A wonderful book written in the Seventies about Cortes and a few hundred men conquering the vast Aztec empire. With just over 200 pages this is an historical book that reads like an exciting novel. Beautifully written. I first borrowed this from a local library in Dublin. It stuck with me so I ordered it online. Strangely enough I got the exact same copy delivered to me from the UK. They had been selling old stock. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 10 Jun. 2014
Harrowing, compelling, educational, gripping, heartbreaking. One of the best true crime books I have ever read (and I have read many). You get a brilliant insight into this side of Japanese culture; the nightlife, the world of the hostess and the sense of foreign alienation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldnt Finish It, 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave it 3 stars based on what I read. Very poor. Didnt like the direction the character Miriam went in, she seems to have lost part of her intelligence from The Hunger. Actually the whole book is dumbed down and depends too heavily on physical action. The charter Paul Ward seems like a plonker. The book doesnt have any of the decadence and mystery that made the first book a classic. Shame, beacuse I really like Whitley...The Hunger and Billy both great books and Communion... chillingly well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet, 15 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Poe: A Life Cut Short (Hardcover)
A short biography approx 200 pages told in swift clear chapters. This book is not dressed up in any sense and cuts straight through all the usual crap that normally bulks up a biography. The bigger the biography does not make it better.
