Not what it seems,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Exmoor Files: How I Lost A Husband And Found Rural Bliss (Hardcover)
I really wish I hadn't spent the money on this tedious book written by a whining and bitter person. I was swayed by the fact that most Amazon reviewers seemed to give it five stars. Having now read it I wonder why.
I had never heard of Liz Jones before, never read her column. I was expecting the book to be about her move to the country and I assumed that, because she was moving to the country, she would therefore be a country lover. If she is, she managed to disguise it by constantly complaining about everything and appearing to hate everything - particularly her ex-husband (who gets about as many mentions as the countryside). And she doesn't appear to have found any bliss- rural or otherwise.
I have since looked her up on google and have read some interesting facts that she leaves out of her book.
I can't believe that so many readers have been enthusiastic about this writer who appears to me to be tremendously irritating and self-centred. I wish I had bought something else to read.
