The Guards
The Guards
by Ken Bruen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars It was a natural progression to turn to the previously unheard of books that inspired the series to see if they could live up to, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Guards (Paperback)
I first came to the Jack Taylor character and series via the Amazon Prime series and was instantly hooked ( especially by Iain Glen's masterful portrayal of the lead character). It was a natural progression to turn to the previously unheard of books that inspired the series to see if they could live up to that expectation - and I was not disappointed. The author's prose is lean, graphic and dark, in the mould of Ellroy or Chandler but with a distinctiveness, lightness of touch and off beat humour all of its own.

If you like crime fiction and prefer it hard boiled and noir, this author is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concept but with limitation, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The concept is brilliant and the sound reproduction superb. The limitation of being able to store and play Prime music only on a mobile device using the app is the only aspect which prevents an award of 5 stars - I most commonly listen to music in the car via tracks stored on a memory stick and so cannot do this with Prime music tracks.


The Axeman's Jazz
The Axeman's Jazz
by Ray Celestin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best works of fiction for a very long time., 14 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Axeman's Jazz (Paperback)
This is one of the best crime thriller/mystery novels that I have read in a very long time. Not only does it stand up as an exemplary tale in the genre but it is taken to another level by the masterful use of language by the author : the descriptive passages of place brilliantly evoke the character of New Orleans of the era, so that the smoke-filled jazz clubs, the seedy underbelly of the city and its precarious geography come vibrantly to life.

Hard to believe that this is a debut novel but no surprise that it was shortlisted for and won an award.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern masterpiece, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hidden People (Audio CD)
Due to unforeseen circumstances had to miss a live gig locally by this duo who had been highly recommended by friends. Bought the CD to compensate and to hear what the fuss was about. I know now. What a superbly crafted CD this is. Sublime vocals from Kathryn Roberts backed by superb instrumentation and production from Sean Lakeman. All tracks are excellent. A
classic album which rates as one of my top buys of recent years. Am now looking forward to catching them live at their next gig in home county of Devon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but small, 24 Jun. 2013

The quality of the Mat Mouse is very good and the picture design attractive. However, it is a bit smaller than I was expecting and that the task ideally requires, hence 4 not 5 stars.

The Very Best Of Cat Stevens
The Very Best Of Cat Stevens
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A great songwriting talent, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great compilation album spanning the breadth of the artist's career as Cat Stevens. Excellent value with over 70 minutes worth of tracks. The collection confirms a great songwriting talent and beautiful vocal delivery. The only reason for not awarding 5 stars is that, strangely, on a couple of the earlier "pop" tracks (subsequently covered by other artists) the remastering process has lost some of the zest & sponteneity of the original vinyl and revealed previously unheard flaws in the recordings. Otherwise, a minor point in an excellent collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent arrangements, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Mood - for Love (Audio CD)
No longer available as new, we bought this CD second hand primarlly to secure one track which has great sentimental value. However, the whole CD has turned out to be a real gem with some wonderful arrangements by Geoff Love & his orchestra of a host of familiar film scores and other tracks. Very relaxing to listen to and beautifully produced. Incidentally, although not new the CD really was in pristine condition and an absolute bargain at just £1.27!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality period drama, 23 May 2013

This review is from: The Paradise [DVD] (DVD)
My wife loved the serialisation of this drama on TV and snapped up the opportunity to buy the whole series on DVD. We have since watched episodes together and I can understand her enthusiasm completely. Beautifully filmed and with fine acting performances across the board, this is quality period TV drama at its best.
