Joanne Trollope writes so well in this oeuvre, I'd really like to see her attempt themes beyond the domestic stage.

This is a book which has won prizes and been very well reviewed, but I just couldn't see the point of the story. Sorry!

Another hash up of white pretentious men trying to be show off intellectuals. Get over it. Not my genre, folks.

3.0 out of 5 stars same old , same old, 20 Aug. 2014

More monkey business and macho men. Not so funny as other Plum stories. The themes are wearing a bit thin, a new direction is needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars overview of different approaches, 5 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very general look at different approaches to retirement. Easy to follow with plenty examples. I think I was looking for more specific information, especially on money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully written account of life on long haul cargo boats., 2 Jun. 2014
I enjoyed every word of this excellent book. Clare's description are detailed, lucid and visual, without ever being overblown or seeming contrived.
It helps if you are fascinated by the sea and it's traffic, but you could just enjoy this work as a great piece of writing. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining, perfectly judged, 21 Feb. 2014

I enjoyed this book. It uses the modern interest in Asberger's to tell the age old story of love. I liked it because it had a light touch and was funny all the way through.

Enlightening and entertaining- what do you have to do to survive in Nazi Paris? The book raises more questions than answers.
