5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant, 14 Dec 2013
Funny, honest, well written, easy to read. What else does anyone want from a book? Looking forward to the sequel

1.0 out of 5 stars Love Jilly Hate Jump, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jump! (Paperback)
This is a tedious book about a horse. Having read the other less than positive reviews, and being a Jilly fan of some 25 years I really wanted to like it. It's shocking. The only positive is that on Kindle you can easily skip pages. There have always been animals in Jilly's books, and that was ok as they were incidental vs the main and very engaging central characters. But as far as I can gather the central character here is a horse, and the people are incidental. Insane.

2.0 out of 5 stars Things that make you go hmmmm, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting and in places thought provoking, with some unusual commentators for this subject matter including the delightful Micheal Scott (who knew history could be so easy on the eye). Despite its best intentions the authors don't tell me anything about Luxury that hasn't already been said (Craftmanship, Focus, History & Rarity - really ? NSS) Not sure what the purpose of the book is, or for whom it is written. I really wanted to like it but at best it left me shrugging my shoulders and at worst a bit frustrated with some fairly pretentious language (introducing chapters in Latin?). Borrow it from the Library.
