The Age of Doubt (Inspector Montalbano Mysteries)
The Age of Doubt (Inspector Montalbano Mysteries)
by Andrea Camilleri
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars The Age of Doubt, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always enjoy Andrea Camilleri's books and the insight into life in Sicily. You always wonder where Montalbano is going but he always gets there in the end. I found that he was a bit too introspective this time but perhaps that is a natural progression as he ages. I was always recommend him to readers that like something a bit different from the normal crime books.


The Secrets of the Lighthouse
The Secrets of the Lighthouse
by Santa Montefiore
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Secrets of the Lighthouse, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Santa Montefiore never disapoints. I was a bit unsure about the location as often you get too much Irish chitchat and not enough background in novels based in Ireland. However this was not the case. This was a book that once it was finished I had a nice warm glow and felt that the world was in order for at least a short time.

This review is from: The Three Evangelists (Paperback)
Not as good as the previous novel by Fred Vargas. If this was the first book that I had read I wouldn't bother to read another one.

Fantastic as usual. I haven't quite finished the book and as usual it is really difficult to put down. It is interesting to read about Erast's previous life.

I have really enjoyed all the previous books but I was disappointed with this one. I found that I really wasn't bothered what happened to him this time. Hopefully the next book will be up to the original standard.
