Stephen Fry- Mythos I'm ashamed to say that I never knew much about Greek mythology until now. It never interested me, and I probably wouldn't have bought the book if Stephen Fry wasn't the author. But I have to say that I absolutely loved it. It's ...

I've just finished this book and I cannot begin to describe the amount of respect and admiration I have for the author, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. "Infidel" is an autobiography, and a testament of how resillient and a strong a woman can be. I have always ...
