5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic thriller, 15 July 2010
This review is from: The Forbidden Temple (Paperback)
This is a real page-turner, with twists that keep you guessing until the end. The descriptive passages in the book are evocative and beautifully written, and the action scenes remarkably realistic - one is left with the impression that the author has genuine experience of both technical climbing and the odd scrap...

The real star of the show is the enigmatic (and rather appealing) Luca Matthews. I hope to meet the hero again soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping insight into the nature vs nurture debate, 6 May 2010
This brilliant and thought provoking book considers the role of nature and nurture in sporting prowess. It is punchy, well written and full of fascinating examples and stories. The book manages to be genuinely philosophical whilst being accessible and readable. If you enjoy Matthew's columns in The Times you will love this book!
