Brilliant film, but horribly bleak and disturbing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't sure I was going to like this, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
But I did! Even without the storyline, the description and imagination of the circus is truely wonderful. I did on occassion find the movement in time between the chapters a bit confusing, but that's probably just me trying to read too quickly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on form after Whispers Underground, 30 July 2013

I liked Nightingale being a bit more involved in this one and the underlying central plot was pulled together nicely. Rivers 4 has a good pace and ooooooh such a twisty twist at the end! I never saw that coming...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not one of his best, but certainly a bang rather than a whimper, 30 July 2013

This review is from: The Quarry (Kindle Edition)
There was always going to be some element of biting the final thumb at the establishment in Bank's final novel. In Guy, Banks created a character with whom it's hard to pity or sympathise, but the absolute, undignified fury and contempt for his condition and the semi-autobiographical outbursts on Banks' political view of the world put a wry smile on my face.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought in haste, 30 July 2013

This review is from: The Snow Child (Kindle Edition)
I'll be totally open about this: I bought it in haste before heading out the door for a weekend of camping with a long journey at either end, knowing I was going to run out of reading material. I'd just finished reading the NIght Circus and this was recommended, had high reviews and had won an award so I thought I'd take a punt.

To be fair, it has some beautiful prose that evoke the Alaskian setting but I didn't like the storyline and didn't empathise with the characters. I realise it's meant to be a period piece so the role of the women is outmoded, but I found the heavy focus on the couple being childless uninteresting. I got frustrated that the book never committed itself to being straight fiction or fantasy. I didn't like the end at all, but won't go into detail as I'm struggling to explain why without totally spoiling it for those who will enjoy this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars I quit at 53%!, 10 April 2012

This review is from: Pure (Kindle Edition)
I just can't go on forcing myself to read this any longer! Several reviewers have praised it's worth as a 'historical novel' worthy of Zola or Victor Hugo. It feels like a deliberate mimickry that is intentionally slow in getting where it's going, but failed to sustain any dramatic tension for me. Half way through and I couldn't care less for any of the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, but broke within four weeks!, 5 April 2012

This is a neat, good looking, easy to use hard drive. I got one to back up my lap top in January. Sadly after about half a dozen uses the usb 'socket' inside came loose from the casing. Am currently seeking a replacement from Toshiba...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, short life span!, 5 April 2012
This is a really good product. I first bought one in summer 2006, but the volume button stopped working two months out of guarantee in 2008. I called Pure and they were excellent: told me not to worry about it being out of guarantee and sent out a new one within days of my returning the broken one. I loved everything about this clock radio. It looks good, it's easy to use, updates itself and never let me down until a few weeks ago when I came back off holiday and it had suddenly stopped working... Sadly well out of guarantee and I'm not about to buy a third one when two have already stopped working rather sooner than I'd expected.
