If you are not having enough nightmares on your own, this book will help. It is an excruciating bad dream that achieves artfulness at a price.
The characters are a wonderful combination of unfamiliar customs and believable human qualities.
Yes. The multiple perspectives by different police inspectors was intriguing.
Yes. Listened to it on a long drive.
Very well written. Author deserves her awards.
Yes. Good read.
Corruption in the ranks. Discovery of way to interpret the locals.
The whole recovery from death thing is fascinating.
Good clean narrative.
A clear plan for the book.
No terrible given what had to work with.
Half to two-thirds of the content.
Every popular historical figure that you can haul out? Really? Not a credit to the genre.
This is a sound space adventure. Very enjoyable.
Development of a good second book in the series. Builds upon the earlier work.
From military assignment to interstellar vision.
This book does not suffer from the shortcomings of many space adventures: too many characters, too much detail, too little plot. Congratulations on a good solid space adventure.
If authors have odds and ends in the desk, they may not string together into a coherent book length work.
Clearer, more focused character development.
Less switching between character voices without context. We are not all adept 1950ish English (British) speakers.
Several irrelevant British soldier personalities.
A period piece best suited for a specialist.
clever space mystery
Vince Lombard character
nope - first time
The switching time frames in the story line take a little getting used to but they are worth it.
Ark Royal is an interesting twist on the space shoot-em-up genre. Its heroes are an obsolete ship crewed by supposed low achieving personnel.
The ship Ark Royal herself was my favorite character because the key to her success was her age and quality of construction and maintenance.
It could be. There was no hurrying the story, and that was a strength.
I plan to listen to the entire series.
The plot is slow moving, but so is rural British life in the mid-19th Century. However even at that, the young Inspector Faro is a pretty dull and unimaginative hero. There are a couple of interesting little plot twists, but overall the book is a snoozer.
The hero certainly in no Sherlock Holmes, and he has to be bailed out.
Now this is clearly the book's strength. I have listened with pleasure to Robbie MacNab interpret everything from medieval village life to contemporary murder mysteries. He is by far the most gifted narrator that I have come across in years of enjoying audio books.
Yes, for the pleasure of listening to Robbie MacNab.
I understand why so few of the books in this author's series have been recorded.
Yes. A complicated but interesting plot.
The accounts of post-WWII shock therapy and psychiatric treatment are memorable.
The phantom (illusion) friend distracts the Bad Cop.
Post Traumatic Stress shaped lives in the 1940s.
At many points in the novel, I felt that I had hold of real literature.
