4.0 out of 5 stars The days grow short., 25 Mar. 2015

This review is from: September (Kindle Edition)
Another unputdownable book from Rosamund Pilcher. It's a lovely story, drawing you in until you feel part of the family, but her little peculiarities of writing tend to annoy after a while, hence only 4 stars. Perhaps I'll leave a long gap before I read any more of her books.

If the author had resisted the urge to insert at least one expletive on every page this would have had five stars. The story is great, appealing to everyone's urge to sell up & move to a villa with a beautiful view in a sunny land, but the unnecessary language spoiled it for me. Shame.

I have read this book many times, it's one of my favourites. The story is so interesting & the parallel stories switching between ancient & modern times are written in Wilbur Smith's inimitable style. Unputdownable. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best book I've ever read., 5 Mar. 2015

Superficial, poor language & characters making speeches to each other. Not for the serious follower of Roman or Jewish history. Not recommended.

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.


Pompeii

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.
