  1.  Love it !


    Great new album with tantalising smaples of past Elton John tracks running throughout, a must for any Elton John fan especially if you yearn for his older work, this combines the best of old and new.

  2.  Very readable


    As someone who is keen on the subject of Robert the Bruce, I was intrigued to see what this novel would be like. I was not disappointed, its very readable and is a n excellent beginning to the Bruce books Robyn is writing.
    Having read the Bruce trilogy by Nigel Tranter (a hard act to follow) I enjoyed this version tremendously and am looking forward to the second installment, not to mention reading other books by Robyn Young. Recommended.

  3.  I didn`t want to finish..................


    Knowing this was the final installment of theses superb novels, I just did not want to finish this one. Once again Simon Scarrow has crafted a hugely enjoyable novel which will take pride of place in my book collection alongside the others in the series and Conn Igguldens Genghis Khan novels. Fantastic reads.

  4.  Empire of Silver


    Just as good as the previous Genghis novels, this installment takes us across europe on a truely incredible journey of an army living, fighting, conquering whole nations over many years.
    I tried to take my time, but ended up reading this pretty fast as it was just too difficult not to! Brilliant.

  5.  A real joy


    As a 52 yr old male I was amazed that a) I bought this book and b) just how good it was. Superbly written, totally engaging, sad, wickedly funny and tense right to the end, a brilliant first novel, outstanding. Read it, trust me, you`ll love it.

  6.  Gritty & Brutal


    A great read, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well up to Bernard Cornwell`s high standard, but maybe more graphic and bloody than his previous stories. It chronicles the life of archer, Nicholas Hook and leads to the epic battle of Agincourt in all it`s grim, horrific and brutal detail.
    Very much a harder edge to this read than say the Sharpe novels, but better for it. Highly recommended.

  7.  Simply brilliant.................


    The final part of the Genghis Khan trilogy is simply brilliant. I could not put it down but didn`t want to finish it. Conn Iggulden, along with Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow are the 3 best British historical novelists at present and I urge you read this book (and the 2 others in the series) and any others by the above authors.
    The story has amazing panoramas, sweeping, epic battles and intense, driven characters, all set in a brutal, uncompromising era.
    Just fantastic, can`t wait for the next Conn Iggulden book.

  8.  The Generals


    Just as readable as the first in the series, The Generals follows Napoleon & Wellington on their meteoric rise to military success in Europe and India. Very well written I had to read it but didn`t want to finish ! Eagerly anticipating the next installment.

  9.  Young Bloods: Revolution 1


    Excellent start to this series of novels, I am really looking forward to the next installment. As with this authors previous novels it`s a real page turner. I took it on holiday and had to go out and buy more books as I read this so quickly! Unputdownable!

  10.  Lady in the water


    A haunting, unusual movie, where the monsters really are real. Once again, M. Night delivers. This is based on a bedtime story the director used to tell his kids and turned into a book, well, all I can say is if my parents had read me this before bedtime I`d have been scared whitless!
    It`s a gentle tale, beautifully told with undertones of sheer terror, recommended.
