5.0 out of 5 stars An utterly convincing read., 4 July 2016

Liked the way the author created her fictional world. Initially. Then swallowed by the compelling story and the realistic characters. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating verbal collage, seems to me a work of sheer genius., 28 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant if grim book. A fascinating verbal collage, where the personal and historical snippets seem to add up a total impression of human life. Somehow, at the end, it has raised my spirits. Have loved it for years, thought I'm hard set to say exactly why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down, 4 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I generally don't like serial killer novels, but this was excellent - characters I could relate to, and care about. Not too gruesome. I found it hard to put down, which is pretty much what it says on the packet.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought it very helpful, clear and unpretentious. I will be following a lot of its recommendations which make more sense to me than any I've read before, which seem to assume that you can have a second life for marketing, and no life at all otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of life, 6 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Running On Empty (Kindle Edition)
It bounces along, full of invention and incident. I loved the character Ella and would have enjoyed seeing more of her. Enjoyed the story of Tom on the run. Works up to a striking climax. Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource, 18 Feb. 2014

What's to say? Much that's new to me, the stuff that I sort-of knew already presented with greater clarity. A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, 18 Feb. 2014

Liked it very well: still haven't got a convincing answer as to how neural processes produce subjective conscious experience, possibly because science has not yet reached a level of understanding that is capable of doing so.

This review is from: The Back Road (Kindle Edition)
I got caught up in the characters and found it hard to put the story down. Thought one scene was unconvincing...would give it 4 1/2 stars if that was an option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rediscovering, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved Shakespeare in school, but maybe now it makes more sense to me. The thing I'm taken by is the brilliant portrayal of ..jof Cassius's jealousy in 'Julius Caesar.', rather than some of the more critically acclaimed plays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant - always, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this since I was a girl. Fun, interesting characters, fascinatingly different times. Yet life and people are the same, and you learn as you're entertained.
