I’ve read Guy’s previous books and enjoyed them this was reasonable, and I still enjoyed it, but the flow of the book wasn’t as good and it came across a bit confused.

Good book, sadly main character milton not quite as good as reacher. It is a little surprising that he makes it to the end of the book.

What disappointed you about Vicious Circle?

Pretty abhorrent material about child abuse and rape. No real need for this material. There was none of the historical or geographical context of previous novels. This made the novel lack depth.

What could Wilbur Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Take out the child abuse bits. .

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narrator was ok

What character would you cut from Vicious Circle?

Nil

Any additional comments?

No

One of the best books I have read for a while. I previously thought leadership was something you had or you hadn't. The compass model explains leadership very well and explains how you might learn or teach leadership.

I thought this might struggle as an audio book but it does work. There is a lot about the reasons behind body language which enabled the author to clump body language in to bite sized chunks to make it digestable.

a bit slow

Probably not the right book for me but a bit slow and there wasn't enough interest generated to keep me listening.

Interesting concepts

A really interesting book. It would be even better if it was distilled and condensed but there is enough in it to keep you going to the end.

Jeffrey Deaver is just the person to write the new bond book. He can intertwine several different facets of a plot and bring them together at the end to a nail biting conclusion. He brought Bond into the 21st century and made him believable. Great book I hope he writes another.
