5.0 out of 5 stars The politician and the man, 8 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ed Balls demonstrates that being in politics is about making a difference. He writes well, and is engaging. This is not the diary of a super human, but the thoughts of someone who tried, had an impact and changed our world by a few inches at least for the better.

A must read book for everyone who cares about individual and political freedom. It is remarkable that it was published before the Charlie Hebdo murders and before Samsung warned customers about their "listening" TV's! Nick Cohen is not a prophet of doom, or fantasy theorist, he is just a journalist who is prepared to think sometimes against the grain.

Obviously it is great to have your paper delivered every morning without leaving your bed. However on Kindle, and Ipad the print is very small and there is no way (that ( have found) to increase the font size.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the great tradition of spy stories, 28 Jan. 2015

In the great tradition of spy stories, you don't want to put the book down, and yet it leaves you a little sceptical.

I liked the way the author muddles up the past and present as it is in the old woman's head. The daughter is portrayed with critical sympathy as any of us would be viewed (hopefully) in her situation. A very realistic close to home novel, and yet it manages to be a mystery tale that the reader is keen to solve.

3.0 out of 5 stars But I totally enjoyed reading it, 9 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book needs to be proofread as the spelling is dodgy and sometimes the author writes one word for an other. But I totally enjoyed reading it. The story is well told, not all believable, but it is a novel not a history book. A really good read.

APPLE IPHONE 5C / 5 c Wave Series Slim GEL Case Cover Includes Touch Screen Stylus + ScreenProtector and Polishing Cloth

4.0 out of 5 stars The gel case is great and well fitting, 18 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gel case is great and well fitting, the touch screen stylus seems to lose its "touch" after a while and the screen protector was a nightmare to fix, never quite managed it. Eventually I took it off. However, the main thing being the case, I thought it was a good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars to take with a serious pinch of salt!, 18 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very annoying that I could not put it down as I was very irritated by characters that were mere types rather than people, situations that verged on ridiculous, and a view of history that was rather simplistic and cliché. Also shocked that in a very long book about the second World War, and with characters that turn up at every major events of the period, there is just ONE sentence evoking the existence of extermination camps - and even so, very vaguely- so, Sorry Mr Follett, can do better.
