2.0 out of 5 stars Ver weak game, 21 Jan. 2017
This can barely be described as a game. Go here, click on the highlighted items, go to the next place the game tells you to go to... rinse and repeat. No mystery, no genuine puzzle-solving. Glad I only paid £11 on PS Store.

This review is from: Marina (Hardcover)
Not as good as Shadow of the Wind. But much better than the dreadful Prisoner of Heaven.

1.0 out of 5 stars A good idea, poorly executed. Dull, 18 Nov. 2014

This review is from: The Terror (Paperback)
Tedious beyond belief. The author always uses 100 words when one would do. Massively overwritten. Needs a good editor.

This review is from: The Second Half (Hardcover)
This book is consistently honest and illuminating. The sections on leaving Man Utd are particularly good. The sections on Sunderland and Ipswich are less so - more a chronology of results and scorers.

The cover of this book makes it sound really exciting when in fact it is tedious. Very little happens and the characters are plain and uninteresting. I'm up to page 120 and not sure if I can force myself to carry on. £7 wasted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a Great Book, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a strange book to review. It is still a fantastic book, but falls some way short of the majesty of Storm of Swords PT2. SPOILER - the absence of Robb, Theon, Joffrey, Jon, Stannis, Davos, Catelyn, Tyrion, Tywin, Daenerys and others did harm the excitement. There were several new characters and new theatres which weren't particularly interesting. Even some of the existing characters produce a sigh of disappointment when you see their name at the head of a new chapter - Brienne, Sansa etc. The Iron Islands stuff felt particularly unnecessary. I didn't care about any of those characters. Jaime and Cersei are still magnificent though, with Jaime in particular developing into a character with great depth and many layers. Despite there being several chapters which were so dull I skim-read them, the book still gripped me and the final quarter was wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 25 July 2013

I came to Game of Thrones late. I listened to the first book on audiobook and really didn't like it. I then watched Series 1-3 of the TV show which were all fantastic. SO good in fact, that I couldn't wait for the next TV series and went to this book to find out what happens next. I finished the book in about 3 days. It was gripping, even though the first half of the book is covered by the end of series 3 TV show. The world created by George Martin is fantastic. The moral ambiguity of the characters is a nice twist on the fantasy genre. The fact that the 'good' characters don't necessarily win (or live) takes some getting used to, but ultimately makes for an engrossing read. I am now on to Feast of Crows, with Dance with Dragons (1 and 2) waiting on my bedside table.

The connector piece which should slot into the side of the phone doesn't fit properly. it is slightly loose and therefore doesn't charge the phone.

This book is great. Very funny, well-written. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Fighting Fantasy literature. Or even if you aren't.
