1.0 out of 5 stars this is boring and non eventful, 8 Mar. 2015

Not worth reading! Poorly written and to be honest, this is boring and non eventful. If this is meant to inspire youngsters to read then don't let them read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars next steps stamper, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little thing to use especially in the children's numeracy books. I also bought the two stars and a wish stamper which is fab. Worth the money and the children like them. Brilliant delivery service, dispatched the next day after ordering. Would definitely use the company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 8 Sept. 2012
An excellent memory stick for a digital camera. I took this on holiday with me and took over 400 photos and filmed about ten short video clips. Good value for money, worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read as usual!, 9 Jun. 2012

For avid DDM fans this will not disappoint! A great read with plenty of twists and turns revealing DDM's dark sense of humour. Each story has the unique DDM mark stamped over it and you will not want to put the book down. I literally read until I fell asleep with exhaustion each night... this beats watching TV! I would recommend this book to both long time DDM fans as well as new readers. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars was one of the stories went on a bit and lost its thread about half way through, other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection of stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 21 April 2012

This review is from: The Scapegoat (VMC) (Paperback)
I found this book easy to read as again DDM does an excellent job at hooking the reader in by the end of the first chapter. The book loses a little pace in the middle but picks up again especially with the death of a family member which changes the course of fate for the other family members.

The obvious question I had as an engaged reader was whether the real Jean would reappear and what would happen to both mens' lives; would they go back to their usual lives or remain in swapped identities? I felt a little cheated at the end in that DDM leaves the end of the story up to the reader to decide how John resolves his sense of failure for his 'John' life and the rascal Jean effortlessly slips back into the life of Jean. I guess that's what makes DDM such a great writer! As a reader, I wanted the real Jean to 'pay' for his selfish behaviour as well as ruining John's back in London. The book does leave you thinking when does one person then take on the identity of another, by choice or by circumstances?.. very clever exploration which I enjoyed thoroughly despite the slightly unbelieveable imposter type behaviour of both characters. Surely Francoise should have guessed?! A good gripping read which again I couldn't put down!

I would recommend this book for children and a great book for adults to share with their children. Great descriptions and good pace. The book lends itself to lots of moral discussions and art work too. I don't particularly like cats but the author does very well in getting the reader engaged in the Cat World. I believe there are further books in this series and I would read the others in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars goodish read, 10 April 2012

This review is from: The Reader (Paperback)
I saw the film and was intrigued by the whole love story and the tug of love for both characters in the story. I have to say that the story is quite simply written so I was a little disappointed in the writing style in that I expected it to be more complex, perhaps even deeper in thought compared to the film. Nevertheless, this is a good read and I would recommend it to fans of the film. Kate Winslet was amazing in the film, in bringing Hanna to life.
