5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable read, 10 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Salvation (Kindle Edition)
Salvation was a good book to just relax and enjoy. It packed in a lot of what was happening at the time. If I wanted to be critical, there were a large number of coincidental meetings of the main characters, but I preferred to just read and enjoy.

I'd had problems before with in car radio transmitters but I tried this one based on the excellent reviews. Initially, I experienced a problem but on contacting the company they immediately replaced the product free of charge and the replacement is absolutely fine - great sound, easy to operate. Very impressed.

A very easy to digest guide that really does help you find your feet (and save money) quickly when travelling in Portugal, or for those who live here as we now do. It will save you the purchase price many times over.

Very glad I didn't pay for this. After not being able to find my location, it then twice got it wrong, once even in the wrong country. Deleted.

Having fun hunting clues in pics and linking them up. Some dead easy, some quite tough. 'Hint' doesn't work very well and I would appreciate the option to skip a question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb historical fiction, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book had it all for me - a period of Irish history that I wanted to know more about, central characters with whom I could empathise and a great intertwining of real and fictional characters that frequently had me Googling for more background. Both in Dublin and Danzig, it was easy to feel you were there with them.
I would add that I normally retain a degree of detachment from what I am reading - at the end of the day its only fiction, isn't it - but on more than one occasion, I was feeling angry with the abuses of power portrayed in the book. That is testimony to how credible and realistic those scenarios were painted.
Needless to say, I've just bought the sequel, City of Strangers and am looking forward to another good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book let down by the ending, 2 Dec. 2013

This review is from: The Lewis Man (Kindle Edition)
The Lewis Man reminded me very quickly how much I had enjoyed The Black House. Peter May has an ability to transport you to the place, the scenery, the culture which really lets you get into the book, gives the characters an extra dimension and lets you feel that you are actually there.
All the more surprising therefore that the author really let himself down with a contrived ending that could have come straight out of the pages of a cheap novel. But I enjoyed the rest of the book so much that its still going to get 5 stars - I'll now take a short break before starting the Chess Man.

I can honestly say I haven't laughed out loud as much in a long while. I haven't had a cat for a while but there have been plenty in the family and my daughter owns a cattery - just loved the way in which the book humorously relates so much cat behaviour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb historical fiction, 18 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've followed Michael Ridpath's books across Iceland and high finance, so being a keen reader of alternative history, I bought this one immediately. All I can say is that it kept me captivated - it rated up there with the best for seamlessly integrating fact and fiction. At the same time, it created highly believable characters (with the possible exception of Sophie) and clicked along at a fair rate.
It was very easy to immerse yourself in this being reality and you as the reader being there with it all. Sorry I've finished it - a great read.
