5.0 out of 5 stars A Sensitive portrayal of a child learning to cope., 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Night Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
Lovely, delightful, gentle and beguiling. This novel captures the essence of a child whose family has fallen apart and of those around her who are trying - without interfering - to 'pick up the pieces'.

1.0 out of 5 stars But perhaps that was the point - the lack of credibility is supposed to be funny! Well for me it failed, 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read a review which assured me that this book would keep me amused and entertained. I failed to do either. The characters are pretentious and even ridiculous. Whilst allowing for the vintage of the setting I found it hard to believe that anyone of enough intelligence to work for a newspaper could have zero work ethic. But perhaps that was the point - the lack of credibility is supposed to be funny! Well for me it failed. There are so many fantastic novels to read I could not recommend this one to anyone.


Horrid Henry Meets the Queen
Horrid Henry Meets the Queen
by Francesca Simon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Henry never fails to please, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seven year old grand daughter thinks Henry is a great role model and keeps retelling all his naughty adventures to anyone will listen. It has certainly encouraged her to be an independent reader.

Four year old grandson was entranced. He will 'read' this book over and over and loves finding out what is hidden beneath the flaps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great mixture of fiction and 'fact'., 20 April 2014

So well described that I really felt as if I was there! - down to needing an extra jumper when reading about the winter conditions, even when I was snuggled up in bed!

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stories and just a bit 'different'!, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
seven year old Granddaughter loved these stories which was able to read herself. She said that 'they made me think' - so I read one too and yes, she is right, they are just a bit different to the usual 'beginning, middle, end', plot, and just right for an imaginative boy or girl.


After You'd Gone
After You'd Gone
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept my interest to the last word., 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: After You'd Gone (Kindle Edition)
Loved it! Not sentimental or romantic, just beautifully described. At first I thought that the chronology would make the story difficult to follow, but not a bit, Maggie O'Farrell is a master of weaving a plot to keep you turning every page and guessing to the end.


The Last Letter from Your Lover
The Last Letter from Your Lover
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as soppy as expected!, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely love story, but lots of intrigue too. Kept me interested to the very end. The emphasis is very much on how relationships and social norms/acceptance has changed in forty or so years. Well worth reading.
