Whale

5.0 out of 5 stars Callum's favourite book, 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whale (Hardcover)
Callum, our grandson, kept renewing thus from the public library so we felt we had to get him his own copy. He loves it!

This review is from: The Wasp Factory (Kindle Edition)
Wonderful for a first novel. Iain must have a dark mind, it needed time spent reading it, no good trying to read it in short bursts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prefer the Hebridean series, 15 Oct 2013

Very good and wonder how much research Peter May had to do, how long he spent in China. Will definitely be reading more of the series.

Better than the standard charger by far tho' perhaps it could come with its own cable. Luckily I still have the one which came with the original.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Thread (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed the historical aspects of the book but disappointed in the fact that it remained a "soft" book throughout, recommend it to ladies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing ending, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do persevere with Stephen King's books and enjoyed reading Doctor Sleep but as in his more recent novels I've found the endings to be a disappointment. There is all the buid-up towards a climax and then we get the ending finishing within a few pages and easily foreseen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unbelievably silly. Finished it but only because I don't give up. I Shan't be tempted to read any more books by this author


The Secret of Crickley Hall

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought it was predictable and poorly written. James Herbert's early works were
.much better than this. I don't like to leave a book unfinished
