Travels with Charley: In Search of America (Penguin Modern Classics)
Travels with Charley: In Search of America (Penguin Modern Classics)
Price: £4.35

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read., 17 Dec 2014

This is my first Steinbeck novel. Apart from seeing the film from the book East of Eden , my knowledge of him has been limited to say the least .
It is an eye opener on America at that time .
I will definitely read another !

This review is from: Deadline (Kindle Edition)
What I like about this author is that she writes about different people in her books. None of the same cop scenarios like a lot of authors use.
She can also write a mean sex scene lol , though not in the style of " fifty shades of grey" .
All in all an enjoyable book!

This is a wonderful book and should be read by everyone , not just exam students .
It is a shocking indictment of the treatment of black people especially in the deep south.
It is also a lovely gentle story of a family and it's customs at that time.

I haven't read a Sandra Brown book in a while , something I now regret as I have plowed through a lot of rubbish recently.
This is a good read with believable characters.

I have read four of Anne Holt books and found them excellent,unfortunately this book is very poor.(I considered suicide long before the end.)

Having previously read a Mark Edward's only book , which was a new author for me , I was completely unimpressed .
It was totally predictable and read more like chic lit than the thriller it promised.
However the combination of the two author's in this book proved to be an excellent read.
I will read another by this duo definitely .

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 14 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When searching desperately for new authors I came across Mark Edward's. It sounded as if it was right up my street so to speak.
It is written in " New man " sort of language and impossible to take seriously as a thriller , indeed it is as if the author has crammed every scenario he could think of into this book.
I actually couldn't be bothered to read the wind up at the end.
If you like lightweight geeky thrillers this will suit you, but I'm afraid not for me.

This is a new author for me.
The plot is different scary and interesting with characters that are believable .
I will definitely read another, hopefully one set in summer and not in six feet of snow.

This is an excellent read!
Castillo's books about the Amish are interesting and different from the ordinary run of the mill thrillers.
Eminently readable!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of her best, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a pleasure to read an Ann Zouroudi book.
It means a few hours of escapism especially from the " blood and guts " novels that are my usual fare.
She conjures up a picture of a long ago Greece that makes you wish you could sample it.
Highly recommended for a jaded palate!
