3.0 out of 5 stars Why abridged? 18 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree with a previous reviewer. I purchased a book for 4.99 that stated it was 560 pages long. Please ensure that purchasers are made aware of this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The day of the storm 15 Jun 2013
By Topsy
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book, but was disappointed because the book review said that it was 560 pages long. But it was actually 216 pages long. It did not state anywhere that it was abridged.

1.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed 18 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was enjoying the story despite some unbelievable coincidences until towards the end when I really felt the story collapsed. It sort of raced to a conclusion almost as though the author was bored with the story. It
then became faintly ridiculous. I'm very disappointed because I've always enjoyed this author's novels.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont buy this book 4 Jan 2014
By joanann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How can you sell a book which is supposed to be 560 pages long and only give readers 240 pages, why was this not made clear before purchase, what a waste of money.

After reading Rosamunde Pilcher's The Shell Seekers was expecting great things. This was okay but nothing like the standard I was expecting.

I really enjoyed this story, a page turner I like the story of the family plus the mystery. I really wanted to know the ending and did not get bored by the middle of the book.
