    "Very Fay Weldon"

    A 21st century Canterbury Tales.
    Rather too many characters in the first chapter. If you don't concentrate, you may find yourself thinking who? later on.
    Rula Lenska tries hard with the accents but she doesn't do Liverpool. She tries but her Liverpudlian character meanders from Scotland to Ireland via Northumbria-I even spotted Welsh Valleys in there!
    Tended to drag somewhat and become rather samey but easy to listen to while gardening (which I hate)

    "great holiday read"

    Although Fay Weldon is not on my list of favourite
    authors, the blurb on this book interested me and I
    did really enjoy it's escapism. It is more like a
    series of short stories with a linked narration.

    After you get past the highly unlikely premise of
    these women choosing to spend Christmas in a
    Scottish spa, it was easy to be drawn into the
    women's tales. I almost felt as if I was one of
    them, sitting in the Jacuzzi, listening to the weird
    wonderful and sometimes macabre stories that unfold.
    I have also listened to the abridged version and do
    prefer Sian Thomas reading to Rula Lenska who tends
    to over emphasise her speech.

    "Enjoyable, but flawed"

    Overall I thought the book worth listening to, but didn't think it was Fay Weldon at her best. Her hall-mark divergent mind is on full-throttle: murder, deceit, supernatural happenings, abduction by Arab Sheiks and the bad and selfish behaviour of men, of which there is too much: things have moved on from the early days of the women's movement and it sounds out-dated. The stories are varied, some better than others.
