A Wanted Man: (Jack Reacher 17)
A Wanted Man: (Jack Reacher 17)
by Lee Child
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.14

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
3.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a story there Lee ?, 8 Sept. 2012
I have read all the Jack Reacher novels and always look forward to the next one,but A Wanted Man to be honest was really quite dull , a thin plot , no action until the final chapters .Maybe Lee Child is becoming a bit like James Patterson quantity rather than quality ?
If you're a Big Jack fan you'll read it but i guarantee you won't remember it.

ps

Apparently Jack Reacher is going to be played on film by .................yep you've guessed it that 6ft 5in hollywood giant Tom Cruise ,not chasing the money then Lee ??

3.0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag, 26 Feb. 2012
ok first the good :
image quality is fantastic
panorama funtion
menus
help funtions

then the not so good:
as all have said the flash is in the most rediculous place
HD video takes up a huge file size and its difficult to play on xp without a convertor fine on windows 7
got mine from John Lewis because of the after sales service ,what a mistake that was,mine went faulty outside the 28 day period when they will replace if you are not happy ,so they wouldnt replace or refund it has had to go back for repair to Sony. i should have bought it from Amazon, John Lewis note thats a lesson i wont forget

On the whole i would still recommend this camera

5.0 out of 5 stars very good monitor, 12 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lot bigger than my previous Sony 17 inch ,which i was very happy with . I was worried that it may be too big but you very soon get used to the size . The picture quality is excellent and it looks stunning on my desk.
Only con is it was a bit pricey ,but i'm sure it will reduce over time on Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars I was sceptical ..not any more, 30 May 2011
This review is from: Let Them Talk (Audio CD)
I was a little sceptical of Mr Laurie turning to music ,but all in all its really very good.
Granted he is neither the greatest singer you'll ever hear nor the best musician but it really does work ...it has an enthusiasm for the blues and I enjoyed it

Nice work Hugh

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing, 19 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jungle Blues (Audio CD)
Saw this guy on "Later with Jools Holland" ,and my brain couldnt compute what i was hearing. A white 30 something Aussie guy sounding like a black 60 year old american blues singer
This album is brilliant ,5 or 6 great tracks on here .I love "early in the morning" and"brave son of america" and the brilliant "jungle lullaby"

My favourite this year ,where does Jools Holland find them ?

Blind Eye (Logan McRae, Book 5)
by Stuart MacBride

4.0 out of 5 stars Well I enjoyed it !, 5 July 2010
I know some of the reviews didnt like this book ,but i really enjoyed it .A reasonable plot ,but the interplay between Logan and his Lesbian Inspector are at times brilliantly funny .
The first i have read from this author will definitely seek out others
