4.0 out of 5 stars Cheers!, 22 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Bottle of Plonk (Kindle Edition)
This is a clever and intriguing little story which allows us to glimpse into the disparate though curiously interlinked lives of a number of fascinating people as we follow the journey of a humble bottle of plonk which no one really seems to want. The insights into these seemingly ordinary people provide an interesting social commentary of the late 80s and how the life and times affected each character.

Whilst I did not actually consider this novel to be `un-putdown-able', I confess I really did sit and read it in one afternoon - and with great enjoyment. I was quickly drawn into the lives of the different people `touched' by the bottle, every one of whom would make an interesting subject for a longer story. The observations about them are astute and their situations often quite poignant.

Jacquelynn Luben spins a very readable tale which holds interest throughout. I was particularly pleased with the ending; even though it was just what I expected, it was nonetheless very satisfying. An engrossing read which I would certainly recommend. A pity I have to choose between four and five stars, as (being a bit of a rebel) I would like to give this 4.5*! Well done Ms Luben.
