The Swarm

This review is from: The Swarm (Paperback)
Interesting subject - but the whole story could have been told in half the pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promises more than it delivers..., 22 Aug. 2014

This review is from: The Vacationers (Kindle Edition)
At the beginning I was really excited about finding out more about the characters. The end is a little bit too Hollywood for me - all tangles are smoothed out and everybody lives happily ever after. There were also a few factual errors in the book, which niggled me. Were they down to sloppy research or simply not caring enought? Would I read it again? No.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting - but not riveting, 29 April 2013

This review is from: Autumn Killing (Paperback)
Have read all available novels so far...The unravelling of Malin Fors is probably the most interesting aspect of this series, but the story lines are becoming a bit formulaic. I would call it an easy read for the beach or a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Visually beautiful book and wonderful receipes. Would recommend this to the serious chocoholic and a baker with a bit of experience. Maybe a bit to sophisticated for the beginner.

Am on my second tube now. It smells lovely and hydrates really well. I am a compulsive hand cream user and would rank this one amongst the best ones I have used. Great value for the price.

And a really nice read. Interesting insights into the philosophy of the author. Haven't tried the receipies yet, but am building up to the Green Tea Genoa. Am considering Rose Carrarini's other book!

Light, moisturinsing, smells wonderful....I use it as an overnight treatment (ie leave it on the skin during the night). In the morning my skin was soft, rosy and looked refreshed.

Would still recommend the product (my colleague has one) - not sure I can say the same about the vendor.Real disappointment, was mean to be a birthday present.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an enjoyable read!, 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Diet books are quite often intimidating - too much detail, too purist, too complicated to follow. This book is very different - the chatty style is engaging, the tips are simple and easy to follow. I really enjoyed reading The Feast and Fast Diet and can only recommend it to everybody who wants to make some realistic lifestyle adjustments. Hopefully the authors will take their easy going approach to other topics soon.
