Another re-run of time travel paradoxes resolved by the changes to the past creating exactly the future that is desired to be avoided. The writing and characterization are pretty well done. Worth the read, but don't expect anything joltingly new here.
good to study
A story of a cat losing itís 9 lives. Not one of the author's better works. Only mildly entertaining and the joke at the end was mediocre at best.
A little humorous and very fascinating, I've added this book and its sequel to my favorites list.If you like gentlemen crook stories this one is worth your time.
A swashbuckling romance typical to the other authorís books. The storyline and adventure was good but although the son was rude, you would have expected more maternal feelings toward him, so the ending wasnít as heartwarming as I would have preferred.
This is some really interesting reading.It's more a like a collection of short railroad stories,very well written.
Well, yes, I did see the ending coming from almost the first time the painting was mentioned. I must be too blasť, stuff like this doesn't thrill me or give me nightmares.
If you like boogie-boogie stories, you might like this, other reviewers have. When you've finished it, please download The Picture of Dorian Gray.
A rather amoral Haitian seaman decides the tribal law of the San Blas natives forbidding outsiders to interbreed with them doesn't apply to him. He has noticed a native girl and means to have her.
An easy-going story of doom, with much good description, bloody action, and good characterizations. If you like Caribbean adventure stories, this is a good one.
A Welsh traitor is condemned to a long life of scorn and cursed that his children will always have bad luck, and in the 10th generation the son will kill the father and the family line will end. This is the story of the 9th and 10th generations, and the slowly evolving resolution of the curse.
Some good descriptions and plotting. I felt it was a short story rather than a historical account, just as Hamlet is a play rather than a historical account.
