The Caravaggio Conspiracy
The Caravaggio Conspiracy
Price: £4.29

5.0 out of 5 stars History, yes. Art, yes, Good storytelling, yes, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clever plot, good twists in time and place. Convincing characters... an excellent read. I am going to read it again soon, for the sheer enjoyment, even though I know the outcome


The Warden
The Warden
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The first Barchester novel, and still good to read, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Warden (Kindle Edition)
This tale underpins the even greater Barchester Towers, and is so sympathetic to the gentle Warden of the title, and so clever in its (incredibly modern) exposure of the powers of the press and manipulative legal machinations that it becomes timeless in its appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars a unique experience., 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was curious, as I had never read this famous title. Not easy to accept in some ways... but make up your own mind!


The Thorn Birds
The Thorn Birds
Price: £3.59

5.0 out of 5 stars An old favourite still as appealing as ever, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Thorn Birds (Kindle Edition)
This will probably be an historical novel one day, as it tells of situations and attitudes now changing in the modern world as a whole - let alone in Australia! So human, so compelling, even though we are less easily shocked these days.


Crossfire (Francis Thriller)
Crossfire (Francis Thriller)
Price: £3.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done, both authors!, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't put it down... read far into the night. As clever in depiction of place, people and events as ever.


The Golden Egg: (Brunetti 22) (Commissario Brunetti)
The Golden Egg: (Brunetti 22) (Commissario Brunetti)
Price: £6.17

5.0 out of 5 stars Brunetti and Leon are both on form, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Afficianados can relax. Not as formulaic as one or two of the last novels in this Venetian series. One is held by the plot and situation surrounding the crime, of course, but by the characters,too. I now feel as if Brunetti and his family are friends and neighbours. I would hate to see this detective and admirable human being fade from our sight.


The Song of Troy
The Song of Troy
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant telling of the old tale, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Song of Troy (Kindle Edition)
You really don't have to struggle with translations from Greek. The knowledge is all here, and you easily become involved with the characters, the action and the tensions. I promptly sat down and re-read it to let it all soak in.


Gordianus The Finder Omnibus (Books 1-4)
Gordianus The Finder Omnibus (Books 1-4)
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fancy a guided tour of Rome and its empire?, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Here it is. Some of the characters are more gripping than others. That is the problem when blending 'real' figures with your own created characters. Sometimes strangely unemotional in the face of danger, both Gordianus and the writer's style. But cool!


Kenzo Flower Eau de Toilette for Women - 30 ml
Kenzo Flower Eau de Toilette for Women - 30 ml
Price: £22.94

5.0 out of 5 stars my favourite perfume, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's to say? perfume is subjective, and this one is not overly floral, not drily sophisticated. Wearable on most occasions, I guess.


Queen's Gambit
Queen's Gambit
Price: £3.32

4.0 out of 5 stars Godd choice of a little-known queen, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen's Gambit (Kindle Edition)
Well-researched, so the history is sound, and with a feel for character... even one not as flamboyant as some other queens. How to survive...
