2.0 out of 5 stars wonderful ingredients, badly served, 30 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sugar Girls - Ethel's Story: Tales of Hardship, Love and Happiness in Tate & Lyle's East End (Kindle Edition)
What a fascinating and interesting subject to write about but written so blandly. It was rather like someone had all the perfect ingredients then under-prepared and over or under cooked. The flavour just about came thru, but was so disappointing.
I think a writer needs to re-do these books because the subject matter is so absorbing but the way you tell a story is so important too. Worth a read for the facts.

I buy a book to read and not nit pick about how badly served it is surely the wonderful ingredients should cancel out any badly served ingredients.

How do you redo history?

The Sugar Girls isn't a Catherine Cookson novel. It is a retelling of people's recollections of their time at Tate & Lyle's - no screenwriter has been involved in the process - yet! :)
