"War Brides"
"War Brides"

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "War Brides" (Kindle Edition)
A pretty straight, non-glamorous look at how things were. A nice aside for anyone studying that period, being socially focused rather than the socio-economics of most standard texts.

Not sure how I've managed to bypass Kipling for all these years, but this was my first time read. Loved it to bits, and so glad it's on Kindle to dip into from time to time.

This review is from: Middlemarch (Kindle Edition)
I'm biased: this has been one of my all-time favourites for years and is re-read every 2-3 years or so. Immaculate writing and construction; a classic of it's genre. Love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm the kind of person who rarely gives up on a book - the only one that has ever consistently been put down is Moby Dick. But this is another. Not my cup of tea at all! I found the characters utterly lacking in...well...character and the whole thing just dragged on and on. Lady A's secret is certainly safe from me!

....and won't be my last. I haven't read many early 20thC American writers but was frankly entranced with this book. Beautifully observed, entirely of it's time, really, really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good holiday read, 14 May 2013

Entertaining, far-fetched, good hero, fast-paced - everything you need from a novel to take the the beach. Enjoyed this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable, 14 May 2013

As a baby-boomer entering the realms of middle-age, the premise of this book was very interesting, but i wasn't expecting such a very good read! Most entertaining, poignant at times but never silly about it, really good fun. I look forward to reading more about Ivy's exploits!

3.0 out of 5 stars Really not sure..., 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been told that glass nail files are the best thing since you know what, I'm not terribly convinced yet. This one has developed flat spots pretty quickly and to be honest, I can't see the merit of these over standard emery files.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
That rare thing, a book for very little money that you just know you'll read again. I really, really enjoyed this.
