Product Description

Review

'Ruth Rendell has quite simply transformed the genre of crime writing. She deploys her peerless skill in blending the mundane, commonplace aspects of life with the potent, murky impulses of desire and greed, obsession and fear' Anthony Clare, Sunday Times 'Her most brilliant Wexford mystery to date... The plot is complicated and elaborately detailed but, as usual, there is not one superfluous word... stunning imagery' Kate Saunders, Cosmopolitan 'Beyond praise, completely compelling - will delight all Wexford's admirers' Allan Massie, The Scotsman 'Impressive and courageous... Rendell's psychological and social insights are so absorbing, it's easy to forget what a superb plotter she is. As a mystery, Simisola is exceptional... pace, surprise, tension and a climax of stunning unexpectedness' The Times 'Not only the finest crime novelist, but one of the finest novelists writing in the English language' Scotsman 'The book could hardly be more readable... A brilliant evocation of place, character and mood' Evening Standard 'With immaculate control, Ruth Rendell builds a menacing crescendo of tension and horror that keeps you guessing right up to the brilliantly paced finale' Good Housekeeping 'Rendell is the absolute mistress of plot' Mail on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was the first book I had read by Lesley Pearse and it certainly won't be the last. I was completely addicted from the first to the last page and found myself burning the midnight oil to complete this book. Camellia had to go through so much in order to find out her true identity and it kept me guessing to the very end. Lesley Pearse writes in such a powerful way, conjuring up a mixture of emotions that the reader just can't help experiencing with the characters. I found myself almost wishing I was there with Camellia. The only down side of the book was that it had to end. I have since purchased 'Georgia, Charity and Never Look Back' and am looking forward to reading them. I only hope they live up to 'Camellia'.

this review might sound abit weird as i am only 15 but i think that lesley Pearse has out done herself. Camellia is one of my favourite books. But it does help if you read Ellie first then go on to read Camellia. there is only one word that can describe this book-FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

This was the first Lesley Pearse book I have read, and turned to the first page half-heartedly as so many books are a let down, however I was thrilled to find this to be an exception! From the word go, I was gripped...I found myself running off to my room at every opportunity to try and snatch five minutes of reading..of course these five minutes always turned to a couple of hours, because Lesley Pearse really is a woman who knows exactly how to write a page-turner! I was absolutely fascinated, and the vivid character descriptions captured my mind, my imagination, and every spare moment of my life! This book is possibly the most emotional, and enthralling book I have ever had the fortune to discover!!

Another outstanding book by Lesley Pearse. I have read quite a few of hers now and I am NEVER disappointed.
When I finished Camellia I felt like I had lost a friend. I'd love to read more on her and see how her life turned out - I know it is only fiction but I am hooked!
Only one thing though... I have also got the book Ellie that I purchased at the same time as Camellia. I read Camellia first and now I have started Ellie, I feel like I know all about her from the final chapters of Camellia. Should I have read Ellie first? I think so... Any comments on this? Thank you.

I haven't even finished this book yet but I felt compelled to write a review already!!

I was engrossed from page 1! I am just over halfway through and I am still fascinated the way that Lesley Pearse creates twists and turns for Camellia that are so unexpected.

I Love it.

However, only just found out that reading the novel "Ellie" first is always helpful.

i am a massive lesley pearse fan and have read a few of her books. this is by far one of my favourites so far, it was very gripping and hard to put down. would recommend this to any women, although keep it away from the kids as some of the scenes are very sexually explicit! Fantastic!

I have read 2 books of Lesley Pearse and became a fan. A week ago I started to read Camellia and have had to abandon it. I'm not a prude, but can't stand to read pages and pages of porn, sexual deviation etc. etc. I like to read a good story and not pages and pages of sex. All the other Lesley Pearse books have some sexual descriptions, but that is OK for me - just can't stand the detailed descriptions and the number of pages taken up with it, rather than the story of the girls - there is no need for it. I will look carefully at her other books before I buy them. I loved the first two and I'm sure most of the others will be just as good as the first two.

I am a HUGE Lesley Pearse fan, especially her historical fiction. I have to say that this book, unfortunately, was not one of my favourites. It was good, but a bit predictable, kind of figured out how it was going to end before I got anywhere near the end!

As always Lesley doesn't fail to bring her books to life, her attention to detail regarding the time period she writes is incredible. You could almost smell the grease of the little back street cafe, the smell of smoke and the noise in the packed out clubs. You could also get an impression of what London looked and sounded like in the mid to late 60's and 70's.

I felt there was unfinished business with some of the characters, for example Raymond and the inheritance that was left by his mother. What happened to Edward, these are things I would have liked to know...but, I don't think there is enough to make a follow up book to answers these and other questions.

It was a decent read, but its one I could put down and not read again, which is unusual for me and any Lesley Pearse book.
