To me Louis has always been THE documentary film maker, my go to if you like. I like his style, his approach and subject matter.

In truth I had completely forgotten his relationship with Jimmy Saville, so learning so much in here about that subject was wholly unexpected.

This book will be of interest to anyone who has ever wondered whether, or how much of his onscreen persona is really him. A very interesting and honest biography.

Film written all over it

Or miniseries.

I fear for the day that Stephen King either hangs up his quill or naturally passes to the world's other than these. This is a fine tale in his inimitable style that really keeps you engaged throughout.

Great characterisation... Noone to my mind does that as well as him, a pleasing narrative and his usual satisfying conclusion.

He literally cannot write these quickly enough

Struggled with this one a bit

Don't get me wrong I am enjoying the series as a whole, I just found this one a little disjointed with too many threads going on. Little harder to follow than it needed to be.

Lovely twist at the end though and I love the usp that every book ends on a cliffhanger to the next.

Not bad, but I hope the next is slightly more cohesive.

Very informative and eye opening

Id, like many people, heard of the dark Web without any real clue how it worked.

This is really good audio documentary that explains certainly most of it I would think. The most fascinating part for me was finally getting to grips with how bitcoin works, that's bemused me forever.

This was very well put together and presented, it's the sort of documentary you seriously hope Stacey Dooley never gets hold of...

Wonderfully observed journey

Anything Stephen Fry is a delight to behold, I have journeyed with him on the entire Sherlock Holmes collection plus both of his Greek mythology novels.

This is another masterpiece, wonderfully performed as only he can and extremely entertaining both in content and delivery

Definitely recommended

A very pleasing anthology

Definite shades of the twilight zone or outer limits, sort of fantasy with horror overtones. This collection of anthology based stories beautifully follows a single thread.

Presented very much in bite sized chunks, the stories are fun and engaging. They are just the sort of thing that Amazon would turn into a series.

Recommended and bring on book 2

Yes all wrapped up very nicely. I presume that it's over and given the way the novel concludes it probably should be.

Very entertaining overall as has been the whole series, it is perhaps a little perfect the ending feels something like the end of the original star wars, but that's not such a bad thing.

Well read with one caveat - John Cole really does not have the Northern accent it suggests in the text. He sounds something like a cross between David Essex and Danny Dyer in this reading, but that is a minor point.

As with the first two parts, once again recemmended

Really warming to this series

I wasn't quite sure about the first, which I bought on spec, the second I liked much more and this one was even better. Unlike the Joe Ledger series that these are very much akin to, this is very much a continuing narrative rather than distinct stories with common threads.

So much so that these cliffhang at the end of each, well have done so far anyway.

Very enjoyable fantasy adventure and I'll certainly be getting the next one

A very interesting fantasy horror

I felt this was quite King-esque, which in no way is a bad way to start. The book sets up beautifully before becoming a full throttle romp about half way in. Wonderfully crafted characters with a very satisfying conclusion then epilogue. I will certainly be checking out some more of his work

A much improved second

I listened to the first book in the series on the basis of finding the author on a Jonathan maberry compilation novel. It seemed as though I might have found another Joe ledger.

The first book, was ok, but no ledger so I thought I would give the second a try. These take a little warming I think, whereas maberry had me hooked with patient zero instantly. That said I enjoyed this one far more and will be getting the next installment.
