This Longing: Poetry, Teaching Stories, and Letters of Rumi
This Longing: Poetry, Teaching Stories, and Letters of Rumi
by Jalalu'l-Din Rumi
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Rumi, 10 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After seeing inspiring quotes from Rumi all over the internet, I decided to read the longer form poetry behind them. I wasn't disappointed by the introduction or translation.
For anyone who wants to read Rumi but doesn't know where to start, I would recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted and compelling, 4 Jun. 2017

This was a compelling story straight from the start. The ending was a surprise and I immediately purchased the alternative version to see more of this world. Great characters, great world building and an impressive style.

This review is from: Poppy Jenkins (Kindle Edition)
There is so much to love about this book, but for me the highlight is the delightful Welsh setting. Clare brings the surroundings to life with vivid description and the cast of characters makes for a book with layers and dimensions, rather than an over-simplified romantic plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic characters and location, 24 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this book because I was in the mood for a summer romance in an interesting location. Giselle Fox does a great job of bringing the settings to life as a perfect backdrop for the romantic tension. I'll certainly read more books like this from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book, 16 May 2017
I really enjoyed this book. The frustration between the two characters felt real rather than contrived. One of my favourites by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, 22 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wicked Girls (Kindle Edition)
This novel has all the key ingredients required for a page-turning thriller: character, plot and pace. Alex Marwood makes us feel sympathy for characters who, on the surface, we should despise. The psychological element to the book allows the pace to ebb and flow in such a way that the reader cannot help but be moved along with it.

I doubt there will be anybody who hasn't followed a harrowing news story and been quietly fascinated - this story is disconcerting in the way it goes beyond what makes the titillating headlines to the reality underneath. It's also nice to see such an evocation of place in an English setting. Normally something this vivid is only seen in the American city-scapes.

Definitely recommended - looking forward to the next book from this author already.
