5.0 out of 5 stars A mind blowing read, 1 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vulcan 607 (Paperback)
This book is so exciting that you can really imagine being sat next to the pilot during this daring exploit.
The training, the flight all the way to the Falklands in an aircraft that wasn't meant for such long haul, the tension, stress and sheer daring and determination.
The crew must have been on the edge from start to finish, the in flight refuelling at night when you can't see what you are doing all adding to the tension.
As if that wasn't enough after all that then there was bombing the runway at Port Stanley. not knowing for twenty four hours whether you had actually hit your target or not.
Then the flight home, how did the mind tolerate such pressure and they did it all just as a matter of fact.
You have to take your hat off to these boys, I really wonder if the same situation could have been achieved nowadays.
What an amazing book, one that everyone should read to appreciate just what these boys did for us.

Stasis None
Stasis None
by Ian Rutter
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing!, 7 Feb 2011
This review is from: Stasis None (Paperback)
This book is very deep, you will need all your wits about you to absorb the twisting storyline.
The characters are very realistic and well thought out. A continually changing plot that keeps you thinking even after you have put the book down, that's if you can!
Fiction or reality, it could be both, sometimes the line between the two is invisible we will probably never know or if we do it may be too late, intrigue at it's very best.
Well done Ian Rutter I for one really enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one.

Friends in Conflict: Anglo-Icelandic Cod Wars and the Law of the Sea
Friends in Conflict: Anglo-Icelandic Cod Wars and the Law of the Sea
by Hannes Jonsson
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Used for refernece only, 11 Oct 2010
This book is a valuable source of information particularly about Cod Wars.
I was very interested in the 1976 Cod War and I found everything I needed to know.
It is full of precise facts and that is like the www all by itself.

The One That Got Away
The One That Got Away
by Chris Ryan
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Are these people really born of this earth?, 6 May 2010
This review is from: The One That Got Away (Paperback)
Once you get into this book it is so realistic you feel you could almost be there with them.
The one luxury that you have is that you are sat somewhere comfortable reading this whilst they would have been out there being shot at, captured and tortured.
This book is written superbly and the realism sometimes is just too much.
How did they cope with all this? it makes you wonder if they are human or superhuman as they would appear.
This man has not only been a brilliant soldier his writing capabilities are first rate and this book deserves nothing less than 10 out of 10.
After all of this Chris Ryan's life must seem tranquil by comparison, I wonder which he prefers?

Person of Interest
Person of Interest
by Ray Barnds
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 16.28

4.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasing read, 3 May 2010
This review is from: Person of Interest (Hardcover)
This book is full of interest right from page one.
It is set in Portland State University where Ed. Ashley, a Custodian, level two, works the night shift.
He discovers a Professor and the Dean in the showers together at 2 a.m. doing things they should only do in private.
Ed. rushes out unseen and instead of reporting it to security he takes it on his own shoulders to try and keep it quiet, that is until the Dean decides to outsource the Custodians work in an attempt to get rid of the onlooker.
From this point the story takes on an audacious twist and Ed. for all his troubles, ends up as a suspect in a double murder plot.
The storyline is very realistic and is exciting all the way through and is compelling reading to say the very least.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good murder mystery.

Born to be Riled
Born to be Riled

1.0 out of 5 stars You are not God Mr. Clarkson., 26 April 2010
This review is from: Born to be Riled (Paperback)
This book is all about one mans strive against all the things in life that he dislikes.
He is condescending to say the very least and insults anyone who gets in his way.
There is no interest in the content and the writing is terrible.
Try doing something different for a change like working for a living instead of writing crap.
Help the environment by not wasting paper or alternatively write something nice about people although I think you would struggle.
This book is full of rubbish from start to finish and I for one wished I hadn't wasted my money, as for its usefulness, it is going in my pile for shredding.

If Only They Could Talk
If Only They Could Talk
by James Herriot
Edition: Paperback

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Rebirth of an all time great, 20 April 2010
James Herriots' stories are always going to go down well.
A struggling vet just out of college joins a practise and attempts to woe the old fastidious farmers in and around Darrowby in Yorkshire circa 1930's
Trying to educate them to his own way of thinking becomes a far bigger task than he realises and some of the characters he meets on this journey are nothing short of brilliant.
They are so well depicted you feel that they are so genuine and realistic that should you drive into the Yorkshire Dales you would half expect to bump into them.
The story has been around for years but well done, it is still a magnificent story.

Your Heart Belongs to Me
Your Heart Belongs to Me
by Dean Koontz
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best by any means!, 19 April 2010
Being an avid Dean Koontz fan for years I was sadly disappointed with this one.
Most of his books are powerful and dramatic to say the least, usually right from the start but this one was lacking in intensity (no pun intended).
The plot was admirable and had great possibilities but then it gradually started to fall apart at the seams and then unfortunately it was downhill all the way.
The main character, Ryan Perry was well portrayed but the others were all well under par and generally the book was not up to the standard that I have come to expect from this great writer.
Overall sadly inadequate, not his best attempt by any means and the disillusionment was too much.

Wilderness Refuge: A Prophet's Kingdom
Wilderness Refuge: A Prophet's Kingdom
by Cheryl Ann Toliver
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A surpisingly good read, 15 April 2010
If you like religious, factual books then this is definately for you.
The book is as deep as the ocean and hard going at times but with very life like characters and situations it is compelling reading that is second to none.
Having said that you don't have to be religious to read it and you are held right from the start.
The book finishes with 32 pages of facts and figures fit for anyone who likes this sort of thing.
Overall a fascinating read and I for one was quite surprised just how much I really enjoyed it.
