The Paying Guests
The Paying Guests
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written romantic melodrama, 21 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Paying Guests (Kindle Edition)
I would perhaps have given it five stars if I hadn't thought to myself that it wasn't quite as good as The Night Watch (more substantial) or Fingersmith (more twisty and exciting).
It was still good though, a page-turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, made me smile!, 16 Sept. 2016

I remembered a few of these from the New Yorker, like Oog and Moog, but it was nice to see them again. I wish I had remembered to listen to the author's radio 4 show but annoyingly I forgot!
Anyway, he's very talented and anyone could enjoy this book. It also reminded me to listen to the magnetic fields, I used to like that album!
It isn't really stories, more like sketches.

Interesting as a stand alone novel but enriched by having read Life After Life (which is probably a better book - it's more unusual so more memorable, but I did really enjoy them both!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible, but not very good either, 15 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold (Kindle Edition)
Didn't really care about the big secret crime, when it was revealed I just felt 'meh'. The characters were all rather thin, while Noel was written as if by a man who hadn't actually met any real women in his life. Cheesy predictable resolution at the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged when I took it out of the box., 29 Dec. 2015

Unfortunately it arrived with a crack in the corner, I can't see that it would be best good at protecting your iPad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading if you enjoyed the film(s), or even if you don't know anything about them, 1 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not particularly into reading horror but I saw this on offer and I had enjoyed the original film, so gave it a try, and really liked it. The book introduces more characters, more back story, and more ... gruesome details.
(Saw the American re-make film since, and liked that too!)

It's a love story really I suppose, albeit an unusual one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this, as I have all Kate Atkinson's books., 1 May 2015

This review is from: Life After Life (Kindle Edition)
The book has an interesting and original concept; to go through a life over and over and portray all the different ways it could have turned out. Beautifully written, very evocative.

1.0 out of 5 stars I know it's a YA book, so I read it half expecting trash, but it's absolutely rubbish!, 28 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Only Ever Yours (Kindle Edition)
It's as if someone has read the synopsis of an undergraduate module on feminism and painfully jammed all the topics into a world just changed enough from The Handmaid's Tale to avoid getting into trouble. Written in first person with *the most* bland and irritating narrator, there are also dull one-dimensional villains and lots of cheesy cultural references.
I would definitely not recommend this to teenage girls who I imagine are the target audience. They've got better things to do with their time I'm sure.
Someone could write a great YA feminist novel no doubt. This is far far far from that novel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter loves this film, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not scary, so it is perfectly suitable for sensitive children. My four year old found some Disney films too frightening and upsetting but this was fine.
Also, it's got really catchy tunes. I'm always humming the songs to myself!
And finally, Ro is brave, interesting, and different, that's why the prince falls in love with her, AND she saves the day herself, which I appreciate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 29 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Warm Heart of Africa (Audio CD)
This is definitely in my top 3 best-buy albums of the last 5 years. I can't think of anything I have bought since that I have enjoyed listening to as much as this. And yes, like everyone says, it does cheer you up!
