My Name is O by Sam Enthoven

O has two tasks tonight. The first is to break into the Bank of England. Easy. Well, easy compared to the second - to challenge the shadowy presences who rule the world.

A clever sci-fi novel with a twist from The Black Tattoo author Sam Enthoven.


Praise for The Black Tattoo:

'[Enthoven is] clearly loving telling this story - there are some pleasing twists - and his energy creeps into the words on every page.' - Philip Ardagh in The Guardian

'For his first time out, Enthoven has crafted a fast-paced page turner that reads very much like watching a movie. The balance of fantasy/horror/action is just right. Think The Golden Compass meets The Matrix. An odd combination, no doubt, but Enthoven makes it believable and likable.'

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
