1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off, 22 Dec 2013
This book has been around in paperback for years.

Suddenly Nelson Mandela sadly dies, and as if by magic it's out in hardback for £25.

Surely no-one would be trying to make money out of the great man's sad passing? Hmm......
Two Brothers by Ben Elton

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 Nov 2013
This book is the first Ben Elton book I have read. It is a fantastic roller coaster of a story, which inspires love and support for all the main characters, whilst highlighting both the major and the more petty atrocities that the Nazis subjected the Jewish Germans to. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes well developed characterisation and/or with an interest in the rise of the Nazis.
Traitor's Blood (The Civil War Chronicles) by Michael Arnold
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This debut by Michael Arnold is fantastic. I'm one of those people for whom only a really good book has me riveted, and this one did. The author appears to have a good grasp of the civil war period, and much like the Shardlake books by C J Sansom, gave me a feeling of being there watching as events unfold.

I am looking foward to further books in the series, and wish Mr Arnold the very best of luck.

The only downside......................... Stryker is a royalist.
