1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed, 7 April 2013
I was looking forward to a new book by this excellent writer, but this was an exercise in frustration. The heroine was the wimpiest and waffling of women, the kind that is dressed up in combat clothing and five inch heels, worrying about her hair. Stumbling and clutching at the sexy/strong armed to his teeth hero, at the same time as both of them are thinking more of having sex than surviving. The story line is depressing and, I'm afraid, will be followed by a series of books about fighting the invincible evil against impossible odds with a cliffhanger end in each of them. The escalating horrible ways of killing innocent bystanders are also just depressing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointment, 3 Feb. 2013
I'm really sorry to have to criticize this author who has previously written such enjoyable books. I really looked forward to reading this one. But, the protagonists in this book leave me extremely irritated, and I just wanted it to end. The Hero is such a mixture of conflicting emotions and characteristics that makes you wonder if he is a schizophrenic, or brave but stupid? The Heroine is presented as of an intelligent and scientific mind(i.e. she has thick eyeglasses?)but turns out to vacillating and of course beautiful.... I like a heroine to be intelligent, but why does she have to turn beautiful for a man to love her? Admittedly she "saves the day" by, suddenly, from nowhere, organizes an army of people to do her will. A book don't have to be logic to be good, but it has to be believable, and this one is not. Sorry!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice beginning but too thin story in the end, 8 Mar. 2010
I'm too old for this kind of story, I should have known. It's too embarrassing to read about young women who are so hopelessly unable or unwilling to develop. Dyslexia usually means that people use other means of development, in the modern world it's nothing to be ashamed of. Could have been a nice story but ended up beeing too thin.


A Precious Jewel
A Precious Jewel

Price: £5.84

5.0 out of 5 stars tender handling of sensitive subject, 27 Jan. 2010
This tale of "moral downfall" is also of the fact that people are good or bad wherever they are in time or place. The heroine faces a moral dilemma and makes the best(there would have been some trauma?) of a bad situation, that could have been much worse. Not rescued by the hero (but rewarded by his love) ironically makes her a woman of strong moral fiber who stands up for herself, supported by people of Christian spirit and good hearts. As usual Mary Balogh, has written a clever an interesting story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful drama, 13 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Tiger's Woman (Paperback)
I read this book many years ago the first time, and come back to it regularly. It has all the ingredients of a great romantic story, tragedy, danger, courage and love. It`s a keeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story ruined by wimpy heroine, 3 Sept. 2000
This story has everything going for it, and written in very good language, by why is everyone behaving in character except the heroine, who, while described to be strong and resourceful, breaks down and cries as soon she meets an obstacle. She has to be rescued EVERYTIME,if not by a person then by fate. Sorry, but this made me put the book in the wastebasket, not to be read again.
