5.0 out of 5 stars Stayed up all night reading it, and still thinking about it now., 24 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Someone to Watch Over Me (Paperback)
This is a beautifully written book. Madeleine Reiss has somehow managed to create a novel that, whilst haunting you at times with the nature of the writing, is thrilling, sexy, incredibly moving and often funny too. I couldn't put it down. It felt like the perfect read, I relished the experience. I lost myself in the world of the novel, and when I came back to reality again I thought of my friends, my children, the way life turns up the unexpected, sometimes the unbearable, but so much hope and joy too. It is vivid in its colours and textures. You feel the weather, the sand on the beach, the soft skin of a child. I defy you not to be moved by this novel, and if you like a thriller with a smattering of gorgeous men thrown in for good measure, it has got all that too. The best read I've had in a long time.

As I have posted on another comment from julian jones, his only other 2 reviews are for books by Madeleine Reiss's sisters, this would hardly seem on the surface, therefore, to be helpful and unbiased reviewing.

Speaking of reviews in general, please let's keep them to those written by unrelated, privately or commercially, readers or the whole things's a waste of the would be purchaser's time. If the books are good then they shouldn't need any help.
