1.0 out of 5 stars Truly dreadful, 8 Jun 2012
The opening sentence made me think this would be an excellent class reader, but by the time I got to the end of the first chapter I was completely bored and no longer inspired.

I know it's won loads of awards but it definitely bored me, with characters that I really didn't care about - it was so dreadfully bad, I gave up with it (and it takes a lot for me to put a book down once I've started reading).

I don't know, and don't care, what the ending is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to her best, 19 April 2007
This review is from: An Absolute Scandal (Hardcover)
Having been a fan of Penny Vincezi's since "Old Sins", this novel is back to her best after the lesser "Sheer Abandon". After growing up in the 80s, the book brought back many memories of single life. This is definitely one to be read again and again - the best book I've read so far this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish artistic prose, 29 Dec 2006
This review is from: Rainbow's End (Paperback)
Having read previous Eileen Ramsay novels, this one also concentrates on romance within the arts. Not being a musician, I can't answer for the accuracy but the novel is an excellent and enjoyable read, although it ends slightly abruptly. I leave you to work out the significance of the diamonds ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Snapshot, 16 Sep 2002
This review is from: The Victorian Woman (Hardcover)
A snapshot of women in the Victorian era. Tried to cover most aspects of female life in the nineteenth century, but gave too few details.
Not suitable for academic research, but may be useful for GCSE level.
A coffee table book.
