My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I tackled this after “little secrets” by the same author which I loved and many people seemed to like this book more. I sort of guessed the twist so I thought this one wasn’t as good but it was still pretty excellent and fast paced and hard to put down. Hillier is an excellent writer.

Another gem. In fact, I might have liked this one even more than the previous one. Monk and Robot continue their adventures as they go back into town, meeting different people. I love these books.

Professor Everywhere by Nicholas Binge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unlike anything I’ve read. Hard to even put into words what this book is about, it’s about so many different things. If you like unusual books that mix origin of words with science and a fast paced mystery, you will enjoy this insane story. I loved it.
