The Other Typist
The Other Typist
by Suzanne Rindell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Enough said., 10 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Other Typist (Paperback)
Intriguing, well written, brilliant book. Have read it twice and it's even better the second time. Fascinating insight into a period of history that I knew little about, well drawn characters and a plot that sucks you in even though you kind of know what is going to happen. The only book our Book Club has read in the past two years that everyone absolutely loved!

4.0 out of 5 stars As good, if not better, than ever, 17 Oct. 2015

Improved version of the already excellent Explorer Ridge walking boots. Very comfortable, stylish and robust. The sole seems more non slip than the last version, too, which is good. Always go back to these.


The Rose Petal Beach
The Rose Petal Beach
by Dorothy Koomson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious, repetitive and ultimately boring, 14 Aug. 2015

This review is from: The Rose Petal Beach (Paperback)
Oh this started so well!! Couldn't put it down!! Shades of Gone Girl - what secrets would emerge next??? But then it went rapidly downhill, repeating itself over and over. Almost gave up but wanted to know the denouement, which when it came was utterly unbelievable and stupid. As others have said, it was as if the author had no idea how to finish her story and just plucked something out of the air. Will not be reading anything else from this author!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unpleasant reading, 14 May 2015
This review is from: The Night Falling (Paperback)
I like Webb's books, but not this one. Disjointed, with unappealing characters. Very well researched, and I confess it did teach me a lot about post WW1 Italy, but I found it totally depressing and harrowing to read. There were some very gratuitously graphic parts that I had to skip through (and I am not normally squeamish), and why, oh why, as other reviewers have said, did she have to ruin it by that small chapter at the beginning? I actually gave up half way through as it was just all too bleak and nasty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could someone please explain the ending for me?, 10 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Burning Air (Paperback)
Started brilliantly, like her other books. Excellent twist in the middle. Hard to put down until it became farcical in places and was so disappointed with the twist near the end. Furthermore, the author seemed not to know how to finish, sadly, and I was left very disappointed and confused.

Would not buy again. Far too thick and unwieldy.

Too thin, stick together, only redeeming feature is that they don't fluff up.
