Rather thin story lines perhaps it is time to drop this series

I found this book a little tedious and struggled to finish it - most unusual for a Rory Clements book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather stilted, 21 April 2015
This review is from: Tangled Roots (Kindle Edition)
Although rather stilted and with somewhat strange narrative at times, the story line is good. The English appears stilted and rather long-winded. The author would benefit from the services of a good editor prior to publication. He would also benefit from better understanding of how to research family history in Britain.

I feel this series has run its course. This book has a rather laboured plot and I felt lacked detailed well developed characters.

Delivered very promptly in good condition. It was difficult to attach cord to the lens cap as the hole was too small. It was necessary to make the hole larger.

Slow Train to Guantanamo: A Rail Odyssey Through Cuba in the Last Days of the Castros
Price: £4.68

5.0 out of 5 stars which made it easy to read, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has made me realise that train travel in Cuba is only for the very adventurous and those with a reasonable degree of Spanish! However, it also gives an insight into Cuba as it is and makes me want to visit some of the places he visited. A very well written book, which made it easy to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Murder Bag (Kindle Edition)
The plot is a little thin and the story is padded out with the not altogether successful ploy of giving the main character a family background. DC Wolfe is not quite believable, even within the genre of crime writing. I'm not sure if I missed some facts about his background, but it does not seem likely that a police constable could afford to live in central London, pay for help with his child and run his car!

Having heard the author interviewed at the Hay Festival I can see where his character's attachment to his dog and to boxing come from and although I found this book somewhat tedious I hope his next book will be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much violence!, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a genealogist I found the story interesting, but felt that the level of violence was somewhat excessive and unnecessary. I think it would not be an easy read for those without some knowledge of genealogy.
