The Good Wife by Elizabeth Buchan
The Good Wife by Elizabeth Buchan
I agree with others that this book started off 'unputdownable' despite being slightly irritating to begin with. What finished it for me was when Meg turned up uninvited in Italy and was lamely told 3 or 4 times by Fanny to leave. She didn't leave and despite that, Fanny took her sight seeing and out to restaurants. I felt the main character was a complete doormat. I cheered when Meg died. Maybe Fanny put up with her situation because her husband earned good money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gripping but annoying., 27 May 2008
I have to say I found the tale gripping and I like reading McEwan's books as the style of writing make a change for me. But, and it is a biggish 'but' I cannot get over the stupidity and naivety of Colin and Mary - no one forced them into visiting Robert and Caroline's apartment for a second time, but visit they did with disastrous consequences. You'd think they would have enough warnings not to after the first time. Like a previous reviewer mentioning the fact that the couple could not find a restaurant in the evening, credibility is stretched.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, 15 May 2008
I only checked this album out in 2008 after discovering Sean Lennon's music in 2006. All of the tracks are very listenable with the exception of 'Blue Train' which I find I always skip, but apart from that, I love the diversity of songs. Nothing quite like it in the charts at the moment.
