2.0 out of 5 stars Birmingham Girls, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birmingham Girls (Kindle Edition)
I struggled to read the book, I managed to read through to the end, but felt it was very run of the mill. I think that most people could have sat down and written a similar story about themselves. It just didn't have any spark. no real story line and not particularly interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1930s/40s Saga, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was what I call an easy read. About the hardships of the people just before the 2nd world war. If you like the Catherine Cookson type books then this is for you. Hard to believe in this day and age the dreadful hardships that people had to endure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good saga, 25 Mar 2014

A really good read, if you are a fan of sagas. A good strong story which is a bit different from the usual. It will certainly appeal to those who love a good story, but not too soppy!

This review is from: Yellow Star (Kindle Edition)
The story, which is true is heart wrenching, but I have to say I couldn't take to the lay out of the text. I fail to see the reason for it, it may be because it was on the Kindle, but for me I found it very off putting.

This is just so gorgeous. Its a real chill out CD, every single track is great. Lower the lighting, glass of wine, feet up and relax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wizardry at its weirdest, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved the film Wizard of Oz, but have never read the book. It was so good to read it at long last, and I had no idea there were 13 more books. It certainly didn't disappoint, the other stories are just as weird and wonderful. I would think this would be for the older child because the stories are quite involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tales with a bite, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book of Grimms fairy tales is not necessarily for children. Some of the stories are quite frightening, and although they all have a moral to them, some of them are quite cruel. It is a wonderful collection, although it is quite suprising that some of the stories have different titles to those that we know and love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dickens at his best, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story of Pip and his "great expectation" wonderful Victorian text, which you really have to concentrate on. But the story is so great and you can almost see and smell the marshes where he lives during his early years. A full story, with so much going on. Just fantastic

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected., 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was quite a strange book, it seemed unbelievable and even more so as the story went on. At the end the legal side of things that had gone on were just swept under the carpet. All a bit silly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear old Ratty, Mole and Toad, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautifully written story which children today would still enjoy. Delightful storyline, moments of comedy, drama, sadness and true friendshiip. An absolute must for adults and children alike, I am currently reading it to my granddaughters age 8 and 5 and they are completely hooked. They laughed out loud at Toad , muttering "poop poop" .
