The Unit: A Vengeance Man Thriller

5.0 out of 5 stars A very old book I have read before but I thoroughly enjoyed it - again., 8 Jun 2014

Written more than a century ago and set in the fictional Ruritania Anthony Hope invented and which gave its name to a whole genre of fiction. This is the sequel to 'The Prisoner of Zenda'. I think I like it because I recall the 1950s film of 'The Prisoner of Zenda' which is probably my favourite film. James Mason played Rupert and was an excellent villain.


Fallen From the Train
Fallen From the Train
Price: 0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing backdrop to the story. I enjoyed it., 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a short story told from the viewpoint of a teenager living in the countryside of Britain but not a Britain as we know it. Town and country are entirely separate in what appears to be a distopic world. A railway line runs through the area but the trains do not stop as they rush from one city area to another. Our narrator finds a young man who appears to have fallen from a train. The reaction of the narrator's father to the injured boy and the subsequent intention of him and his cronies to do the stranger harm point to a darker side to this country idill. The narrator helps the stranger and his female companion escape on another train and this opens the way for further stories as the narrator clearly wants to explore the wider world. Well worth a read and I will certainly read other stories set in this same world.

Provides pictures as well as sound and gives a good image even in the dark. The tilt and zoom aspect allow one to follow a 2 year old who is out of bed without furtherer disturbing them by entering the room on every occasion. Really useful piece of kit.

This is an excellent piece of kit. It provides sound and pictures and can be moved and focused without the necessity of always going into the room and disturbing the child. Recommended without reservation.


Farthing (Small Change Trilogy 1)
Farthing (Small Change Trilogy 1)
Price: 0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. I do enjoy counter factual books and this is a good one., 26 Feb 2014

I came across this book by chance. I do enjoy What if? books and this one assumes an aristocratic party made peace with Nazi Germany in 1941. The story is set in 1949 at a weekend house party at the home of one of the leading lights of the aristocratic party when another of the group is murdered. In one sense it is a traditional who dunnit with a detective from Scotland Yard sent to investigate and who gradually uncovers what has occurred. However, it is also set against what is revealed as the machinations of the rather sinister fascist state Britain has become and I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it as a jolly good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'What if?' book, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book supposes WWII ended with a negotiated peace in 1943 leaving the Germans masters of Europe and that they also won the war in the east against the Soviet Union whilst America stayed out of the fighting altogether. The story is set in 1950 and the Germans launch a surprise invasion against Britain initially succeeding in severely damaging the Royal Navy ships in home waters and then landing large numbers of troops ashore both by sea and air. The story is told from several viewpoints, British as well as German, and has plenty of military action woven into the drama. Well worth a read.
