5.0 out of 5 stars Great. Heartwarming, 5 April 2013

I read this and loved it. So nice to read about grown ups falling in love and all the complexities and family pressures it brings. Bought another copy for my old mum.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but a bit tedious, 5 April 2013

This review is from: The Fever Tree (Kindle Edition)
I couldn't warm to the main character as she was such a drip. It wasn't a bad read and the story was good but she just irritated me.

I bought this as part of a retirement present for my space mad boss. He loved it and thought it was a great present - and it was a good read too apparently - not just a fun thing.

thoroughly enjoyed this book. great story, great characters and I learnt something! I didn't know much about Spain's involvement, or otherwise, with the war. Now I do. And I'm entertained to boot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, boring and unfunny, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as it was recommended in a magazine as a fabulous read and hilarious (it was another authors recommendation). I'm sorry but maybe it only appeals to a certain section of the populace, i.e. dumb aristocrats. It was unfunny and so dull I can't describe.

Very enjoyable book. Couldn't decide whose 'side' I was on. I could identify with all concerned. Very thought provoking and moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down, 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Liked Wolf Hall but did have to plough on a bit to get through it. It's one though is unputdownable. Went to bed very early on several nights to get to read more. Fascinating read. Highly recommended. If this is a trilogy as I understand I can't wait for the third one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clearly for public school boys, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well god only knows why it got the Times book of the year. Dull, uninteresting, and worst book I've read this year. I can only think it appeals to the public school boys -all that repressed homosexuality. I mean really, are we that bothered anymore. Poets, upper classes, gays -that's it really.

Wonderful story. Couldn't guess the end. So rich and descriptive. Detailed the fall of a lifestyle that no longer exists.
