3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrated, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The meaning and subtlety of this novel was so deep that it rather passed me by! Which is a shame, as it paints a fascinating picture of life and culture in post-war Japan and, whilst the sadness and sense of loss is palpable, it is rather lost in the complexity of the allegory. The overall effect is one of frustration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreakingly sad, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winter in Madrid (Kindle Edition)
Deeply moving novel
that left me feeling very sad as a result of the unfulfilled destinies. Made me more aware than ever of just how lucky we are in our modern lives and culture. This is not just a romantic novel, but an enthralling thriller and an education on the harsh realities and powerful political and historical influence of the Spanish Civil War. Thoroughly recommended.


The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars Harold Fry, 11 July 2013
The most moving book I have read in a very long time - deeply tragic but yet heart warming. Can't help feeling the author is really going to struggle to match the emotion and power of this story in her second novel, but I would thoroughly recommend 'Harold Fry' to anyone. An excellent read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Convincing but boring, 11 July 2013
Presents very sound and logical explanations for a wide range of supposedly 'unexplained' phenomena, and presents the proper scientific approach to paranormal investigations in the correct way, but doing so over and over again doesn't make it more convincing, it just makes it boring!!

2.0 out of 5 stars But a rather predictable day at that, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some sharp observation is sadly somewhat wasted on this extremely predictable story which has too many episodes that are rather laboured

A wide range of ideas are presented succinctly and with balance. An excellent introduction to the subject. Well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great mind, poor book, 24 Feb. 2013
There are many easier to understand books on the subject than this, despite it being written by the man himself, as a result of the unnecessarily flowery and verbose language and style. However, if you can see through the fog of the language, the way his insights into the reality of space-time developed can be perceived.
