5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
for episode 9 alone,a standout even by the impossibly high standards this undertaking has set itself; also thumbs up for a considerable improvement on the handling of Robb's romance in the book

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, yes, but ..., 5 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Book of Love (Paperback)
... the author and her editor between them do not appear to understand the difference between "I" and "me". There are several instances of such egregious formulations as "it seemed to Angela and I" and they jolt into an otherwise absorbing read like a lump of dog do on a Persian carpet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unresolved questions - don't read if you don't like spoilers, 31 Dec. 2011
Sorry if I'm missing something here (I read very quickly, so miss details, and it's not easy to go back and check in such a voluminous - er, volume):

Much hangs on Gordon's inability to read or write - how did he create the postcards? Anyway, why can't he read and why doesn't the Home Office know it (hence the literally incredible slip-up over the letters of reference), after years of intense institutionalisation?

What was the point about Gordon's eyes and the sunglasses? We are carefully told that there is something odd about young Richard's eyes - are we supposed to overrule Frazer's indentification of Gordon as Ian? What's the point of that?

What was the point of Matthew Jones?

If Winston's ancestry is West Indian - how did his family manage to hang onto an African surname? If he's from the West Indies then his ancestors were slaves, and as such they would have been given English surnames. This one could so very easily have been avoided by making his ancestry African instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bear of little brain, 24 April 2008
This review is from: The Oxford Murders (Paperback)
OK, so I'm being stupid or overlooking something - but what /is/ the fourth figure in the "M heart 8" series?

It's an interesting concept for a murder mystery, but feels a bit peremptory and unconvincing, and the police characters in particular are wholly un-credible. I would make allowances for having been translated from Spanish, but that doesn't stop Perez Reverte from being a consistently terrific read.
