The Salesman
The Salesman

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird, 26 Jan 2004
This review is from: The Salesman (Paperback)
What a strange book. The first 100 or so pages the book moves along effortless telling the tale of a man and his daughter who is left in a coma following an armed robbery. Interesting , free flowing and reasonably predictably moving the story onwards. Then wallop!! the story takes unexpected turns , one after another. I found this book to be a very interesting read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 14 Jan 2004
This review is from: Night Probe! (Paperback)
O.K. so it is a real stretch to get past the problem of a book with the hero having the ridiculous name of "Dirk Pitt" (if I had known that I would not have even bought the book) but despite that this book is remarlably entertaining.
Not the hardest or even most literate of reads , rather an entertaining and easy read.
If you are looking for a book just to entertain you without to much of a challenge this book is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a comfortable read , but very rewarding, 14 Jan 2004
This review is from: Dangerous Parking (Paperback)
A fine book by a man suffering from Cancer. Full of humour and without the sentimental self pity which would be understanding under the circumstances.
By no means an easy read but a very rewarding insight into life, death , illness , drugs, alcoholism , lesbianism , relationships etc
Very good

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Average, 5 Jan 2004
This review is from: Reversible Errors (Paperback)
I last read a Turow book some years ago and returned to him as an author with this effort.
What has happened in the last few years ?
I found this book like treading through treacle. It was slow and worse still boring. No twists ,turns excitement at all, instead it seemed to concentrate on rather elongated love stories.
Sad to say I will not be looking out for the next effort from this author

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, 2 Jan 2004
Having seen Fleetwood Mac in a great live concert in Belfast 2003 I bought this greatest hits CD and it lived up to my expectations. Like almost everyone else on the planet I already had somme Fleetwood Mac in my collection (In my case Rumours and Tusk)but this CD brings the best of those plus some essential tracks which were missing from my collection such as Gypsy and Rhiannon.
If you do not own any Fleetwood Mac this is a great CD to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 2 Jan 2004
Having never bought an REM record I thought I would give this greatest hits CD a try. Wow it is great! From the typical REM track such as "Man on the Moon" to the definitive "Everybody Hurts" this is a first class CD. I listen to it constantly in my car and get more from it with each listening.
I am now a converted REM fan

4.0 out of 5 stars Great New Talent, 29 Dec 2003
This review is from: Introduction (Audio CD)
What a great debut CD from Alex Parks winner of BBC's Fame Academy 2003. Starts off with the superb "Maybe that's what it takes" , introduces us to some new material and includes some fantastic renditions of cover versions such as "Yellow" (Better than the original)and Mad World (Great Version). Can not wait to see what Alex does from here - 1 CD wonder or genuine star , in my mind it will be the latter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb, 10 Dec 2003
As the General Manager of a Golf Club I have recommended this book to a number of staff, members and friends and dozens of copies have been circulating around the Club. This book is simply superb , a social commentary of the ealry days of the game and yet a compelling story involving dozens of players. Mark Frost gets inside the head of players and explains what motivated them. I totally defy anyone who plays the game of golf not to enjoy this book. Buy it immediately for yourself or for any relative who plays golf

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 2 Dec 2003
This review is from: Angels And Demons (Paperback)
Another great read from Dan Brown. The first three quarters of this book are top class my only critisism comes with the end. It's not that the end was unenjoyable or that it failed to surprise (because it certainly did) , it's just that it seemed to stretch believabilty to breaking point. O.K so maybe give some poetic licence and afterall the rest of the book seems to stretch credibility as well. Overall though this book is still a very enjoyable reading which manages to combine Art,History, Site seeing Religion and Intrigue in a great roller coaster of a ride

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 12 Nov 2003
This review is from: The Winner (Paperback)
I have bought a couple of David Baldacci books and always try to find excuses not to start them. Of course as soon as I get round to it I am always surprised when they are so good.
This is a superb book - A fantastic page gripping start , sags just a little in the middle and a great ending.
I defy you not to enjoy this book
