1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry - dull and absurd, 18 April 2016

An academic's take on a thriller - unrealistic, frantic and silly. Goodness knows why it gets good reviews.

The most magnificent book of WW1. There really is nothing more to say. The memory of reading it will stay with you for the rest of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read & be thankful, 10 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent biography about one of the finest officers in the history of the Royal Navy, by someone who was there. Also surprisingly encouraging for those of us who battle through the fallacies of modern life to be reminded that if you are persistent you can come from behind and do something really remarkable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine and humbling book, 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A remarkable understated book, true to the great qualities of the First World War generation. If you want to understand what our recent forbears were like, read this and the many similar books now available, and ignore the done-nothing-with-their-lives bien pensants and commentariat of the modern world.

5.0 out of 5 stars V fine large watch, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Incredible value at about £95 incl postage, and a v fine looking large watch. A point to note is that what appears to be the second hand is actually the stop watch hand, the real second hand being on the lower subsidiary dial. Leaving the stop watch permanently on effectively gives a large second hand but might drain the battery (though it has a 5 year life).

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing & Convincing, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent, highly readable account of how political ideals spread throughout the English speaking world. How the author, an exceptionally able "tweet every 15 mins" MEP who should be in parliament, finds time to write books like this is beyond me.

3.0 out of 5 stars The cynical amoral world of modern politics laid bare, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This deeply depressing book confirms worst fears about modern British politics and its supporting caste in the civil service, public institutions and the parliamentary lobby. None of them, including the author, has done a proper job or lived a life comparable to that of ordinary voters. The book shows what a cynical, duplicitous, amoral, self-serving lot they are. RIP kindness, humanity, courage and conviction. Three stars because the book is reasonably well written and brutally frank.
