A bit commercial, I prefer the 50 year old with my diet coke.

A Time of Torment: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 14. The Number One bestseller
by John Connolly
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Best author currently writing, 16 April 2016
Each book gets better and better. I have just sat and read this from start to finish and I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday. If you are not aware of John Connolly, then lucky you because you have a great series of books to catch up on

What a book and what a life. As it says on the back not for one minute is the reader bored. Highly recommended and yes Blackmore is a bit of a tw*t but what a musician

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the 80s, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was at many of these gigs and what a memory. The different version of she chameleon and the initial version of misplaced childhood makes this a bargain. For anyone in their 40s and who attended these gigs it is awesome. I feel 15 again and totally Fugazi!

I suspect I will be spending £100 on the full version box set

Possibly the finest novel by Iain Banks


The Wolf in Winter: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 12
The Wolf in Winter: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 12
by John Connolly
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nearing Perfection, 13 Sept. 2014
The problem with authors is that some are great when you start reading them; James Patterson, Dan Brown but they never develop their craft and you end up bored with reading the same old story told in the same old way.

Other authors; Ian Rankin, Iain Banks (RIP), Robert Crais, Peter Robinson develop their craft and so the books remain fresh and interesting throughout their development as an author.

And then there is John Connolly. If i was stuck on a desert island the Charlie Parker novels are the books I would choose. So what about his latest offering...

It shows a maturity that you would expect from a series of this length and can still surprise. As a stand alone novel it may not work but do yourself a favour and catch up. I am though left a bit sad, I now have to wait for another 12 months until his next release.

1.0 out of 5 stars Legend quickly going, 25 May 2013
This review is from: Now What ?! (Audio CD)
Led zeppelin never reformed and they are talked about still in hush tones. Thankfully Deep Purple did and for a few years it gave people a chance to see what all the fuss was about. But... To release another album without Lord (RIP, I wish he was just still in bed) or Blackmore, it is just the law of diminishing returns. I know a lot of purple fans will want to believe that this is a great album but it is the emperors new clothes....

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 16 Jun. 2012
This review is from: JB7 320G Metallic S1 (Electronics)
I ordered a Brennan JB7 500G two weeks ago. It was broken within three days and then I was promised a replacement would be delivered between 9am and 5pm. The delivery company arrived at 8am when I was at the shops having taken a days leave from work. Brennan could not rearrange delivery for the same day and so I cancelled my order. Brennan then only refunded the cost of the unit not postage and packing. The idea of the machine is great but badly let down by build quality and the delivery company. I have got myself an IPod instead and it is wonderful.

My one remaining memory is when I phoned up to report the machine as broken after a few days is that it was taken as an everyday occurence and not unusual at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soldier of Fortune, 22 April 2009
Never was a great fan of this album originally but having now listened to it again for the first time in a long time, I found it really enjoyable. Sure the other albums are more Purple but this remastered version just seems more fresh, modern and relevant. Try it, you may be surprised.

Ps Come on Blackmore, Paice, Lord, Hughes and Coverdale how about one last blast on stage....
