I found the Kite Runner very depressing but well written. This is much more accessible -our whole, very fussy, reading group, loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars (in whom I do not believe) I love this series, 11 Aug 2014

Oh my God, (in whom I do not believe) I love this series. I really cannot wait to read the next one - and I seriously wish I lived in their world - even though it is fiction - and I have an ex husband who I really would like them to kill!

1.0 out of 5 stars A reading group choice - avoid!, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book divides opinion in reviews. I read it because it was chosen by one of our reading group members and it is a group that takes its choices very seriously - that is the only reason I finished it but even then I had to make myself read 50 pages per day - I couldn't do more.

None of the group enjoyed it - even the person who had chosen it!

It is good for discussion but I have read many other, much better, descriptions of life in India and any of those would be a better choice.

I can only believe that the people who really rate it live on a different mind planet to me - I have studied literature all my life and regard reading as my major interest but this - no!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good traditional murder but with an exotic setting, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first of the series I have read and I intend to buy the others. If you like a traditional murder story set in the recent past aboard a luxury liner (which we all know had a famous history afterwards) with lots of red herrings plus a good splash of English class attitudes and this versus the Americans of the time - buy this book - buy, be warned, they are addictive.

Really enjoyable!

4.0 out of 5 stars A sublime world, 10 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no problem with the quality of the CDs - it is just that I have fond memories of other actors taking the parts e.g. Richard Briers and Michael Hordern but if you want a really good collecton of the magical Wodehouse stories - this is a terrific set.

Really recommended.
