5.0 out of 5 stars a great read, 8 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
I might not have picked up such a large book of my own volition but it was our reading group book. An excellent read. Beautifully written, the many characters are so well defined it is like watching a film . I found the first part of the book extremely hard to read, it was so painfully I almost put the book down, I am glad I continued to the end. I would most certainly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars a love story, 15 July 2014

A. Very moving love story. The writing captures the essence of Burma , the deep spiritual back ground to people's lives. I found the book incredibly visual, I could sense what Burma looks and smells like and the gracefulness and dignity of the people.

Once you pick up this book you will read it straight through until the end. Written with such gentleness, such silence , I am glad to have read such a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars too flowery, 26 Oct 2013

An interesting story but I found the writing too flowery. The skill in descriptive writing did not match up to Hassan's deep in born love of food and it's preparation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really enlightening story, 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been born in Harare in the early 1950s but raised in the UK I found this book fascinating . Christina Lamb tells the story of all sides in the years where Mugabe has wasted what could be a country rich not only in agriculture but in scenic beauty as well. I enjoyed it so much I have gone on to read other books about these times in Zimbabwe.

This review is from: Dark Places (Kindle Edition)
I found the characters very easy to visualise . You get involved in the story very quickly without seeing where it will end. Libby felt no need to start diving into her past until the charitable donations awarded to her ran out or maybe that was just coincidence. Even though she disliked herself I liked her . Despite everything which had gone against her , even when her family were alive , she was solid and a survivor. I look forward trying another of Gillian Flynn's books I hope it will be as good as this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 18 Dec 2012

I would not recommend this product. To stop the shredder from shredding I had to unplug it from the socket. It is not expensive but not a saving.
