A great man once asked, “War – what is it good for?” People will jump to the quick conclusion that the answer is nothing (absolutely nothing huh). However, without war economies would falter (see USA) and inventions would flounder (see Microwave Ovens). The fact is that in today’s society war is a way of making money. One conflict that has been ongoing since WW2 is between Israel and Palestine. These two peoples are not officially at war, yet their dealings with one another have left 1000s dead. The facts are that the Middle East is a powder keg and any author looking to set a book in the region must be sensitive to the politics. Therefore, if you were going to ... Read the complete review

I was given a couple of Paul Sussman books a couple of years ago as part of a birthday present. From the look of the blurb at first it did not look like the kind of novel I would normally read. My main problem with so called historical novels is that when it comes to the historical inaccuracies in them you need more than both hands and feet to count them up on. Anyway I was off on holiday and it would involve a flight and trains so grabbed a couple of books and this was one of them. Brief Plot: In 70 A.D. the Holy Temple of Jerusalem is being besieged by the Roman army. Their aim is to take the treasures back to Rome - and kill everyone ... Read the complete review

It was, I expect, inevitable that the Da Vinci Code would turn into a point of reference for a certain type of book, rightly or wrongly. In the same way that when a band becomes big, every other record label wants to have their version of that act, publishing houses are also looking for their version of Dan Browns hit novel. It could even be that the lasting legacy of that controversial book was not the questions it made us ask but the doors it opened for other, better, books to get the recognition they deserve and to get into the high street markets so much more easily. The blurb on the cover of Paul Sussmans hit book states "the intelligent readers answer to The .. Read the complete review

Like I always do, lets again start first with how I came across this. So when I had gone over to the US, my aunt took me to a book store and told me to choose a book under 15$. No, I'm not a kid but still, she didn't know what to get me so gave me the choice. I went through a lot of books, and then found this book. I debated for a while whether or not to get this book. Then finally, I made the choice of this book. When I first started reading it, I felt it to be boring. But then, I forced myself to read further on. And then, the suspense part started. I couldn't keep the book down for a second until it was finished. Its truly great. Lets go into ... Read the complete review
