5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, easy read, May 2 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a cute story. Although it is modern, fluffy fiction, it is still odd to read stories set in the fairly recent past in which no on has a mobile phone.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - thick sugar syrup, no ginger found, Nov. 24 2014

WARNING - any future buyers of this sugar syrup, that's what it is. I dare anyone to find a hint of ginger in the guk. It is made in China and is terrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Neither current or informative, March 16 2012
This review is from: Chennai & Tamil Nadu (Paperback)
I purchased this guide book as seeing it was published in December 2011 and we were on our way to Tamil Nadu in February 2012, had expected up to date information.

It is beyond me as to why Michael Palin would endorse the book (see front cover) as he nor the authors had been in the Indian state ever or at least in this century.

Much of the information was wrong and or out of date. For example, restaurants in Pondicherry listed in the book were either closed or had changed owners. In the other case of the Hotel de l'Orient in that city/state, the description of a fabulous view made me laugh as the building is a courtyard style 3 blocks away from the sea.

Museum & temple opening times and prices are often wrong too.

The Footprint company should edit publications before printing and offering them for sale and emphasize current, up to date details.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bollocks!, Nov. 24 2009
This review is from: The Lost Symbol (Hardcover)
Dan Brown has lost the knack for plausible storytelling. I could barely get through the book and stuck with it only to read about Freemasonry and symbolism in the architecture of D.C. The characters are incompetent and irrational. The ridiculous religious sermon is too much too.

My copy was ordered from Amazon and it is very poorly printed and assembled book. The margins slant on diagonals on badly cut pages. Shame on the publisher.

I can't even think of anyone to pass the book on to as am embarrassed to admit buying it. Save your money and buy Richard Dawkins' brilliant The Greatest Show on Earth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous, April 20 2009
I stuck with this one to the end and maybe should have quit early on. I bought the book based on some good art history observations in Navarro's Secret Supper. My expectations sank with the convoluted, absurd and badly reasoned premise of this Shroud tale. The author missed a real opportunity to show how Leondardo da Vinci created the image on the cloth in what is the first recorded photographic negative. She does make slight comments about the relic industry. Since religions were invented, making and selling talismans and amulets has always been lucrative.
