Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire
Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire
Price: £7.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had expected!, 4 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought that this book would be the basis for the TV programme Indian Summer recently shown. In case anyone else thinks like me ....IT IS NOT! This is a history crammer which reminded me of being back at school. Not at all an enjoyable book for me and really a complete waste of money. For readers you want to be involved in the minutiae (literally) of how Britain's rule came to an end, I'm sure it's fine; just not my kind of book.

This had the potential to be a great book. Indeed it was for probably half to threequartes. There it should have been ended with the reader looking for more. Instead the author fell into the trap of continuing with a good thing...or so he thought! Me as the reader thought "when is this book (never mind story) ever going to end because by that stage it had become oh so transparent that the writer wanted to wrap things up so neatly so that there would be a tidy and heartwarming end. Instead the book which had promised so much was spoiled...in my opinion. Don't let that put you off buying the book; for the early part and for description of early battle scenes it was excellent if a bit twee in some of the language used between Vivian and her Daddy, but again that's because I'm a Scot and we don't talk that way up here...maybe in The Home Counties? It is a long read!

I have fine hair and unless something gets plastered on it it's all over the place. Having read about this stuff I thought I would try it. I only wash my hair once per week...maybe twice on occasions and always at night before I go to bed. This is what works for me. Wash hair with Matrix "so silver" and damp dry hair, put a touch of Argan oil of morroco shampoo onto finger tips and rub into hair then style it. The following day and most days I dampen my hair and rub my finger tips over Tigi Bed Head and smooth into hair (backwards)...I might do this twice. You don't want to do it too much because it can set like cement! The answer for an older guy like me is...Less is More...and it's good and I recommend it! And ...your hair does not look plastered!

Read it after the film came out which I did not see. I don't know what I expected. Although interesting I could not give more than 3 stars.

Hadn't read a Grisham book before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Leagle eagle stuff.

Unfortunately I read Book 2 before I even knew about Book 1. No matter. I was familiar with the characters and enjoyed the book. However, even after just 2 of Grisham's books I detect the same formula at work and I will not be rushing to read a third...at least for the time being, 'cos even after 2 it gets a bit boring!?

This was a wonderful book of family life. Just remember that all families are different and nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors! Well written and easily understandable it held my attention from beginning to end. I had not come across that style of writing before where a period of 60 years or so were fascinately interwoven from one paragraph to the next causing you to wonder for a while where all of this was going. The characters and the contexts were completely believable. An altogether completely different whodunnit! I thoroughly recommend this book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. What made it even more interesting was that Alan Johnson was a lecturer on a trade union course I once was on at St Andrews University. I have followed his career and agree with the sentiment that he is the best prime minister that Labour never had. As I write this...it would be (to my mind) radically different in the run up to the forthcoming election if this man was at the head instead of Milliband!

Delivered promptly at a good price...but I wonder how healthy these things really are. I just give my shelties about an inch each a day.
