A slow start, but I am enjoying this very much. Spaenende, og meget interesant. (Jeg har det svaert med at skrive paa dansk.) The characterization is good, and the characters so absorbing that you almost cease to care about Who-dunnit!

Les 4 fils du Dr March: Thriller (French Edition)

2.0 out of 5 stars Pas besoin de le lire deux fois!, 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Franchement un peu ennuyeux! J'en ai lu la moitie et je n'ai pas envie de le finir. I am finding the plot more than a little contrived. Switching between the villain and another person as the narrator does not work happily for me. But the language of the book is not difficult so if you are in need of some modern French in a book which can be read quickly this may suit you. So I am not giving details of the plot - such as it is!!

The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island (Bryson)
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good recreational stuff, 20 May 2016

Not quite such a good read as Notes from a Small Island, but entertaining nonetheless - the sort of book you would want at your bedside when you need to cheer yourself up during a bout of flu. Good fun and with no pretensions to be anything else.

Archbold's pleading, evidence, & practice in criminal cases

1.0 out of 5 stars Unsuitable for kindle, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was really excited when I saw this was on kindle, but alas, no index so it is virtually useless. You need a good search mechanism to make good use of this very detailed reference book.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Danish is clear and the book is well written from the point of view of style. But it suffers from a major defect: the author is describing what happens in an assault from the point of view of a number of participants, who each tell their stories separately. Unfortunately, the result of this technique is that it is repetitive and is frustrating.


A wing beat in eternity: A novel about a terrorist attack (Danish Edition)
A wing beat in eternity: A novel about a terrorist attack (Danish Edition)
Price: £3.64

4.0 out of 5 stars A thriller with a difference, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written in good clear Danish with not too much slang or idiom. It is an interesting device juxtaposing a youngster infected with Nazi ideas and an Islamic female extremist, and retaining the reader's sympathy for both. Please Amazon, keep making it possible to get Danish fiction on kindle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as useful as expected, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I downloaded this it didn't go to the dictionaries section, and it was pretty hopeless trying to search for words. It came out as a normal book which you would actually read from cover to cover. I then put it onto my older-style kindle. It still doesn't behave like a dictionary, but it is just possible to search in it using "find". Either there is some special way of using this, or else it really isn't kindle-friendly.

An exceptional film, said to be based on real events. I hope Amazon will continue to make it possible to order Polish films.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good follow-up to previous Ruth Galloway books, 13 Mar. 2016

I liked the background of Walsingham, and as usual with her books it was full of atmosphere. It was an enjoyable read and though she is starting to write to a formula I hope we can look forward to following her heroine as her daughter gets older.
