Ten Years Since The Revolution - A Contemporary Political Thriller
Ten Years Since The Revolution - A Contemporary Political Thriller
Price: 1.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 10 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some parts of the book are a bit cliched but overall a good account of what could happen, in act has happened in the past.

The method the author uses to do this is by using scenarios and comments that quite clearly reflect today's news and views as well as what has happened in societies that have experienced national socialism and other streamer dogmas.

It doesn't condone nor does it criticise the regimes. It observes.

This review is from: INVASION (Kindle Edition)
The tale seems to start at a strange pace but soon picks up. There are one or two anomalies in it but they don't detract from the overall read.
If you read it as a superficial adventure story or thriller you will not be impressed. If you allow it to kick start considerations and the dawning realisation that in the history of the world invasions and occupations come and go its quite thought provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Feb 2012
Simply the best. Bought by me, Mr Fussy and I am 100% satisfied. Clarity is exceptional in all tonal ranges (that I can hear!) distortion and lack of clarity is always down to a poor recording on my walkman.They are also a superb match to the PS Vita.

They make 5 stars easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed at first but..............., 27 Feb 2012

Due to the lack of ice we've actually had around here this yerar unable to test to the full. However thats maybe a good thing, it broke on the first attempt at scraping the real stuff a couple of weeks back.

Save your money.

Update.........

I genuinely believe based upon other reviews and my swipes use of her ice plane I was unlucky and had one with a inherent weakness. These things happen.

However not long after imposter the review a new scraper arrived from the gentleman who runs the business. I have not had the chance to use it until this morning 10/10/2012 when we had a heavy frost that was too much for the wipers to shift.it worked a treat.

That leaves me able to post the update I wanted to . Excellent product and even better customer service. Thank you and thoroughly recommended product. Review changed from1 star to 5

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this really a story, 10 Oct 2011

This review is from: Lethal Force (Kindle Edition)
I haven't read any of his longer stories so I may be being unfair to the author.

But................

This piece is too short to have a plot or a decent character. What it does have is a location and a description of a couple of blokes and a predictable ending.

It is effectively schoolboy standard storytelling at the poorest level.

However at this low price worth a look if you believe it may be "gripping" ;)

Definitely not recommended.

I'm pretty fair minded so off to buy one of his proper books.

This review is from: The Infidel (Paperback)
This is an excellent first novel and an excellent follow up to the Circuit.

It continues the theme started in the circuit, that is a lack of total gung ho heroic one man war winners.

Considering that and its clear thoughtful message (or messages.....may have missed some) it is a riveting read that frankly makes some of the tired better known authors of this ilk look jaded.

Recommended without reservation to those who want a good adventure story with a military based theme.

A really good steady away read with a spot on moral problem thrown in. Most of us will identify with at least one part of one character at some point in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 14 Sep 2005

Lets balance cost and performance and keep that in mind. Its not an SLR but it is well above the point and shoot level.
I was taking pictures literally as it came out of the box. They were acceptable. Read the instructions however and a whole new dimension opens up.
The lens is excellent. I am stunned at the clarity of many shots. It has many brilliant features, especially the PASM.
My sole criticism is that it does sometimes struggle to get a "focus fix" but there again I suspect many other auto focus cameras would but on the 6490 it is easily dealt with by locking onto a handy object and getting a good depth of field using PASM. Problem solved.
Just to explain I have been taking pics on 35mm slr's for many years and have 2 other almost 100% point & shoot digital cameras in the house.
I do understand the principles of photography and I believe that a large part of the negative feedback around for this camera (and there isn't much!) is possibly from those who expect more than it is capable of or simply have not read the instructions!
Buy it....and Amazon got it to me within 60 hours over a weekend....brilliant service.
