daily newspaper
Short biography
"The Guardian has published honest and fearless journalism, free from commercial or political interference, since it was founded in 1821. We are part of the Guardian Media Group, which is owned by the Scott Trust, and exists to support our financial and editorial independence. Any profits are solely reinvested into Guardian journalism" (Guardian website).

The Manchester Guardian was founded in Manchester in the wake of the Peterloo massacre of 1819, when soldiers killed 11 people at a public meeting calling for fairer political representation. The first edition, a weekly with just four pages and costing 7d., appeared on 5 May 1821. The title was changed from the Manchester Guardian to the Guardian in 1959 to reflect the growing importance of national and international affairs in the newspaper, and in 1961 started to be printed in London rather than Manchester. The Guardian is published Monday-Saturday. The Observer newspaper (est. 1791) joined the Guardian Media Group in 1993, ensuring that the oldest Sunday newspaper in the world has continued its long-standing tradition of liberal politics and independent journalism.

This book is a good example of why I rarely put a book down before finishing it--I'm always hopeful that a book will get better... and this one did. I don't think I'll be continuing with the series, but I am glad I finished up this first book.

Ogden's characters and story are solid, and I actually really enjoyed the writing style for the most part. The problem is more one of pacing. Lots of scenes and subplots are overwritten to the extent that the book gets weighed down by them, and I think an edit aimed at cutting wordcount by 10-15% would have done the book a world of good. At the same time, what gets the most development isn't always the most interesting thread within the book--the paranormal and 'guardian' side of the book didn't get nearly enough attention and development, with so much attention being focused on family drama, teenage romance/drama, and the everyday, to the extent that the paranormal/fantastic side of things (which was the truly interesting part) consistently felt underdeveloped and pushed to the side.

I really wanted to like this book, but in the final analysis, it just doesn't feel like it was quite ready for publication. I'd give this writer another try some time in the future, but probably only if a book were published traditionally vs. self-published since the fatal flaw here seemed to be a lack of content editing.

Articles from the Guardian presenting the whole story of the phone hacking scandal. Lots of detail as to the background of the investigative reporting and the timeline.
