Lyrebird: The uplifting, emotional summer bestseller

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 1 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this incredulous and unrealistic, the characters undeveloped and The Lyrebird in particular highly unlikely. Not my kind of novel at all, but that might be me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and different, 27 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unpredictable and uplifting narrative, and I felt such empathy for Eleanor. I enjoyed the character development and how the author gradually reveals why Eleanor behaves how she does. Relationships between characters are carefully drawn out, and all the characters are so credible. I had heard good things about this book, yet found it even better than I expected.


A Walsh Family Collection Set (Rachels Holiday / Angels / Anybody out There)
A Walsh Family Collection Set (Rachels Holiday / Angels / Anybody out There)
by marian keyes
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars More than meets the eye, 26 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time, well packaged and in good condition. I knew what to expect with Marian Keyes, whom I believe is underrated and derided as "chick lit". Yes the narratives are fairly simple but I enjoy her psychological insights into friendship, love, rejection, anxiety, sadness , i.e. everyday life, and her use of humour.

This review is from: According to Yes (Kindle Edition)
A rather unbelievable storyline and characters, but an enjoyable fairy tale to read on the beach. Some amusing moments, and some embarrassingly crass ones. A diverting bit of entertainment.

Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

2.0 out of 5 stars Writing and style was poor, I felt, 15 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was chosen by our book club for this month's read. It was frothy and frivolous and an okay but predictable read to while away a rainy day. Writing and style was poor, I felt, with lots of inconsistencies and loose ends in the narrative. Worth the 1p I spent on a used copy (just about!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this book, 13 Dec. 2014

Enjoyed this book, well drawn characters and some laugh out load moments as well as the angst of striving to be accepted by peers in the first term of University. Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars despite excellent reviews I did not enjoy this book, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Longbourn (Paperback)
Disappointing, despite excellent reviews I did not enjoy this book. I expected a 'below stairs' perspective of Jane Austen's Pride and Predjudice as promised in reviews, but the neither the narrative nor the style had the wit, nuances or social observation of Austen. Perhaps this was too much to expect, but the plot was contrived and predictable, the characters clumsy and one dimensional and the style banal and pretentious.
If you enjoy a Mills and Boon style period romantic piffle this might be a passable holiday read, otherwise avoid.
