Book Description

17 May 2007
Despite her broken heart, when Dilly Gently joins Magnus Olensen's new band, the chemistry between them is explosive. Both impossibly romantic dizzy blondes with the souls of poets, they could be made for each other. But before they have chance to declare themselves, Dilly's friend Nell confides that she has a huge crush on Magnus, and Dilly nobly steps down in order to play reluctant matchmaker. Nell returns the favour by setting her friend up with her dashing twin brother Flipper. But Flipper the bounder is not a good rebound for a true romantic. He hides a secret that could break Dilly's heart all over again . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read 19 Nov 2006
Format:Hardcover
Although this isn't the best book I have read by Fiona Walker, it's certainly well worth a read. There were times I felt annoyed at the characters, and had to resist the urge to shout at them to stop faffing about. But overall an enjoyable read. I also enjoyed finding out what was happening with the characters in the previous two books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 13 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
So I spent the money and bought Fiona Walker's latest even though after reading the last two releases I said I wouldn't. There won't be a next time. I have read all her books, and her early ones were fabulous but this Oddlode series is dire.

Not only is the plot dull, the writing is lazy and the characters poorly developed. I was in a constant state of confusion about who was feeling what and why, and there is so much waffling, especially early on, I found myself bored. Not something I can say has occured previously with her books.

Not only that, I found one blatant error and another sentence which made absolutely no sense at all.

Please, if you havent read Fiona Walker at all, skip the Oddlode series and try French Relations, Well Groomed, Snap Happy or any of the other early ones.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed - again.. 16 Nov 2006
By Katie H
Format:Hardcover
Reluctantly I think it's now time for me to give up on Fiona Walker. I absolutely loved her early books but the last three have been diabolical. I really tried to get into this one but gave up halfway through - a first for me. There are simply too many better books out there to waste precious reading time on this one.

Fiona seems to have changed from a witty relaxed style into a poor imitation of Jilly Cooper, down to the Cotswolds setting, the spoiled rich kids and the ridiculous and pretentious character names. I'm sorry but it all just got on my nerves.

If you're new to Fiona Walker I highly recommend her early books, just give the most recent three a wide berth!

Have just finished Four Play and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a much better read than 'Lots of Love' and 'Tongue in Cheek'. The characters are easier to like and as you recognise so many from the previous two books you feel like you know them. I am also a huge fan of Fiona Walker's earlier books and would love for another 'French Relations' or 'Kiss Chase' I say don't give up on her yet as you never know... a new Tash might be just around the corner!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 14 Nov 2006
Format:Hardcover
Not sure what has happened to Fiona Walker's books of late as this one was very disappointing and took me a long time to get into and even longer than normal to finish. However, it wouldn't stop me looking forward to her next one as I think she is a normally fabulous author who just happened to maybe have hit a bad run.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confused and disappointing 28 Feb 2009
By istara
Format:Hardcover
Like other early novels by Fiona Walker, Four Play begins with strong elements of an early Jilly Cooper novel (think Polo or The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous). Sadly the cast of characters is too bottom heavy - with far too many unrealistically beautiful young people (~20-25) who all unconvincingly claim all the time to be passionately in love with one another.

The ending of the book is just bizarre. It bears no resemblance whatsoever to the blurb (Flipper hiding "a secret" - what was it?) and the circumstances in which the two completely obvious lovers eventually unite are sour and complicated. In a light-hearted romance novel one at least wants a clean happy ending; but this is just a mess.

The older characters are not well drawn or developed. The plot is shallow, poorly driven, and its denouement (if one can legitimately call it a denouement, it was more a straggled series of non-revelations and muddled events) greatly unsatisfying.

Ultimately you end up not caring about any of the characters in this book, young or old. That's the main problem. They are pretty much without exception unsympathetic and unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read! 7 July 2007
Format:Paperback
I totally disagree with everyone who has badly rated this book so far. I am about two chapters from the end and oh.my.word I can't put it down!!My family members feel abandoned. I love the characters and am totally in love with Magnus and Dilly. This is the first book of Fiona Walkers I have read and I will certainly be reading more.Bring on more fab books Fiona Walker!.

2.0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish 6 Nov 2006
By Hazza
Format:Hardcover
I am a huge fan of Fiona Walker but was really disappointed by this book. It reads like a teenage novel, very few of the characters are developed properly and the ending is blatently obvious. I wasn't expecting War and Peace from it but it was the least entertaining book I've read for a while. Bring back Tash etc as these new characters are just not working. I've given it 2 stars simply because it's Fiona Walker but I really would not recommend reading it

I found these a bit dated now. Not quite my cup of tea. They revolve round a village which has complicated names.
