5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!! Well researched, thought-provoking, unputdownable., 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really excellent read. The characters and storyline are believable and you can empathise with both sides. Not the usual good guys versus bad guys but truly thought-provoking. Well researched and very well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 18 Dec. 2014
I enjoyed reading this book. Based on a mixture of historical facts and the author's experience growing up in Singapore it shows life in Singapore in the 1960s as it might have been with espionage, intrigue and guerrilla fighting. A fast moving exciting novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars The quirky humour is not for me., 3 July 2014

Sorry, but the quirky humour just got too much in the end and I couldn't even finish it. Some readers might love it but it's not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was quite surprised, it's very good., 27 Jun. 2014

This review is from: JET - Ops Files (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this action thriller. The heroine, if you can call her that, goes through life scattering bodies of the baddies in all directions. But somehow the violence is acceptable. She's a bit like a female version of James Bond but less self satisfied and smarmy. A nicer character really.

1.0 out of 5 stars I found it not worth reading, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did manage to finish it but only just. The plot, storyline, characters all seemed quite unbelievable and trivialized. Even the locations seem trivialized.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly good read but rather far fetched., 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book through to the end because I really wanted to know how it all turned out! So yes it is a gripping story, but I found the characters and storyline quite unbelievable, and even more so as it reaches its conclusion.

Read this book for the third, time but even when you what will happen next, the characters, locations and storyline are so brilliantly written that I just loved reading it again. Superb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Huge collection, incredible value, interesting to read, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this immense collection of stories for the view they give of how the world , and science, was seen in the 1800s to 1930s. You can smile at some of their ideas but other items are seen as news items today. Well worth ploughing through it.


BULLDOG DRUMMOND: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION (Annotated and With Active Table of Contents)
BULLDOG DRUMMOND: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION (Annotated and With Active Table of Contents)
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking good read!, 24 Nov. 2013
Certainly not "politically correct" by today's standards but fiendish plots are exposed and the arch villains are dealt with in a satisfying manner. It reminded me of Dick Barton! Fascinating insights into the concerns of the times - from a communist. takeover after World War 1 to the possibility of a future second world war in the late 1930s. The complete collection is incredible value for money.
