not as though you actually need one because you can read the whole thing in one sitting.

One of the best things about this is the visuals. It looks beautiful and is printed in full colour with all of the psychedelic style that we know and love from the movie. Definitely one worth reading.

Bram Stoker – The Primrose Path | Review

Title: The Primrose Path

Author: Bram Stoker

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 130

Rating: 3.75/5

This is Bram Stoker’s first novel, and in fact it was originally published in serial form in a newspaper. I can imagine that would have been pretty sweet at the time and I would have totally been there waiting along with everyone else for the next issue. It was a cracking little read that investigated many of the same themes and issues that he looked at in Dracula.

It also included a short story called Buried Treasures which was pretty good, but it was the novella that had the most to offer, at least for me. Both of them are worth reading for sure, and I’d recommend them. Good stuff!
