    1 thought on “The Fourth Horseman”

    1. You expect something quite epic with the title, The Fourth Horseman, don't you? You expect explosions, excitement, thrills, action, death, fire, plagues, wars, battles, chaos and - of course - the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Do you get all this from The Fourth Horseman?No. You don't. First off; it was boring. I felt like I was reading a plain white wall. Nothing happened. It also lacked in plot. When I say "lacked in plot" I mean it didn't have a plot FULL STOP. This wasn't a book about the [...]

    2. I've liked some of Kate Thompson's books a lot, but this one really didn't do it for me. I thought the voice was not terribly good and SO much about fate, which tends to annoy me. I don't remember a lot about the book, but this got to me big-time:I don't know why it was that Mum was never there when the most momentous things happened. For some reason she had no part to play in the drama that had started to unfold and that was soon to reach its climax. [:] At least, that was what her fate seemed [...]

    3. Review written: sometime before April 17, 2015The Fourth Horseman by Kate ThompsonWhy I read it: I remember liking some of Kate Thompson's books from years back and decided to scout through my library for some more.Rating: 2/5What I thought: What an odd book. It's a lot like her later Creature of the Night in that the fantastical plot largely occurs at the margins of the book in favour of more realistic concerns, but instead of the main character simply ignoring the former for the most part, her [...]

    4. Laurie’s dad is working on research for some mysterious company involving introducing viruses into native red squirrels so they will infect invasive grey squirrels. Her mother is rarely at home having taken a job as a trainer for the English cricket team. As Laurie helps her father she sees a vision of a king on a white horse in the woods and sees that her dad is mesmerized by the vision but won’t talk about it. As the research proceeds another vision with another horseman appears. Laurie wo [...]

    5. It was ok. Not great though. It was a bit of a weird story to tell the truth. The story starts at the end and then goes on to tell you how they got there. Laurie and her brother worry when their dad is asked to open a lab and conduct an experiment to kill off the population of grey squirrels. In reality he has basically been asked for a chemical to help commit genocide but no-one realises it till the end when as through the book, the four horsemen of the apocalypse slowly appear one by one. A bi [...]

    6. El cuarto jinete es una lectura agradable, ágil, con una historia bien narrada que te atrae desde el principio, aun cuando ya prevemos cual es la trama, y que toca cuestiones del mundo actual inquietantes y que nos animan a pensar. Una buena lectura para chicos de 14 años en adelante que también puede entretener a un adultobrosmagicossonadoresspo

    7. A bland, perfect family plays cricket in the countryside for 250 pages, while something vaguely resembling the beginnings of a plot tries and fails to rear its head - all complete with a delightful 'SCIENCE IS EVIL!' message. Great book if you want to read detailed descriptions of cricket matches (or are particularly fond of squirrels), but do not go in expecting a story.

    8. It was really well planned out and was great -once you understood it and had got a little ways through- overall really liked it.

    9. Wenn das ganze Buch um die Politik in Schasakstan gehen würde wäre es gut, aber der Fantasyteil mit den vier Apokalyptischenreitern hätte nicht sein müssen.

    10. This was a strange book! It was both riveting and frightening. I do hope science will not ever be used in this way.

    11. More Medieval mystery fun, which I love. Some history, some culture and a good mystery. Not deep, but all reading doesn't need to edify. It is alright to be entertained sometimes.

    12. Ich wollte ein Buch über die Apokalyptischen Reiter lesenEs wurde ein Buch über Cricket und dann die Apokyptischen Reiter. Wie gut, dass das Buch ein Flohmarkt fund war :(
