The Inspector and Silence (The Van Veeteren Series)
The Inspector and Silence (The Van Veeteren Series)
by Hakan Nesser
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best Nesser so far ..., 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nesser has the art of presenting authentic and credible characters. Inspector Van Veeteren could be anyone's father, uncle, friend. The plot is carefully woven and again very believable but it is the analysis of the characters involved that is so satisfying. The motivations, weaknesses and strengths. I believe we may all relate to these. The plot is almost secondary to the careful crafting of personalities. All in all a very satisfying and readable novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit slippery but very comfortable., 24 Dec 2012

These boots are mega comfortable and definitely trendy. However when it's icy the soles are not non slip and can be a little dodgy. Wear them in good weather conditions and no problem at all I thoroughly recommend them.


He Who Fears The Wolf
He Who Fears The Wolf
by Karin Fossum
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime writing at its best, 24 Dec 2012

This review is from: He Who Fears The Wolf (Paperback)
Karin Fossum never disappoints. Her writing is full of subtle observation and oddly undramatic yet compelling to read. I thoroughly recommend this author's work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sticky lid, 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am personally very happy with the Le Creuset kettle. It does what kettles are supposed to do: heats the water, whistles when it's hot and is easy to pour. However, filling the kettle can be a little difficult as the lid is quite tricky to take off, especially when hot. I can do it as long as I put rubber gloves on so as not to burn myself, but my 90 year old mother cannot budge it! As long as you have gloves and good muscles this is an excellent buy and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading with a surprising twist, 21 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bel Canto (Paperback)
Patchett paces this novel beautifully and as the story unfolds the reader is drawn ever more deeply into the relationships which form between the main characters making it difficult to put this book down. If you like a thoughtfully observed yet gentle story this is a book for you. The ending comes as a surprise yet makes perfect sense as a conclusion to the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted, 11 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is exquisitely written however the subject matter is challenging. It is a complex story and despite it's title not a comforting read. It is a book that satisfied my need for good literature but left me feeling perplexed and a little depressed.
