This review is from: Last Christmas (Kindle Edition)
Not the sort of book I would normally read but wanted something Christmassy - bog standard romance with predicatable ending and a two-dimensional baddie -nice rural/village setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had for a few weeks and no problems. Had one of these before from a different supplier - it probably won't last for ever but should get a couple of years or more out of it -easy too use, clear and reasonably loud. Sticks to the freezer so doesn't get lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have For the Serious Fan, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a 16 year old fan who two weeks on is still ploughing through the detail but is absolutely thrilled. Probably a must have for the serious fan of the books - possibly too in depth for the casual fan or someone who has only watched on tv.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting insight into a world that exists in modern day London but is largely invisible to most of us. It switches between the young, hopeful and slightly rebellious Chani and the older slightly disillusioned Rabbi's wife. Like all enclosed communities it is warm, loving and stifling. The characters are believable and draw you in and the ending is well done. I don't know if it is realistic but I assume so -the author appears to be trying to be both fair and realistic. An easy read but interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy for travelling to US/Canada, 15 Sept. 2014

Bought four sets for a family holiday to Canada to use with various phones, tablets, laptops etc. No problems -chargers plugged in and worked fine. In a couple of cases getting the UK plug in was a bit stiff but got there with a bit of pushing. Bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really wanted to love this book. I had hoped it would either be a nostalgic read of university life (not really but then I'm a younger than the characters) or a 'modern day Brideshead' but it didn't really deliver. I liked the main character and found her parents interesting but found her friends, apart from Bobby, rather dull and indistinguishable. I think the real problem is that this book is trying to say something important but it's not really clear what while somewhere along the line it decides to be a mystery story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 15 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Daughter (Kindle Edition)
Haunting story of a teenager's disappearance and a mother's pain and guilt as secrets and lies emerge. It switches between the events immediately before and after Naomi's disappearance and the present day, a year later when she is still missing. The time chages are slightly awkward at first but you get used to it and as I read on I couldn't put it down. I would recommend especially to the parents of teenagers but others also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Sequel, 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved it - found it hard to put down -the sort of book I couldn't help reading as I walked along the street. Better than book 1 because the characters are more developed. Like all characters by this author they are rounded and flawed which is their strength and I am a huge Cormoran fan. Some criticisms have said the plot was unlikely -honestly I have yet to read a detective novel that is totally realistic. That's the point surely? But this kept me guessing although in retrospect the clues are there and I find Cormoran's role as private detective more plausible than the way PIs are written in some other books. The murder is a bit gruesome so avoid if you are squeamish but I can't wait for book 3.
