Excellent little machine. And with Windows 7 Professional. Who could ask for anything more?

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read., 2 Jan. 2016

This review is from: Project - 16 (Kindle Edition)
Martin Pass has great potential as a writer. He could well become one of those names to conjure with. His stories are inventive, nicely populated and this reader was really interested to find out what happened in the end, and it worked out well on several layers. More importantly, it left a great barn door wide open for a sequel. And we need a sequel. (Unless I’ve missed something.) What is Miller’s first name, other than ‘Dusty’ of course? Who is the mysterious scientist? Although I think we all figured that one out. Do Miller and Riley make a go of things?
So, Martin, why only four stars? Two reasons, although they boil back down to one. Editing and research. Attention to detail.
The word is ‘laid’, not ‘led’. And it becomes increasingly irritating. And it has been mentioned before, and it is possible to correct a kindle book. It is a ‘Glock’ not a ‘Gloch’ and there are a lot of different models. Tell us which one. And ‘The Isle of Mann’? Come on Martin.
I read your response to another reader about similar issues and as you pointed out word blindness kicks in after three readings and the bad news is it still there after seven or eight, but that is what it needs, because every reading removes a few more. And get your friends to read it.
You may think that these little points don’t matter. Although it is possible to get away with a little more if writing in the first person. Unless the narrator is an English teacher. Actually, no you still can. But, trust me, they do matter. After all, haven’t you been just a bit annoyed that while I’ve been lecturing you I have been spelling your name incorrectly?
Bottom line, I shall read more of Martyn’s books and enjoy them.

Hooray. Quality science fiction. Deserves a longer review, but not on a kindle keyboard.

Well done

It's always good to find a story that isn't all Star Wars space battles and that expects the reader to do a little work.

I shall be reading more of Mr McElhaney's work.

As a great fan of Jodi Taylor's work I was really pleased to see a new title, but gave up in chapter one because of the spacing. It looks like someone let kdp run the auto system or, more likely, Bitchface Barclay has got a job editing the chronicles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cats and Marmite, 17 Oct. 2014
I'm a dog person and have a somewhat biased attitude towards cats. This very funny collection of poems probably explains why - like Marmite - some of us love cats and some of us don't. The odd thing is, the reasons for liking and disliking them are exactly the same.

Very good and the profits go to an animal charity. Good stocking filler.

Edward W Robertson maintains the quality of writing that he has shown throughout this series. Characters from earlier parts pop up and add to the feeling of being 'in' on the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear!, 13 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like to support British science fiction writers, and Christopher Nuttal has the potential to be worthy of support.

But - and there had to be a 'but' - he really must either start editing his work properly or get in someone who can. Typos, dubious spelling, too much use of the three stop pause, ... , and similar faults make reading hard work.

If you can see past these things, plots are good and we aren't faced with the world being saved by an American.

As it is, I lasted for about 50 pages and gave in. The problem is that I might not bother with any of his other books again.
