1.0 out of 5 stars One Star, 14 Aug. 2017

Disappointing despite a strong start. Seeks recourse in an unbelievable twist; angry, unpleasant read

Brilliant; Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant are totally tremendous; this is a moving love story with pace and grace

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly daft book, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an utterly daft book, unfunny in the extreme and often grubby. One of those books whose appeal you just can't understand; stupid plot, poor characterisation and unbelievable action.

4.0 out of 5 stars What British higher education is really like, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone wanting to know about what British higher education is really like will love this book. Sharpe saw through the vanities and posturings of academics in an entirely prescient but also hilarious way. That said, the TV series is infinitely better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best novel I've read in more than a decade, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Independence Day (Kindle Edition)
An outstanding novel, most marvellously written. It describes the narcissistic failures of fatherhood (especially towards their sons) and how the promise of the young can be misunderstood and ruthlessly destroyed by the utter selfishness of their parents. It's a very remarkable work of art and why it should won two major prizes becomes obvious even before the first paragraph has been read. Richard Ford has written a classic in his own time. Very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Isaiah Berlin: A Life, 4 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Isaiah Berlin: A Life (Paperback)
Very well written and hard to put down for anyone interested in English and Oxford intellectual life from 1930 until 1980. But at times I felt the author had got far too close emotionally to his subject and some important but difficult issues were left under-explored or even unexplored.
