3.0 out of 5 stars A hard way to learn., 27 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was quite disappointed with the very high numbers of text, grammatical and spelling errors, not caused by US language differences,rather a poor standard of proof reading by the ebook publisher. This detracted from the read.
It is very difficult to make the transition to life in France, in particular to cope with their bureaucracy, and rather feudal ways. The problems encountered are well documented and make a good reference for prospective immigrants. The bottom line for anyone leaving their own land for another is to make sure that you learn the language to a competent level first.
One great joy of France is the cuisine. I'm afraid that vegetarians will miss so much.

I enjoyed learning from this specialist in watercolour painting. It is a handy reference and helps progress with this very tricky medium.

Yet another angle on the complex life of the Princess of Wales. It is not 'kiss and tell', rather an account of life as seen by a close member of her necessary circle. I learned nothing new but it was worth the read as I still have fond memories of this troubled woman who entered a very different life when she married into the Royal Family.

Another cracking read from Peter Robinson. Banks is returned to his youth when he becomes involved in the investigation of two missing boys, one body that of his school chum Graham and the other of the stepson of a local celebrity. Many issues are covered in this novel; police corruption, the influence of London gangsters and pressures imposed by the job of policing to name a few.

In A Dry Season (Inspector Banks Book 10)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dried out, 26 Aug. 2015

Peter Robinson's books are compulsive reading for me. The stories hold the readers interest throughout and 'In a dry Season' was no exception. The scenario was familiar to me: events that happened years ago when our water reservoirs were being constructed and the crime that was discovered formed a historical link back to WW2. I liked the theme of this novel and enjoyed the way that Banks conducted himself.


Aftermath (Inspector Banks Book 12)
Aftermath (Inspector Banks Book 12)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Seral killing, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent read. This book covered the subject of serial killing and was a clever insight into the complex process of discovering truth. It also showed the pressure facing police detectives as responsibility and accountability comes with promotion. It showed considerable understanding of the criminal mind and that of a committed policeman.


Dry Bones That Dream (Inspector Banks Book 7)
Dry Bones That Dream (Inspector Banks Book 7)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Pressures, 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good read that shows what pressures are placed on a Police Officer's life outside the Force. The long hours, deep personal involvement in a case and pressure from above is not conducive to a stable home-life and relationships. This comes over very clearly. I look forward to the next volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is not cricket., 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bastille Day (Kindle Edition)
A very amusing book about a 'True Brit' totally out of his comfort zone in La Belle France. There must be so many people that have made the move without knowing how difficult the change of culture really is. Not having the language is perhaps tolerable for a week abroad but for permanent living it is unimaginable. A good read.
