Poetic Justice (Kate Fansler Novels (Paperback))
Poetic Justice (Kate Fansler Novels (Paperback))
by Amanda Cross
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 1960's academia mixed with detection, 25 Aug. 2012
This book is as much a discussion about 1960's academia - student uprisings and all - as it is a detective novel. On that basis, if you don't like novels set in university surroundings (academics, literature and all) then this is probably best avoided. Kate Fansler is an an amateur detective in the golden-age tradition, but she's also an academic - she's a literature professor, so the book is unsurprisingly reflective of this, particularly as it's set in the university.

It's not the best of the Kate Fansler books (it's not perhaps as well paced as some others) but it's still good - well drawn characters, in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just in case you get confused by th other reviews, 26 July 2011
This is a history book, looking at a clinic and doctor in Paris over 100 years ago. The other reviews refer to a short comment in an epilogue suggested by the publisher - this is not, nor is it intended to be, a book about specific illnesses.

Again, it's a history book - fascinating and well-written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shreds well, empties badly, 9 Oct. 2010
Works well enough in terms of shredding; however, the basket is a pain in the neck as it scatters confetti all over the place on emptying it unless you empty it when the basket is only half-full (because the back of the basket is much lower than the front), which is tiresome.
