I would, especially when it has been awhile and I've forgotten the plot or I'm dying for a good Brit book/
Yes. I have bought and read all of her books that you have to offer.
Elouise because she is witty, interesting and companionable.
This is not a chick lit, although you put it in that category. This book reminds me of some of Joanna Trollope's books. The complexity of the characters, the wit and unexpected plot twists are superb. As satisfying a read as a really delicious dinner out. The dialogue is perfect and I like the range of ages in the characters.
As I am legally blind, I am unable to read a print version. Ergo, Audible.
I think the Devil Wears Prada was very good. The reader was superb. At the time, it was cutting edge and also very funny while at the same time with serious undertones about real problems.
I cannot answer this question. The sequel was different. What did annoy me a bit was that Andy seemed so incapable of speaking for herself or acting - when she is protrayed as an intelligent, feminist woman. When the reader can "see" what is going on and Andy cannot see this, it is unbelievable.
I don't know. The title is misleading.
I thought the character development was lacking in this sequel. I wanted to know more about Lily and found Emily's character not liking. Also, I thought Max was one-dimensional. I would have enjoyed a fun scene with Christian. Also, too much baby-icky details.
I loved best the interaction between the author and his wife and his children. I loved the hilarity of the descriptions of the towns visited.
I loved Dinah, the wife.
In the animal park with the lions. The world's largest pencil. The penthouse scene in Edinburgh.
A family's car journey through Britain with two tots. Don't really know as I am not up on films.
The back story and account of the author's father's declining health and end was poignant, but not overdone. It read REAL. One felt as if present.
That it was so very, very well-written and the suspense kept going and building until the very end. I read lots of British mysteries and this one kept me guessing throughout. Great detail and dialogue.
Perhaps a P.D. James or a Reginald Hill, but it is unique book and difficult to make a comparison accurately.
She is a brilliant narrator. I have already downloaded the next in the series. By the way, can you please get ALL of Hannah's novels? Three is not enough.
the Dirty Secrets of Motherhood
As with any good mystery, the characters were believable and with human frailties. I look forward to more of Simon and crew. The British really know how to write a perfect mystery. I can't get enough.
