Imperium
Imperium
by Ryszard Kapuscinski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Imperium (Paperback)
Not a mere travel document! but more a meditation on the story of the old Soviet empire. They were years of terror and tragedy for many of the peoples involved. Kapuscinski was a man of deep understanding and compassion, who had a compulsion to travel, search,
talk to those people, and tell the story to the world.
I confess I was startled by some remarkably prescient observations.
I think anyone who is interested in their fellow human being would want to read this book.

The Return Of The Dancing Master
The Return Of The Dancing Master
Price: £3.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating plot, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The troubled main character, Lindman, is a detective we really come to care about. The story has an interesting background, related to the war years and Nazism. (In fact Mankell refers to the presence of neo-Nazism in Europe today). The plot reaches a climax in an exciting pursuit in the wilder northern part of Sweden, all cold winds, mist and snow. Another world.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... Weeks is rude and bigoted - he's also a good detective, writes a novel, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Detective Oliver Wendell Weeks is rude and bigoted - he's also a good detective, writes a novel, and is Ed McBain's best character ever. I just love him, and only regret there are only a few stories in which he appears. This story is absolutely not to be missed. It's got Ollie and our favourite 87th Precinct crew.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great plot, great character., 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The main character , detective inspector Charlie Priest, really grows on you. He's great at his demanding job of solving murders, but it's not all just about the plot, good as this is. Charlie emerges as a human being with real emotions and failings. I'm looking forward to catching up on the cases as yet unread.

I found this book a fascinating portrait of a beautiful woman and the age in which she lived. If you are interested in the period between the two world wars, then do not miss this novel by one of the famous Mitford sisters.
