    Forgotten Tunnels – a fantastic read. Well written and grabs you early on in the book. I look forward to reading the next book.

    I like books that start immediately, without an introdution and The Forgotten Tunnels is one of them. It is written from the sight of Millie, a lovable black and bouncy dog and every child MUST love her from the beginning on. With her brother Jez she is trapped in Ramsgate’s forgotten tunnels and has to get through very thrilling adventures, meets a lot of strange creatures, dead and alife.

    You will find all these things that children love to read in this story: animals that can speak, ghosts, forbidden places, thrilly situations, good and evil, bright and dark, mysterious beings like skulkers and visions, arcane places like vortex and gast, a dog-language understanding gir and much more.

    And if you want to know, where Millie and Jez come from, what they experienced in their former life and how they found their human friends Hannah and Jack, you learn it in the second part of the book.

    I could not stop to read, had to learn, how the story comes to its end.., Happy or Sad.
    And, yes, it comes to an end, but I don’t want to betray too much.
    One question should be allowed:
    Will the adventures of Millie and Jez be continued?

    Home Hounds — really a sweet short-story (not too short) about a sort of DOG-FAMILY on the beach. I always wanted to know, what dogs are thinking the whole day and talking to each other, if they stand nose-tail side by side. Now I know!

    I’m sure: Runner and Tally are coming back soon, somehow or other.

    Home Hounds — a very sweet short story, it’s interesting to read something from the perspective of a dog/the dogs, and gives an insight into what might be going on their little heads! Lovely little story, I do recommend!

    I downloaded Nobody There to my Kindle as I wanted something to read while I was on the train yesterday and I am so glad that I did. It is a Great story that kept me gripped and this is definitely a story that you should read. I have now read all three books and I have to say I am a big fan already. A N Barden is a great story teller.

    I started reading The Forgotten Tunnels and I couldn’t put it down until I had finished it. I just had to see what happened to Jez & Millie. A great story.

  • Darren Jewell says on Home Hounds

    After reading The Forgotten Tunnels I had been waiting in anticipation for a new book by A N Barden and the wait is over. Home Hounds was a joy to read and it is so well written, I couldn’t stop reading because I wanted to see how the story finishes. Home Hounds as you can guess is about a bunch of dog buddies that communicate with each other, that is all I am going to tell you because I don’t want to spoil it for you. Highly Recommended Read

  • Susanne says on Nobody there

    I thought, I read a book about my mom. Many of you will recognize your own parents — heady, distrustfull, lonely. How many oldies live their lifes in this way?
    AN Barden discribes that life with love and waggishness.
    My favorite part is the mobility scooter, never saw so many as in the UK!
    Very different to the other books, more than highly recommended read.

  • Liz says on The Forgotten Tunnels

    I have wanted to read this book for quite a while after my son told me how good it was, but as I am not used to the kindle I wanted to wait until he was around. Finally I have read it and I finished it in one day. A N Barden is a great story teller and I thought the book was really really good so much so that after reading it I asked my son if there was any more to read.
