5.0 out of 5 stars How one action can influence a whole life, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So intriguing. From a simple action taken by a young boy we see his life unfold as a lie and his character form along twisted lines until he finds an understanding of himself and life. Utterly fascinating and thought provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tudor history as fresh today, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The power behind the throne of Henry V111 is brought vividly to life in this intriguing tale of political machinations. Vivid and fascinating, we see how Anne Boleyn and her family are just pawns in a greater game of power. At every turn we feel the controlling hand of the 'Peter Mandelson' figure of Cromwell as he manipulates and yet we understand the man behind the seeming cold efficiency of his arrangement of pawns in a bigger game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clever idea to involve another character who is so iconic ..., 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clever idea to involve another character who is so iconic but this is not Lee Child standard and I couldn't get to care about the main characters in the same way. Maybe over-raised expectations as it was as well written as most crime novels but just didn't involve my emotions enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming children's story with lovely message, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sid's foray into the outside world to find another home will echo with the urge to explore of any young child. Sid is courageous and fun and his encounter with other animals is charmingly illustrated. There is a lovely sense of reassurance as he finds that his own home is best! Just long enough to engage a young child comfortably and a good bedtime read.
