5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this too quickly. I was going to hear Steve Watson speak about this book at Chorleywood; I would have got a free copy but was so excited by the description that I had to gorge on it before I went. What an exciting idea - it's not surprising this first novel was snapped up to Hollywood A list. Steve also helped me take the plunge into early retirement from the NHS and realise that, actually, if I can be as well off and write - it's a no brainer choice. I don't expect to be nearly as successful as SW, but I am enjoying trying.

This review is from: Before the Poison (Kindle Edition)
Not a DCI Banks book, but familiar settings and a great storyline as usual. I was a bit upset when DCI Banks became a TV series because, firstly, I'd read them all so would always know the ending and, secondly, PR paints such an atmosphere that I had clear images in my mind and didn't want anyone else's to spoil things for me. I've sort of got over it, but it was nice to read something to imagine afresh.

I didn't think you could follow up Chocolat, but JH has done this a few times. I loved Lollipop shoes, but this is a bit more familiar to anyone who loved Chocolat.

Not my first SF, but different from the others I read, and persuaded me to buy more. A great example of an unreliable narrator - but read it for yourself.

I had finished all the Peter Robinson's and the Sophie Hannah's and was feeling bereft, and someone at the swimming pool suggested LB. I have read everything he's written. Strong story lines, sort of psychological thrillers. Keeps you guessing. You can't go wrong.

She loves to cook, and having terrible reflux was a disappointment, so this seemed the right thing to do. She liked it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger Chronicles, 19 May 2014

I get so cross with JA - he keeps doing this. You get right to the end of the book, then he throws in a new one in the last sentence - and you have to wait until he writes the next one to get back to the story. He should rename them the Cliffhanger Chronicles. I get even crosser with myself, because I keep falling for it. I shall have to fall for the next one, too.

A little blast from the past for me, as I first had this when I was a teenager (MANY years ago). It is still fresh and for those who love green, grassy, herbal scents.

I did love this, having lost contact with it in the 70s. Nice to be reacquainted and it hasn't aged - maybe that's wishful thinking on my part, as it takes me back too, but why not.

The only problem was that Daddy wanted to keep his lolly, but had to eat it straight away as she wanted the stick back. More sticks??
