Denis Law: My Life in Football
by Denis Law
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Long live the King!, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is so refreshing to find a football autobiography that isn't boring or pretentious or full of swear words.
Great photographs and lots of funny anecdotes make this s great football book as well as bringing backs lots of memories. I lost count of the number of times I would exclaim 'I was at that game!'
Thanks Denis!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!, 28 July 2013
This review is from: Sword and Scimitar (Paperback)
Sword and Scimitar
What a disappointment this book is. I was big fan of the Eagle series until Praetorian, which was below par, and my worst fears were realised with Sword and Scimitar. Sir Thomas is such an irritating character and the love story between him and Maria is so predictable its laughable. And as for the revelations about Richard, well my 8 year old granddaughter could see that one coming.
I did enjoy the battle sections, at least the author is still on form there and I appreciate the amount of research that has gone in to the siege of Malta. But, please Mr Scarrow, don't become the next Bernard Cornwell, churning a mediocre formulaic historical novel once a year, you are much better than that.
