5.0 out of 5 stars A real groundbreaker, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shining Girls (Kindle Edition)
There aren't many of them, but they jump out at you. They're one offs, books that take the genre somewhere different, and make you look at something bigger than the puzzle. This is a real beauty.

Nicely done. Good characters and psychologically insight. The setting is well realised, realistic, and totally believable. The author is particularly adept at portraying relationships. I shall look for more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars How have I missed this series?, 8 Nov 2013

Glorious series. Really quirky, beautifully researched. The characters are fully realised and totally credible in a unique world that isn't quite real, although you wish it were.

One of the most unusual heroines I've come across for a long time. Stella is so compartmentalized it's painful to watch. Really well written . Look forward to the next one.

This is such a joy. Such original language and amusing reversal of history. A book that adults can enjoy as well as children.I wish I had noticed it when my own lads were young. They'd have loved the setting and the adventure.
Going to look for more in the series now.

Loved it. A really original concept unless you are old enough to remember Randall and Hopkirk Deceased. Particularly liked the choice of characters. Looking forward to reading more of this series.

Well written and fascinating biography of a much loved character actress. Very funny in places as you might expect but never spiteful or mocking. A real appreciation of an eccentric treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another glorious Fen mystery, 7 July 2013

So pleased to find another Edmund Crispin detective novel. He makes me laugh like a drain. The story almost doesn't matter. The beauty of the book lies in the language, the erudition and the wonderful humour.
