The Vice Of Virtue (A Poor Man at the Gate Series, Book 10)
The Vice Of Virtue (A Poor Man at the Gate Series, Book 10)
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A well crafted family saga, 26 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well crafted family saga. I have now read all 10 volumes and enjoyed them all. There is continued action in what to me appears good historical content. The constant jumping between different strands of the story makes for some work to realise who is being described but also adds to the interest.

The Wasteland Chronicles: Omnibus Edition (Books 1-3)
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Exciting but lacking believable science, 18 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An exciting adventure story with action on every page. However the science behind the story is very poor especially the biology. The limits of the human frame are exaggerated to an enormous extent and the aliens are unbelievable. Also the author assumes that North America is the whole of earth and that in an invasion from space nothing else would matter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historic Sex and Violence well writen, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sexually explicit violent and tragic novel of a type I would not normally go near. However I have dealings in China now and I decided to read this to better understand the background of the people. I was enthralled by the quality of the writing and I certainly learned a lot about the background of the country and especially of its people. I was able to follow up the story by googling several points and checking how much was fiction far better than dry study.

A ripping adventure yarn with Flashman playing all his old tricks. The novel also gives an insight into the political and military beginings of modern Canada. A very pleasurable read with real interest.

This review is from: The Comedy Hotel (Kindle Edition)
An amusing book with no serious content. Ideal for summer holiday reading. The story will resonate with anyone who has run a small business and had to deal with banks and accountants.


Midshipman Rundel (The Rundel Series Book 2)
Midshipman Rundel (The Rundel Series Book 2)
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Rundel is not a Hornblower or an Aubrey but his adventures make good reading., 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The facts in this book appear to be historically accurate but the characterisation is very simple and the harshness of the time is skimmed over. However for someone who is interested in the Napoleonic War it gives a very readable way of revisiting the early stages of the conflict. Rundel is not a Hornblower or an Aubrey but his adventures make good reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historically interesting, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Historically this book is very interesting. It appears to be well researched but the story suffers from the need to be accurate in the detail. However I still enjoyed the book and bought the next one in the series.

William C Russell writes with a true Victorian morality and adds to his very exciting yarns a social history which makes this book doubly well worth reading.

I Think I Really Do Have An Ulcer (Napoleon's Spanish Ulcer Book 6)
Price: £2.86

3.0 out of 5 stars Exciting but fantastic story., 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful idea allowed to get out of hand. Too many complications and too large a concept to have ever been practical. It needs a good map and a notebook to keep abreast of the story. However it does work as a work of exciting fantasy fiction.
