3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 25 Jun 2014
I have enjoyed a number of other novels by Elizabeth Buchan, but I have to say I was very disappointed with this one. I think she's trying a bit too hard for effect. I've given it 3 stars partly because it was so cheap, and for that it could just about be considered OK as holiday reading. What really annoyed me are the number of typos. They are everywhere and of all types, I suppose this may be because the price is so low, and some of them are quite funny.... I particularly enjoyed a sentence about 'Fat' taking a hand (should be Fate I think!)
Horatio Nelson by Tom Pocock

5.0 out of 5 stars another good read, 4 April 2014
I read and enjoyed Tom Pocock's earlier book on Nelson, but this one is very different and has lots of different material. Personally I prefer this one. Very readable and with a flowing style that keeps you with it to the end.
HMS Amphion 1798 by Michael Feather

5.0 out of 5 stars Very readable, 4 April 2014
I found this an enjoyable and informative book. It isn't very long, and that's all to the good as there is no padding, just clear succinct and involving accounts of this important ship and these interesting times. Thank you.
