Children of the Revolution (2013)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: A decent book, nice and solid, but nothing outstanding. Does EVERYONE have to fall for Banks, though? Seriously, the man is often mean (cf: the previous book), petulant, sarcastic without provocation, and suspicious (an occupational hazard, but still not the most attractive of ...

review 1: Have read most all the DCI Banks series and watched many of the TV series but this book was tedious! Slow. Great Annie was recovered from the big shoot out last book in series but hardly a mention of the daughter. Yet again another beautiful colleague hanging on, high heels and...

review 1: I,ve been watching the Detective Inspector Banks series on television. The reviews could have been better but I quite liked the series so I was looking forward to reading the novels, so much so that I have downloaded 17 of them in anticipation. I picked this novel at random fr5o...

review 1: An absolute belter! I have to admit I felt a little let down at the ending in All the Colours of Darkness although it was still a great read. But this . . . what a return to form. Absolutely superb. The tendrils of the events, emotions and characters in these Banks books weave th...

English

review 1: This is a pretty solid collection of short stories. It benefits from some eclecticism--there's one story that's clearly fantasy--and from some tweaking of the conventions of mystery fiction--in a few stories, for instance, the killer gets away with it. However, Robinson is genera...

review 1: I have read all of the Inspector Banks series. I enjoy them not just for mystery but for the character development of Banks and the team. Although I enjoyed the read as usual it does not show any new development in Banks or really any of the team with the exception perhaps of Wi...

review 1: Peter Robinson's "All The Colors Of Darkness" is a fully developed "novel of suspense" featuring Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks that parallels William Shakespeare's play "Othello." Based in England, Robinson makes the story richer and more enjoyable by describing the interi...

review 1: Abattoir Blues is an improvement on Children of the Revolution, which I found to be too mass-market, formulaic and bland. I liked the expansion on some of the usual but not deeply explored characters, such as Winsome and Burgess. I think that added to the novel rather than detrac...

review 1: Bit of a mixed bag, really. The final story was interesting in 'filling in' the missing pieces of Banks' London years, but, otherwise...Without having visited Canada, I don't really get a feel for the stories set in Toronto.The "Christmas Banks" was a bit lame, to be honest, and ...

review 1: Yet another example of that the best laid plans go ashtray. Derek Wyman had a plan which unfortunately didn't turn out exactly the way he would have wanted. Not in his dreams would he have expected a result of something like this. It happens with everyone.If you intend to read it...
