Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant tale., 26 July 2014
One of the best from Wilbur Smith, this is a book of two halves. The first is funny, relatively light-hearted and somewhat superficial. The second half is deadly serious under the occasional humour, a tale of revenge set in the mangrove swamps of East Africa which enthralls and holds your attention. Most enjoyable and highly recommended if you like your war stories with a bit of a twist. A brilliant read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A strange book., 19 Jun 2014
The Kennedys have always been a tragic family, so much promise cut short without fulfilling their destiny, & Kick was no exception. A sad story, not particularly well told. The author writes as if she were there all the time, & the characters make speeches to each other. I don't think I'll be reading this again.
Croissants and Jam (a romantic comedy) by Lynda Renham
2.0 out of 5 stars Very predictable tosh., 13 Jun 2014
This story was quite amusing but really predictable from the time Bels met Christian on the plane. The only question was how many stupid situations they would get into before the final chapter, I did start to count but I lost the will to live half way through.
Why do some authors write a whole book in present tense? It's really annoying. I won't be reading any more of her books, and am deleting this one.
