After reading this book - Lionel Shriver has made my list of favourite authors. A great examination of what happens to us when life does not go "according to plan" and the attitudes and preconceptions we - and others - hold about so many things which are inimical to our lives. A must read.

I enjoyed this book. Wordy but found the language flow strangely hypnotic. Engaging observations on the self-deception we can engage in, whether on the road to success, despair or acceptance and the unexpected price to be paid for such behaviour.

When you read a book - sometimes it is because you keep hoping it might get better. A difficult one this as I found the author was banging me over the head with all her particular hang ups. Could not relate to or like any of the principals.
A writer who confuses gritty realism with vulgar voyeurism. Would not really recommend this at all.

A tale of a dysfunctional family who have more downs than ups - full of wit, wisdom and a delightful use of language. If you like things sugar coated and frothy Bukowski is not your man, but if you are a realistic and can copy with gritty an excellent book.

Enjoyable read. Well written. William Boyd's novels are all different. This one "got going" about half way through. Would recommend.

A lovely story. Starting in Afghanistan, tells the story of a brother and sister, the hardships, joys and secrets of their family and friends (and the families of those friends) in a war-torn country, their separation and the very different path their lives, as a result, take. Interwoven with the stories of the people in their lives. I found I could engaged with all the characters found this a delightful read.

Product with latest fleece style bags, and filters was as described, and was actually delivered before the promised date, which suited me fine. A communication with the supplier was dealt with efficiently and courteously.

A good read, but not in the same league as Gone Girl.
