An Ice-cream War
An Ice-cream War

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant novel, 11 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Ice-cream War (Paperback)
A wonderful novel centred on the East African campaign of the First World War, weaving humour and adventure into the folly of war told from the perspective of a disfunctional upper class family, and always leaning in the direction of the corruption of privilege, and the rottenness of colonialism.

Plusle was gladly received, great fun on his own, but the more so in the company of his blue counterpart Minum. The two accompanied my granddaughter in recent hospitalization, kept her cheerful and happy, and no- one could ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and totally gripping thriller., 1 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Traveler (Paperback)
I have long been a fan of John Katzenbach, and am always alert to his latest publication - getting hold of each one is a literary event for me. I had not previously read "The Traveller", one of his early works, and snapped it up when I came across it as a real find. The author is a master of the psychological thriller, literate and exciting, holding the reader in the thrall of his talent. "The Traveller" is excellent, and highly recommended

The Willoughby Captains
The Willoughby Captains
by Talbot Baines Reed
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully articulate and literate school story., 23 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderfully articulate and literate school story set in a late Victorian public school. Talbot Baines Reed, the author, was a master of the school story genre - and in this tale he does not disappoint. There is adventure, fun, integrity and honour at the fore, heroes and villains entertainingly characterized. I think it is a book that "older boys" who, like myself feel rather young at heart, will particularly enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the doctor ordered., 12 Dec. 2015
The little dragon was obtained for my granddaughter, who wanted a red dragon to cuddle in hospital prior to and after an eye operation. It fit the bill perfectly, and is the more valued for that. Thank you!
