The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike Book 2)
The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars I actually enjoyed this far more than "The Cuckoo's Calling", 18 July 2014

I actually enjoyed this far more than "The Cuckoo's Calling". The character of Cormoran Strike is more developed I felt than in the previous book and he seems more masculine. Found myself wanting to read more which i didn't get with the previous book.

This review is from: Fifty-One Moves (Kindle Edition)
Bought this book after seeing the author talk about his life at an event followed by a Q&A session. It expands better in his experiences.

This book should be read by anyone thinking of into of going into Social Work and all Social workers and other staff involved in children in care.

Was nice to revisit some older characters, as well an Jake Brigance the book features Lucien Wilbanks (A Time To Kill and The Last Juror) and Willie Traynor (The Last Juror). It's advertised as a sequel but could be read as a stand-alone novel, but makes a lot more sense if you've read A Time To Kill as the case is constantly referenced.

I did enjoy this book and John Grisham's writing is as good as ever. I am sure that in the near future I will reread the book. I didn't however, anticipate the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't sure what to expect, 24 Oct 2013

I was of two minds whether to read this book. I got into Harry Potter long before it was fashionable (i.e. way befero the first film) and was aware this was JK Rowling's first attempt at a book for adults.

I wasn't disappointed, the cahracters are well-rounded in most cases and you get a feel for the characters. I enjoyed it until the very last few pages and have knocked off a star for the ending but that's personal choice I like definitive endings,

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for the price, 5 Sep 2013

Bought this as recently started to need a stick occcasionally and folding sticks are normally too short as I'm over 6'. This stick is great, no instructions but enough writing on the top of the stick to understand how it works. I can understand how some frail people might struggle with it but for those who have normal strength in their arms it shouldn't be a problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor book, 14 Jun 2013
Very disappointed with the book, no big event. The big surprise is a total anti-climax and nothing of any note really happens. This book would be an incredibly bad James Patterson to start with.

This review is from: The Crow Road [DVD] (DVD)
Still powerful even 17 years after this TV series was broadcast, quite fauthful to the book. The big plus for me (over the 2004 DVD) is the fact the this edition has subtitles for the Deaf and hard of hearing.

Ss I haven't been able to watch (and hear) my former DVD it was pleasnt to note that even though the series was broadcast 17 years ago it doesn't appear dated.

As a long-time reader of James Patterson I was very disappointed by this. Not sure why but unlike other books of his where they are read wherever I can grab a few minutes, this story did not just grab me in the same way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disjointed, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an atheist agree with most of the writer's views and know some of the arguments. Like some of his metaphors that I haven't hear before BUT some of his arguments are argued more than once e.g. the flood has been covered twice when less than 25% through the book. Needs editing and merging of the two sections. His argument against faith schools is all well and good but appears in what seems to be a random place.

The arguments are good but the book needs a good editor so it follows more as in title seems disjointed. I can see where the reviewer who only gave one star is coming from.
