This review is from: F (Kindle Edition)
I am in two minds about it. Has some very wise and amusing things to say, especially about religion and the art world. But the narrative is rather bitty and I did not know what to make of the abrupt finish though I suppose there is a sense of almost closure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it if you dare, 24 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The descriptions of life in the prisoner of war camp are brilliantly written but almost unbearable to read. This was one of the very rare occasions when I have had to put a book down from time to time to recover my equilibrium. But everyone should read this exploration of where misplaced loyalty and principle (and poverty) can lead people who are basically decent. I did not give five stars because some of the final chapters and the relationship between Dorrigo and his wife are not entirely convincing, though I suppose these too can be interpreted as explorations of loyalty o0f a different sort.

This review is from: Us (Kindle Edition)
An interesting tale, with several home truths and some page turning chapters. But in some it reads a bit like extracts from the travel guides the (anti?)hero likes to consult. And I do get a bit fed up with male breast beating these days. Problems are just occasionally the female's fault. But I suppose an actor journalist inevitably finds the arty one more sympathetic than the scientist. The summary of the plot from the viewpoint of the other main protagonists in the final chapter was a nice touch.

A replacement for one I've had for several years. It charged four batteries efficiently. and I am sure it will continue to do so for several years

This review is from: The Children Act (Kindle Edition)
Best point: McEwan putting into practice his belief that novels should not be too long. But this does not stop The Children Act being an enjoyable and thought provoking read that is well worth spending some time over. One thing that McEwan does seem able to do very convincingly (but who am I to judge) is to get inside the thinking of an attractive and very clever woman. There are some passages that I suspect will irritate extreme feminists but I am sure they reflect what a family court judge comes across frequently. I doubt if it will win the Booker prize but it certainly deserves to be on the short list.

The usual rubbish. Requires enormous suspension of disbelief. But Archer can certainly tell a good story and keep you flipping the Kindle pages. I enjoyed it and look forward to the film or TV series which surely must come however much the literati despise Archer.

I can't really add anything. They were very cheap and do exactly what I wanted them for.
