I'm a self-published author from South Australia. My first book, Soul Fire, is a YA fantasy romance.

100 Things They Don't Want You To Know: Conspiracies, Mysteries and Unsolved Crimes

100 Things They Don't Want You To Know: Conspiracies, Mysteries and Unsolved Crimes - Daniel Smith This should've been called '100 Things They Don't Want You To Know... And I'm Not Going To Tell You Either'.

The book consists of 100 stories that are a mixture of conspiracies and mysteries. But they're only very briefly touched on, which bothers me a little. Most of the book is taken up by (very pretty) colour photographs. Most cases in the book would be about a hundred words on the subject and some pictures. Then it was on to the next one.

If this book had covered a range of about twenty-five cases, it would've been able to give each one justice. But it felt so brief that I couldn't get into it. As a fairly well read conspiracy theorist, I knew 99% of the cases in the book, and the information was old hat.

In addition, the typos in this book were so distracting and reoccurent that I'm glad I borrowed it from the library. This book felt hastily edited - the typos were glaringly obvious and should've been picked up.

Two stars, and returned to the library gladly.
