More About the Author

The basics:

Grew up in Manchester in the 70/80's then university, then a job which took me to Yorkshire where I remained. Now a reasonable age of 46.

How has life treated me?:

Fairly well I would respond. Could have done better, but done alright for a Manchester lad. Always had a job and since taking an IT consultant career in the late 1990's I've always had money to spend. Sometimes had to work hard for it, other times I was swinging the lead as my teachers used to tell me. Work has taken me on a few jollies over the years, travelling throughout Europe, US and Asia which gave me a bit more of open outlook on life.

Why Write a book?:

Some might wonder what great insight I have on the world, having faced no great whirlwind events, no traumatic upbringings. Not sure how to answer that other than to say I write what I see. Enough life exists in every doorstep of the UK for everyone to write something. I wrote what I saw from my doorstep, I wrote about the people I met and grew them into characters that I think people will enjoy. And if you are still reading and really want to know what insight I have then my book will provide the answer. Hope you enjoy it

A desperate and thrilling ride into a Britain we all dread but feel is too close to our own world for us to sleep easy in our beds. Steve Norris is a writer capable of weaving complex paradigms within a dangerous narrative. --The Book Reviewer

I really enjoyed this although a lot of it comes a bit too close for comfort. S G Norris has very cleverly interwoven the current political events facing us today and projected a nightmare vision of where we're heading. The rise of nationalistic, right wing politics explodes into violence as a tenacious researcher uncovers something dark and nasty in the political woodshed. She immediately comes under pressure to be quiet and when she won't give in, the pressure mounts and her life is is put into danger as she races against time to stop a violent explosion.

As topical as tomorrow's headlines and a compelling, taut read.

This thriller races along so fast I found myself happily entranced for hours. The terrible consequences of the protagonists actions entangles you right up to the last page. The thought of these things happening in Britain make you really sit up and pay attention to our current affairs. It all starts so simply but bit by bit you find yourself drawn into a complex new world.

Format: Kindle Edition
A Very English Revolution convinces as both a thriller and political/religious commentary in a way the Da Vinci code never quite managed successfully.

On the thriller front the author keeps the reader guessing using cleverly integrated red herrings that are both fleeting and apparently insignificant in order to repeatedly throw the reader off the scent. Politically the author's obvious knowledge of each of the areas in which the book is set ensures that the political and religious debate reflects that which takes place in such areas and not in the minds of the metropolitan elite. This brave agenda seems designed to challenge readers of both left and right wing persuasions to question both the validity of their convictions and the effect these can have on others.

This is an honest and brave first outing from SG Norris and I look forward to his next effort.

If you want a good read this summer, look no further than A Very English Revolution. A heady cocktail of politics, religion and murder, with a believable cast of villains and likeable well-rounded good guys who take us on a rollercoaster ride from London to Leeds. A tense, thought-provoking thriller exposing the danger of apathy in the face of extremism. Can't wait for the sequel!

I chose this novel on the strength of an amazon recommendation and positive customer reviews, but I will never again be using these criteria on which to base a decision. It became apparent within a paragraph or two that the prose was clunky and juvenile, but I persevered in the hope that it may be redeemed by its plot, a la Dan Brown. Sadly, there was no redemption and I only continued to the the end because I wanted to be able to write an honest review and warn other unsuspecting customers against this drivel.
The themes, ie. religion, political extremism and corruption appealed, but the plot was so unbelievable and the characters so two dimensional that I was constantly put in mind of an A level English language student. Maybe that's unkind - to the A level student, obviously. But the analogy is fair insofar as the author seems enthusiastic and over zealous in that partially informed way of one finding his political feet. And don't get me started on the dialogue...
In short, one most definitely to miss.

It's been a little while since I read this but I really enjoyed it. I normally have very little time for reading unless I'm on holiday and once I picked this up on holiday I found it very hard to put down. There are plenty of interesting characters and some very good plot twist that keep you wanting to read a little more before putting the book down and going to sleep or even leaving the flat to visit the sights of Rome!

I normally read something based a little bit more on the historic side like Bernard Cromwell but would recommend this as a good read.

This book had me hooked right from the start. How easily individuals and groups can be manipulated was frightening. Those lone voices who swim against the tide are the real heroes. Wish I was that brave myself. Do buy this book.
