The Passage (The Passage Trilogy Book 1)
The Passage (The Passage Trilogy Book 1)
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing and addictive read., 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An exciting account of human self destruction set in the USA in the near future. The only credible tale of vampiric zombies I have come across. The struggles of an enclave of human survivors in a world over-run by physically superior yet mentally impaired changelings are convincingly and vividly depicted. I look forward to reading more of their exploits in book 2.

3.0 out of 5 stars The exciting tale of human fortitude in the face of evil continues., 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The saga of the central characters develops and is gripping in its depictions of their trials and adventures. Many of the various strands of the story in book 1 are drawn together. However the actions of the "twelve" become rather too fantastic to be really convincing and towards the end of this book what is supposedly real and what is imagined becomes so confused I began to lose interest. Nevertheless the story is one I wish to follow in the last of the trilogy. I presume it will take us beyond mainland USA so we get to know if the human race manages to survive.

3.0 out of 5 stars One end of the spectrum, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Atlas Shrugged (Kindle Edition)
Obviously written as an anti-communist diatribe. The advantages of unconstrained free enterprise and capitalism over-stated; especially when viewed from post cold-war developments in Russia and the recent banking crises. I couldn't accept the length that characters were allowed to go on proclaiming their points of view and as they tended to be very repetitive I finished up skimming large chunks of the monologues. The main characters seemed unreasonably extreme and set in their views.I am largely sympathetic to Ayn Rand's thesis but got bored by the heavy-handed way she deluivered it.


Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best, 22 Jun. 2013

Interesting premise that could have been more convincingly painted, got bored by the constant pusuit and frequent red herrings. The ending was novel and could be the basis of an interesting sequel.

Good characterisation, fast paced but difficult to follow the complicated plot. Re-reading parts helped, as did the final summing up.


Revisited (4 CD Box Set)

Price: £15.35

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Orchestration was thin; nowhere near as colourful nor as moving as Dances with Wolves. It was further spoilt by the vocals. Ok there were non-vocal selections at the end of the CDs but I was dissapointed as I expected better.
