Five Dead Canaries (Home Front Detective series Book 3)
Five Dead Canaries (Home Front Detective series Book 3)
Price: £4.68

1.0 out of 5 stars Please Amazon, introduce a no-star rating! Even if only for this!, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poorly developed characters, stilted writing, awful plot, tedious tedious tedious. Spoiler alert - the plot is one of those where all of the clues are presented in the last few pages, all other plot lines are red herrings some of which go on far too long. Did I mention dull?

This review is from: Void Moon (Kindle Edition)
A one-off from Michael Connelly, featuring neither Harry Bosch nor Micky Haller, but a brilliant stand-alone read with clever plot and well-rounded characters and a great ending.

A verry annoying style in this book with so very MANY unfinished sentences, do you know what I ....? I've never seen so many ellipses in one book! And NO detective work!

Only edited by Bill Bryson. Many of the chapters aren't about icons, they are jusy childhood memories with nothing at all iconic about them.

It seems strange now that this took so VERY many years to come to DVD. Shows its age a little but still hugely enjoyable

Some other reviewers aren't happy with this film. All I can say is that I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it the first time I saw it on TV. I looked at the reviews and then bought it anyway - and still enjoyed it.

Johnny Shaw is a new discovery for me and I LOVE his work! A very entertaining twist on your hard-bitten detective story.


Station Eleven
Station Eleven
by Emily St. John Mandel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant., 5 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Station Eleven (Paperback)
I bought this book purely because it was on offer. Before I did that however, I read the first chapter. When it was downloaded and I started to read it properly, I was astonished at the twist between chapters one and two. I won't spoil the surprises in store for you - enough people have done that already in these reviews. What I will say is that the plot is strong and that the characters are credible, rounded and fully realised.

Some of the reviews may use words that make you think "I don't read those kind of books". Ignore those feelings. You WILL enjoy this book very much and it will keep you on your toes. You really will find it hard to put your book/kindle down!
