A male perspective on The TWisted Vine

The Twisted Vine by Alex Martin http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0089M2TSM/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_alp_EAB8qb1JAAFJ6 via @amazon

Just had a new 5* review for the Twisted Vine from a bloke!  Nice to hear what he thought -here goes:
Not just a girlie tale, 8 Jan 2013

Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)

This review is from: The Twisted Vine (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book as a Christmas read, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The descriptions of wine growing and the French countryside, landscapes and people were excellently drawn. The book did what it said on the blurb, a thriller with a French bouquet. The style was sharp and well observed and evocative, the thriller part, (and speaking as a bloke), I would have liked to have been a little more "Ooomphy", but that is a very minor criticism and does not detract from the five stars I have given, and which this book richly deserves.

However, another reader wrote: Not sure about the 'oomphy' I thought it was pretty exciting - but then - she was a girl.

Do girls know best?
I'm biassed - what do you think?
