1.0 out of 5 stars Thin plot, deteriorates rapidly, 18 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Coming Back (Kindle Edition)
The author's style of writing borders on the florid, but this can be forgiven in the first half of the book. After all, the narrator has been in prison for many years, so he can be excused for thinking in an overblown way. However, the plot - always thin - deteriorates into the downright ridiculous, as the bodies pile up at an alarming rate. Not a single redeeming character in the whole book and the ending made me laugh out loud.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unremittingly grim, 19 May 2016

This review is from: The Wacky Man (Kindle Edition)
I won't go into detail about the content of this book, as many other reviewers have already done so.
The only thing I want to add is that I found it very hard to deal with the unremittingly grim narrative. Huge chunks of the book read, not as a novel, but as extracts from a textbook on child abuse. I never felt I knew Amanda as a person and never lost the feeling that there was so much more that could have been done with it in more experienced hands.

This review is from: Fool Me Once (Kindle Edition)
One of Harlan Coben's most powerful books to date. The ending left me sad and breathless at the same time. Read it ... You won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused, 8 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of Barclay's, but this book has just left me confused. A large part of the book is taken up with re-capping events that took place in Promise Falls in previous books, there are multi-strands with many characters to keep your finger on and the book ends with a massive cliffhanger. Nevertheless, Barclay is still a great writer, but I doubt I will be able to keep all this in my head until the next book is published ... Which means there will be yet more re-capping to contend with.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment, 27 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ten Days (Kindle Edition)
The premise of this book is a good one, documenting nine days of rioting in London and the aftermath.
I understand it was originally a stage play and can see that it would make a visually exciting experience.
My reason for the three stars is that I was disappointed in the emphasis put on (to me) secondary characters from the housing estate, whilst Banji was never fully explored as a person, although he was central to the police investigation and to one of the families. There was no explanation for his actions, except for a few second-hand, cursory remarks from other people, and I never really 'got to know him'.
So, for me, a disappointment and I was left with so many questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical coming-of-age story, 25 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Love (Kindle Edition)
A very positive portrayal of a young girl going to university for the first time and falling in love. Not your typical coming-of-age story, though, because Charlie is confined to a wheelchair and has daily problems to overcome, just to attend lessons and get on with her life. This is dealt with by the author in a matter-of-fact way, never allowing the disability to become the main part of the story. Indeed, at times it is possible to forget Charlie's disability and just lose oneself in the love story between Charlie and Maria. A gentle, interesting read which opened my eyes to a different world. Highly recommended, mainly to a younger audience but there are lessons here for a more mature age range, as well.
