Two Brothers, Ben Elton

It’s been too long since I last read an epic tale like this one. In fact, I don’t think I’ve read such a captivating drama since Gregory’s Wideacre trilogy had me  captive. 240 more words

Blind Faith - Ben Elton: Review

“The internet was supposed to liberate knowledge, but in fact it buried it”

While i was reading the hunger games trilogy, about two years ago i reckon, i thought that it was brilliant of Susanne Collins to make such parallels with our present world, even though it was in a very much exaggerated way. 551 more words

Dead Famous

I am reviewing the comedy novel Dead Famous by Ben Elton which is a very good novel that I bought from a car boot sale. This book is a parody of the reality tv programme Big Brother and how people will do anything for fame. 216 more words

Time and Time Again by Ben Elton

Ben Elton has a very clever and intriguing idea behind Time and Time Again. To sum up, an upcoming glitch in time which is only known to a group of Cambridge scholars, will allow somebody from 2025 the opportunity to travel back through time to 1914, where they may be able to change the future (or what we think is our history). 507 more words

Blast From The Past - Ben Elton

I’ve read a few of Ben Elton books and, although I’ve enjoyed them all, some have definitely stood out from the others. My all time favourite is ‘Gridlock’, but I’m going to have to put ‘Blast From The Past’ on the side for the better. 381 more words

"Blind Faith" by Ben Elton - depressingly plausible dystopian future-Britain in which privacy is a crime

Ben Elton has a talent for seeing past the surface of things to the reality lurking beneath. In “Dead Famous” he showed us how little reality there is in Reality TV. 303 more words
