I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game
I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game
Price: 3.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyable read and with many insights. By the end, though, I had very little empathy with the secret footballer, despite reading the columns for years. I do hope that this man is brave enough to reveal his identity once he has finished playing football. And by the way, we DO pay your wages, not only through ticket receipts, but through supporting your sponsors ( capitalism), through paying for tv channels that pay enormous amounts to the Football League, especially the Premiership.

Glad to have read this but it did fall slightly short of expectations of it being an undiscovered classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a keen Dickens fan and also a fan of Claire Tomalin's biographies on which this is based, I expected to love this. I didn't.

Hard to put a finger on why except that it seemed dull and the characters were not well developed. Dickens wife, in particular, was portrayed in a very bad light.

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Dog
Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Dog
by Dylan Thomas
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories, 17 July 2014
These stories take Dylan from being a young boy to being a young man. They are funny and moving and redolent of place and characters.

Thoroughly reccommended

This review is from: The Secret River (Kindle Edition)
This began well. London in Georgian time described very well. I enjoyed the descriptions of the area of Rotherhithe and Bermondsey. The Australian part was less so for me. A bit obvious. Cannot see how this got on Booker shortlist as is hardly great literature. Enjoyable but not very demanding of the reader.

JK really knows how to tell a story. I found I just wanted to keep on reading. Lots of characters which can mean you have to think about who is who but the main characters are memorable and interesting. Funny and poignant. Perhaps the ending is not unexpected but no less real for that.

Great summer read. Easy to read in a day. I liked the heroine and the hero and though you could predict everything that happens it was done very well.
