    1. It was OK, it was like a boy's own adventure story with a totally ridiculous sex scene between two totally exhausted people in a jungle, very silly and unnecessary.

    2. The Secret Chamber is set in the Congo, Africa and is centred on two main characters. Luca Matthews a professional climber who travels to the Congo to rescue his best friend, a doctor who has gone missing, while working there. Beatrice Makuru a mining expert is sent into the Congo to investigate a mine and the substance it is producing. The mining industry across the region mine for a substance called Coltan, which is a major component of mobile phones and laptops. The Mine in the Ituri Forests, [...]

    3. It took me 3 weeks to get through this book which is a sure indication that I shouldn't have started it in the first place. The secret chamber of the title was anything but a secret as nearly every character in the book seemed to know where and what it was. The plot was very predictable - hero with emotional baggage, strong female who he falls in love with, nasty government type out to line his own pockets etc etc. Not bad enough not to finish but not different enough to leave any lasting impres [...]

    4. This is one that I have read before. I had previously read it before reading the first and although they are technically stand alone stories, reading the first one gives more of a sense of what has shaped Lucas character and why he behaves as he does. A really good plot and some interesting characters make this a good read and it is very well written.

    5. The title of this is somewhat misleading, as you quickly learn that is is an entire area of country that people disappear into owing to the presence of a ruthless rebel army. It was an interesting story but very bloodthirsty.

    6. An adventure with a few thrills and plenty of clichés. A high-octane ride spoilt by a moment of ridiculous passion in the jungle. Silly.
