The Crossing Places: A Ruth Galloway Investigation
The Crossing Places: A Ruth Galloway Investigation
Price: £3.79

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 15 Sep 2014
I really enjoyed this and the forensic archeology angle is a bit different, Ruth, is an interesting character and is not the usual glamorous woman portrayed in books. The pictures painted of Norfolk certainly make it sound bleak and I should think the tourist office will hate it. The male characters the detective and the druid make a good foil and


The Outcast Dead: A Ruth Galloway Investigation
The Outcast Dead: A Ruth Galloway Investigation
by Elly Griffiths
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Others in the series were better, 15 Sep 2014
Not the best in the series as the story lines are getting very repetitive as she harks back to previous books, I am very bored with single mother struggling with childcare angle, for goodness sake she is meant to be a university professor, not poor,not stupid, get a grip woman and sort out a nanny and we can hear no more of the child. otherwise I like the forensic archeology angle but think this should be the last in the series or maybe one more to finish it and maybe her off. Elly Griffiths is a really good writer so we need a new series from her

1.0 out of 5 stars Total drivel, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Take Me Home (Kindle Edition)
I cannot understand the wonderful ratings, The heroine, falls out with fiance and leaves Scotland for London, leaving her dying sister at home with her brother, She appears selfish and self absorbed , Then she starts having paranormal visions. The fiance had a great escape when he dumped her he is the only one I thought in this silly tale showed an iota of sense. i am not going to finish it , I couldn't care less what happens to any of the characters and have to ask is this a book for teenagers as it is certainly not for an adult reader?,

I tried to like this book but found the heroine to be a really unsympathetic character. Okay, she falls in love and is let down, mostly through her own stupidity and then uses Jamie and his family. I really wished the book had ended differently, it might have saved this and made it at least 4 stars but sadly it carried on to a rather obvious end. Do not be put off Rosie Thomas if you read this , The Kashmir Shawl is wonderful

1.0 out of 5 stars KIndle alert, don't download, 28 Aug 2014
This review is from: Red Alert (Paperback)
Sorry but I just can't finish this book. Awful writing, thin characterisation and a totally unbelievable plot. I was lured into this by a reference toThe Glasgow School of Art and expected so much more than this frankly silly story. Time to hit the delete button on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Generation, loved it, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last a book whose heroines are my age group and with whom I can relate and identify . Would make a terrific TV series,

The four female characters, whose friendship has lasted, in spite of very different lived, each go through new challenges and struggle with getting older. The generation of stay at home children and ageing parents face up to difficulties that previous generations did not.In many ways they have it easy , money, jobs and feminism but that brings other challenges.

not much to say except as ever she writes well but don't judge her books by this.This is a book to read after you have read her other books , which are excellent, not before.
