Octopussy & The Living Daylights and Other Stories
Octopussy & The Living Daylights and Other Stories
by Ian Fleming
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing and exciting stories, 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of Ian Fleming's "long" short stories involving James Bond, make excellent listening, brought alive by Tom Hiddlestone's first class reading. James Bond tends to feature for so many people much more in the cinema than in their original literary form, and it is only by reading Fleming's work, or in this case listening to someone else read it, that you realise how good the writing is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good product in itself, 1 Oct. 2013

I am very happy withthis pendant as such, and glad to have it, hence I give it Five stars. The downside of it all was that the supplier charged me extremely excessive postage, and trying to sort it out into what was fair rather soured the purchase for me.

The Sanders series of novels by Edgar Wallace are among his best, very well written, fast moving, full of humour and well drawn characters, and all with a pleasing sense of humanity and insight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is it me?, 26 Aug. 2013

This review is from: The Guts (Hardcover)
I am a long time admirer of Roddy Doyle and have read and collected his works for both adults and children. This book has made me feel so sad not to like it. With personal family experience of cancer and its treatment i was at once taken up in that thread of the plot, and it was that which got me to struggle through the first 100 paes or so before I gave up. I found the dialogue too tedious and irriating to continue, and I quite accept that it may be me rather than the book that is to blame. In an episode of "Father Ted"', Donal comes out with such greetings to Ted as "How are ye Ted, ye gobshite ye"' and "Hallo Ted, ye oud bollix". Ted asks, "Donal, have you been reading them Roddy Doyle books again?" It is perhaps a good thing that Donal didnt have access to "The Guts". Sorry Roddy, this book is not for me.

This review is from: More Educated Evans (Paperback)
The more I read of Edgar Wallace, the more I like his works. The are of their time, but the twists, turns, and above all the humour and choice of phrase are timeless.

Meet Mr Callaghan, The Urgent Hangman, Dangerous Curves, Eneasy Terms

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheyney was GOOD!, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this omnibus volume featuring three Slim Callaghan novels by Peter Cheyney in a nostalgic moment. What has pleased me so much is to find how well they stand up some 70 years afte their publication. The atmosphere is very much of the 1940s and this serves now to add character to what are excellent examples of the crime writer's art. Cheyney very much deserves re-reading, and in Slim Callaghan he has created a dark hero with a timeless appeal.

Martin Jarvis has done a wonderful reading of this classic James Bond novel. The characters all spring to life, the excitement is infectious and the action never flags. Highly recommended.

I was so pleased to find this unique and lovely pendant displaying my wife's favourite flower. It is all I expected, was safely delivered in good time and good order, and will stand as a tribute to her memory. With many thanks to the goldsmith.
