Son of Stone (Stone Barrington Novels)
Son of Stone (Stone Barrington Novels)
by Stuart Woods
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.59

1.0 out of 5 stars A great disappointment, 7 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For years Woods has been one of my favourite writers but with Son of Stone he has literally "lost the plot ". It is a shallow story full of implausible events - a 16 year old boy who has made a film so brilliant that a major film studio has bought the rights for a huge sum ; an 18 year old schoolgirl who has written the music score for this film, again with great financial reward; the former ne'er-do-well Herbie Fisher studies law and in a very short time becomes qualified; and when a much loved family member is killed there seems to be very little grief . Throughout it all Stone Barrington incredibly keeps acquiring millions of dollars. I shall be reluctant to read the next novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars unable to connect without another lead, 31 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleased to find a surge protector for just one appliance with telephone protection as well. However, I could not connect it immediately as I had to purchase an additional lead. I connected the phone to the output socket but then found there was no way of connecting the input to the telephone wall socket. I would have expected the additional lead to be supplied with the cube as without it there is no possibility of connection.
