Impure Blood (Captain Vernac Novels, #1)
Impure Blood (Captain Vernac Novels, #1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Captain Vernac is here to stay I hope. Loving the Jazz playing cop. The pace is frenetic with so many plots and sub plots that all come together superbly. A definite page turner.

Really enjoyed this follow up to Impure Blood. Vernac at his best. Lots of plot twists and turns and numerous threads to keep you turning the pages. Can't wait for the next Vernac novel!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a massive fan of 'Kevin' I was really disappointed by this self indulgent novel. It tried too hard, the characters didn't feel authentic. This was my choice for our book club and I felt I had to apologise for it. Not one member really enjoyed it. However I have to say that it inspired the most debate of any of our choices to date, not so much about the novel, but about the issues of inheritance that it it raises.

1.0 out of 5 stars The only book ever that I gave up on, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm sure it's very worthy, but I just could not get past McEwan's endless, pointless descriptive passages. This is literally the only book that I have started and not finished. Dull, dreary...

Great storytelling, easy to read, enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. We read this as our last book club offering and am looking forward to hearing the verdict of the rest of the group next week!

Amazing imagery, beautiful language. It moved me to tears on my train into work, embarrassingly!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fluffy chick lit, 15 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this by mistake thinking it was something else but read it anyway. Undemanding, predictable and destined for a screen rom com I'm sure, but not really my cup of tea.
