    1. Try as I might I just couldn't really get into this book. The story sounds promising - the meteoric rise of a female MP, a sinister plot involving "defence" weapons with a bit of romance thrown in - but, for me, the writing style was a bit dry and plodding so I found I could only manage a couple of chapters at a time before becoming bored with it.It did give an interesting insight into the world of British and International politics but you definitely come away with the feeling that most of the [...]


    2. Meh. I'm not really a fan of this book, to be honest. The summary sounded really good and I was excited to read it, but it was far more political than I was expecting, and this made it incredibly hard to read.For me, this novel never really got going. It was just a clear political statement from start to finish, and to be perfectly honest, it was dull. The only exciting parts of the story were the interactions between Kate and Deepak, but even these were few and far between. They were also compl [...]


    3. Open Arms sets out to be a political thriller but fails to excite and presents a depressing view of the workings of government. It also shows the danger of predicting events in the near future – but then the author was not the only one who expected a crushing election defeat of the opposition by a female Conservative Prime Minister following the Brexit vote.The plot had some interesting potential, but the heavy narrative style read more like a report of events so there was little feeling of su [...]


    4. Mr Cable knows politics at local and government level. He know the arms business and quite a lot about India.He does not know how to write a thriller.This book has no drama, no humour.The characters are from a dusty shelf in an old Woolworths. Hackneyed phrases abound:"They got in under the radar. They must have an inside source."The bad guys are "unsavoury small fry" and are "at the bottom of criminal food chain."And my favourite:"The political wind blowing in the wrong direction."I will strugg [...]


    5. Political Thrillers are not really my cup of tea if I am being honest but I enjoyed the majority of the book. There are an awful lot of disparate characters and in the early stages it is a little confusing as to who is who and what they have to do with the story but it soon begins to gel. I was impressed with how well Vince Cable brought all the various strands and characters together at the end of the book. About halfway through I did start to lose heart and think that it was just going to be a [...]


    6. A first novel from a man with much experience of the worlds he portrays. A political thriller taking in arms dealers, local and national politics in Britain, India and Pakistan, islamism and a bit of business skullduggery on the way. In some ways it is a typical first novel. Cable tells a good story: there needs to be less telling and more showing. Characters are reasonably drawn, but not sufficiently differentiated in dialogue; and his writing reflects the detached bonhomie of his public person [...]
