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.

Jaroslavas Melnikas – The Last Day | Review

Title: The Last Day

Author: Jaroslavas Melnikas

Type: Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 186

Rating 4/5



I don’t really know how to explain this one. I guess if I had to pigeonhole it, I’d call it literary fiction, but it’s also kind of like a set of short stories mixed together into one psychedelic whole. We start with a book that accurately predicts the day of people’s deaths, move on to disappearing rooms inside a family house and then eventually end up at a strange cinema that seems to have no staff.

It’s tough going and definitely not an easy read, but it’s also one of those books that compels you to keep on reading because you can’t wait to find out what happens next. And yet despite that, it’s not a plot heavy book. I don’t normally like this kind of stuff, but Melnikas nailed it. And of course, by reading this book, you’re also supporting Lithuanian literature and picking up a BBC Book of the Year award-winner, if you care about such things. Go and read it.
