1.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing read!, 29 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
I was very disappointed in this book. It is beautifully and descriptively written BUT I just couldn't identify with the characters and it was far too long. It took me a long while to read because I just didn't want to go back to it but I still had to finish it!!!!
The ending was a complete anti-climax. I know this book has won awards and been in the bestsellers but think hard before you embark on it. According to statistics only 44% of readers finish this book!

This review is from: LeapFrog Lettersaurus (Toy)
This is a great toy. It kept my grandson happy for a long while when mummy went to have a shower and I was left with him to care for. The alphabet is not dealt with phonically - which is a shame but although I would have preferred that he loves the sounds and songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond belief!, 29 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a quite well written expose of Karen Matthews. It is very hard to believe that anyone would do the things detailed in this book but to treat your own child like this is beyond anything I can imagine. What a sad start in life for little Shannon Matthews? I do hope that time will heal her wounds and that her life will be happier in the future. It is hard to believe that her tormentors are already free and living in the community. The world that is painted in this book is outside my experience and it was eye opening and very emotional.

I really admire Monty Roberts but have never been sure about the experiment that he details in this book. It was bought for a young friend of mine who I hope will read and evaluate the value of the Monty Roberts experiences with 'Shy Boy'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like dogs - read this book!!, 29 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as birthday gift for my husband. We have a rescue dog with quite a history and this book has helped considerably. Although was have had five dogs previously the problems that we have met with Bridget are quite different and this books helps you understand the way dogs are and perhaps to evaluate the information you are fed by other canine experts. My husband was continually quoting from the book as he was reading it.
