Storming the Stage
Storming the Stage
by Davina Elliott
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Storming the Page!, 3 April 2013
This review is from: Storming the Stage (Paperback)
Davina's insider knowledge and enthusiasm for "The Business" and her sparky imagination has resulted in the creation of wonderful series of novels. She has conjured an iconic character in Judith Gold; we enjoy her behaving the way we know we'd never get away with, saying the things we'd never dare and half-regret that they don't quite make them like that any more...A perfect read for theatre aficionados or the thespo-curious, Davina Elliott storms the page!

5.0 out of 5 stars That treasure: a great read that is actually a true story..., 29 Jun. 2012
I was utterly transported by this book. It's so compelling, one's more than likely to finish it in one sitting. It has the effortless edibility of a satisfying holiday romance, the adventure of an Indiana Jones film - with a female heroine - but the added intellectual kudos of being a true story with the accuracy and detail of a topographical or metaphysical treatise.

Hunt has a very immediate and accessible writing style that dances through the mind, memorably sketching the people she encounters, vividly painting whole landscapes in the mind's eye and conjuring emotions and atmospheres she experienced with such immediacy, one almost experiences them for oneself.

Apart from being entertainingly written, it's a privilege to read about such things when they are shared so disarmingly frankly and clearly. Whilst Hunt's enjoyment of the journey is palpable, she also includes the nagging doubts, impatience and cynicism. The lasting impression, however, is of the energy here. Energy that sparks off the page and promises to ignite beyond. Congratulations, Anna Hunt. I can't wait to read "The Further Adventures of the Shaman in Stilettos"!
