Book Review

This pocket sized book is a wee gem filled with old photographs and pictures of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Each photo tells a story and Norman Adams narrates this as he delves into the history of The Granite City. For example there are several pages about the trams of Aberdeen, The Carries, and their demise which ended in them being burned at the beach in 1958.

My new novel:

The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Aberdeen City

Aberdeen City is full of statues and monuments and this is an ideal book for those who are interested in their origins and the story behind each one. I've often walked past the Mannie Well at the Castlegate, but never knew it was once located at Green where until 1972 it was part of a well.

Union Street, the heart of Aberdeen, features heavily in the book, from parades such as The Aberdeen Festival to scenes of queues for prominent concerts and new cinemas.

Aberdeen boasts some of the oldest buildings in Scotland and indeed the UK. Provost Skene's House is one such example and it is great to see this 17th Century building featured in this book and how it was saved from demolition by Queen Elizabeth.

Stories and Photographs of the Second World War Aberdeen

There are stories and photographs of the Second World War, including bomb damage from the many raids of the German Air Force, The Luftwaffe.

Royal Deeside

Royal Deeside and Aberdeen has strong Royal Family connections and visits such as the visit by the Royal Yacht Victoria and Albert and Britannia to Aberdeen docks are recorded and pictured. The relationship with the North Sea is continued with photos and text about the fishing and oil trade through the years. There are also photos and descriptions of Aberdeen's lovely beach.

Views from Pittodrie and text about the history of Aberdeen football Club brings us up to date. I hope the author treats us to further volumes of this great wee book.

The Wee Book Of Aberdeen is a book to enjoy either in one sitting or to flick through in an idle moment. However you choose to read the book I know you'll enjoy seeing the changing face of Aberdeen, The Silver City With The Golden Sands, as you turn each historic photo and read about this marvellous City of ours.

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
