I have had the bag for a few weeks now and it is just what I wanted. It fits my kindle on one of the outer pockets, shuts neatly and - let's be honest - looks great!

The Witches Within Westminster
The Witches Within Westminster
by Peter Buckland
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Rage Against the Machine, 7 Sept. 2014
This book is searing polemic against the forces of inertia, political expediency and fatally unatural farming practices. The author is not an agricultural activist. He is not a political journalist.He is someone whose son, Mark, was killed by the human strain of what is popularly known as 'Mad Cow Disease' (Bovine Spongiform Encephelitus) in 2006.

There are 2 books within these covers. There is the savage expose and sustained attack on the political establishment of the 1980s and 90s when the lack of political will coupled with the aloof ideaology of free market economics literally poisoned the bloodstream of the NHS. And then there is the howl of the author as he describes the steady decline of his son's health. It was this strand of the book that pierced me, that pricked my eyes with tears. It was the steadiness of Buckland's pen describing the harrowing loss of his son that made me stagger and gasp for breath.

Dylan Thomas' words stalk these pages; 'Rage,rage against the dying of the light'.

But it is the opening sentence of the book that best describes what is at its heart: 'How do I move forward between the extremes of loving, and having to let go?' That is a question for all of us.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just finished this incredible novel of the French Revolution. Mind - bogglingly good. Her first (rejected) novel. It follows the lives of some of the central characters of the French Revolution depicting them in a nuanced way that brings them to life. A page-turning literary read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Big Disappointment, 10 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was really disappointed by this 'classic'. I felt that it took a long time to get going, and when it did, the end felt like a cheat.
On the plus side,there were undoubted echoes of the modern Control Orders and the Post 9/11 justice system.
Can someone please explain this book's towering reputation to me, please?
