1.0 out of 5 stars A load of tosh and drivel; a total waste of my money and time, 28 Jan. 2016

This review is from: The Corrections (Kindle Edition)
It was supposed to be funny - it wasn't
It was supposed to be well-written -it wasn't
There is no justification for filling a book with obscure long words AND over-long paragraphs just to demonstrate to the reader how clever you are.
After 50 pages I consigned it to Room 101 and only scrolled to the end to write this warning to other would-be readers, taken in by the glowing praise !!
If I could leave zero stars or a negative number, I would !

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 28 Jan. 2016

James Bond meets DCI Lewis ! A very good read from beginning to end and bound to get you thinking, about geopolitics, about cyber-security and about the reliability of allies in these times of shifting loyalties.
Well-researched and fairly unputdownable, if at the opposite end of the spectrum to Bravo Two Zero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 19 Jan. 2016

I can never tire of hearing or reading about this incredible deception, which undoubtedly saved many thousands of lives in the Allied invasions of Europe.
The author has carried out meticulous research and yet avoids the dry dustiness of academia to bring us a tale which is insightful, humorous, undoubtedly accurate and a thoroughly good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable - non-stop action, 13 Jan. 2016

What a good book for travelling. You can put it down and pick it up again and get straight back into the storyline
Great characters and very believable, even likeable, for professional assassins
Why only 4 stars - like many books and films of this genre, our heroes can shoot faster, straighter and more rounds than any of the opposition. Come on !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good bedtime reading, 9 Jan. 2016

That's not to say it will put you to sleep, but it's definitely not one of those books which you can't put down.
It's not a thriller, it's fairly pedestrian in its pace, there's no sex or violence but I've read three of these books in the last two weeks, just for relaxation at home

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very credible, 6 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Again (Kindle Edition)
The plot revolves around a maverick who blunders into crime way out of his depth, yet convenient possession of his father's old WWII pistol allows him to go around like Billy the Kid.
No, not really a believable plot, sorry

A really good read. Emotions and the fortunes of life are well explored and the characters are very well drawn, considering the very short format

4.0 out of 5 stars an extremely useful guide, 5 Oct. 2014

This book is a very useful tool for anyone who has a partner, child, relative or close friend with BPD.
I helps you understand the illness, takes you inside the sufferer's mind and gives you the knowledge and support you need to live your own life in a way that demonstrates your love for the person, but establishes the behavioural boundaries which help your loved one restore 'normality'

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a classic, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dirty Dancing (Amazon Video)
One of those films which you can watch again and again and never get tired of.
Terribly weak story line, but the music , dance and sheer exuberance of the cast make up for it.
