A Time of Torment: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 14
A Time of Torment: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 14
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing, 19 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a John Connolly fan who gets his new titles as soon as available. I found this much less suspenseful than its predecessors. I suspect the author may have been working to meet this years deadline.

2.0 out of 5 stars Novel Writing by Numbers, 7 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The underlying idea had potential but the author spun his material out by constant repetition. His characters are wooden and unconvincing. Save your money buy something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars unforgivable nonsense, 22 Aug. 2015

This review is from: The Stone Circle (Kindle Edition)
Pop psychology combined with a lack of historical perspective make this an ordeal for the reader. Celtic Irish fleeing Roman conquest. Reader beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Connolly opens another chapter of books, 3 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had thought that John Connolly was running out of steam in his Charlie Parker series but his current creation points to the opening of a new line of well researched tales of suspense and terror based stories of evil - an excellent read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful Rubbish, 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overlong, repetitive, an initially good idea absolutely destroyed by a self-indulgent and ill disciplined writer. I will not be returning to this well. NO stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gallows humour f, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast paced nonsense by an accomplished writer. It helped me endure a hospital wait and a rather boring New years day I might buy one more from this author if it cheap enough. There might be a good book there.


Assassin's Quest (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 3)

Hobbs creates suspense and grips the reader's imagination. Her book is well crafted and demands that the reader does some work to develop the imagery within her fantasies.

Not worth a review. Rubbish, Rubbish, Rubbish I cannot believe that I actually read this waste of space, money and time.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Laura Croft" on speed, 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A silly comic book of a novel written by a " The Golden Bough" fan. The author moves Yorkshire to the west of England and has Galileo burned at the stake.

The Whisperers: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 9
The Whisperers: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 9
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of his best, 3 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Wisperers disappointed me. I have read all of the preceding Charlie Parker novels and felt that Connolly was running out of ideas and energy. There were too many references to previous novels and too many superfluous explanations of the references.These disrupted the flow of the novel and irritated this reader. Not up to his usual high standards. Connolly should send Parker to his final solution.
