Red Gold: A Novel (Night Soldiers)
Red Gold: A Novel (Night Soldiers)
Price: £8.42

5.0 out of 5 stars Wartime noir, 13 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Furst's style is very addictive, the tension is very real and the characters real if rather too similar book to book. Think dark , skinny chaps who keep their thoughts to themselves, instinctively brave and popular with the ladies. But that said I can't get enough of them.

If you are going to put together a san francisco compilation then you might at least make a decent selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars great writer , not typical of his work, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night Soldiers (Kindle Edition)
This book by Furst is notable for its plot which is extremely interesting as it moves through time and place. It has a different feel to his usual offerings even if you know that the leading character is going to survive ,( sorry if that spoils anything , but in Furst's books they always do ) and that he is thin and dark and women like him...they always do.
Furst is a really good writer and if you have a taste for the cloak and dagger of wartime espionage , then you will love this. The research would seem to be of the highest order and if this is your first book by this writer then you have a real treat to come because there are many more of similar quality to look forward to.

Another lawyer hero but a vaguely interesting one. I will probably buy another in the series at some point if the price is right.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shalow and predictable, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is memorable for the level of violence and the dislikeable nature of the characters even the hero. The characterisation was poor . If you like cruising and are stuck in an airport for 5hours and this is lying on an empty chair, I would read it otherwise don't bother.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this series, and the 3rd was a lot better written than the first. Good characterisation and plot . I will definitely be interested in reading the writers next offering especially if he maintains the improvement.

Writing not that fantastic but good pace and you want to know what happens and the characters are reasonably believable

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Book terrible service initially, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered a hard-back copy of this book in excellent condition. What arrived was a paperback copy in shockingly poor condition. Creased cover and heavy biro inscriptions and library stamps on first 6 pages. After several Emails which got me nowhere , I telephoned the seller who agreed to refund my purchase price and said I could keep the book or give it to a charity shop.
As i wanted the book for reference I have kept it. Thus the outcome was satisfactory but I dont have a beautiful book. My decision to choose a second hand copy was because the new edition has digitally copied photos that do not reflect the accuracy of the original photos in the earlier edition of this classic book.
This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in mushrooms and fungi . My interests lie in the culinary uses and it is the wonderful photographs of species taken in their natural habitats that make this so useful. I have other books which show other species that one might mistake an edible variety for which when used in conjunction with this book ( ie looking at the photos of these other varieties) make it hopefully , foolproof.
This is a wonderful book and I will probably try and get a hard back copy in better codition at some point.
