3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading advert, 13 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was disappointing. The advertising suggested I was buying a high capacity memory card. In fact, what I got was a receptacle for a microSD memory card. The advert was misleading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever historical fiction, 2 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is well written, and it covers a period that I've been totally engrossed in since about 2007. I thought the method chosen by the author to communicate intelligence information was unrealistic - a minor criticism. I found some of the nastier sequences a bit heavy for my taste, but enjoyed the clever interweaving of fact and fiction - the essence of good historical fiction. Looking forward to the rest of the books in this trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well crafted standard plot., 2 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty standard plot with fairly hackneyed tropes, but well written. The ending was a little too predictable and too unbelievable for my liking. Definitely worth 4 stars though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive 21-day composition!, 2 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty good space opera. I liked the warlike cats. Amazed that anyone could write, edit and publish a book like this in 21 days. I found the ending quite confusing, but otherwise, a fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable. I flew through it., 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent story, told in a straightforward way. I flew through it. I like the way the second book tells the story of a significant character from this one. I assume no 3 does the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable 16th century frolic, 18 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book. Acting on instructions from Francis Bacon, Tom Clarady spends time in Cambridge posing as a student, in order to uncover a nest of Puritan nonconformists. A tutor is found hanging from a beam. There is an apparent suicide note. Tom discovers the body, and his ‘intelligencer’ activities broaden into a search for a murderer, for murder it turns out to be. These books are wonderfully well written 16th century frolics, replete with archaic words that bring the period to life. How can you go wrong with an author who boasts a vocabulary that includes words like: partlet, scapegrace, helpmeet and farthingale to mention just a few!?

4.0 out of 5 stars Classical Chuck, 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zeroes: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book. I love what Chuck does and how he does it. Point of view switches were handled carefully, but I agree with other reviewers that there were probably too many of them. Otherwise, 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant historical work., 20 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant book. I was very impressed. Articulate, well-written, well-researched, sensitive to the memories of all those involved in the anti-Nazi resistance movements during WW2. A historical chronicle of the highest order. I've just finished reading the book and intend to read it again, in the near future.
