An Autobiography of Buffalo Bill (Colonel W. F. Cody)
An Autobiography of Buffalo Bill (Colonel W. F. Cody)
Price: 0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The real wild west., 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had recently been on holiday in the USA where I was lucky enough to visit the Navajo Reservation and this made we want to find out more about what life was like for the Indians in America in the early days. Although written from the "white man's" perspective I did get an impression of what life was really like for a people who lost their country to people who had no real respect for the rights of the people who lived there. A good read.

This review is from: Treachery (Kindle Edition)
If you are interested in history but also with a twist of fiction this is a great read. It is based in the time of Elizabeth 1st and gives a very good impression of what life was like in England at that time. We often tend to romanticise what life was like for people at that time because most novels are solely about the rich, this however gives a more balanced view.

1.0 out of 5 stars trying a new book, 11 Aug 2013

This review is from: Nameless (Kindle Edition)
I thought I would like to try a new author that I had not tried before. Unfortunately the plot and the topic of this book were definitely not to my liking. The plot was absurd in the extreme and I found that it was so bad that I could not even finish the book.
I would not recommend this book or author to anyone.

This was a great read telling me the background to the rise to power of one of the most powerful men in the world. I found out a great deal of what I did not know about the political situation in Russia and how a vitual unknown could be promoted to a position he was then able to retain.

My grandson loves planes and obviously although the Concord no longer flies it has a special place in the hearts of everyone who enjoys flying. He was delighted to add this model to his expanding collection.

This is a typical Ian Rankin novel. Fast moving and literature at its best. Pity that Rebus is retiring. I will have to find another detective to take his place.
