Yesterday's Sun
Yesterday's Sun
by Amanda Brooke
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars average novel, 12 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yesterday's Sun (Hardcover)
This is an ok novel. Nothing particularly stands out about it. I really liked the idea of it, but it did not excite me and I was not in a hurry to get to the end which is paramount to a good novel. Somehow it did not work and the ending was very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth the money, 12 Sept. 2016

Really disappointed in this item. I bought it for my husband and he has used it a few times and finds it absolutely useless. It does not make nice coffee and is a piece of equipment that has been thrown in the back of the cupboard.


The Miniaturist
The Miniaturist
by Jessie Burton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as I expected, 28 Aug. 2016
This review is from: The Miniaturist (Paperback)
I felt this book was very well written and enjoyed the history lesson of the period. The descriptions of the streets and the houses were mesmerising and I easily became lost in the narrative. However I felt that the actual story lacked something. I was disappointed that the miniaturist never really materialised and thought that she didn't add anything to the tale. The story could easily have been told without the miniaturist, they just didn't intermingle.
I liked the character Petronella and although she was very young I could well believe that under the circumstances she was able to take over and assert herself. However given the period she lived in I'm not sure she would have forgiven her husband for his misdemeanours.


The Girl on the Train

This review is from: The Girl on the Train (Paperback)
I found this a bit disappointing given all the hype around it. It was very readable but not exactly a page turner.

This review is from: The Guilty One (Paperback)
I thought this was just an ok read. I felt the author was a bit naive in terms of the social worker and the foster carer. Firstly, Minnie would not have been allowed to foster only one year after having lost her daughter and her husband and secondly the social worker appeared to work 24/7. She was available to visit Danny on Saturdays and also was the one to pick him up from the prospective adopters on the Sunday when everything went wrong. Social workers may work long hours but on weekends the response team would be on hand.
Other than that it was an easy read. The ending was predictable I thought.

really ideal for frothing up milk although can't use much milk so it only accommodates one cup of coffee. However it does the job

5.0 out of 5 stars how to make money!!, 19 Jan. 2014

Interesting book, easy to read and some good tips. Depends whether you feel that you want to take the gamble. You won't get rich quick and if you haven't a bit of money behind you, you won't be able to do much with it.
