  • "Delightful"

    Overall

    Story

    Not my usual book preference, but I bought after reading good reviews. This is a really sweet, delightful tale. Having close contact with people on both Aspergers and Autistic spectra - I found this really fascinating. Our 'hero' has absolutely no idea how his reactions and responses are viewed by other people, he knows he is a 'bit odd' (aren't we all), and he does manage to modify his behaviour. I really enjoyed reading this, it is written in the first person and is fascinating.

    Meet Don. Don is a genetics professor who just might be somewhere on the autistic spectrum. He looks a little like Gregory Peck and is getting married. He just doesn't know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. And it's definitely not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not .Rosie, meanwhile, isn't looking for love; she's looking for her biological father. Sometimes, though, you don't find love: love finds you...

    Stephen says: "Superb character"
  • "A Surprise"

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book, the narration is excellent, and although the story isn't my usual reading material - I was absolutely gripped, and like some other reviewers I am now thinking - 'My goodness! How long must I wait for the next instalment?'

    The characters were brilliantly drawn and I loved the way the storytelling switches between the main characters and one sees the story from differing points of view.

    I enjoyed Jeffrey Archer's original books and bought this on the strength of those, however when I found that the story was of a different genre I was initially disappointed - but how wrong I was.

    I really cared what happened in the lives of the characters, and cannot wait for the existing 'cliff-hanger' to be explained.

    The Clifton Chronicles is Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious work in four decades as an international best-selling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, 'I was told that my father was killed in the war'. But it will be another twenty years before Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to question: who was his father?

  • "Oh No!!!!!"

    Overall

    I have just listened to this, having waiting on tenterhooks for this sequel to be released! I felt quite uneasy in parts of the novel because I was so 'wound up' in the fates of our family that I could see disasters falling, and I became tense .......... having finished it over two days - I am now WAITING FOR THE NEXT PART!!!!!!



    Really a gripping tale - I really care what happens to the Cliftons and the Barringtons .... Lots of intrigue, lots of clever plans - but now ..... How long until number 4.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.
