Prayer
Prayer
by Philip Kerr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a prayer, 18 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Prayer (Paperback)
This was my first experience of this author and although the early plot-lines promised well it soon ran into the formulaic- cop sidelined from position and acting alone. The religious theme and the role of God was novel but I felt let down at the close.

Having studied Jane Austen's Persuasion at 'A' Level I wished that this book had been available back in 1965! The book is both informative and engaging asking questions I'd never contemplated. I thorough;y enjoyed it- excellent scholarship,

Mind expanding covering a wide scope of cultural history. I am in awe of such sweeps of scholarship and appreciate the revisionist take on German intellectualism.
