The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry

Clumsy is the best word to describe it ten chapters in. I hope it tightens up in terms of writing style.
Nope – a few chapters later and the decision is to not bother any more. The Dan Brown Legacy is safe if this is par for the course. This book is really poorly written, with a plot (as far as I got) as dull as I’ve read in long time. Give it a miss.



Rascal Money by Joseph R. Garber

An oldish book (written in 1989) about computer-related matters ought not to have dated well, but this one defies that expectation and turned out to be a really good read. I came across this book by chance and thought I’d give it a go and was not disappointed. The front blurb equating it to Catch 22 is rather hyperbolic and, frankly, silly.
