Dark Winter by Andy McNab

McNab rarely disappoints me and this was no exception, a really good read that has one's heart pounding and blood racing, transported into a world that non of us really wants to believe exists but almost certainly does.

I found this book deeply disturbing, in a way that says "truth is stranger than fiction". All the more disturbing because it is real, rather like having a nightmare only to awake to find that it wasn't a dream after all.

I can't suggest that I underst...more

I have finished this book now,it was a struggle, constant promise of more which I would have to admit perhaps did finally arrive as I wearily paged on. All in all not well written, too much of the same old stuff repeated endlessly, the tome could hav...more

Look I am a fly-fisherman, I will read almost anything on the subject in the same way that I will drown a worm in a muddy rain puddle if that is all there is to be had on the fishing front.

Was this book useful? Yes undoubtedly it was and did I enjoy...more

I just loved this book, both for the title and for the numerous biological curiosities within it.

Really rather entertaining although a book to browse through over time more than to read in a sitting, not that that stopped me whizzing through it on t...more

Perhaps I am becoming some sort of literary misogynist but I have recently read, and been overwhelmingly disappointed by, a couple of books by female authors and they seem, to my mind, to have the same shortcomings. Firstly a potentially exciting plo...more

I have never read a book quite like this, not only the style and timbre of it but the fact that I enjoyed reading it, I just didn't really enjoy finishing it. Mostly because it didn't to my mind finish. It was descriptive enough to draw one in, to fe...more

I am not sure that I have read anything else by this author, actually if his writing is consistent I would have remembered. Masterfuly scribed with hidden tensions unassociated with the main plot and a great read. Tricky to put down, the way I...more

I really enjoyed this book, the tale was perhaps a tad farfetched and in the hands of a different author may have come across as such, but Follet manages to make an apparently unlikely tale feel believable, perhaps because of the tremendously...more

This was my first exposure to the author, who apparently scored much praise for her debut novel. This one I have to say disappointed sufficiently to perhaps put me off attempting another. Certainly it captured the hopeless, gray, damp and seedy Scott...more
