The Stolen a brilliant Thriller.

The Stolen by T.S Learner has written a pulsating fast moving yet complex thriller that shines a light in to some parts of European history others would rather forget and uses this as the background to the story. As a reader and a historian it is not often one can flick to the back and find the bibliography as well as who aided in her research in to the writing of this top class thriller.

Story was slow and confusing to begin with, I probably would have given up but I refuse to leave a book unread. Speed picked up in the second half, thankfully. Storyline was ok, could have easily forgone the first half and cut to the second, with a bit more around the statuette's orgin and history. Overall ok.

my boyfriend's mum gave me this book and the cover didn't seem like my type of story but I was pleasantly surprised it was a real page turner and turned out to be a brilliant book! definitely worth a read!

A grieving man discovers some dark secrets about his family.

The first half of this book was outstanding - real gripping and well written, but then the side plot (on materials) took over and the plot seemed to drift / turn into dodgy science.

Real rating 3.5

Not for me. It was very easy to put down and increasingly difficult to pick up. This is the second Learner novel I've not been able to finish so I think I'll leave them be from now on.
