The Reversal by Michael Connelly
The Reversal by Michael Connelly

I'm a huge fan of Michael Connelly's books, especially those featuring maverick detective Harry Bosch so obviously, this latest offering appealed. Less so of defence lawyer turned prosector Mickey Haller but the plot seemed interesting enough and, based on his track record, I dived into "The Reversal" with great expectations.
As usual, Connelly's narrative moved along at a brisk pace and the storyline made the book hard to put down. There remained just enough ambiguity about the case, the witnesses and the defendant to maintain interest and keep the pages turning. Then, out of the blue came the change in direction of the plotline. (I had to check to see if I was reading the same book.)… Read more

The Men Commandments: The Bible for Blokes from th&hellip by James Nesbitt
5.0 out of 5 stars Nail on the head, 16 Oct 2008
This book is laugh out loud funny. I don't listen to Virgin Radio so this is my first encounter with the wit and wisdom of Christian O'Connell. His commentary on the differences between men and women is sharp, accurate and observant. From the very start of the book, I found myself nodding in agreement with his wry observations and spot-on remarks. I recognise so many traits of both myself and my wife in this book. It's nice to know that nearly all men are basically the same. The only disagreement I have with him is that he hates cats. (I'm a cat person.)
