Everyone Loves You When You're Dead: (and Other Things I Learned From Famous People)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not great either, 6 Nov 2012
This was an average read. It started well, but after the first 100 pages it began to get a bit tedious. There were a lot of interviews with Z-Celebrities, complete unknowns - they could have been interviews with anyone!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful stuff, 6 Nov 2012
An absolutely terrible book. It really felt like the author texted this in - poorly written, no interesting characters, constant repetition of the same sentences. The novels with Myron Bolitar are miles ahead of this book. Very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing read, 6 Nov 2012
Having bought this with great anticipation, this was a most disappointing read. While it generally follows the model & flow of the other Jack Reacher books, it falls down with the lack of action. The story was good with some interesting turns - but if it wasn't a JR book I would have stopped half-way through. It felt like a half-hearted effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 13 Oct 2011

This was one of the better Scandanavian thrillers that I have read in some time. A good solid story with some nice twists and good story structure. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tagine Success, 13 Oct 2011
Produced excellent results. For the hob only, the heavy base works well & the ceramic lid ensures the cooking as needed. Delivery was speedy too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good thriller, 29 Sep 2010
This review is from: Dead Man's Footsteps (Paperback)
This was my first Peter James book & I was quite impressed. It is an enjoyable, gritty read that keeps you interested in the overall plot & the interlinking stories. It was perhaps a bit drawn out towards the end, and you have to keep an eye on which month/year is headed on the chapters. I already have his latest novel so looking forward to more of the same!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor product, 28 Sep 2010
I was very disappointed after paying quite a lot for this product. It had several features that failed to live up to their promise. It was not simply plug and play - it took over 5 hours with the "help-desk" to try to get this set up without any success. I eventually figured it out through trial-and-error (the machine has an issue with the WPA key being greater than 12 characters!). It will not work with a PC with the home version of Windows 7. You need to turn off all your security & anti-virus to get it working. You cannot delete folders once set up. Transferring data takes an age & often falls over in the process. Many of my songs were listed as unplayable due to their format - mp3s & WMAs. Same with the video formats - I found the only option was to play it from the PC, so why have a hard-drive? It failed to work with PlayOn from one PC & from the other it dropped it after ten minutes. The Netgear forums are particularly useless unless you can find a fellow user with the same problem. YouTube functionality has only started to work this week. Many media channels are not available outside the US so avoid if in EMEA. The PC Access functionality was a joke. Why not include an internet browser & streaming functionality?

Overall, the problem is never with the machine but with your router, anti-virus, firewall settings, or something else. There are better machines at cheaper prices.


Bounce: How Champions are Made

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read, 28 Sep 2010
This was a well-written & entertaining read. It provides a nice high-level view of the subject matter without getting too bogged down in the scientific detail. It links in with Malcolm Gladwell's latest book, building on this, & expanding some of the points. It does take a slight tangent towards the end but was still interesting. Well worth getting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Maybe I just didn't get it ..., 28 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Blindfold (Paperback)
Unlike many of the other reviewers, I only read the book once - and once was enough for me. A collection of various incidences linked to the central character. No real explanation what links them, and I struggled to finish it in the end or even care for the main character. I like to reread books that are good - I don't believe it should be necessary to reread one that made no sense. I would avoid.
