3.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed, 11 May 2014
It is less well made than I had expected for the price: more shoddy. The mechanism to raise/lower the back does not work properly - it is very difficult indeed to take it down once it has been raised. (As I don't need this function, I won't raise it again.) I hope that the bed is stable and will wait to see - but will return it and ask for my money back if it proves not to be. It was very dusty - presumably from the factory - and would have been nice if it had been cleaned in advance. In particular, one of the catches on it was covered in grease.

Got to try Noel's techniques on my husband next!!! (According to a newspaper interview that I read, the actress Helenna Bonham -Carter adopted this approach!)

It's particularly poignant in that, on one level, it's about how a mother (Lily, a headmistress,) deals psychologically with the death of her child: a trauma that Eskapa herself suffered. It's also about how Lily has a hazardous affair with the American investment banker father of one of the pupils at her school - and the consequences of that behaviour. More commercial than Eskapa's previous books, I took in all 236 pages in one sitting (or, to be more precise, in one lying, given that I had 'flu.) A definite possibility for the Xmas stocking. And I can't wait for someone to reveal on… Read more
