Shadow of the Moon
Shadow of the Moon
Price: £9.49

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book., 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't know how many times I've read this book. I just love the story; anyone interested in the Indian Mutiny will find a different approach as the native viewpoint is given as much emphasis as that of the British, who precipitated the mutiny by their disregard for Indian customs, religion & culture. The love story is sensitively handled throughout, the bad eggs get their just desserts & the good chap gets the girl eventually. Very satisfactory all round, played against the backdrop of the mutiny.

Fantastic book. Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoy reading the Vespasian books, they're factual and full of action as well as being interesting and entertaining. What's not to like? Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish., 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have learnt a lesson here - don't trust reviews. I bought all three of this series, & they're all exactly the same. The women have a troubled past & the men are commitment-phobes with broad shoulders & rock-hard thighs, but apart from that the stories are boring & predictable & I won't be reading them again. Waste of time & money, even at £2.99 each. Not recommended.

More wide shoulders & rock-hard thighs, but we seem to have a pattern developing, and not in a good way. Oh dear.

I was so bored after the fifth mention of Jackson's broad shoulders & rock-hard thighs that my brain went into ignore mode. Not interesting & very predictable. Unfortunately I've already bought the other two in this series so I'll read them for comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 12 Dec. 2015

Bill's adventures on the Appalachian trail are compulsive reading. I can't imagine why anyone would put themselves through such an ordeal, but thoroughly enjoyed his and Katz's adventures in the woods. Great book. Recommended.


The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island
The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars More classic Bryson., 27 Nov. 2015

This book is a hoot from start to finish, but is let down by the unnecessary and constant use of the f-word. Surely he wasn't so poorly educated that he can't think of another word to use, or does he think that he gains street cred with his younger readers? Whichever, I'm not impressed, but having said that, the book is truly funny, hence the 4 stars.

This review is from: My Life in France (Kindle Edition)
This lovely book, written by someone who truly loves food, is a masterpiece of wonderful creative cookery. Anyone who has read a cookbook, hoping for inspiration for supper, will appreciate the dedication of this woman who arrived in France a novice & went on to become a most respected champion of French Cuisine. An inspirational book in every way. Recommended.

This review is from: Not Quite Nice (Kindle Edition)
This book is rubbish. The characters are stereotypes, the plot lines very predictable & the token smattering of the f-word completely unnecessary. Not one I'll be reading again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A novel of love and loss., 4 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many young women made the decision to travel to the Middle & Far East to find husbands amongst the British men working overseas. Gwen & Laurence are happy, but the birth of twins shakes their marriage to the core when past unhappiness is allowed to fester & truths are concealed. This book is interesting but unfortunately the final denouement is a bit predictable. I enjoyed it though, & will probably read it again sometime.
