Description

You see, I never would have picked up this book normally, as for me, the plot came across as being a bit samey, and frankly, I thought it was going to be dull. With a shady authority known as the Time Police on their tail, will the Timeseekers be able to save us all? Sounds like a common set up, but here is where it gets really interesting: each section starts with a first person narrative as the first chapter.

Warwick finds himself and the heart of the cases, but only time will tell if he can catch the killers before it's too late. Story gets monotonous to the core, author could have simply finished the book in a trilogy manner but now there are 6 more books in the series, the plot is lost, the story too predictable. After lunch with my uncle Stan, one bite of his Marmite sandwich, his discarded apple core and a swig of beer, I would be back at school in time for a game of football; the only activity I considered it worth turning up for.But past encounters with an ex are never far away, and when Harry befriends Giles Barrington, his meddlesome, fraudulent father, Hugo, does his best to deny what happened between Harry’s mother and himself all those years ago. Percy was as desperate to be offered a place at Eton as I was to be rejected, so I saw this as no more than an opportunity for both of us to achieve our purpose. On the day before the examination was due to take place my father drove me to Eton in his swish new Bugatti, which could do a hundred miles an hour, and once we hit the A4 he proved it. I haven't come across that sort of blatant ass-kissing of a fictional character since I read Stephanie Meyer's homage to the Supreme Glorious Awesome Majestic Sparkleness that is His Magnificence, Edward Cullen. I rather enjoyed being addressed as ‘my lord’ by all and sundry, even if it was only for a few hours.

But after he is expelled he gets caught up in an international incident that could put his life in jeopardy . I was good at making up stories, but it wasn’t long before she discovered that was all they were: stories. The author attempts to end every chapter with some sort of mysterious tease, clearly intended to make the reader curious but it gets annoying after a bit because it always ends in predictable anti-climax. I nearly got myself expelled from my prep school for stealing – heaven knows how he managed to fix that – and after that I let him down by failing to get into Eton.I also had to keep an eye out for Mr Haskins, the chief ganger, because if he ever found me loitering, to use his favourite word, he would send me off with a kick up the backside and the threat: ‘If I see you loiterin’ round here again, my lad, I’ll report you to the headmaster. The writing flowed eloquently, and at times, maybe a little too much, but this was saved by the masterful storytelling. Maisie knows the truth about Harry's parentage, and a few people know the truth about Arthur Clifton's death, but no one tells Harry anything. Jeffrey is published in 114 countries and more than 47 languages, with more than 750,000 5* reviews with international sales passing 275 million copies. The author excels in doling out tiny crumbs of suspense and keeps the tempo up to the last page where it ends with a really excellent cliff-hanger….

Once we’d handed in our papers and reverted to our true personas, I went off to tea with my pa, in Windsor. Volume one takes us from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take up a place at Oxford, or join the navy and go to war with Hitler’s Germany.I will be among thousands lined up to get my hands on the second book in the series to find out what happens next.
