This review is from: Of Human Bondage (Kindle Edition)
Belatedly read this account of Philip's quest to work out how to live a life. The insights, detail and precision are all part of what kept me reading even if the long affair with Mildred took up a lot of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically creepy and chilling story, couldn't put it down ..., 17 April 2015
This review is from: The Ice Twins (Hardcover)
Fantastically creepy and chilling story, couldn't put it down once I'd read the first few chapters. The punctuation and style were bizarre at times but the tension and story-telling were impeccable. The ending was neat but left me uneasy for reasons I can't say as I don't want to give any plot twists away. Bravo Ms Tremayne!

Essentially the message is a variant on make a plan and stick to it but the strategy is clear and the writer has an engaging style.

This review is from: Renaissance
Wonderful writing and like others I used it as preparation for a trip to Florence. Only reason for not 5* is that it is so rich and good, it's taken me an age to read it!


Hannah Coulter: A Novel
Hannah Coulter: A Novel
by Berry
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, considered novel, 1 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Somehow, everything I am reading at the moment relates to our relationship to place. This novel in the voice of an elderly woman, twice married, mother of three, looking back over a long life in a small Kentucky community, has a small frame of reference yet encompasses the big questions about how to live a life - and to let go of attachments - to parents, children, lost loved-ones, hopes, dreams and especially, the past. The protagonist sometimes seems like a ventriloquist for Wendell Berry in her wise observations but stays on the right side of sentimentality. The war, although off-stage - is another theme that underlies the novel - what actually happened and how it reverberates through the lives of those at a distance.
