Mortal Coil (Skulduggery Pleasant - Book 5)
Mortal Coil (Skulduggery Pleasant - Book 5)

5.0 out of 5 stars Oy Landy! Get a move on!, 16 Nov 2010
Well, what can I say. I read the first in this series to my son as a bedtime story and several years later, he is reading them himself and I find I have to buy two books when they come out so that we don't fight over who gets to read it first!

All the books are excellent, but this 5th in the series takes the characters to a new level and do I detect the author is "maturing" them as the books go on which seems to be adding extra depth?

A truly superb piece of writing (all the books), they are simple enough for a 12 year old to easily read and enjoy and complex enough for a 44 year old dad to get a kick out of too. The only concern I have is how long the series will last!

Anyway Landy - get a move on, I don't want you keeping me waiting ages for the next installment like that Rowling woman did!! ;)

For anyone reading this thinking of whether they would be suitable - they would be suitable for anyone. Funny, serious, charming, hard faced; you get it all and something for everyone.

Big thumbs up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, well laid out, 23 July 2007
This review is from: Bass Tab White Pages (Paperback)
Bought this book a while ago and only just got round to looking at it. As a "basic" bass player I find it fantastic, with loads of well known songs. Many of the songs I will never play in the band, but they don't half make practice sessions more interesting.

I fully recommend this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent account of "daring do"..., 4 Jun 2007
This review is from: Vulcan 607 (Paperback)
The reviewer who stated that they missed the runway may like to read the book again!

This is a great story and describes the RAF's "minor" contribution to the Falklands war in gripping detail. Of course many people state that these raids would have been better launched using the Sea Harriers much closer to home, but as the book only slightly elludes to, the whole point was to make the Argentinians sit up and realise that even though the UK was thousands of miles away, they could still be hit. It must have scared them silly.

Overall the book is well written, but I find some the authors descriptions of people a little twee. They all come across as rather perfect "good eggs", and I think less sycophancy in this area would have made a smoother read (for me at least). It also seems to skirt certain issues in terms of RAF involvement and how the Navy might have felt and the overall effect of bombing the runaway on the Argies. It was all covered, but I felt these areas were a little light in places.

For anyone interested in history, aircraft, the RAF or the Falklands War, this is a great read and will leave you amazed that a team of men, trained to drop a nuclear bomb can in a matter of weeks retrain to drop convential weapons using an aircraft that was so old it was a wonder it would still fly with technology that came essentially from WWII. No matter that only one bomb hit the runway, it had a dramatic effect, not least the surprise that they got there and back AND hit anything at all! And that does not even consider the Victor pilots and the problems they had....

Personally I am glad that there are people who will do this type of thing so that I can sleep soundly at night!
