The Son by Philipp Meyer
The Son by Philipp Meyer
5.0 out of 5 stars Three stories in one!, 6 April 2014
It takes a bit of getting used to as this book chronicles three separate time periods for the same family (the McCulloughs) spanning over 100 years, but once you get used to the style it's hard to put down. The three main characters (Eli, Peter and Jeanne Ann) are all interesting in their own right. This is an epic book, part western along the lines of 'Lonesome Dove' but also encompassing the early days of the Texas oil exploration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly brilliant!, 6 April 2014
This was a joy to read, very funny in parts with plenty of 'one-liners'. I'll never look at a tube of savlon again without thinking of Tim Moore.
High Heat: (A Jack Reacher Novella) (Kindle Single&hellip by Lee Child
This was my first kindle book, I got it to see if I would get on reading from a kindle before taking it on holiday. I've read all of Lee Childs books and have liked most of them but this short story never really grabbed me. I'll stick to his 'proper' books in future.
