1.0 out of 5 stars annoying editing, simplistic plot and and not credible storyline, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be called a work in progress and not a finished product. Action moves way too fast making it totally non credible. Dreadful editing (mixing of names in dialogues, convoluted descriptions and overly complicated sentences) add to feeling of overwhelming disappointment.
Author needs to extend the courtship section or shorten waiting time for mate. There is no way that sb will stare at someone for a year without a word and than go straight to bed. And what is it with not knowing your boss's name after a year of working in an office next door to his?!
Too many logical mistakes. Not worth purchase unless at least one hundred pages are added.

2.0 out of 5 stars Funny but reads a bit like a CV., 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since showing two fingers to her colleague at the House of Lords ninety years old Baroness Trumpington became a household name. I saw her on 'Have I got News for You' and fell in love with her wit and quirkiness. Her autobiography, unfortunately, although fascinating and interesting, reads like a dry CV. It would have been much better if she have had used a ghostwriter. I'm usually agains this practice but in case of baroness Trumpington it's a real shame she didn't. Her life story needs much more than just facts but also some colour, background and just a bit of, eeee... life?


Mayflower:The Voyage from Hell (Kindle Single)
Mayflower:The Voyage from Hell (Kindle Single)
Price: 1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, to the point and informative. what do you want more?, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It might be on the short side but this book is full of interesting facts, anecdotes and descriptions of times and adventures of Mayflower's passengers. It debunks some myths and confirms others. My only problem was lack of clarity when Pilgrims and Founding Fathers were defined. From that moment on it took me some fourth pages to finally get about whom am I reading. Some editing badly needed but that's it. Rest was pure pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh man, what a read! And it comes from a blonde detesting F1., 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Light tone, brilliant commentary and memorable quotes, mixed together with an enormous knowledge make this book a must for anyone. It allowed me to understand why some people are fascinated by F1. I still don't like it, feel it's boring (opinion shared by many fans) and over-hyped. But now at least I understand why. I found myself laughing a lot while reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life used to be simple if you knew right people. And then Kim Philby changed everything. Or did he?, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A son of a brilliant family, product of his times and his circle. Educated in right schools, in a right way and by, and with, right people. His whole life spent on making friends, meeting people, learning and passing his knowledge. To an enemy.
This book is not only about Kim Philby as a man and a spy. It is about his friends and friendships. About the times and society. About the right way and how people were expected to fulfil their roles. And how it all went pear-shaped because of one rotten apple.
This book is an amazingly enjoyable read. At times, words used are unfamiliar, outdated, from a different era. It suits the narration extremely well only adding to enjoyment. You are left looking for answers (God bless Kindle's in build dictionary) and know very well how puzzling it must have been for Kilby's friends to find theirs. Is it accidental or premeditated? Who cares! It suits the book to perfection.


The Fatal Eggs

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant inventor, brilliant invention, brilliantly bloody consequences!, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fatal Eggs (Kindle Edition)
If you've never read anything by Bulgakov try this one for starters. It's short, witty, simple but poignant. One-day (or in my case one-night) read. Even if, by the beginning of the end you know what went wrong, you still love it and laugh a lot. Leaving aside political background, satirical sub current ignored, it is a bloody good story (loads of blood). And it's almost hundred years old. Once you'll finish it, you'll buy Master and Margarita. Believe me.

5.0 out of 5 stars story of hope and humanity, 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This story should be read by everybody everywhere. It is about people doing for other people everything possible in times when hope seemed to have died. It is hard to believe in. It makes you want to cry from joy. It makes you laugh. It makes you think. And it makes you ponder: how the hell, in the era of computers, Facebook, Twitter and all that crap, I have never heard of it before?


Master and Inquisitor [Masters of Submission 4] (Siren Publishing Everlasting Classic)
Master and Inquisitor [Masters of Submission 4] (Siren Publishing Everlasting Classic)
Price: 2.05

2.0 out of 5 stars Slightly predictable and feels undercooked. But not tragic., 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm afraid that the idea of lying to a Dom and than getting punished for it requires a bit more of depth that this story. Concept is simple, plot slightly simplistic and partially unbelievable. And the Inquisitor? Description lacks in depth and questioning is too short to be believable. Not severe enough.

Maid To Order - full length erotic novel (Xcite Xtrm Book 4)
Price: 1.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Too fast, too blunt and no finesse., 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bratty girl sent by her stepmother to a hotel doubling as an upmarket brothel. You can sum the whole story in this one sentence. Loads of spanking, sex and, honestly, vulgarity. Author skips from one bit of the story to the other without too much respect for the main heroine and the reader.
