A Thousand Splendid Suns
A Thousand Splendid Suns
by Khaled Hosseini
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.16

5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 10 Sep 2008
Put simply, this is a beautful book. Wonderfully written and will melt the stoniest of hearts. It is a harrowing tale in places, and has remained with me, even though I read it some months ago. I know little about Afghanistan as perhaps it once was, so the setting was fascinating. But a fantastic read, and strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It holds nothing back!, 4 Jan 2008
This album is simply superb. Each track is a cracker; great worship (and also great to drive to and sing like a nutter!!!). Personal fave is "Everything" - awesome!


Gone for Good
Gone for Good
by Harlan Coben
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Very twisty turny..., 17 Aug 2004
This review is from: Gone for Good (Paperback)
I ploughed through this book in a matter of a few hours. Slightly weird and macabre in places, but nevertheless extremely gripping. The way the book twists and turns around and about back and forth is clever and enthralling. You do at times need to take time out to work out who is who, however. Generally though, the plot develops and rattles along at a pace.
Not the most beautifully written book you'll ever read, but if you want a darn good yarn to pass a train/plane journey, this is worth considering.


Cross-examined: The Life-changing Power of the Death of Jesus
Cross-examined: The Life-changing Power of the Death of Jesus
by Mark Meynell
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, straightforward exposition of the Cross, 17 Aug 2004
I have to say I completely agree with the other reviewer below - this is an excellent, easy to read work on the importance of the Cross and its centrality to the Christian faith.
I have not yet summoned up the stamina to tackle John Stott's magnum opus The Cross of Christ, but this really encouraged me to do so - it has acted as a delightful taster of Stott's more detailed work.
However that said, this book itself is very much worth reading and really focuses one's mind on the full significance of Jesus' sacrificial death and what it means for us. I found it both challenging and encouraging and above all pleasantly helpful to read. Highly recommended.


The Bourne Supremacy (JASON BOURNE)
The Bourne Supremacy (JASON BOURNE)
by Robert Ludlum
Edition: Paperback

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best!, 11 Aug 2004
The Bourne Supremacy continues in the rich vein of high quality international espionage/spy/thriller stories of which Robert Ludlum is a master. Its prequel, the Bourne Identity, was sheer class and introduced us to the delightfully intricate and complex character of Jason Bourne, and the Bourne Supremacy continues where that left off.
Just as with its prequel, this is page turning, high octane, explosive stuff, which you simply can't put down. As other reviewers have mentioned, get all three in the Bourne trilogy, take some time off work and get read for the ride - buy them all, as they are all superb!


The Emperor of Ocean Park
The Emperor of Ocean Park
by Stephen L. Carter
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Very long, but sufficiently interesting, 11 Aug 2004
This book has a cleverly constructed plot, and the twist which seems to occur at the end of every chapter keeps you hooked. However, the book is rather long and drawn out, and could have had a good 200 pages whittled out of it. The ultimate denouement is a little anti-climatic, although getting there is gripping stuff.
Still worth reading, although perhaps borrow a copy from a friend!


The Janson Directive
The Janson Directive

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable!, 11 Aug 2004
This review is from: The Janson Directive (Paperback)
I eagerly awaited the arrival of The Janson Directive in paperback, and lo and behold, there it was at the airport on my way to France last year.
As with many other Ludlum books, it was totally absorbing and gripping. One of the most exciting books I'd read in a while.
The plot is intricate and gets deeper and deeper, twisting and turning just at the point you thought you knew where it was going. As a result, you never want to put it down. This is one of those books which, if you pick up to read a couple of chapters before going to sleep, you can expect to find yourself reading late into the small hours!
A cracking effort - give it a read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different time setting, same gripping style, 11 Aug 2004
This review is from: The Tristan Betrayal (Hardcover)
As a devotee of Robert Ludlum's work, I grabbed the Tristan Betrayal as soon as it came out. Predominantly set during WW2, the book is just as gripping as any other Robert Ludlum classic. It made a pleasant change to read about a spy in the 1940s, rather than in the current day or post Cold War era. The plot was quite enthralling and well conceived.
However, I must say that it lacked some of the explosive drama that the great Bourne trilogy have, or even the previous Ludlum publication (the Janson Directive).
Still definitely worth a read though - a good yarn!
