I absolutely love this tale and I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say that it is well written and grabs the reader's attention immediately. The characters are well drawn especially Pea who is enchanting. Set in the South of France it is a child's view of her world and the adults in it.
I have bought it for several friends as I wanted to share my delight with others

Very unusual because of the invented Saxon/ Old English language. I really felt like I could see the world from the characters POV.

I don't normally read thrillers and I admit it took me a while to get into it. I thought the begining was a bit heavy on all the legal and business side of things but when it started to get exciting I couldn't put it down.
Lisbeth Salander is a unique and well drawn character and when I'd finished the book I started reading The Girl Who Played With Fire
immediately.

This review is from: Tulip Fever (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book so much. It was well written and well plotted; the story gripping. I really felt as if I dwelt in the world the author created, it felt so immediate and alive. The description and atmosphere was excellent.

Something about its setting and the characters reminded me of Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevallier due to being set in Amsterdam in the same period and concerning an artist and a love affair, but it was also far from being a hommage to that book. It was exciting and a real page turner.

I thought it was so much better than Exotic marigold Hotel (I haven't read any other Moggach novels but will now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph Amourette 300W bra, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my favourite bra. After trying many, many others I have come back to this one. It is really comfortable, very well made and lasts for ages. I have had several before and they are still good after 2 or 3 years. The fit is perfect for me so therefore comfortable. The colour range is good and it is an attractive design. I have always bought from a shop before but found Amazon is cheaper...at least in some colours.

This music is breathtakingly beautiful. Slow, sad and so simple sounding but so deep.
I am not a musician so cannot understand how something that seems to be played on just a piano and violin with so few notes can sound so expressive and emotional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harvest, 27 Sep 2013

This review is from: Harvest (Hardcover)
I really loved this book. I started reading a few pages and got the impression it was set in America so I put it aside. When I decided to have another go, and I'm pleased that I did, I found it is set in England although we don't know where. The time is also a mystery, possibly 18-19th century. But the point is that it doesn't matter, the voice of the main character who narates this story is authentic and draws you deep into his world as his tale slowly unfurls.

The narrator's world is a hard and cruel, nature governs his life, and that life is lived in a small and closed society. The relationships are fascinating. The scenes are vividly described. I am not going to give away the plot because half the pleasure in this book is that you're never sure where it is going.

This is nostalgia at its best, I am transported back to 1970....long hair, flares, guitars...the beginning of my youth...it is still a great rock anthem and all the better for being British!
