My Name Is Resolute
My Name Is Resolute
by E., Nancy Turner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 15.16

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment, 6 May 2014

This review is from: My Name Is Resolute (Hardcover)
I very much enjoyed her previous work (These Is My Words) but not this one . The main character didn't capture my interest, the story line was very choppy, and I just didn't believe it. It rather seemed that every detail of the extensive research done by the author had to be fitted in and therefore it became tedious. I quit after only a few chapters.

I could hardly put it down. Very cleverly written. You really believe in the characters. It may well become one of those books you reread every so often.

This review is from: Sideways [DVD] (DVD)
I found the male characters immature and tedious. Their acting was spot on. It was more like a teenage silliness than an adult, supposedly professional, storyline. The female characters and actresses were very good, so why would they be attracted to such superficial and whining men. I must be missing something because I ordered it on the basis of the reviews and awards. It goes straight to the charity shop.

While faithful to the content and style of Jane Austen, I was disappointed. There was so much repetition it was like it was written for someone who had never read Pride and Prejudice in the first place. It was good, but not one I would keep for rereading.

This is a fun, funny book. It is great at bedtime when you just need a little delicious relaxing reading. The recipes are enticing too.
