Silver Bay
Silver Bay
by Jojo Moyes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Silver Bay from JoJo Moyes, 15 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silver Bay (Paperback)
Another good book from JoJo Moyles, it held my attention from the beginning, and it is very well written. I learnt a great deal about the Dolphins and Whales in Silver Bay, the beautiful beaches and the tranquil life the family live until a stranger arrives out of the blue to shatter their lives It is a romantic book but it takes a while to get there! I am working my way through JoJo's books but so far nothing surpasses the brilliant 'Me before You'..

This book by Jojo Moyles was very good, it took me a while to actually get into the book but it improved as the story progressed. It was interesting from an 'historic point of view' as I did not know that women from across the world in 1946 were shipped to England to to join the men they married in wartime. The brides in the story came from Australia and the story of their journey across the ocean on an aircraft carrier, the Victoria, turns into a remarkable story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hewlett-Packard (HP) Combo pack 301 - overpriced but necessary, 15 Sep 2014

This product is very good and of course is a necessary purchase. However, I believe these cartridges are over-priced and I try to buy them when they are on offer only. I never buy at the original price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Foreign Fruit, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Foreign Fruit (Paperback)
I loved Jojo Moyes 'Me before You' which was the first book of hers that I read but was disappointed with Foreign Fruit. It took me a long time to get into the book and I found it very confusing at times, as it looked back at the past, but that was probably because I found it hard going after reading the magnificent 'Me before You' which to me was one of the best books I have ever read and was gripping from the beginning. Foreign Fruit was a sad tale of 'lost love' for Lotti and Guy, when they were very young, and the coming together again some fifty years later when they realised what a mess they had made of their lives, which I found very sad. All the way through the book I was waiting for it to hold my attention but, unfortunately, it did not.

This review is from: The Unseen (Paperback)
A very good absorbing drama, and an unusual story of intrigue, murder, love and mystery. I was enthralled by a tale of 'fairies' and of Cat's part in the drama and It held my attention to the finish. An extremely well written, researched and documented novel, a real page-turner.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Misbegotten - Katherine Webb, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Misbegotten (Paperback)
In the past, I have very much enjoyed Katherine Webb's books, but this book was disappointing. I almost gave up on it but did continue to the end. I found it to be a very dark and miserable story, so very different to the brilliant ' The Legacy' novel. The Misbegotten was very well written but the story seemed relentless in its mystery, deceit and squalor and I found it difficult to relate to any of the characters. However, it will not put me off of reading Katherine's books as she is a brilliant writer.

This review is from: The Legacy (Paperback)
This is the first time I have read a Katherine Webb book and I really enjoyed the story which covered both the early1900's and current period. It was a very interesting story, well written and I found it difficult to put the book down. I can recommend this book and have since purchased another one of her stories and I am delighted that I have found a new author to add to my list of favourite ones.
