Through Phantom Eyes: Volume Three
Through Phantom Eyes: Volume Three
by Bruns Theodora Bruns
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.08

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC ERIC AND HIS FRIEND THE DAROGA, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Book three of a brilliant series. Eric's journey in this book takes us to Persia where he builds the Shah an opulent palace but at a great price to his (Eric's) health and sanity. Depths of despair to utter joy to complete misery again and again, Eric keeps us hooked from the first word to the last. He finds love in a place and with someone whom he thought it would be impossible, but then.... (no spoilers here! Just read it for yourself). Go on this next journey with Eric and his friend, Oded

5.0 out of 5 stars ERIC'S NEXT JOURNEY - WELL WORTH THE READ, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Eric's tale from childhood to late teens/early twenties is a great continuation in this fabulous series. Ms Bruns has really gone into detail with this next episode. "Edge of the seat" reading. I have even got my Mum to read this series and she too is enjoying them. Keep them coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars SECRET DOOR WITH A TWIST!, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this book! So different from the usual Phantom stories. No problem in getting your "head around" the going backwards and forwards in time with the story, very easy to follow and a surprising ending! Won't spoil it for other readers, but this is a twist on the "common" ending of Eric and Christine. Well worth the read, different, but worth it.

This review is from: Monty's Memories (DVD)
Monty Roberts is a genius when it comes to understanding horses. I could watch him for ages. Slight hissing sound on the disc, but doesn't last too long to be a distraction. Lovely DVD showing the story of this favourite horses over the years. Thoroughly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE WOLF!, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Wolf Called Romeo (Paperback)
What a beautiful true story of a beautiful wolf. I love wolves and this is at the top of my reading list. The wolf in question, Romeo, pictured on the cover, is an amazing animal who befriends various dogs whilst out on their daily meanderings with their owners. There are some dogs that Romeo befriends easily, without any ulterior motive other than wanting to be friends. Other dogs (perhaps their owners don't help), Romeo doesn't want to know and therefore runs away. As usual, there are the bad guys who can't wait to "bag" a wolf hide!! Uplifting, funny and sad, a brilliant book relating the account of a wolf who just wanted to be a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars ERIC COMES ALIVE!, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow!! I have always been a fan of The Phantom having read the original story by Gaston Leroux and each follow on story, but this first edition of a series of 5 books (so far?) is on another level. Amazing story telling by a brilliant author, this first book captures Eric's sad but fascinating life from 2yrs up to around 10. Am already on book 2, and waiting for book 3 to arrive in the post. Although only a story from the author's imagination, the writing is that good you can feel so much pity for Eric, coupled with frustration and anger at his tormentors. His only steadying influence is his father, who has the patience of Job!! - but who loves him regardless. Who sees the beauty in his little boy rather than the deformed face. This is a MUST read for any Phantom fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD STORY TELLING, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Only Witness (Paperback)
As a lover of gorillas I thought I would give this book a go to see what it was like (sign language ape, et al). Very good read. Seeing as there is gorilla in the States that knows American Sign Language (Koko), I could well envisage this story. When I get round to it, I intend to buy the following on from this book to see how all the characters are fairing

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Could Pee on This (Hardcover)
What some fantastic poems! This little book is on my coffee table for me (or anyone else who comes round) to pick up and read when I want a good laugh. And laugh I did - out loud - especially the poem that is the title of the book. Another one ended with claws going down the eyelids so as to wake the person up!! If you've got cats, you'll know exactly what I mean! Brilliant read.

What can one say? Beautiful pictures of what is, in my humble opinion, one of the most fantastic animals in the world!! I love anything to do with cats, so this was a lovely book. Beautiful pictures all round.
