Well I read a review that compared this with gillian flynn and was very excited. I hate being mean but it doesn't. It lack depth and layers. The story unfolds without much effort or twists and turns. A little predictable but a good read anyway.

This review is from: Silence (Kindle Edition)
If I hear "let's go for ice cream" , " I love you, Oakley" or "I pressed my head into his chest" or " I want him but I'm not good enough" again I thought I would scream. In fact I did tell my kindle to shut up a couple of times reading this. Absolute rubbish. No story at all with a bit of drama ( a tiny bit if a hint if a story) at the end. Terrible at the very end, unrealistic jibber.

Necessary lies was well worth the read. Great characters, very believable. Also not too stereotypical and typeset.
Very sad at times but a great insight into life at that time. Fab

Good read. I found it very comforting being from Scotland. The descriptions of scottish home lives and characters are accurate. Warming story. Pleasant and familliar

This review is from: Gone Girl (Kindle Edition)
Gone girl by Gillian Flynn was an enjoyable book with great characters. Screaming out to be made in to a film. A bit too much north American slang for my liking but still really good. Loved the ending, very unusual after reading so many textbook crime stories. Will definitely read more by this author.

The book was absolutely amazing and filled my dreams. It blew my mind. I liked Jack because he was clever and learnt quickly. We liked the Roman part of the story especially. Brilliant


The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry
The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my goodness ...., 14 April 2013

The unlikely pilgrimage of Harold fry was truly a moving beautiful book. The story of Harold fry walking unexpectedly to an old friend who is dying hundreds of miles away. In his quest to save her life he confronts his past and his grief.
This book really made me laugh and cry out loud, made me think about my life and relationships. How our behaviours impact our lives long-term. About regrets and how I personally can look back on my life without regrets. This was the best book I have read in a very long time. I will miss not having Harold fry In my life and experiencing his journey with him. Highly recommended. Xxx


My Splendid Concubine
My Splendid Concubine

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmmmm....not brilliant. Stuck with it til the end but very repetitive and not really much of a story. The turmoil between his Christian upbringing/morals and his ridiculous libido! Parts of it were well written and the end tragic but what about his career. It promised a good tale of Harts work and the progression to wealth and power but this was only hinted and not delivered. Overall not for me.


Thursdays in the Park
Thursdays in the Park
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 19 Feb. 2013

Thursdays in the park was fantastic. I cared about the characters and prayed for a happy ending. Jeanie is a brilliantly warm and caring character. Her struggle to be heard and appreciated is so frustrating and the desire to do the right thing by her family. I identified with the characters seeing my own family in them.
Great find, I'm off to buy some more Hilary Boyd!
