5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it, 20 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Legacy: Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
It was not quite what I had expected and really is an upmarket family drama but what terrific characters and acting. I was gripped by it. Certainly at points it got a bit unlikely or silly but I enjpyed it as much as the Borgens and Killings,

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing, 20 July 2013

Might work better on a re-read. I had a feeling that I had missed some depths which only became apparent towards the end. So a slow burner but had its merits

I have to ration how much I watch and sadly only one episode to go- absolutely transfixing as we watch both state and private lives unravelling

4.0 out of 5 stars another great book about Patrick and Erica, 20 July 2013

I think that you need to have warmed to the characters already. The back stories continue across the individual plots. Some of the better translated of the nordic novels and less noir than many

3.0 out of 5 stars a brave book, 20 July 2013

but not one which I rated beyond the insight which it afforded to the condition. I didn't warm to the key characters which perhaps did not help

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best books which I have read, 20 July 2013

This was an unexpected delight. A slow burner with great depth. You may need to persevere to fully appreciate the emotional pull- deals with some cataclysmic life issues.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed after all the hype, 25 May 2010
This review is from: An Equal Stillness (Paperback)
I can see from reading the reviews that this novel is one which readers tend towards really liking, or feel a palpable sense of disappointment with. I had great expectations- and for the first few pages it bode well. However the writing style, which to begin with ( and I agree with others here) I thought captivating, became repetitive and over-worked. Some of the best writing seems to be effortless. The sort of writing where you think you could have done the same ( but in reality of course was in fact a great effort). I simply couldn't raise any interest in the characters, and began to skip great chunks of text which were clearly of the same ilk as previous chunks- this constant use of language to draw metaphors with art and overly elaborate prose. I eventually gave up through simple lack of interest in what would happen next. I am though glad that others enjoyed it. Perhaps it just wasn't for me. If I had an advice for the writer, I would say don't rely on using colourful language (sic) to hold the reader- instead work on the characters and of course the simplicty- the bare bones of the story which draw the reader in. Though I am not a writer, just a voracious reader.
