Too long. The story started well but this tomb went on too long and consequently lost it's power to hold my attention.

This review is from: The Railway Man (Kindle Edition)
What a powerful story of triumph over adversity and forgiveness over revenge. The clarity of the writing also helped to evoke a personally experienced account of war which held my attention thoughout, despite the very harrowing accounts of hardship and violence. A great novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars No thanks!, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The very cumbersome language combined with the amoral, animalistic qualities of Merivel made this book unreadable. It's rare that I find a book so unpleasant and pointless that I don't complete it.

Price: £3.49

4.0 out of 5 stars A good choice, 20 Oct. 2014

A clearly written guide to Dickens' world. Excerpts from the novels help to contextualise the Victorian architecture, bringing the routes to life. We will enjoy following the routes round London.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read, 20 Sept. 2014

this is a good holiday read made better by being set in actual and familiar parts of London, particualrly the bit set around Shad Thames. I liked this and could imagine it as a film.

A good read. A story about the psychological damage caused by trauma and guilt.
