Product Description

Product Description

In the near-future, life in the north of England is a daily struggle for existence. Young musician, Josh Williams’ only hope of escape is nationwide TV show, The Talent. At the auditions, he is thrown together with Holly Porter, a troubled young girl with a truly amazing voice. They team up as duo One Plus One, and begin the long process of fighting their way through the various heats, hoping to reach the grand final, where fame and fortune beckon. But in this corrupt world, even The Talent does not offer the level playing field they were led to expect…

5.0 out of 5 stars The Talent 31 Jan 2012
By jsimms
A very entertaining read, which will leave me watching such shows in a whole new light! As a great believer in karma, I particularly enjoyed certain characters receiving just what they deserved!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chillingly Plausible 30 Jan 2012
Whilst this story is set in the future, part of it's strength is how it relates to the current situation. The plot is plausible and moves at a good pace with the twists and turns keeping the reader interested. Well worth a quid and a half of anyones money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book and a bargain on Kindle 29 Jan 2012
A great story that'll be enjoyed by all young X Factor fans. Philip Caveney imagines a sinister world beneath the TV glitz and glamour and it's a lot of fun sharing his peek behind the curtain. The Talent has all the fun and adventure Caveney fans have come to expect, and at a bargain price on Kindle. What's not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read 29 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
This was a book i didn't want to ut down. I started reading it and carried on and on reading until I realised it was 2am so had to inish it the next day. I liked the plot because it linked 2 areas of life now - tv talent shows and the recession - and moved it a bit forward in time. The characters were very 'real. This is a very well written book and I would recommend buying and reading it

4.0 out of 5 stars Original 19 Feb 2013

Is a very good idea for the book, I did enjoy it. I thought it shouldn't have swearing in as it was advertised as a children's book! Without the swearing would have recommended to a lot of people.
