Book Reviews (Fiction and Non-Fiction)

Impulse Gamer is not just about gaming, movies and technology because our team also love to read! However nothing beats sitting down with your favourite with a good old fashioned book (Definition: a written or printed work consisting of pages glued or sewn together along one side and bound in covers) for a reading binge sessions. Sure there are e-books but they’re not the same! Our book reviews consist of both fiction and non-fiction but we prefer fiction!
