This may be the worst book I have ever half read. It is touted as a thriller with a love story. No it is not Baldacci. It is a grocery store bodice ripper and its interminable below the belt scenes for nearly every character are laughable. Glad I got it on sale I would have been royally annoyed if I had paid more than the 4.95. No More please!
Characters were fine, story fine, history good. Performance just oK.
If you deduct all the God Damns, God damn bastards, kill the God damn bastards, there isn't a lot of pages left. I am sure that's just how soldiers talk then and now but as dialogue it leaves the book more hysterical than historical.
GG Kay is the best Author for me, alive and writing today. I have read and now listened to all his work and it gets better and better. Favorites: Tigana can't be beat and Under Heaven is Heaven.
Musr admit Simon Vance reading would have been Perfect.
Morton is adept at keeping you wondering, right down to the last pages. If you love a real mystery...Read her.
In this her third novel, even though you expect that you have her measure, ..you don't. Morton is master of her style and this is as good as the earlier two. Keep reading Morton.
Almost unbelievable premise, turns into a really gripping story of murder and psychology. Heroine detective is really a delight. Great depth of plot and great character readings.
Well done, fabulous characters. Follett at his best. This is his stride, he hits the mark . Much more believable than his bible length histories.
You will have to spend more than one read with this well thought out and very well written mystery.
The characters and plot are equal and that is unusual. Very well worth a reread.
The thoughts on a really new kind of personal philosophy.
There is absolutely none. Leading up to it are Rand's earlier books.
Dagny looking out on the city.
While few are strong enough to adopt this way of thinking, even when they agree, it is still a book young people ( College age) should read in order to get perspective.
I believed that no author would ever meet Dorothy
Dunnett's standard as my all time favorite. Now Kay is so close to that standard that I really couldn't say which author I would take to the "desert Island with one book". Yes it is fantasy--almost-- it is historical --almost. It is without a doubt GREAT!
Veering sharply from kudo to hysterics, this book is what Rand would have called the product of fuzzy thinking.
