The Daughter Of Time
The Daughter Of Time
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a compelling read, 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read this so many years ago that the details came new to me. Tempted to follow it up, like young Carradine . Makes me feel like a kid with a computer game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good heart, good history, 25 Jan. 2016

This review is from: War Horse (Kindle Edition)
Joey's story works just as Black Beauty did, but the history behind it is even more horrific, and gives lessons just about forgotten now. Saw the final half hour of it on TV and bought the book immediately. So many will know about it already that I am not so much recommending it as paying the respects of a latecomer! Well worth reading.

This is the best presented kindle book I have read to date. The book itself is brilliant and has layers upon layers of meaning. I first read it many years ago. It seems even better now than it did then. Would highly recommend it for a good read, or re-read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Need for corrections, 27 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Early review: could have done with better proof reading. Author's name on cover badly mangled. Can this be replaced with a corrected version when there is one available. Bought the illustrated version because the illustrated version of Romola, which I am two-thirds of the way through reading is very well-produced with just the odd, small acceptable error here and there. Would recommend that to anyone, and will as soon as Christmas gives me time to finish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A warm and loving story, 10 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Sunday Shopping (Hardcover)
Love this book. Received it as a gift from America. It could be any grandmother playing a delightful bedtime game with her granddaughter. The game is active in so many ways - cutting out pictures, reading, sharing ideas. Reading it could inspire play for young readers and remind grandparents and parents of the existence of social games that do not need electronics. It is a warm and loving story.

5.0 out of 5 stars More true than many would know, 20 May 2015

You will just have to accept the five stars without a comment of twenty words. It is a book about reticence and hidden honesty. That is what really matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read again, 25 April 2015

This review is from: Wolf (Kindle Edition)
Must give five stars to a book I shall certainly read again. A compelling story, full of ideas that find a home with me. As relevant today as it was when it was written. Only the crises change locations, the rest remains as true, and tragic, as ever. Yet children do learn, and teachers try their best to teach,

4.0 out of 5 stars multi-layered, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Multi-layered - with the acceptance that life is full of grotesque, and tragic, and funny loose ends. A very interesting but not very comfortable read. But then, I don't think it was meant to be. Will read these stories again some time. I feel just a tad uneasy at the way the stories become formulaic. Orchestration?
