1.0 out of 5 stars Stereotypical Clap-trap!, 27 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swan Song (Kindle Edition)
I honestly can't remember the last time i had to stop reading a book within the first 100 pages because it was so appallingly written. This book is full of clunky prose and such embarrassingly bad description of the main characters that i spent an hour huffing and puffing that it was so terrible.
Honestly, please don't read this, it really is that bad. If you must read an apocalyptic future story, read the Stand by Stephen King, now he really can write.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story, 5 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Cops & Robbers (Kindle Edition)
I wasn't quite sure of what was going on at first as it is set both in the past and the present, however, it all comes together perfectly at the end.
A really good read that gives the non-South African a good feel of what it must be like to live in a country that in many ways is definitely 1st world, but in others (corruption, political violence) is definitely 3rd.

1.0 out of 5 stars He Scowled.... again and again.............and again!, 5 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I forgot just how terrible the first one of this series was when i bought the second.... it realised my error about three lines into the book, and managed to keep going until about half-way before giving up.
This is the story of humanities 'revenge; on the alien culture that gave it such a whooping in the first book..... the writing style, language, dialogue, ideas.... in fact everything are so amateurish (read sub-GCSE), clunky and appalling that i am surprised that he has sold any copies apart to a twit like me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly appalling, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King and Maxwell (Kindle Edition)
I am new to Baldacci and was encouraged by the "bestseller" tag and many good reviews.... crikey, what are you all reading? This is complete and utter rubbish. The worst thing was the absolutely infantile plot development mechanisms.... basically make-up an easy way to move on. For example, S & M (ha!) are stuck with no further clues to progress Tylers issue. "i know what, lets dig up an old ex-wife, who just happens to be married to a General, and see if she can pump him for information (yeah! Really likely).
I will never buy a Baldacci again if this is the usual standard. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK if you value the hours you have left on the earth.

1.0 out of 5 stars This product stinks.... Literally stinks!, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this to go with my daughters pink guitar, and in this sense it succeeded, however the plastic smells so bad that it is impossible to use indoors. I can only imagine it was made of inferior, oil, solvent and generally bad for you materials in a sweat-shop in China.
An appalling product and i wish i'd never bought it. It is currently hanging up in a barn in the hope that the whiff will subside if exposed to the elements.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Jack Reacher, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all of the Jack Reacher books and, as others have said, One Shot is one of his worst. Combining that with a miniature "Jack" was a ghastly mistake. The whole thing about Reacher is that he's MASSIVE and tough looking, not tiny and well-groomed.
A great franchise for a movie, but get a real Reacher, there must be a Dolph Lundgren with a brain out there somewhere!

1.0 out of 5 stars Surely some mistake?, 1 Feb. 2013
I read the Emperors Gold by Robert Wilton and thought it was a cracking book. I was about to buy Treasons Tide when i noticed that its description is identical to that of Emperors Gold. Probably a mistake, but can't risk it being a canny way to recycle successful titles.... call them something different and attract a whole bunch of new readers!
