The Lost Throne
The Lost Throne
by Chris Kuzneski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable, 20 Nov. 2008
This review is from: The Lost Throne (Paperback)
I know some people are going to criticise Kuzneski for perhaps any potential historical errors that may have been made or that the characters are pretty thin but overall this is a fast paced action thriller that doesn't fail to disappoint. Excellent read

3.0 out of 5 stars The romanov phrophecy, 25 July 2008
This review is from: The Romanov Prophecy (Paperback)
A fairly enjoyable read although this is a bit like most of steve berry's work in that in parts he will constantly have you turning pages but in others it is very sluggish especially the first 80 or so pages. So if you do survive beyond this point you are in for a pretty entertaining read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, 5 Mar. 2008
This review is from: The Last Testament (Paperback)
After reading many positive reviews about this book all I can say is I was left utterly disappointed. It didn't help that it took a fair amount of time to get the ball rolling and for the plot to develop. The Characters were all dull and predictable and I could even see where and when the twists and turns were coming. I have avoided giving this book 1 star for the simple fact that it had potential but like so many of this genre it failed to deliver

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 1, 18 Feb. 2008
Very enjoyable read, Pullman has created a world which although shares some similarities to our own differs hugely, i thoroughly enjoyed exploring this world and cant wait to move on to the next book in the series to cross the bridge with Lyra and Pan into the other worlds.


Gerrard: My Autobiography
Gerrard: My Autobiography
by Steven Gerrard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Gerrard, 12 Feb. 2008
Both an excellent and interesting read, it goes over all the highs and lows of his career from Istanbul to Portugal. It also gives us an insight of his years as a young kid growing up in Liverpool and how the Hillsbrough disaster affected his family. I do think that he has held back a little, I couldn't help thinking that he missed something out when he was talking about his on/off transfer to Chelsea and I felt that the last chapter was a little rushed but overall very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars harry potter, 16 Oct. 2007
Excellent book, this really does set up the last 2 books of the series nicely, some reviewers are complaining that the book has too many pages and to be honest I was slightly put off when I realised that I had 950+ pages to read, but I think Rowling has done a wonderfull job because after every page I read I couldn't wait for the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the better ones, 19 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Hard Bastards (Hardcover)
I have read a few books about fighters, gangsters and football hooligans, but I have to say this is definately one of the better ones although it could have done with a bit more info on each of the people interviewed

3.0 out of 5 stars the labyrinth, 14 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Labyrinth (Paperback)
Overall this is not as bad as some have said, there are 2 stories to follow within the book, one set around the 1200's and another set in more recent times. The story set in the 1200's is a decent read however the story set in 2005 is a major let down in comparison
