Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

Review: The Reluctant Anarchist

Leave a comment

The Reluctant Anarchist The Reluctant Anarchist by Daniel J Pitcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kindle format:

“Mark Skiller is unemployed & disillusioned, his life going nowhere. 
James Williams is the young, rising star of the cabinet widely expected to be a future Prime Minister.
Their lives are about to collide with devastating circumstances.”

Not quite what I was expecting but it’s very readable although there’s quite a bit of use of the “F” word but it fits into the style of the writing and the characters so for that I don’t mind so much.

I’m a little short of half way through at the moment and the main character Mark is just starting to find out exactly what his new found friends are all about and he’s not sure if that’s where he wants to be right now…

Available on Amazon for Kindle.

6th July 2012: Okay, so now I’ve finished this book and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by it. Even more so considering I came across the novel quite by accident!

Thanks too to Daniel for sending me a complimentary copy 🙂

All kinds of temptations were laid out before Mark so this book had a bit of everything including sex and violence. The characters were believable too which is always a plus.

I also loved the reference to “Jack Reacher” (author Lee Child) as I know from contact I’ve had with Daniel (author of Reluctant Anarchist) that he too is a big fan of Reacher and he, along with his wife are (not so) eagerly awaiting the forthcoming movie based on the Lee Child novel One Shot. Sadly, the movie will star Tom Cruise who really is not and can never be “Reacher” but – that’s another story….. The reference in the Reluctant Anarchist made me grin with delight!

I really enjoyed it so I reckon I could be looking out for more Daniel J Pitcher novels in the future.
