The Lowland
The Lowland

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

This review is from: The Lowland (Hardcover)
Disappointed with this much praised book particularly as I had loved ' The Namesake'. The style was distant and the inner lives thin. It was well written but failed to move me. I have already given the book away which is a sign that I wasn't madly enthusiastic and had no desire to read it again as I do with some other novels about which I am ambivalent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad but absorbing, 10 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Canada (Kindle Edition)
I love Richard Ford and this is one of his best. He always makes me examine my own point of view in relation to the experiences described and this sad, but ultimately not sad tale is no exception.

3.0 out of 5 stars A notch above Chic Lit, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This inspired quite a lot of controversy (good!) in our book group with quite varying views. I myself was quite bored for the first quarter or third of the book and may not have continued if it hadnt been a book group choice. It did gather momentum after that but I found the writing style condescending and the characterizations one-dimensional although there were a couple of pantomime dames to provide amusement.


Sacred Hearts
Sacred Hearts

4.0 out of 5 stars Women behind bars, 14 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Sacred Hearts (Paperback)
Who would have thought that a book about nuns in Renaissance Italy could be so engaging? I did not used to be at all interested in historical fiction , but having been introduced recently to CJ Sansom and listening to a reading of this book on 'Book at Bedtime' I went to listen to Sarah Dunant at a recent author's reading and launch of her subsequent tome on the Borgias. She was so interesting in the way she described the research process for The Borgias and interacted with the audience that evening in the lush surroundings of the Brighton Royal Pavilion Music Room that I decided to suggest this book for our book group. Everyone loved it, though with some slight reservations about the length (and possibly some repetition of phrases, though that was not universal), and felt they had learnt something from it about the position of noble women at that time as well as it being a Jolly Good Read.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic neglected author, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful novels by the US's most neglected author. Most stories centre around the quirky folks in the fictional town of Stay more Arkansas. Just don't read it whilst in public if you want to avoid people staring at you as you laugh out loud or chortle and guffaw.

It does the job. Good if you want protection for your Kindle but just a basic cover with no choice of colours.

I had to return these cartridges as I had ordered the wrong ones. But the delivery was extremely fast and the price is good. The new cartridges work well
