5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and surprisingly flexible., 6 Jun. 2017

Most braided USB cables are solid and chunky. Not so these Ultrics cables; they're light, very flexible and after three months of solid daily use with multiple devices, they appear to be well made and durable - no fraying, no bent plugs, no intermittent connection issues. I'm very happy with this purchase.

A real return to form after the lacklustre Yellow & Green release.

This review is from: Field One (Kindle Edition)
Once I'd got used to the non-linear chapter order, it was very easy to get invested in the micro and macro stories being told here. Looking forward to Field Two now!

Absolutely loved this book. It is totally ludicrous, ridiculous and is also brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, great execution, very satisfying., 23 April 2017

Loved this book. It completely whips Dan Brown's arse in the rollercoaster page-turner sense, I could not stop reading, but it has a warm human heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, human, gripping., 13 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't remember how I came across this novel to download the sample, but I'm glad I did, 'cos it was exactly enough to get me hooked and have me buy the full book.
I enjoy Lovecraft and I initially thought The Stone Man was a smart and engaging take on the idea of a found manuscript written from recollection by the narrator after the bulk of the action has taken place, just as he is on the verge of dying/going mad.
I was both right and wrong. There are some beautifully​ rendered twists in each protagonists' character and a gloriously Neale-esque crescendo.
The discarded ending, included on the final page, is worth reading in exactly the same way as the final piece from Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds is worth listening to. It's secondary to the story, but tantalising in its suggestion of naïve hope.
I can't recommend this book enough, it's fresh, it's human and it's gripping.

Fits perfectly, isn't too bulk and doesn't seem to affect the temperature of the phone on charge.

I was sucked in almost immediately. The very nature of the story caused me to continually second guess it and fail each time. Every second page blindsides the reader. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part two is like a log flume!, 8 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Parts of this seem like a space cowboy novel, others a proper sci-fi dystopia, yet others like a character-led drama. A very engaging novel that easily stands alone while still part of a larger series.
