Stretching the limits of your belief in the name of fiction is all peachy but when a conclusion goes this far I tend to feel a bit patronised; it's like the author said " It's fiction ...just go with it - believe it because I say so" Hmmm? I'm really annoyed because up until that point I was reall...

Sarah Goodwin is such a fabulous writer- her stories are real (although this one required a small suspension if disbelief), gritty, and they resonate with you long after you've finished reading them.

suspend disbelief. the premise is really not very plausible, but it's a fun "what if this happened?" kind of thing.very British, which always distances me a bit, and I often struggled to understand the motivations of the two leads. but overall, not bad.

2.5 stars, rounded up to 3.. because I'm in a happy mood ;)I find it rather difficult to rate this book.. The story premise is unbelievable at best, the writing, though, was decent enough. Enjoyable, kind of, if you are able to graciously ignore the downright excessive and overdone plot, which is fi...

The basic premise of the book is completely outlandish and improbable. But the enjoyable writing and skilled framing of the story actually helped it to carve out 3 stars.

DON'T BUY FROM LULU. Since I bought it at Lulu-no go on the whole reading thing.Even downloaded Adobe Editions, still can't open the file.Can't recommend Lulu if they have DRM on it. Not worth the hassle. A fool and her $1.59 ...ETA-I got to read the book because a friend was nice enough to loan it...

No DNF for me, nope! This book belongs to the category 'Fairy tales for grown-ups' with coincidences that are quite unbelievable. The whole setting of the story was rather bleak and dreary, so that while reading even I was near depression, although normally a rather positive thinking person.

I really enjoyed this story, and it was refreshing to read about characters that actually felt like they were struggling to get by not someone's idea of what struggling is. Reading about billionaries is ok, but it's nice to see characters I can relate to sometimes. There are parts that could feel a ...

Very well written novel about a man who lost his memory. It was first person POV and the atmosphere is partly quite bleak.As the memory loss is more or less permanent, the book is more about finding out who he is now and for the rest of his life, although Connor does look into some events from his "...

It's weird how these things come in batches cuz I've really rather enjoyed the past few books I've read. Maybe I'm just more amenable towards them cuz of the season or something (I can't imagine why; I despise the cold). However, this book is good in a very non-conventional way. I don't think I'd ev...
