5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended if you like action thrillers, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stalkers (Kindle Edition)
Although this is for Stalkers I have read all three of his books in the last week and a half - why? Because they are actioned packed thrillers which cover some VERY gruesome killings but the pace is frantic, the plotting is very tight and in 'Heck' he's created a very believable main character driven to catch villians. I was so caught up in these that one got finished in the wee small hours.
Recommended if you like action thrillers, that are non stop from start to finish and that don't treat you like an idiot

5.0 out of 5 stars Orwell had nothing on this..., 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paints such a scary view of the future. This is excellent sci-fi because you can see a lot of it today, smartphones and Google glass being just the start..but what is beyond doubt is the speed we would go for this and get a Seed..people I think would slide inside their own reality and many would love it. What this book does is show the logical outcome of intrusion and loss of privacy and what governments might do. The story moves along at a really fast pace and I see there is a sequel..be good to see how this ends..

First World War For Dummies (For Dummies (History, Biography & Politics)
First World War For Dummies (For Dummies (History, Biography & Politics)
by SeŠn Lang
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, comprehensive account of WW1, 25 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I think this is a an excellent book because it is written in a clear style that attempts to break the First World War down into manageble chunks
Its a break from the narrative style and just a chronelogical listing of events and you can easily dip in and out of the book, identifying specifcs topics you want to follow
It looses one star just because of the language style - there is a pretty fine line between a clear style and a chatty style for what is a serious issue - and just every now and then I think it crosses that line
It is comprehensive and sometimes threw quite quite interesting insights as well - so I would recommend it for a less heavy , more digestible way to study WW1

No side effects either but did not work for me

3.0 out of 5 stars Clever idea , but I was not grabbed, 29 Jun 2014
This review is from: Jam (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has taken the full review period because I have come back to it on at least three occaisions because I just could not get into it
The situation is quite a neat idea, M25 everyone can sympathise with that, neat trick to put it a black spot for signal reception etc etc
but I remeber reading a sci fi a long time ago about someone trapped at the junction of a number of motorways and it seemed better executed. The characters come across as quite shallow and becaus eof the need to have an ensemble cast I did not feel you got under their skins that much and I felt it was a little stereo typed.
I had to really push to get to the end and finally did not think it worth it - I have read better - sorry


Oral-B Pro 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Pro 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - very effective, 28 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like this a lot. The brush has a built 'red' sensor if you are brushing too hard , so that helps you ease off. In just a week I have noticed a clear whitening of my teeth as it brushes more effectively and my breath is better as a result again of getting to the back teeth more consistently
The charger is fine , quite simple and compact with a guide to make sure it charges properly. I used it for a full week on a single charge so that is helpful as well - though not so for a holiday I guess

Three songs from one of the best bands touring today including one, Good Things Happen which is one of the best songs they have done.
Bags of energy for Electric Man as well and having seen them take Manchester by storm this is a great reminder..

3.0 out of 5 stars Shallow. depressing view of politicians, civil servants and news media, 15 May 2014
This review is from: Acts of Omission (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found this very hard to read because basically its tough to identify with any of the characters in the story. There is a journalist who seems not to know what they want , the fame and all that gos with it, and introverted spy who 'looses' a disk of data relating to the Stasi files informants
I found it very difficult to credit the government view in the book that this data should not be returned to Germany and the lack of ability of the Foreign Secretary to do anything against any advice of the civil service and secret services was just depressing. I think the portrayal of a media frenzy was pretty good but there was a huge air on inevitability of providing a fall guy for the media and the 'grey suits' seemed more interested in how it looked rather than the truth. And the book seemed to end before udnertanding what the connection with the German father of the disgraced politician which left me thinking ' is that it'

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on his flying stories, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eldorado Network (Kindle Edition)
I gave up on this after about 150 pages because quite frankly I thought the 'hreo' Luis was a complete idiot
I imagined a story set in the Spanish Civil War would be interesting but once I'd read the recruitment section where he tries to get a job with the British and then the Germans I though I am missing something here because the wisecracking style jsut did not work for me in this context.
In contrast to the flying stories where you can imagine the jokes would be a way of dealing with the immediate prospect of death, in this one the main character just seemed very very shallow
I'll keep up the reading of the flying stories but this series is not for me I think - shame because his stories are usally excellent
