Elizabeth is Missing
Elizabeth is Missing
Price: £3.66

4.0 out of 5 stars An insider's view of dementia, 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating weave of past and present. As Maud sinks more into dementia she remembers, and relives what happened when her sister Sukey disappeared 70 years ago. Although the 'Elizabeth' of the title may be missing, if only she can remember what happened yesterday, the story revolves around both the short term loss of memory and the long term recall of her childhood. This is a very gripping read with an unexpected twist at the end.

Shakespeare: The World as a Stage
Price: £4.74

4.0 out of 5 stars Bill Bruson explores the life of Shakespeare, 7 Dec. 2014

This is a very good short book about the Bard and his times, it covers much of the myth and fantasy about Shakespeare and debunks the theories that have been suggested by some scholars. It is very well researched and full of interest.


Echoes From The Dead: Oland Quartet series 1
Echoes From The Dead: Oland Quartet series 1
Price: £3.95

3.0 out of 5 stars A small boy strays from his grandparents house and is lost, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story progresses quite slowly moving between the time that the child is lost up on the Alvar and current time. Twenty years have gone by since Jens disappeared And the absence of a body has left so many people unable to move on and mourn. His mother has moved away and her relationship with his father has broken down, she is off work and drinking too much and estranged from her father Gerlof on Oland Island. When Gerlof receives a sandal in the post that seems to belong to Jens he starts to investigate again the events around the disappearance and invites his daughter over to the island.
Parts of this book are very good and paint a picture of life on Oland with beautiful descriptions of the scenery and history. Overall I found it to be a bit overlong but the plot was good and at times it was a gripping read as the story unfurls.


The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
Price: £3.66

4.0 out of 5 stars This story is compelling to read., 20 Oct. 2014

Imagine living over and over again and always at the same period in history, with the same parents and situations. Then imagine having the knowledge of the previous lives, all the experiences and learning. Harry is such a person, each life teaching him more about himself and the organisation of others such as himself. After several lives he meets Vincent and there is an instant friendship. The story of what happens between these two men, some of it savage and extraordinary, makes this a gripping read.

4.0 out of 5 stars a truly original look at humankind, 18 Oct. 2014

This review is from: The Humans (Kindle Edition)
I read this book after a recommendation, even an insistence, from a family member. I was not disappointed, it is a very clever work of science fiction with a tender plot. There is an amount of maths theory which I couldn't understand but could certainly appreciate, and for those more numerate than me would add to the mystery of all things. It is an other-worldly look at our frail race.
