The Girl on the Train
The Girl on the Train
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down., 7 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great psychological thriller - really interesting characters, neat plot device (people seen from a train window) and it kept me guessing until the end. I think it's her first novel, hope it won't be the last.

3.0 out of 5 stars Every picture tells a story, 4 July 2009
This is a quirky, original look at areas of work most of us know nothing about. The photos accompanying the text lift it out of the ordinary and it is beautifully produced. It's an easier read than you might expect and I enjoyed it. However, there are some errors of fact: on page 134 the author states: "...a member of the European Union, its [French Guiana's] highest legal authority is the Court of Justice in Strasbourg". It isn't; the European Court of Justice is in Luxembourg, and is the highest legal authority for EU states. Strasbourg is the location of the European Court of Human Rights, which is an insitutions of the Council of Europe, not the EU (although all EU states are members).

4.0 out of 5 stars God is back: did he ever go away?, 4 July 2009
A very good read whatever your religious beliefs (or not), for anyone who is interested in current trends in society. Its main focus is (probabaly inevitably) the US, but it deals with other parts of the world too. The writers have done their research well, and it's the only book I've ever read with witty acknowledgements.
