Was really disappointed in this book. I found it poorly written , the sex was excessive and didn't help drive the plot, and in the end only a third of the people get their comeuppance. I also have questions about his descriptions of dementia(a character suffers with it).I enjoyed the racing and training of the horses, but I did find the plot a bit of a let down.
The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike) by Robert Galbraith
Quite simply, one of the best books I've read in a long time. My first voyage into the 'CRIME/DETECTIVE GENRE' and I am definitely going to look for books in this field, such was my enjoyment of this.

The Gaffer: The Trials and Tribulations of a Footb&hellip by Neil Warnock
Not read anything for awhile and so this book was a nice easy start in getting my reading juices flowing again. Some of his insights were interesting and informative of his time as a manager. I probably expected it to be a bit more forthright, knowing how Mr Warnock was famous for being so as a manager. I did start the book with not a v high opinion of him, so this dramatically changed as it shows a more human side to him. Just got a bit samey towards the end and I was ready to finish, hence why I only give it 3 stars.
