Reviews - What do customers think about Death Penalty?
The Gretest Piece of Literature Ever Written May 25, 2002
Despite not being a classic, there is no doubting that Death Penalty possesses an amazing script, characterization and outcome. Quite simply, the novel is irresistable and deserves to be read again and again.
Hamley has somehow managed to create a plot which is completely choc-a-bloc full of action, suspense, significant clues and a character which can be related to in Stu.
There are no flaws in this novel.
The mass selection of characters would seem confusing, however Hamley has allowed the reader to relate to them and realise who they are, easily and rapidly. This is unlike the classic novels PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, HARRY POTTER and the over rated LORD OF THE RINGS.
The suspense builds up to the absolute extreme, through the frequent occurances of relevant and important incidents.
With it's status in the crime genre and it's basis of soccer, many readers will become involved in the novel, and not just crime or soccer fans, due to it's lyrical beauty.
The climax is so surprising, unexpected and dramatic, i will not even begin to mention the slightest detail about the ending.
This book is recommended for, quite simply, anyone over 12.
You will end up loving this novel, it's inevitable
And any directors or fim makers out there, this book is made for the movies, and will attract masses to the cinema.
Well done Dennis Hamley, every award in Literature should be awarded to you due to DEATH PENALTY!
Good, if you're a football fan Aug 13, 2000
I didn't enjoy this as much as others in the Point crime series because, although the mystery was clever and intriguing, there was a lot of football information which made the book very boring in parts, especially near the beginning. If you like football, you would probably love this book, which is a mystery set around a football team, Radwick Rangers when someone is murdering the players. There are too many characters to keep track of at first until you sort them out into unimportant and important. Anyway, it was okay but I recommend something like 'Dying For You' more if you're not intrested in football.
