The Lucky Ones
The Lucky Ones
Price: £1.93

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 17 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lucky Ones (Kindle Edition)
I couldn't put this down!. I've read a lot of books about the war but this one is a real page turner. Edith and her family had to leave their home to escape the Germans. They eventually end up in Russia where life becomes even harder and where poor Edith has to take on the role of an adult and deal with every hardship on her own, as by now her mother is in hospital and her father appears unable to cope. It's a real tear jerker in many parts. Buy this book and enjoy a damn good read


Send Me No Flowers
Send Me No Flowers
by Jenny Tomlin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, 16 Nov 2014
This review is from: Send Me No Flowers (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed the books on the authors childhood so I thought I would give this book a try due to the good reviews. The first quarter of the book kept me interested. There is a lot of sexual depravity that some may not like but I didn't find it particularly horrendous. However the story line became too repetitive for me so I gave up halfway through and went to the end to find out what happened to the characters.

This review is from: Wounded Souls (Kindle Edition)
What can I say?. I won't go into the storyline because there are plenty of other reviews. However, I am a prolific reader and this book is an absolute roller coaster. Those poor boys, and the way they were treated by the evil witch Mae after their much loved mother died is horrific. The one thing that shines out of this book is the love that the three brothers have for each other and stood by each other through thick and thin and there was plenty of "thin". Robert, thank you for sharing the lives of you and your lovely brothers. One thing I'm sure of is your mother would be so proud of her sons. I have just finished bawling again after watching the video on youtube x

I enjoyed this book. Life in the Warsaw ghetto as seen through the eyes of young Abigail aged 10. Other reviewers have said they didn't like the ending to the book, whereas I did, although it's not what I was expecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book, 5 Jun 2014
Firstly, I read hundreds of books but I rarely write reviews because I'm not good at them. However, I really wanted to write something on this one, I enjoyed it so much. I loved the way it was written, as though you were sat in Bens front room while he tells you the story of his life, and what a life it has been. Ripped away from his family at nine and a half years old to survive in Hitlers concentration camps. Starved, beaten and witness to horrors we can only imagine he was determined he was going to make it through and unbelievably he did and I would recommend you to download this book and read his story. One thing that shines through is his deep abiding love for his mother and his siblings. One thing I do know is his mother would be darn proud of her little boy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I seen Nadine on the Mathew Wright show and she was nervous about the launch party for this book. She worried no one would turn up. Well I hope Nadine enjoyed the party because I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was so engrossed in it, I read it in two days (the ironing could wait!). Loads of social history, a great story line and a few heroes/heroines thrown in for good measure. It's a great bargain on here at the moment so don't lose out. Buy it, put your feet up with a cuppa and enjoy! I hope there will be a follow up later on

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stolen Voices (Kindle Edition)
I've read a few books of this genre and this has to be one of the worst. This brother and sister both suffered so much and still they continued to look out for and care for each other. I won't comment on the mother because they have both forgiven her neglect of them. How the beast in this book got away with what he did for so long is unbelievable. I wish Terrie and Paul all the happiness that life can throw at them. They both deserved so much better x
