By A. Rose TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Nov. 2006
Format: Paperback
I had enough spare time to read this book in two or three sittings and really enjoyed it, however, it's the sort of story that if left for too long or read in short bits over a period of time can seem a bit sad and maudlin. Having said that, the emotions of a mother & father losing a son and sister losing her brother can only be of a sad nature. I thought the book was well written and dealt with the emotions of each family member, and also the deceased's best friend, with the right amount of sentiment and sympathy. For me, the `mothers dilemma' was a bit unbelievable but the dilemma was well explored and expressed in a very acceptable way. All in all, a good book but don't put it down for too long as the depressing tone may not inspire you to pick it up again.

...but not one to read if you are feeling depressed. I have given it three stars because although I thought it was well written and an interesting [if rather unbelievable] story, it was very sad and there was a real sense of dreariness about the characters. This wasn't surprising, given the nature of the event at the beginning of the story but it did make it a bit of a dull read.

I thought all the characters were well portrayed and I could visualise them and their surroundings easily. However, I was deeply irritated that the baby was nick-named "Sock". What an abysmal nick-name [short for Socrates, apparently] - every time I read it, I felt cross!

Where Rosie Thomas certainly shines is in her descriptions of foreign countries [her more recent books are often set overseas] and in this one the sections set in Italy really bring some warmth and colour to this story.

As usual a well written intelligent book. However the story line is based on bereavement therefore not a book that raises ones spirits. Glad to have read it though not a book I would read again as I would many of her others.

I hate giving books a bad review but I get frustrated that I have a habit of picking more books that I don't enjoy than ones that I do!
And - unfortunately, this was one of the disappointments.
For a start, I couldn't decide (and still can't make my mind up) if Rosie Thomas's elaborate and colourfull descriptions of everything were a bit overdone and unnecessary - in fact I think they were. The flowery descriptions in the end got on my nerves.
Then, there's the unbelieveable sequence of events that made up the storyline, it turned into a bit of a panto in the end. Did someone really describe it as an 'intelligent read' (as it says on the cover)? - Did they actually read the book!!??
I didn't think the characters were very well described either, I found it hard to warm to them.
Someone else, in their review said "The main character, Jess, is undescribed and comes across as a dreary, boring, sexless person. When she begins an affair with Danny's older friend, Rob, I felt it hard to sustain my belief in the situation." I COULDN'T AGREE MORE.

Give it a miss. Not well written and a poor story line. Sorry Rosie Thomas!

It was a good read and kept one turning the pages. Some of the plotlines were a bit far fetched and the subject matter was not upbeat. I enjoyed it nevertheless.

Can't remember much about this, think I put it out for the charity shop before I even got halfway. What a boring book.
