4.0 out of 5 stars One of the most emotionally enaging novels I've ever read, 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A God in Ruins (Kindle Edition)
I am not often as emotionally affected by a book as I was by A God in Ruins. Whilst I have not read the companion work Life after Life, I found myself drawn into the saga of Teddy and the Todd family as their memories range forwards and backwards through a turbulent 20th century. The fiction is grounded and underpinned by the very real and stark statistics of RAF Bomber Command, and it is difficult to appreciate how WW2 affected a generation that are all but gone from living memory. My only reservation is with the ending, which I can appreciate as clever sleight of hand on the subject of memory and fiction, but I felt rather negated the emotion invested the characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not sure who Mr Newman intended this book to be enjoyed by., 6 Jan. 2016

This review is from: Anno Dracula (Kindle Edition)
Possibly a little unfair to rate this after reading only fifty pages on Kindle. I am a fan of alternative history and some fantasy genres, but I'm really not sure who Mr Newman intended this book to be enjoyed by. The cover would indicate this might be a fairly light hearted read, whereas the first fifty pages seem to be a quite serious and humourless portrayal of an alternative Victorian London with a growing power struggle between warm humans and vampires, whilst playing to the gallery by name-checking various real or fictitious Victorian characters. If the author wanted to portray a convincing alternative history / fantasy, all this Victorian name-dropping was distracting and inevitably limited new character development.

TheLady From Zagreb: Bernie Gunther Thriller 10 (Bernie Gunther Mystery)
TheLady From Zagreb: Bernie Gunther Thriller 10 (Bernie Gunther Mystery)
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Latest installment didn't disappoint, 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of the Bernie Gunther series, and latest installment didn't disappoint. Philip Kerr has managed to weave interesting subplots around some of the most notorious nazi figures such as Heydrich and Goebbels, whilst maintaining the credibility of some of the factual incidents underpinning each story. The Lady from Zagreb again highlighted the dichotomy of "croniesm" at the top of the nazi party with
clandestine machinations in neutral Switzerland, brutal regional politics and animosities, whilst the average Berliner represented by Bernie hope only for a return to the old days of the Weimar Republic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth persevering for the plot twist, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was initially finding the lead male character and set-up somewhat hard to accept. However, I persevered and there is a great plot twist mid-story which is worth waiting for. Thereafter an enjoyable read with a developing plot and enough characterisation to keep the reader interested. Couldn't help but feel it was slightly "Gone Girl" derivative

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, atmospheric story to the backdrop of a rapidly changing pre and post WW2 America, 2 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was an excellent, atmospheric story. The book starts in Texas in the 1930's and the backdrop is Deperssion era, pre WW2 America, where the frontier spirit is still within living memory. This contrasts with servicemen returning to a newly confident, oil boom driven post WW2 America, tempered by hucksters, racism and the prevailing communist paranoia. Only complaint was overly lyrical and slightly inconclusive ending
