Excellent sequel to Eye Contact. Well written, exciting and scary. Can't wait to read the last book of the trilogy when it comes out later this year

Twin nephews 22 months love tractors and this puzzle was a great success. Having a different colour each side is a winner

18 month old granddaughter adores Timmy Time which is her current favourite. She is only allowed to watch one episode a day and sits mesmerised for the time it's on

This review is from: The Decision (Kindle Edition)
The author had researched the time well with cultural references but the book was too long and could have been more concise

Enjoyable read of this union of cultures. Brave lady to go so far from home with a man she hardly knew! Unbelievable adventures

The author brings to life the sights and smells of Afghanistan and the continuing suffering of the people. Sobering but enthralling book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual subject matter, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked this book. The subject was very unusual but extremely interesting. Joseph Banks was a complex character and a man of his time. It is difficult for us to comprehend the social mores of the time so that his love could only be his mistress and not his wife. The end of the book was a bit unbelievable - that a stuffed bird had not only survived over 200 years but that Banks met up with its owner - but this is a small criticism of an excellent first novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly appalling, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Black Dahlia (Kindle Edition)
I thought that this book was crude, coarse, bloodthirsty and violent. I couldn't understand the slang and colloquialisms either. The men were all corrupt, racist and sexist. Horrible, horrible book and I wouldn't want to read anything else by Ellroy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable twaddle, 1 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book only because it was my Book Club choice. I found it completely unbelievable. Coster monger with local accent has daughter who speaks perfect English. Aged 13 she goes to work at the big house and makes her way to the library where she reads, amazingly, books on psychology. The lady of the big house then encourages her in her pursuits and, incredibly, supports her through university. And so it went on. This is among the worst books I have ever read.
