This review is from: Symbiosis (Paperback)
This is complex, intricate and absorbing tale and, as usual with Guy Portman's stories, highly unusual. Because of the twins' use of crytophasia, it is at times a demanding read but well worth it. There also the undercurrent, and eventual eruption of violence, which is proving to be a theme for this author. As always, his sardonic and perceptive insights, both psychological and social, make for an interesting commentary on contemporary life. Reading this makes me want to reread his two previous books, "Charles Middleworth" and "Necropolis".

4.0 out of 5 stars Amorality a la Highsmith, 9 May 2014

This review is from: Necropolis (Paperback)
Necropolis is a very dark and increasingly violent story written with wit underpinned with a refreshing erudition.
A modern take on the character of Ridley perhaps, with its detailed violence and cast of unpleasant characters, this well written story provides an acerbic but at the same time very funny commentary on the antics of the Health and Safety and politically correct brigade. A good read but kept well away from children!

This is my granddaughter's whose first sentence to me was "Nonna, Sara going adventure" and the sight of a fish in the sky is enough to make anybody's spirits soar.

This review is from: Sherlock: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This Cumberbatch chap and the new take on Sherlock is incredible. So interesting, so unexpected, what a delight. I finally understand why my Mother, a prolific reader, rated Conan Doyle is highly!

2.0 out of 5 stars Franklin bore, 30 Jan. 2013

Until we all read, or saw, the marvellous Pulitzer-winning "John Adams", Franklin was a bit of a hero to us all. That would never have happened after reading his autobiography - what a tedious, pretentious, self-involved bore he was!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kennedy Vivaldi, 30 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was an experiment for me, having heard Kennedy's name and heard him on the radio, but this performance is not for me. I have actually sold it on Music Magpie and replaced this version of those wonderful 4 Seasons with a very different performance.
