What would you do if you suddenly found yourself 25 years in the past? For the nine billion people living in the year 2042 it's no longer a question...it's a reality. When a seemingly simple experiment goes disastrously wrong, James Baston finds himself stranded in the past alongside the rest of mankind. Here the old are young once more, the dead live again, and civilization is in chaos.

This hooks itself out as a book. It's not. It's an introduction to a series. It's not bad with some good thinking but the sudden gotcha ending leaves a very sour taste.

I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans.

This book is a deight. It's all very unusual but a pleasure from start to finish. Think prawn followed by salad followed by steak followed by chocolate mousse and then great coffee with rum.
But, Tesla is right, Chip sweats far too much.

It is 1780, and 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is a brash, rebellious young libertine. So much so that his callous father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the tall-masted Ariadne, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home with the randy pleasures of the port and the raging battles on the high seas. But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise.

I love Patrick O'Brian. This isn't it, but it's great fun and very well put together. Next book now. Thanks.

Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.
