My Via Dolorosa
My Via Dolorosa
Price: £2.20

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written and badly edited!, 11 May 2013
This review is from: My Via Dolorosa (Kindle Edition)
I had real high hopes for this story of one man finding his redemption through God. Unfortunately it is more a story of one man's continual whining about how unfair the world has been to him.
Add to this that from the mid-point on he appears to have forgotten how to edit his work, maybe suggesting a sense of boredom with his own project?
Either way, it is a truly terrible book, and I only gave it a star rating because Amazon's system insisted I do so.
Avoid at all cost!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go, Dave, Go!!, 29 Sept. 2011
Another work of great content from David Icke. Ridiculed for years by the media, but their ongoing campaign to discredit the man has failed. People are waking up to the truth, and David Icke continues to play a major role in that awakening.

5.0 out of 5 stars No one is laughing now., 19 July 2011
For a guy that has had to endure years of ridicule and scorn, David Icke has shown an amazing ammount of inner strength. This is quite possibly one of the most interesting books i've ever read, and for someone, who is continuously ridiculed by the media, Icke has too many answers for it all to be fabricated nonsense. Absolutely brilliant.


The Hidden (Leisure Horror)
The Hidden (Leisure Horror)

5.0 out of 5 stars A very talented writer, 20 Aug. 2010
This is the second of Sarah Pinborough's books that i have read, and i would have to say that she has a real talent for her craft.
The story deals with a number of murders, and also asks questions about the soul and what happens past the point of death. Miss Pinborough is not afraid to hammer home the violence and horror, although this is far from being a gore fest. Indeed her writing craft allows you to be rooting for your favourites to survive, because the author makes you care about her characters. A very good read indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars So annoyed, 19 Aug. 2010
I read this story with a degree of anticipation, with little doubt that Koonz would return to his earlier fine form, after the relatively dissapointing previous installment of his Frankenstein saga.
I was expecting this book to satisfactorily tie up a number of loose ends, something which it largely failed to do.
After reading hundreds of pages, only to find the revelation that the story would be concluded in another book which is to be published next year, i have to say that i was left with a degree of frustration... having said all of that, Koonz remains a master of his craft, and yes when the time comes i shall be purchasing the (hopefully) concluding episode of his Frankenstein series.

Absolutely fabulous book. excellent quality edition, and packed with superb content. Poe genuinely was the original master storyteller (at least in my humble opinion).

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing!, 19 July 2010
I'm sorry but I really don't get it? Sure we all know about the resounding success of the Harry Potter books, and fair play to J, K, Rowling for those, my children are huge fans, as i believe are most kids. But this latest effort is a real letdown.
The biggest problem is the size of the book, there are just not enough pages contained within it to constitute value for money. Indeed, if you were to remove the add on's at the end of each story (which surely would not have been missed, as they constituted little more than the inane ramblings of Dumbledore.) then the book would have been shown in it's true light. A poor attempt at filling the gap left by Harry Potter, pending the promised novel.
Come on, Miss Rowling, your fans deserve better than this.


Watchmen
Watchmen
by Alan Moore
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The best there is!, 19 July 2010
This review is from: Watchmen (Paperback)
Put quite simply, Watchmen is the greatest Graphic novel ever written. Furthermore, Alan Moore is right up there with the very best writers in the world (and i'm not just talking about the comics industry here).
The many layers within the book, that unfold as the story progresses, keep the story building at a rate that continues to build and build until its final moving climax.
Moores characterisation is exquisite, expanding his deeply floored (but all the more human for it) personalities in such a way that it is impossible for the reader not to care about them. Watchmen is one of only two books i have ever read (the other being Dean Koonz, Watchers), where i have actually been deeply upset at finishing the book, because the experience has been so enjoyable that i just wanted the story to go on and on.
For anyone who has never experienced Watchmen, do yourself a favour, pick up a copy and start reading, you won't be able to put it down again, i promise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Children of the gods?, 19 July 2010
After many years of promoting his Nibiru theory, Mr Sitchen's newest book is, I would suggest, a general summing up of his previous works, added together with some very important and interesting claims. To suggest that humans (as we know them today) came about because of the mixing of hominid/alien DNA, is not of course a new theory. Indeed, if it is actually true, then the lineage of kings that exists today is probably a direct result of these outside alien influences on our history.
Mr Sitchen, as always, writes in a style and manner that makes his arguments seem both valid and interesting, backed up by his many years of meticulous research. Accurate or not, his assertions are backed up by enough valid data that even the most skeptical of readers would surely struggle to not be intrigued. Those with an open mind will be left pondering for many days after finishing this book.
The claim that Puabi's remains could actually prove to be the missing link that proves a human/alien hybrid was the basis for our whole civilation, is fasinating. Hopefully the Natural History Museum (where those remains are stored), will stand up and be counted. It is in their hands to literally change our recorded history, but somehow i doubt they will be willing to accept the challenge.
All in all, a fasinating read.
