1.0 out of 5 stars Worried, 4 Dec 2013
I first read this book some years ago and couldn't get my head round it. As it has such rave reviews I have just re read whilst on holiday where I could concentrate. To me it seems like a lot of nonsense. No wonder the character had been insane. So are the reviews a touch of the king's new clothes? Some reviews say that it will not suit those who want an easy read and action. I don't, and find some action books quite boring. Do these reviews smack again of king's new clothes? ie if you don't like it you must be a bit thick. I am well qualified and take an interest in science, engineering, politics and history amongst other things so I don't think I am a bit thick. I won't be attempting it a third time. Get a life


The Cobra
The Cobra

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 4 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Cobra (Paperback)
I have read most if not all Forsyth's books and became a great fan. My personnel favourite is The Fourth Protocol. The Cobra was a real let down and made me think that maybe he should call it a day and enjoy himself. I have transferred my admiration to Michael Crichton and John Lecarre

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast of a book, 4 Mar 2012
I have quite a large collection of car books, some good and some less so but this was a real feast of a book. Any car enthusiast should treat themselves to a copy. I was learning something new on nearly every page. And it was not littered with typos as many car books can be. It was also fantastic value for money

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read spoiled, 18 Jan 2009
Aa a committed Petrolhead, I treated myself to this book with Christmas book vouchers. A bit pricey for its flimsy production but I'll get over that. I have enjoyed the book but I was distracted on virtually every page with errors. These were unfinished sentences, additional words which a spell check would not find, "it's" where it should be "its" and more. As a professional journalist Ruppert should know better. If you can ignore these irritations it is an entertaining and informative read.
