Soldier of Rome: Rebellion in Judea (The Great Jewish Revolt Trilogy Book 1)
Soldier of Rome: Rebellion in Judea (The Great Jewish Revolt Trilogy Book 1)
Price: £3.72

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did not enjoy this book at all. I thought it was poorly written, superficial & altogether not up to the standard of other writers of Roman history such as Robert Fabbri. The odd profanity means that it's not a children's book, but that's how it is written. Disappointing.

All Frederick Forsyth's books are action-packed and believable, & this one is no exception. Fast-paced & very interesting, unputdownable in fact. Recommended.

I've read this book several times, I just love it. The story is cleverly told with alternate chapters from TJ & Anna & works very well. Their continuing story finishes the book & leaves you wanting more. Great book. Recommended.

This book is a one-off. The great love between Debra & David is the central theme against which all manner of dreadful events are thrown, & I feel really gutted about Zulu. Unputdownable. Inspirational. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book., 15 Feb. 2015

This review is from: The Shell Seekers (Kindle Edition)
I'm not surprised that this is a bestseller. The story always keeps you wanting more, the characters are interesting even if not always likeable, but Penelope is an absolute star, the perfect mother & friend. I'm sorry to have finished this book. Unputdownable. Recommended.

This review is from: Pompeii (Kindle Edition)
To tell the story of Pompeii from the perspective of the man mending the Aqua Augusta is ingenious. No one can know how many people from Pompeii survived the great eruption of Vesuvius in AD79, but this wonderful book brings the reader right into the action. We are there, we see & feel the panic & despair. Unputdownable. Recommended.

This review is from: The Sea, The Sea (Kindle Edition)
Having bought this book I was determined to read it, but it took ages to get into & then I couldn't put it down! Once the story actually started it was very interesting, the Prehistory & end bit extremely hard work, hence the 4 stars, but I'm glad I stuck with it because the middle bit was riveting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreyfus exposed!, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't usually read books written in the present tense throughout, but after the first chapter of this book I was hooked; indeed I found it very difficult to put down. The devious machinations of his superiors ensured Dreyfus was found guilty & condemned to hideous imprisonment on Devil's Island for 4 years before Picquart started to question the evidence, only to have those same superiors use his findings against him until the truth became obvious. This makes a riveting story, Robert Harris strikes again. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A twisty-turny tale of Recency romance., 17 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Sprig Muslin (Kindle Edition)
The delightful Amanda, besotted Hildebrand, handsome & rich Sir Gareth & unappreciated Lady Hester make an entertaining & enjoyable tale of Recency life. Good fun in a light, frothy story.

4.0 out of 5 stars So interesting., 11 Jan. 2015

How many westerners know about the Bushmen, the original occupants of Africa, and their fight for the return of their traditional hunting grounds, or the effect of "civilisation" on their way of life? What a great book.
