Cornwell really knows how to write page turners in the historic vein. Here you have Sharpe in the Dark Ages. It's great

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless. Too much pressure needed to push down plunger, 6 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item looks good, it keeps the coffee hot for quite a long time and it pours well. So why the one star review? Because when pressing the plunger down, you have to use so much force that the boiling hot coffee, under the pressure of the plunger, often explodes out of the spout. Dangerous and extremely messy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing parody, but a bit too much. Kindle edition badly typed, 1 Sept. 2015

This review is from: Cold Comfort Farm (Kindle Edition)
Amusing, but a bit over the top really. The Kindle edition is so badly produced, with so many typos that it might be a parody.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, lazily written, formulaic rubbish, 30 Aug. 2015

This review is from: Revenge (Kindle Edition)
Lazy, formulaic, badly written, endlessly repetitive tosh. This is a truly dreadful book and even though it only cost 99p I will never get back the time I wasted reading it. How can this rubbish possibly sell so many copies?

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good on the history, not so good on the conclusions, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author has an incredibly deep understanding of the origins and meanings of the bible. He clearly explains how the myth was created and why it had such contradictory views within it. All this is based on historical research. But when trying to decide if Jesus really existed he abandons research and then relies on unproven sources such as the mysterious "Q". Come on Mr Ehrman. You KNOW Jesus was a mythical figure. Take the final step and admit it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter crap, 20 May 2015
The title of this book should be "A Manual of How to Abuse Your Child". Quack science written by an utterly irresponsible and deluded woman. A disgrace that Amazon crap like this that is so potentially harmful. Shame on you Amazon.

Bella Mafia
Bella Mafia
by Lynda La Plante
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, don't waste your money, 3 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Bella Mafia (Paperback)
This book is so bad I couldn't believe it was actually written by Lynda La Plante. Lazy writing, numerous plot implausibilities, innumerable continuity mistakes, crass, stereotypical, one dimensional characters and far, far too long. I wasted 18 hours reading this trash. I will think twice before buying another La Plante


A History Of God
A History Of God
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly researched work, 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History Of God (Kindle Edition)
A superbly researched in-depth study which shows how the god myth developed in various societies. Starting in the pre Old Testament era, the book covers the development of the god idea by Jews, Christians (of various sects) and Muslims. It is a must read for any atheist who engages in debate with theists.
