3.0 out of 5 stars slow paced, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Little Shadows (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I let my friend read this first as I had lots to read so this is her review.

It was a slow book to read and she found it quite boring so didn't finish it.
Didn't like the way it was written

3.0 out of 5 stars predictable, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: Day of the Dead (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was an ok read, it was a little pacy but the whole story was predictable,so found myself wanting it to end so didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

It is a book you can pick up and put down whilst waiting for something better to come along to read

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: Origin (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Never read a SF based book before but do enjoy a bit of the weird and conspiracy theories so having read previous reviews felt it was worth a read.

It was a great read,thoroughly enjoyed it. yes it isn't going to win any major prizes for the story plot-been done many times before, but it keeps you going right until the end of the book.

I agree with other reviews, the story is a little unbelievable at times,as are the characters, but isn't that what SF is all about.

Enjoyable book for people who don't take SF too seriously as it is a bit tongue in cheek.


Sutton
Sutton
by J. R. Moehringer
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: Sutton (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having read other reviews on this book I was a little apprehensive about ordering it. I'm glad I did, thoroughly enjoyed it,well written and I didn't realise it was based on a real person.

Captivating read, descriptions of characters and events made you feel as if you were there.

Interesting how after all these years we still want to read about this time in our past but it's like we are drawn to it.

Great book, well worth reading


Stranger In The Room (Keye Street 2)
Stranger In The Room (Keye Street 2)
by Amanda Kyle Williams
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.56

3.0 out of 5 stars ok read, 5 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having read a lot of crime type stories, i felt I had to order this as not read any other books by this author.
I enjoyed reading this and the writing was well done, but felt the story was a bit predictable and why do authors always make female detectives have many flaws and not likeable as characters- not all women are flawed..

It was an average story but will try another book by this author


The Boys In The Boat
The Boys In The Boat
by Daniel James Brown
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Story, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Boys In The Boat (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book was wonderfully written. It tells the true story of a rowing team who want to compete in the 1936 Olympics during Hitlers Berlin. It is retold from the perspective of one of the team-Joe Rantz,how he overcame hardship and poverty to be able to afford university and become part of the rowing team.

I don't know much about rowing, but feel Daniel James Brown has captured the commitment,hard work and dedication needed to succeed in the sport without boring you.
It also gives you an insight to Berlin under Hitlers regime and America during the depression.

Truly inspirational story, which shows anyone can succeed if they work hard,regardless of their past

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I enjoyed reading this book. It had me hooked from start to finish.

It tells the story of Rachel who moves back to Pennsylvania to rebuild her families horse farm, but someone doesn't want her there, scared of what she may find out.....

I thought it was well written,though a bit predictable at times.
Well worth reading,


The Girl You Left Behind
The Girl You Left Behind
by Jojo Moyes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 5 Aug 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've not read anything by Jo Jo Moyles before but decided to give it a go.

This book is written well, though I found it hard to get in to towards the end.

First part of the book was engaging but felt it started to tail off when set in the present.

Not a classic for me but I'm sure others will find it a great book


You Had Me At Hello
You Had Me At Hello
by Mhairi McFarlane
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: You Had Me At Hello (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed reading this book. It reminded me a bit of 'One Fine Day' by David Nicholls.
Fun to read,though emotional when it needed to be, but it's not over the top.

Loved the fact that the past and present were linked and you knew what had gone on in the past,so many books don't explain enough about the past and you end up wondering about it.

Well written, flowed well,plenty of history and details on the characters; how they met and their lives

Great book which will want you reading it in one sitting
