Book Reviews

After all the sweat, toil and tears, my novels hit the bookshops. Hip-hip-hooray! But what doth ye merry readers think?  Will they love it or loathe it? Scroll on and see…

'...All Fall Down is an intense and thrilling ride through the highs and lows of the human experience.’

– Barry Jones. BAFTA & Rose d’Or nominated magician and author

'All Fall Down' by Jay Fortune

‘This is the debut from Jay Fortune and what a rip-roaring debut it is.

The chapters are super short, each from a different character perspective on the situation in hand. There are a lot of characters, but each is important and it’s interesting to see how their stories interlink.
If you are adverse to swearing or sexual references, this isn’t the book for you. But if you like a stunningly visual fantasy novel, with dark themes running through it, you’ll love it. It had undertones of Stephen King, although I think Fortune actually ends his novel more intelligently!
 
This isn’t just a fantasy though. There are some really serious issues interspersed within the narrative, such as child abuse, human trafficking, and murder. It wasn’t what I expected, but that’s often a good thing. A solid debut which will stay with you long after you finish it.’
  • A. Thompson, Proprietor, Chapter Two Book & Coffee Shop, Lancashire.

‘Snowlands - Zak and The Wanderer'

‘Wonderful, engaging and even a practical magic book!

It’s a children’s book and it may be the kid in me speaking but I really liked it as an adult. I admit I’m a romantic and love to make up stories and even tend to weave a lot of fantasy into my day-to-day life. It makes it a lot more interesting and fun. And maybe that’s the key to real life magic: blending imagination and reality. 

The cover art and photo illustrations are special. They’re intriguing and I’ve never really seen this type of art. The book also hides lots of magic tricks that kids (and adults :-)) can learn. There’s a section at the end of the book that explains the tricks (with illustrations; by the author)’ – G. Struijker Boudier, Amazon 5 stars.

A Netflix blockbuster waiting to happen!

‘I came across All Fall Down after my mate wouldn’t stop going on about it. As a fan of anything dystopian, this book blew my mind.

Rather than most novels of the same vein being set in some detached future wasteland, this book is set in the here and now, a London city which is engulfed by an unknown and mysterious force… It’s gripping visual and detailed language makes me believe that what is enclosed could actually happen…. Which is terrifying.

The book simmers beautifully throughout until, like a magician revealing a big ‘aha’, the ending leaves you closing the kindle and sitting in a momentary state of wonder thinking how beautifully that narrative reveals its hidden secrets and leaves you guessing towards the outcome. 

I can’t believe this is the author’s first work as it feels like a career defining novel up there with the greats. An exceptional piece of work by a very talented and masterful author!’ – C. Benson, Amazon 5 stars.
