5.0 out of 5 stars Another five star book from Rosie Morgan., 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like her first book, Rosie Morgan’s second book in the Camelot Inheritance series was superb. The Time Smugglers introduces some interesting concepts and dimensions, as well as some new characters, maintaining your interest from start to finish. This book may have been written for the younger market, but it is equally appealing to adults as well. I would thoroughly recommend it: another five star book from Rosie Morgan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must buy" for all business owners, 31 Oct 2013
I work with firms of accountants across the UK helping them to comply with regulations, improve their efficiency and increase profitability. I was delighted when Peter asked me to write a forward for his new book. This is what I wrote:
'There are many ways to improve the profitability of your business but reviewing your pricing has the greatest and fastest impact. And yet most business owners and their advisers ignore it, assuming that in a competitive environment there's little they can do about it. Nothing could be further from the truth. If profit improvement is your goal then this book is the best guide I have come across. Peter Hill has more experience in the field of pricing than anyone else I have come across. In "Pricing for Profit" he presents his findings from many years of helping clients improve their profits. His book is not full of business jargon. Instead, he explains pricing in clear English that is accessible to everyone. This is a "must buy" for all business owners, accountants and business advisors.'

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Ken Follett's usual standard, 8 May 2013

This review is from: Paper Money (Kindle Edition)
Surprisingly for Ken Follett this was just an OK story with weak ending. I'm glad it wasn't the first of his books that I'd read otherwise I would have missed some truly great novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 1 May 2013
The story was well written as you would expect from Ken Follett. However, they should hire a better proof reader given all (often written ail) the typing mistakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 14 April 2013

Winter of the World is a great continuation of the trilogy, following the families from the first book through the post World War 1 era, through World War 2 and on into the cold war. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly why I'm enjoying it so much, but I'm going through this trilogy much faster than I normally read novels. For some reason I just keep picking it up again and carrying on!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to the trilogy, 20 Mar 2013
A really great read and looking forward to the other books. So, why not five stars? Well, for me five stars are reserved for really exceptional books like "Pillars of the earth".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to what is hopefully if great series, 20 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rosie Morgan's children's book, Arthur and the Last Knight, is a great read for adults as well. It kept me interested and engaged throughout, waiting to see what happened next.

In the book Arthur and his two friends find rather unusual things suddenly happening around them. As things progress it seems that the past is breaking through to the present, in the classic battle of good against evil. This novel is based in and around Bodmin Moor in Cornwall and provides links to the legend of King Arthur and his knights.

It's clear that this is the first of what will become a series, so I'm really looking forward to Rosie Morgan writing the next instalment to find out how Arthur fulfils his destiny that is outlined in this book.
