1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish...., 26 Nov. 2010
This review is from: The Suicide Club (Paperback)
This was a book that our Book Group read and all of us throught it was rubbish. It was like badly written teen fiction with nothing to grab you or convince you. Please don't waste time reading this when there are so many good books out there.
This is Skins (the main character is even called Freddie) mixed with the Bridgend suicides - but not in a good way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 30 July 2008
I've been a Cussler fan for over 30 years and have hugely enjoyed most of his books but this was a real stinker. The science regarding the hurricane generator was nonsense and it felt like it had been sponsored by ESSO or George Bush. Perhaps I'm just getting too old for this stuff...

4.0 out of 5 stars All good stuff but read it all before......., 3 Mar. 2008
Difficult to rate this one. I would have to be five stars for anyone who has not read George's articles in the Guardian or on his website. But, being an avid Monbiot fan I was disappointed, having ordered a copy, to realise that it was just a collection of his articles (mostly weekly essays in the Guardian) which I'd already read. This wasn't clear in the blurb I'd read describing the book. But if you haven't read much (or any) of George's excellent writing prepare to learn and be challenged. His writing is vivid, radical and wide ranging.
