The Next Step in the Dance
The Next Step in the Dance
by Tim Gautreaux
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty Louisiana Gumbo, 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An unexpected treat of a novel, full of vivid local flavour with its setting on a bayou in deepest Louisiana. It follows a few difficult years in the lives of a young married couple, portraying both central characters as interesting and complex people deeply rooted in the supportive network of relatives and friends. The author's obvious in-depth knowledge of the area as well as engineering and fishing provides enjoyably nerdy descriptions and the plot amiably meanders along towards a tense and emotional ending. I've not read a book as good as this for a while. I only came across this author through his short stories, which are also excellent. I'm now hot-footing it to the bookshop to get his other two published novels...

4.0 out of 5 stars Blokes allowed, 16 Aug 2012

This review is from: Meeting Lydia (Paperback)
Blokes may well be put off reading this first book by Linda, because of its 'girlie' cover, but there is plenty of observation of idiosyncrocies and the mechanisms of male/female relationships in there to make reading past the front cover worthwhile. In fact, it is an intelligently written account of the psychology of relationships and an interesting reflection on how email, text messages and other contemporary social networking media have altered the way we relate to each other, in particular to the opposite sex. As it is a debut novel, it would be churlish to criticise possible flaws in the narrative structure, or - given the central importance of her prep school memories to the main character's motivation for her journey of discovery - the timidity of the description of the childhood bullying. The story is certainly intriguing enough to make you want to read to the end and Marianne's exploration of her 'self' and those around her is multi-faceted and relevant enough to hold any reader's interest, even a bloke's. On the whole a very enjoyable and rewarding read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Only one outstanding track, 6 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coming Up for Air (Audio CD)
Bought this because I was intrigued by the title track played by Sir Terry on the breakfast show. Sorry to say that it is by far the most superior track on the whole record, which is good, but average blues rock. All the time you have this frustrating feeling that this band could be absolutely brilliant. Slightly underwhelming, overall!

This is quite a discovery: Good rhyming poems in simple language in a beautifully illustrated book. Great buy, strongly recommended!
