5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun!, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Prince (Kindle Edition)
I give this book five stars for its sheer enjoyment factor. The heroine is feisty and her observations often hilarious. The hero is appropriately enigmatic, and the prince--and in particular his relationship with the heroine--is really heartwarming. There was a definite social commentary trying to break through the surface, which was more or less successful at different points in the story, but on the whole I enjoyed this as a good-humoured romance with a down-to-earth heroine. Tight riding breeches, beautiful horses, skilled riders, and foreign climes: what's not to enjoy?

I bought this as a gift. It is a VERY BIG HIT and I am a very popular parent as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's easy and entertaining to read, 26 Jan. 2015

This book is a little gem. It's easy and entertaining to read, and gives little insights into many things. I've tried some of the exercises, and I do believe some of them will stick. I thoroughly recommend this book.

These poems are full of the kinds of observation that make you look at the world afresh. Fine detail, beautifully presented. Ms Brice has an acute eye and a lovely way with words. I thoroughly enjoyed these poems and will be dipping in again and again.

My daughter is thrilled with this product--it looks great. BUT it's not the strongest--it's got a crack in it after only a few days.

Wire coat hangers, but nicely coated and in pretty colours. Exactly as described. They do pack things very nicely into a wardrobe, with no bulk. Nice big hanging hook. I'll be buying more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for playing in the sea, 1 Aug. 2014

Exactly what you would expect: great boogie boards for playing with in the sea. Not fabulously strong but good enough for the price, and will last a summer season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely entertaining--I loved it, 1 Aug. 2014
Man, this was fun to read! Fast-paced, slick and hugely entertaining. It's like all your favourite TV shows condensed onto the page. Best of all, there are characters to become attached to. I'm attached. Can't wait for the next one.

I read an advance review copy.
