Bring Him In Mad
Bring Him In Mad
by Russell Croft
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a journey to Victorian Britain, 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Him In Mad (Paperback)
This book is written with much care and is full of carefully researched period detail. The style of writing is of the era and is reminiscent of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or even Charles Dickens. This can take a little while to grow accustomed to but then adds to the atmosphere of the Victorian scenes described.
The key question posed by the narrative is "What is madness?". Is it defined by doctors, the law or the general opinion of contemporary society? This question is as relevant now as it was then.
The book has a wide range of colourful characters and fine descriptions of a number of different locations that seem to bring Victoriam Britain back to life. Alongside the evolving plot, this keeps the reader engaged to the final page.
Like other reviewers, I look forward to other books by Mr Croft in a similar vein.

2.0 out of 5 stars not enough detail, 3 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although a nice book to handle and look at, it wasn't a great deal of use to me planning our trip to Antwerp because there is so little detail about the city. This book concentrates mainly on Brussels with some mention of other major cities, and would be useful if you wanted to tour Belgium, but isn't much use for longer trips to the belgian cities.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I'd hoped, 15 July 2011

This review is from: BrainBox - Football (Toy)
I brought this for my football mad 8 year old, but he wasn't really bothered after the first few plays. Its more a memory game really, and anybody could play it, even if they didn't know a football was round!

I probably wouldn't buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!, 18 Mar. 2011

This review is from: Love Bollywood (Audio CD)
This is a superb double disc set. There is a variety of different types of catchy Indian music, something for everyone. But be warned, it'll make you want to get straight down to your local Indian for a slap-up meal!!
