Book Reviews.

I like reading modern fiction but I also like reading fiction of the last century, especially those with a lighthouse theme. All of the books either reviewed below or listed below have been bought in charity shops for a couple of pounds going to a good cause. The interesting fact about these novels, whether they are for adults or for children, is that they reflect the moral standards at the time and the Victorian ones can seem quite harsh but the exploits are amazing and death defying.

I list below all of those books that I have read that are either adult or childrens' fiction to do with lighthouses, or have a factual content aimed at young people. You will notice that some have the same title. That is when I first learnt that you cannot copyright a book title or film title.
