5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 10 July 2014

This review is from: Fractured (Kindle Edition)
Very good and thought provoking. I wondered how the writer was going to end it as it could so easily have tailed off into something unfinished and unsatisfactory for the reader, but it was perfect. Can't believe this is her first book and look forward to reading more by her.

I finished this last night - a lovely ending to a really thoughtful and tender story. All the characters were believable, and I was with them all the way. Some tear jerking moments, a superb read.

I LOVED this book. Lily and all the other characters were so real I felt I was living with them and going through everything they went through. Liz Trenow tells a superb story wonderfully well. A perfect ending which had me in tears. I look forward to her next.

This is a beautiful, poignant story, cleverly and sensitively told. You have to keep reading to find out what happens, and even when you think it's nearly over, something else crops up which tilts the balance. I lay in bed this morning finishing it and was wiping away tears at the end. Lovely.

This review is from: The Kitchen Diaries II (Hardcover)
Nothing much to say, really. Just perfection, absolute perfection. The size of the book,the writing, the recipes, the photographs - so low key and yet so right - there's nothing to fault in this book. Bless you, Nigel Slater, a hundred times over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very special book, 8 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every now and again you read a book which makes you think, and you remember it long after you have finished it. This is one of those books. This is also one of those books which you wish you had bought as a book and not as a download, as you want to share it with others.
I recommended it to a friend who is travelling in Vietnam/Cambodia and she emailed today to say she had just finished it and said "what a sad,joyous, lovely love story. Thank you for recommending it".
That's about it, really.


Me Before You
Me Before You
by Jojo Moyes
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A difficult subject, a brilliantly written book, 26 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Me Before You (Paperback)
All I can say is : read it; it will make you think, laugh and cry, possibly all at the same time. I am glad I finished it in the privacy of my own home and no one could see me crying my eyes out. Well done, Ms Moyes, this was thoroughly believable and agonisingly real. Will and Lou will remain with me for some time.

This was a lovely book. A sweet, sad, uplifting story which made me want to read more by the author. I look forward to her next book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 10 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snowdrops (Paperback)
I was disappointed in this book. Most of the reviews were enthusiastic enough for me to buy it, but it never really got my attention. I wasn't interested enough in the characters to care how it ended, though it was easy to see that there wasn't going to be a fairy tale ending. I've read better books on Russia.
