    Nick Stone isn't my favourite fictional character but I can easily spend a few evenings with him without complaint. Brute Force is a cracking read which deserves a wider audience than it got. It'll thrill you and like every other McNab book will leave you with things to think about.

    Andy McNab is one of my favourite mainstream writers. His true to life account of this harrowing tale is so gripping that I read it in two days. It takes me a good week or more to finish a book usually. I urge you to read this. It will change your life.

    I don't usually read books about army or war or anything like that, but I could not put this down. It's intriguing and thought provoking.

    This book is simply lovely. Flows wonderfully and is in some places profound

  • Red Dwarf Omnibus: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers AND Better Than Life: "Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers"

    Amazing, Touching and Memorable

    I have been watching Red Dwarf of television for as long as I can remember. These books are the perfect accompaniment. With snippets from the series, these books take on a life and story of their own and take you on a wonderful journey. They are funny, touching, tragic and exciting. By far the best seires of books I have read in a long time.

  • The Wrestling

    A Wonderful Look At British Wrestling

    I love independantly written books on the history of professional wrestling, they are so much better and less political than a corporate publication. This book sums up a portion of British professional wrestling perfectly. A great job.
