Childhood's End (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
Childhood's End (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest., 24 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read this book many times over the last 45 years and still find it incredibly powerful.
After I read it the first time I found myself unable to look at any other work of Science Fiction for several years and seriously recommend reading it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 25 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have never read such a load of rubbish.
I gave up after 20 pages or so and feel it is time I will never recover.
Tin foil hat time methinks.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The biggest disappointment about this book is the shortness,the stories while not full of information are fascinating and the book requires more of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars How It Was And Is., 14 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book brought back memories dating back 45 years and made it seem like yesterday,while there are obvious differences the squaddie of today is the same character as the one of my time.
I have the deepest respect for today's soldiers.


Titanic
Titanic
Price: £0.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Titanic facts, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Titanic (Kindle Edition)
While an interesting book written close in time to the tragedy his (the authors) statement does not stand up to his own figures.
Of the children who died all came from 3rd class and a disproportionate number of 3rd class females died.
I recommend Lords A Night To Remember.

4.0 out of 5 stars 617 Squadron, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A thoroughly informative and interesting book giving in my opinion a much more accurate assessment of this famous Squadron than the Dam Busters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Success of the battlecruiser, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book,but shows that although a win for the battlecruisers their overall performance was atrocious,and if thoroughly investigated might have avoided the disasters at Jutland.

5.0 out of 5 stars True modern classic, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw the tv film many years ago,enjoyed it but not as much as I've enjoyed this book,try it yourself. Terrifying what a break down in civilisation would do.
