The Girl on the Train
The Girl on the Train
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Some excellent tension as Rachel drunkenly stumbles from one scary situation ..., 16 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some excellent tension as Rachel drunkenly stumbles from one scary situation to another. Gets a bit bogged down with tedious passages in the middle when she is trying to remember what happened. Time shifts a nuisance when using a kindle as one has to keep going back to get it in perspective but this seems to be the fashion with a lot of contemporary fiction.

Just what I wanted, these correction pens seem to be unavailable in shops.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time and money, 16 July 2016

This is not a book at all, it is a series of questions about the book.
I had to buy the proper book as we had chosen it for our book group and there was no way I could cancel this useless 'trivia'. I rate it no stars but had to click on one star to submit.

2.0 out of 5 stars 1930s humour, 23 Jun. 2016

Decided it was time to read a book by this author. For me the 'humour' was silly and the racist language offensive. The plot was clever but the mix up of characters was tedious.

Supposed to be very funny but I found it fairly tedious. We were divided in our group; I am one who doesn't want to read it again!

5 Cities Hand Luggage Cabin-Sized Trolley Hand Luggage Bag/ Holdall, Purple

4.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose, 1 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No nice places inside to put bits and pieces like a more expensive cabin case. But looks OK, has one pocket on top which can be locked. (Not with the supplied padlock which is a waste of metal.) Unfortunately I put a leki stick inside and it made a hole despite the fabric being very tough so beware of that. Holds a lot; make a map of where things are so you can get them without unpacking. Was fine for Ryanair and Norwegian economy. If you are very tall the handle is too low for comfort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult book about the Burma railway, 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong subject, well written. I had it for my book group, found it very long and the hardback very heavy to hold. Some good touches, writing vivid but I gave it up as the descriptions of what happened to the prisoners was too horrible. Also the main character had an affair (before he was a prisoner!) which went on for several chapters and for me was very tedious. He was still having affairs in his seventies!

Moving story of a young girl starting off in life. Good supporting characters and interesting from social history point of view.

Well written and half way through was 'couldn't put it down'. however it did then get a bit bogged down as it went on. However good story with a twist at the end.
