I would like to know which book by Pilcher has this series been taken from. Not September, and I don't know of any book with the same title. Can someone help?

3.0 out of 5 stars don't know what to think, 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With My Body (Paperback)
I really don'y know what to think about this book. It's well written. I like Gemmell's style.It's not a soft-porn novel like fifty shades. But it's strange. the story nothing unusual. A young love story, the longing for a lost love... a parent-child difficult relation....but I feel it's more than that. However, it took me a long time to finish.The last part was moving. And the lost love part has been experienced by almost everyone...me, for sure. Same feelings. That was the best part.

5.0 out of 5 stars immensely enjoyable, 31 Jan 2012

I like pop up books and I bought this about bags together with the pop up about shoes. They are cleverly conceived, they give useful information not only to fashionists but also to curious about the history of fashion. Amusing

3.0 out of 5 stars Lynley & Havers : 17th issue, 31 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
PAY ATTENTION, COULD BE SPOILER
In my opinion, most of George's readers buy her books to hear about their favourite heroes : Tommy Linley, Barbara Havers, Deborah and St James. Fans have not yet got through Helen's death three books ago.( Actually, I Think Ms George's best book is "What came before he shot her", which isn't strictly one of the series). Like all the others, I waited eagerly for the new book, but I was disappointed. The main story is too long, too many stories and a bit morbid (sex, child sex abuse, homosexuality and transgender all in a book is too much). It's clear that Ms George wants to pass fron the simple murder mystery to The psycological novel. She has already done this in all her other books, but now there isn't even a real murder. I enjoyed Tommy , Barbara etc., their life going on, their personal tragedies, because it was what I was looking for first of all.But everything has become so sad! Everything goes wrong, no one is happy at the end of the book. Barbara is as usual the most interesting character. Deborah has become boring with her only obsession, Tommy ...Tommy? Tommy behaves in a way difficult to understand, even given his personal tragedy. Too many tragedies, Ms George. I wonder what will happen in issue n 18. The end of the world?

3.0 out of 5 stars James or austen?, 26 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well I rejoyced when I heard about this book. Two of my favourite authors together through the centuries? I know Dame Phyllis' skills, I have always loved Jane....it sounded like Jane, actually, it shows great love and respect for her by James, but...it is somewhat non completely convincing.The story is weak, Darcy has come back to his previous self: stiff and traditional (Colin Firth's image comes in mind immediately, alas,and it will, forever!), Lizzy is non existing...it was boring! The last pages are brilliant: most Austenian characters are there: non only from Pride & Prejudice but also from Persuasion and Emma. A tribute to Austen, but not the usual, enjoyable James's thrillers. Read it but don't expect neither jane Austen nor P.D.James.

2.0 out of 5 stars shopaholic back again but ....., 17 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't wait to read the new Becky book, but since the first pages I found it annoying. The pattern is always the same, and that's why we readeraholics like the series, but this time it was to farfetched. Becky is too stupid for most of the pages, to recover, as usual in the last ones. I found the book irritating. May be it's time Sophie Kinsella abandons her heroine and writes about something and someone else. She is good at being funny and entertaining, and her books are always a good laugh. The twenties girl, for example, was funny and moving at the same time. That's the right path to follow, Sophie!


The Charming Quirks Of Others (Isabel Dalhousie Novels)
The Charming Quirks Of Others (Isabel Dalhousie Novels)
by Alexander McCall Smith
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The new Isabel book, 17 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The new Iabel book is delightful as usual. I enjoy her thoughts, her commitments to ethics, her wanderings through Edinbourgh. I like Jamie,too, and their little stories. Nothing really ever happens in these novels, but thay make you think and worry about the same things that make Isabel think and worry. But... I found this book a bit sad, it's like the author wants to finish with dear Isabel and her stories. Maybe it's just a feeling I have.
