The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things

4.0 out of 5 stars very readable, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Austen's life told in a series of snapshots. It may add nothing new to the bank of facts known about her life, experience and thoughts, but uses well the material available from letters and contemporary writings to reveal the Jane we all love.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A group of young men who at the outbreak of war find themselves as conscientious objectors, unwilling to become 'instruments of slaughter', and yet face conscription. Edward Marston's portrayal of the period is accurate and enlightening. His books are always a treat.

This review is from: Kinsey and Me (Kindle Edition)
I have enjoyed Sue Grafton's Kinsey series and thought it would be interesting to know more about the author. I was a little disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars a wee bit tedious, 21 July 2013

I loved the first Lestrade book, but this one didn't grab me. I found it a wee bit tedious in fact. I shall try another title though. His Mad Max books are a delight

5.0 out of 5 stars ten out of ten!, 21 July 2013

Maxwell is a star. Before the days of ebooks I went to great lengths to find the whole series, but seem to have missed this one. It is one of the earlier titles, but still very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars a contemporary of Sherlock Holmes, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First in the series and the first I have read. What joys to come! As a member of the teaching profession I am an ardent fan of M J Trow and Peter Maxwell. Now thanks to kindle I have access to Inspector Lestrade. As a historian, Trow is sure to get the period details right, and his quirky sense of humour shines through

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children)
Price: £4.17

3.0 out of 5 stars not for me, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I persevered with this book for a long time but finally abandoned it. It might appeal to some readers but was not for me. Why? I suppose I prefer life in the real world.
