4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fallout (Kindle Edition)
It is beautifully written but where this often suggests it's difficult to read - it is not.

The story, set principally in a theatrical context, is enthralling and the characters diverse, interesting, intriguing. I am not sure why I've held back the fifth star but it could be because there is a slight emptiness at the heart of some of the characters but then again could this be the brittleness of the 'luvvies'? Don't let it put you off : it's a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sisterland (Hardcover)
An original idea, very well executed which is what I would expect from Curtis Sittenfeld. Her characters are odd but attractive and the plotline catches and holds the imagination. Although I found this and American Wife less compelling that her first two novels. she is still very much worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good desk for a little girl, 6 July 2013

Neat & bright with a useful space for storing pens and papers. My grand-daughter really likes it. The stool is a bit hard - needs a cushion really but easy enough to put one on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 12 Mar 2013

Faultless : it has changed my life! It fulfils all the promises.

This is light, powerful, flexible. It could do with a few tools but that is like criticising a great friend who is so life enhancing you cannot really ask for more.

It is expensive but worth every penny.

I cannot believe I am banging on like this about a vacuum cleaner!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very dated, 12 Mar 2013

I was told this was groundbreaking but in the event found it infuriating because despite the early promise its women were in fact all at bottom direly conventional.

I found the characters rather too indistinguishable, and would say read 'The Women's Room' or 'The Group' to enjoy really seminal writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book club choice - and a waste of money!, 12 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Butterfly Box (Kindle Edition)
I loathed this book. I thought the characters were all obnoxious, there was no tension to the 'plot' possibly because it was so laziliiy written. One should be able to distinguish a taut storyline : here it just staggered fairly pointlessly from one disrelated episode to another.

The 'butterfly box' of the title was a clumsy and contrived conceit which did not work in its context.

A very pretty personalised gift which looks more expensive than it is.

Service was efficient and delivery prompt. I would definitely buy this item again for other friends.

This review is from: Twibble Pink Zebra
Beautifully made and very pleasing (albeit I have bought many others I like better - but then it's not for me!)

Cannot go wrong with Jellycats.
