Product Description

Product Description

Britain has broken. Anarchy and mayhem have finally become a way of life. The system has shut down and politics has imploded. Even being famous doesn’t mean as much as it once did; nowadays it’s friend vs. friend, celebrity vs. celebrity and reality vs. fiction. But even in hell, there are love stories left to tell… Meet Zach, Albie and Archie, three nobodies with something to say; the private detective on a case that threatens his own sanity, TV’s former golden girl who just wants out, and the voice of the people, now the country’s most wanted man. A trio of interconnected lives and loves recounted in reverse and wrapped around the dark mystery of a country at war with itself. Through their reflections, confessions and memories, a chillingly twisted portrait of a world, not too dissimilar to our own, is slowly revealed. Blending satire with unsettling drama and with a wicked streak of humour, Stone Bleeding is a story of worth amongst the worthless, hope amongst the hopeless and love amongst the loveless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark read but thoroughly engrossing! 26 Sep 2012
This book represents everything we fear for the society we live in and in a very realistic and comprehensible way, looks at the breakdown and fallout of that such society. I found it extremely dark and melancholy in places but that combined with the vein of humour that runs throughout the book, makes it an extremely engrossing read...I couldn't put it down!

A non stop read,! Could not put this book down, an excellently written and truly gripping read. It has been a long time since reading such thought provoking literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars This be good stuff! 9 Mar 2012
I was really looking forward to the second book having enjoyed muchly the first Silent Bombs Falling on Green Grass. I was not disappointed. This book is darkly sarcastic, laugh out loud funny and very thought provoking.

So the country has buggered itself up (which I think in this day and age probably could happen) and you meet three people who are interconnected with it all and each other. You follow their story through the anarchy and havoc which paints such a realistic picture of what the world could be and what love can do.

I liked the POV of the characters how they are personally telling you the story like you're there in that time, like your reading a diary. I also liked how you realise this is the country falling in around itself but you don't realise how bad it is until you read through the book and it gives you glimpses and situations that reveals how dire it all is. I like that each POV was a verse and how that linked in with the characters. There are so many things with this book I can't list them all down, all those little things I like make this book one of my favourites.

I'm not ashamed to say my soppy self cried at one point in this book. Its a powerful thing, I think, realising that death is better then living because of what has become of the world and the author describes this so well I was there I could see it from their reasoning and perhaps the choice made was the better one.

I have to say as I did with the last you have to read this peoples even if it's not your type of book because this isn't my type of book I'm a fantasy reader. You will be surprised at how well written and different this book is from anything you have ever read before.

Oh and one last thing.....A Lampshade?!
