5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and entertaining, 14 Aug 2014

This is a witty and entertaining take on 'Pride and Prejudice' with some delightful observations of 21st century social mores. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating account, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written, vivid and absorbing account of slavery. Solomon Northup comes across as an outstanding individual, showing skill and resilience in terrible circumstances.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The French House (Kindle Edition)
Strong characters, vivid depiction of place and convincing portrayal of a developing relationship all make this a thoroughly good read. The only weak characters are Distira and Carole whose motivation is rather unconvincing.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sections of the book in which Ruby Wax reflects on and recounts her personal experience are both moving and informative and certainly helped me to understand better what it is like to suffer from depression. However, I found the other sections rather annoying in their tone and at times I felt my mind lurching into the world of the untamed mind rather than the tamed. There are other books out there which explain the practice of mindfulness much more clearly, for example Mark Williams 'Finding Peace in a Frantic World'.
