3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 19 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Guernica (Paperback)
Somehow there is something missing in this book. The style and language are very ponderous at times and I had to stop to reread long passages which was very annoying. The story is excellent and the background research impeccable but I felt it could have been better written. However, it does inspire you to read more about the terrible events and Basque history. I don't know why the author used the term "Pays Basque" which is French instead of "Pais Vasco" which is Spanish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unlikable characters, 16 July 2011
This review is from: Alibi (Paperback)
I was eager to read this book as I spent a few days in Venice and was utterly enchanted by the city. Unfortunately, the novel failed to hold my interest, despite the detail. I found all of the characters totally unlikable and really did not care what happened to them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the language and drawings, 26 April 2011
This would have been a more amusing book without the repetitive use of four letter words and the tiresome drawings which added nothing to the overall content. Also, full of spelling errors. What is a "noble prize"? It should of course have been Nobel.

1.0 out of 5 stars totally one dimensional characters, 14 April 2011
This review is from: The Reading Room (Paperback)
I loathed this book. It is simplistic hogwash, the characters are one dimensional and stereotypical. I cannot imagine what people find to rave about. I will certainly avoid her books like the plague.
