Prague Fatale: Bernie Gunther Thriller 8
Prague Fatale: Bernie Gunther Thriller 8
by Philip Kerr
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars tedious start, 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual Phillip Kerr starts slowly , with loads of really awful descriptive dialogue " short bottle-blonde hair and more make up than seemed strictly necessary outside of a circus tent " and other smart arse wisecracks , which add nothing to the story and irritate the hell out of me, the first part of the Berlin Noire trilogy was awash with them. The early love interest , god only knows why he bothers with this sort of thing, but its in all of his novels. But then he gets into his stride and as always its great. I love the way he weaves real characters into a absolutely believable plot and it is this which brings me back to Bernie time and time again. Must say though i prefer the pre war novels.

1.0 out of 5 stars rubbish, 22 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MacFamily Tree 5 (Mac CD) (CD-ROM)
I wish i had read the negative reviews before i wasted my money on this. Hopeless is the only word i can think of for this excuse for a programme, the virtual tree thing is just a gimmicky joke, as for the rest, words fail me !!!! I have taken the unprecedented step of uninstalling it and junking it, 40 quid down the drain, you live and learn.....avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars biased, 17 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book starts well enough , he then goes on to ruin it by one and a half pages of speculation of how Islam created the modern world, and how western archietects , poets, writers scientists etc would never have been without Islam. Boring revisionism......

2.0 out of 5 stars flawed, 16 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Heroes (Paperback)
I remember picking up this book way back in the seventies and being awed and engrossed by Pilgers commentary, right up to the episode on the evicted farm worker, which was in actual fact one long made up story. I worked in farming at the time, and realized that fact after so called fact was just plain fantasy, this coloured my whole view of the rest of the book, coming to the conclusion that if he made that up, what more did he make up.......Pilger has always had an axe to grind, the old Australian chip on the shoulder syndrome, he has always been a lousy reporter because he cannot remain detached and objective.
