5.0 out of 5 stars Read it!!, 4 Feb 2014

Other reviews tell you everything. All I want to say is that most readers will read the book and think "I'm really glad that I read that".


Arena (Roman Arena)
Arena (Roman Arena)
by Simon Scarrow
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.99

2.0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment, 26 Dec 2013
This review is from: Arena (Roman Arena) (Paperback)
Having read and enjoyed all the other books written by Simon Scarrow, I was looking forward to this new one. But what a disappointment. No real story/plotline development - just a series of bloody events which don't disguise the fact of the lack of either plot or character development. He and his co-author just seem to have dashed off the novel as quickly as possible to get it onto the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Le Carre nor Deighton ..., 23 May 2013
This review is from: The Berlin Crossing (Paperback)
.... but it doesn't try to be. Nevertheless, it is a very enjoyable read - I read it on a train journey to and from London. The struggles of an East German trying to come to terms with the changes in the country after the Wall came down and trying to understand his own origins, I found engrossing.
It's not a conventional spy story nor a love story - rather an exploration of one man's journey into those origins. very well written.


Foundation's Triumph (Second Foundation Trilogy Series)
Foundation's Triumph (Second Foundation Trilogy Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars best of the post Asimov Foundations, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read all the Asimov Foundation and Robot series and all three prequels/sequels, I think this is by far the best - the most Asimovian in the style of writing. Brin is excellent
