5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about submarine warfare I have read, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without doubt this is the best book about submarine warfare I have read. There is an astonishing honesty about both the successes and failures rarely found in military memoires. It is so well written that you actually feel as though you are standing right by the author while he is in action. The only slight criticism is that whilst undoubtedly a maritime war book, which stands quite brilliantly on its own, it would have been interesting to have known a little of the author's later life and some of his fellow officers. I understand he went on to have an illustrious career in publishing.

If you are looking for a very exciting, beautifully written account of the career of a submarine called 'Storm' and its captain, look no further. It is a gripping true account that I was quite unable to put down.

One of the most enjoyable books I have read this year. An incredible life story of one of the heros of WWII. He was a man who led from the front and had the capacity to inspire others to achieve great things. If you are interested in naval history, sailing or Antartic exploration all between one cover, it is difficult to think of a better beautifully written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most interesting and exciting read, 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I have known the appalling history of Alfred Dreyfus for many years and have read several books on the case, this novel provides new insights into the whole ghastly affair and really brings it alive. Robert Harris has produced a brilliant thriller, which I found almost impossible to put down. This is beautifully written and story telling at its very best. The tragedy is, of course, that it is all true. Whether you know the basic facts of the Dreyfus Affair or not, it is difficult to imagine anyone who will not be moved and entirely absorbed by the book. It is my hope that they will make a quality movie; it certainly deserves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent replacement part. Promptly delivered., 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hozelock Titan 2000 Impeller
The part was easily fitted into the old pump body and the whole is now as good as new. For once, an excellent part at a modest price that does exactly what it is designed for. Exceptionally quick service. I cannot rate the whole exercise highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good thriller, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat for most of the action. As expected, the acting of Tom Hanks as the captain is as brilliant as it is convincing. The other parts are very well played making it a most memorable movie. Rarely equalled.
