1.0 out of 5 stars Hated it, 14 May 2015
This review is from: The Bookshop (Paperback)
Had to read this as a book group choice otherwise I wouldn't have got beyond the first chapter. Such a miserable little book. Don't waste your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what was promised, 26 Mar. 2015
This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
I started this book anticipating a good read - hadn't all those reviews promised me that? After struggling to maintain interest I gave up at the half way stage as by then I didn't care what happened to the main character or the painting. What amazes me is that so many people seems to enjoy reading about drug and alcohol fuelled vomit sessions. Not me though.

1.0 out of 5 stars By the time I had skipped the boring stuff about elephants there wasn't much of a story ..., 7 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Leaving Time (Kindle Edition)
By the time I had skipped the boring stuff about elephants there wasn't much of a story left and what remained was clearly lifted from The Hours.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed, 1 May 2014
This review is from: Falling (Hardcover)
Could have been a good read but the writing far too disjointed to make it so. Nearly gave up halfway but ploughed on to the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed editing, 22 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Cornish House (Paperback)
I tried to count how many "Maddie swallowed" and "Maddie blinked" there were in this story but there were so many I gave up. Why didn't it get some serious editing before publication. It could have been a half decent reward then

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave up half way through. Very poorly written and characters not at all credible. Not up to the standard of her first book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 20 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Rehearsal (Kindle Edition)
Well I struggled on even though I knew after the first few pages it would be hard going. All in all I found it extremely boring I'm afraid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Miserable, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like other readers I was enticed into buying it by all the favourable reviews. I had to give up on it after reaching the half way point, it's just just too depressing. I would have soldiered on if I thought the man would ever take a stand and gain control of his life but I knew that was just not going to happen. A thoroughly pointless book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of those books that once I started I couldn't put down. Can't wait for her next book to come out.

Moleskine Pocket Size Hard Horizontal 18 Months 2014 Weekly Diary - Red (Moleskine Diaries)
by Moleskine
Edition: Calendar

5.0 out of 5 stars So useful, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love these diaries as you can keep going who one year ends and another starts instead of having two diaries as the year end approaches.
