Going Postal (Discworld Novels)
Going Postal (Discworld Novels)
by Terry Pratchett
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 18 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pratchett has done it again, another hit no doubt. I enjoyed this book immensely.
Pratchett has hit the right mix again. Although there are only brief cameos from older characters it's nice to get some fresh characters in.
Although this is comic fantasy at it's best, it's nice to get a little intrigue into the plot, even though you'd think it wouldn't mix.
I'd recommend this book to any Pratchett fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit wary, 27 Sep 2004
I was a bit wary of reading this book because I enjoyed immensely Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels (culminating in 'Executive Orders') and I knew this book dealt with the next generation. Was pleasantly surprised! The book's not as large as 'Executive Orders' but I do hope Clancy writes a sequel with the same characters. A good thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Again, 27 Sep 2004
This review is from: The Liar (Paperback)
Recently read this book for the second time having first read it a number of years ago. Was stunned to find that I enjoyed it a lot more this time round. The genre is hard to class and I can see how the book would not appeal to everyone. However, a book well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 20 Mar 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The idea of going round London according to the Monopoly board is amusing but the book is very interesting and funny at the same time. This book is filled with totally trivial facts but set against the background of Monopoly gives them some substance.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different view, 20 Mar 2004
I have a slightly different view of this book as I went to an English Public School. The book is well defined and fairly true to life including bullying (unfortunately it happens). However, I think this play would suit younger readers (tennagers or twenties)rather than older adults as the main cahracters are all fairly young including the main teacher involved in the play.


The Lake House
The Lake House

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 20 Mar 2004
This review is from: The Lake House (Hardcover)
I liked this book but you have to read "When the Wind Blows" first otherwise a lot of the references are meaningless. I can understand a lot of Patterson fans not liking this as it is verging into the genre of Science Fiction and out of the cosy world of Alex Cross and the Women's Murder Club.
I would seriously recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good, fast-paced book but please don't read it if you want a book that is likely to happen in the real world.
A generally good book that I would class as one of Patterson's best, mainly because of the change of the loczation i.e. out of his two series of books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 20 Mar 2004
One of the best books I have read in a long time. Only the second of Fry's books I ahve read. Although I liked 'Making History' I wasn't that entused by it. However, that changed when I started reading this, I couldn't put it down. Absolutely brilliant and although I didn't particularly like the ending it seemed sort of necessary. Can't give it any less than five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 20 Mar 2004
This review is from: Eavesdropper (Paperback)
A very good book. Starts with murder and corruption. A lot more humourous than a lot of these authors' books. The unmasking of the murderer at the end is astounding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 19 Mar 2004
A good starter camera. Not too complicated and fairly easy to use especially with downloading to a computer. A number of different photo modes and a movie mode with sound which a lot of comparable cameras don't have. Unless you want to take professional pictures or blow them up really large then this camera is fine for everyday use.


The Firm
The Firm

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Grisham's Best, 19 Mar 2004
This review is from: The Firm (Mass Market Paperback)
One of Grisham's best books if not the best. Well paced, moves around convincingly and you can easily see it in your head. Speaking to American Lawyers it seems the description of working all the hours God sends isn't so far from the truth. This was the book that originally got me hooked on Grisham, love his style of writing and especailly like his non-crime books (Skipping Christmas, Bleachers, etc.) but his crime thrillers are always good.
People really remember the film but that is a poor shadow of the book, read the book first then watch the film, one of the worst adaptations I've ever seen.
A great book, read it!
