The Devil's Punchbowl
The Devil's Punchbowl

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish, 26 Sep 2009
This review is from: The Devil's Punchbowl (Paperback)
Greg Iles' books have been going downhill for some time but this one is absolutely awful. The story would be ok if it wasn't for the obvious delight Iles gets from graphically describing scenes of dog fighting, rape and torture. His books have always been a great holiday read but this one was a step too far & he has shown himself to be one sick puppy

1.0 out of 5 stars another awful one from Greg iles, 4 Aug 2008
This review is from: True Evil (Paperback)
After the horrendously bad footprints of god I thought I'd give Greg Iles another chance. What a load of rubbish this book is, dont bother wasting your time - he's gone the same way as patricia cornwell and is now churning out rubbish not worth bothering with

State of Mind
State of Mind
by John Katzenbach
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets better as you go along, 1 May 2007
For the first half of this book l wasn't sure if l was reading the same thing as people who've reviewed it previously. I found it slow going and didnt find any of the characters particularly interesting or engaging, that said the book did slowly but surely start to gain my interest after about the half way point. If this had been my first or only John Katzenbach book l dont think l would bother seeking any more out, it was ok but l've enjoyed all his others much much more. Worth a read as long as you dont expect too much

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 27 Feb 2007
This review is from: The Analyst (Paperback)
I really really enjoyed this book, it has just enough twists and turns to keep you interested without becoming too fantastical. Brilliant, l will certainly be reading more books by this author and can recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery/thriller

2.0 out of 5 stars not great, 7 Feb 2007
This review is from: False Impression (Paperback)
I have been a fan of pretty much all of Jeffrey Archer's novels in a kind of nice to take on holiday for an easy read kind of way. This one follows pretty much his main theme of goodie being chased through various countries by baddie, the only problem being that in previous books it was clear to see why the goodie was bothering and where their resources came from. In this one l can't help asking myself why she would bother.....because she's honest & doesnt want anyone ripped off blah blah blah. If you got sacked from your job after suspecting your boss of fraud would you a) contact the police and make a statement or b) spend what little money you had left flying across the world to warn the 'victim' in person? This book is complete nonesense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 3 Jan 2007
This review is from: Degree Of Guilt (Paperback)
This was my first book by this author and l'm not quite sure what led me to pick this one up but l'm really glad l did.

The story is fast paced and drew me in until l found myself staying awake later and later so l could read one more chapter. Based on this book l will certainly be buying more of Richard North Patterson's books.
