A great book that touches on psychology and history and is extremely well written. It stimulated a lot of ideas and inspired to read other authors that touch on this topic including Henry James.

The Late-Night News
The Late-Night News
by Petros Markaris
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Greek Detective Novel, 5 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Late-Night News (Paperback)
I wanted a detective novel that would explain how Greece worked. This is a good one and gives you a feeling for the bureaucracy and power in Greek Society. The ending is unexpected but is within the tone of the whole book where you know as much as anybody else. It can be heavy going as the subject matter is thought provoking but a worthwhile read if you fancy something better than serial killers.


The End of the World in Breslau: An Eberhard Mock Investigation
The End of the World in Breslau: An Eberhard Mock Investigation
by Marek Krajewski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Detective Novel, 5 Oct. 2014

Great writer, great story. An interesting time and place in history and he is not a pleasant hero type detective. A book that makes you think about his personal choices. As good as Martin Cruz Smith but a more amoral Arkady Renko character.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Funny Present, 13 Feb. 2014

It was a humorous present as I use this term in my hypnotherapy work. There was a misspelling of the word 'shield' but otherwise it was OK.

This review is from: Voltaire in Love (Hardcover)
If there were more historical biographies written like this then kids would really learn it at school. She tells a good story, makes the characters interesting and you have an idea of the gestation of ideas and philosophy.

I have always loved the difference between Dylan Thomas' private life and his writing and this is a good example. There are lots of examples of the wheedling and whiny side of his nature as well as the breezy confidence that was seen in his writings. I wish there was more of this.


Malignant Sadness
Malignant Sadness
by L. Wolpert
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Summary of depression, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Malignant Sadness (Paperback)
This is well written and he describes his own situation very well. The more I read the book it makes me feel that there are may different types of depression and that some approaches work for some people and some for others. There is even a place for ECT where all other avenues have failed and the person is really suffering. If it had pushed into this area then I would have given a higher rating.

If you like the early Beatles sounds or rockabilly then you might like this. The bands are enthusuastic and energetic with that twangy sound that echos.

I've read a few of his books and they are a good combination of insights into Asia, ex-pat culture and general philosophising about life. His Chandleresque approach will always appeal to me and I look forward to reading more.
