5.0 out of 5 stars Modern folk tunes from the amazing Jon Boden, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Modern folk tunes from the amazing Jon Boden.
Modern life and concerns enraptured in traditional sounding tunes.
Bowden plays all the instruments himself and his unique voice (perfect for the genre) is as brilliant as always.
Love it

5.0 out of 5 stars English folk at its best, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Works (Audio CD)
Brilliant.
Love Boden's voice and the choice of old English folk tracks is great.
Always loved Bellowhead and this is strongly reminiscent of their shows.
If you enjoy good quality folk music then this is a great buy

1.0 out of 5 stars Police witness statement, 12 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first few pages, ie. The introduction intrigued me so I bought this book.

However, the story read like a police witness statement or a newspaper report.
There was no effort to build characters so the reader feels nothing when tragedy strikes.
There was quite a good plot but the execution of the story was poor, I would not recommend this to anyone and will not look for anything else by this writer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 24 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To light weight.
If a reader had no knowledge of this period of English history the book would Feel fragmented.
No effort to explain Warwick's decisions etc.
Poor

Probably wrong to write a review on a book I didn't finish, but this was awful.
Would not recommend at all

1.0 out of 5 stars Chic lit with Gods and Hero's, 27 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you enjoy "chic lit" then this selection is for you.
Mills and Boon with Thor.

Disappointing, after reading the reviews I was hoping for something innovative and exciting.

If I am honest I didn't read all the stories as I have very low tolerance for thus kind of smaltz and my gag reflex was really setting in!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sack the proof reader!, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sack the proof reader!
I quite enjoy these stories, I enjoy a good adventure.
The main problem is the errors in the printing, spelling not too bad but grammarian atrocious and often the use of the wrong word completely!
Naming the wrong character for a thought or speech can throw the reader too

Kindle need to take far more care when transcribing these stories.
And it's not just these tales that suffer, I have the same problem with other books bought through Amazon Kindle.

I honestly think I shall stop using it until these faults are sorted out as it dies spoil my enjoyment of a tale.
I want to get out a red pen and start correcting all the errors 😳

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoy these books, 29 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoy these books, liking the characters etc
It only got three stars because of the kindle versions terrible proof reading and spell checking.
Spelling and grammar mistakes abounded!!!!
They spoil my enjoyment of a book, I want to get out a metaphorical red pen and correct them!
At the bottom I could write "Watch your spelling and grammar Estelle" although I know she is not responsible!! Frustrated teacher maybe.
