The Four Streets (The Four Streets Trilogy)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a book I could recommend., 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An OK story, but not a page turner. Too much of a mix up between Irish and Liverpudlian. The grandmother comes over from Ireland and calls her grandchild 'queen', not an Irish coloquialism but a Liverpool one, so she would not have used this terminology.The telling of the story is choppy and confusing as to what year they are in at any time. Not a book I could recommend.

A classic tale of the Dublin lockouts in 1913. Real, gritty and often heartbreaking.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not the story of Dido Belle, in ..., 9 July 2014

This is not the story of Dido Belle, in fact the author makes it perfectly clear that she hasn't got any definitive history of the girl. I grew tired of reading the history of the slave trade, and that is not what the blurb says this book is about. Very disappointing.

I bought this book in error, thinking I was purchasing another Belle. However I decided to read it; and I am sorry I bothered.

Goes lovely with the toaster I already had. The cream colour is warm and the overall appearance of the kettle is quite smart.

Really happy with this bedding; I was a bit worried when I saw someone else's review stating that it wasn't very soft, but perhaps they have especially sensitive skin, or just wanted to boast about where they normally buy their bedding. For the price, this is really good value.

This is one of my favourite dresses, soft material, really comfortable to wear, and gets compliments every time I wear it.

Sadly, I cannot use this item. I had so been looking forward to receiving it, only to discover that whenever I put my ultra sensitive feet anywhere near it, it tickles like crazy.

However, as my husband thinks it is the best invention since the wheel, I felt it only fair to give it the deserved 5 stars. He has a severe back injury, and until I bought the shower foot he has struggled. He doesn't have particularly sensitive feet, so this item is wonderful for him, and I am sure it would be for anyone why can get past the tickling part.

Am reading this book for the second time, having read it some years ago. The story of Kassandra of Troy is wonderfully told, bringing the legend of Troy to life.
