5.0 out of 5 stars Thankyou Ian McEwan, 25 July 2013

I heard Ian McEwan review this on the Today Programme and immediately rushed to get it onto my kindle.How have I missed this stunning novel?Beautifully written,sad yet spiritually uplifting.I disappeared into the book and dreaded finishing it!

Wonderful heroine.Triumph of the human spirit over adversity.One of those novels that it is difficult to emerge from, having become so deeply engrossed.

I love Sophie Hannah's books but I found this one a bit too far fetched.I was pleased that Charlie and Simon seem to be getting
' closer' and that Charlie might possibly get back to being a detective.keep them coming!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh!, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really disliked this.Wish I'd taken notice of other reviews.Very negative and over repetitive.I am a 65 year old pilates teacher and very interested in exercise for osteoporosis.I 'll be doing 'pilates for buff bones 'training in summer.As I read this I thought 'thank god I'm though the menopause otherwise I'd feel like topping myself!' I still have glowing skin;I still look feminine I can run for miles and turn upside down!Not that I am recommending my older clients to do lots of flexion -but please don't let's stop moving!

I've just had a run on reading all the books I'd missed in this series.It is good to read them all together as one becomes very involved in the family.Different style of Detective Fiction.Cosy and middle class in some ways but Susan Hill introduces some very painful issues-not just the crimes.I can't wait for the next one.

After 'The Tenderness of Wolves' this was a very mediocre story.Having said that it was entertaining enough.Don't expect the calibre of 'Tenderness'

3.0 out of 5 stars Weight Loss Pilates, 20 Jan. 2010
A very clear DVD.As a peronal trainer and Pilates teacher I was looking for ideas.I usually highly rate Stott Pilates but I don't think this will really bring about weight loss!Suitable if you are in need of really gentle exercise.Could be used with obese clients but not a very exciting approach.
