2.0 étoiles sur 5 Sadly not a Rosamunde Pilcher hit 18 novembre 2006
Par Patricia A. Frank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I just finished this book, and when I had read the last line, I wondered what had happened to Rosamunde Pilcher. Further--where is the meat? I checked the copyright date--1982. Her stride with the Shell Seekers hit in 1987, followed by September in 1990, Coming Home in 1995, and Winter Solstice in 2000. Sadly, I think I was reading before she became that marvelous storyteller. Everyone has to start, and this book foreshadows the descriptions and storylines she grows to entertwine so wonderfully. But not in this book. The characters are but briefly drawn, but never drew me in like the others above. I never got a picture of Cornwall or Penmarron as the other books had. I finished it as a task that needed finishing, not with the "I have to see what happens" and then, "oh, no, it's over" that her masterpieces gave me.

As a lover of Ms. Pilcher's work, I cannot recommend this one. If I had read this one first, I would never have picked up those other wonderful stories of hers. The reviews written are dismal as well...it is not "satisfying," "captivating," nor "an unforgettable journey." I actually want to forget this one. Sorry, Rosamunde. I do love your other work. I think this is a story that happened on the way to becoming a wonderful writer. Note the copyright dates is my word of advice to Pilcher readers. And if this was your first with her--go to one of the above mentioned!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Comfort and a cup of tea between two covers. 2 avril 2001
Par Denise Bentley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
That is what a Rosamunde Pilcher book has become to me. Her characters are well developed and likable, mostly they are flawed, with an inane sense of justice. This particular book introduces us to 23 year-old Prue who meets up with a young girl named Charlotte when they both board a train in London bound for Cornwall. Prue will be staying with her aunt Phoebe, while Charlotte will be staying with her far from doting Grandmother who just happens to live next door.
Pilcher writes beautifully of the surrounding countryside, which is always a delight when reading her books. In Cornwall, Prue will find fulfillment, and a little girl will find a home. As predictable as Pilcher may be it's how she presents her story that leaves one wanting more. The ending leaves the reader contented with a sense of deliverance for all involved; but why don't I leave that to this superb teller of tales. Kelsana 4/01/01

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Predictable and Unremarkable 31 mai 2001
Par Erin McGill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Having read The Shell Seekers before I read The Carousel, I was expecting a great deal more from this book than was delivered. It is your basic, everyday love story that is so madly predictable that you will find yourself yearning for something original to read. The story lacks depth and warmth; just when one gets to know and enjoy the characters, the story ends.
I wished for a great deal more background information about the characters while reading this book; The Shell Seekers told richly layered stories about the personal histories of its characters, in The Carousel, one must be content with a mere skimming of the surface of its characters and their lives.
If you are looking for a simple, short and uncomplicated 'Danielle Steel' sort of read, then this book is the one for you. Don't bother with it if you loved The Shell Seekers and are looking to recapture the magic it held. Personally, I was embarrassed for Rosamunde Pilcher; her publishers must have been shocked and disappointed in her. The Carousel is far below the quality one expects of the author, and was a very poor attempt at literature on her part.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 --Get away to Cornwall for a few hours-- 28 mai 2005
Par Judith Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Rosamunde Pilcher is one of the most reliable authors that I read. She always delivers an entertaining story. THE CAROUSEL takes place in Cornwall, a spot that this author writes about with a great deal of enthusiasm and comfort.

Prue Shackleton at the age of twenty-three, is an attractive and responsible young woman. Her mother feels that its time for her to settle down. Prue isn't sure about that even though there is a kind and wholesome Scotsman who is hoping to marry her. In her heart she knows that he's not the man she wants to spend her life with. On the eve of a visit to meet his parents in Scotland, Pure hears that her favorite aunt has just broken her arm and she rushes to Cornwall to help her.

On the train to Cornwall, Prue becomes acquainted with a sad little girl who is going to visit her grandmother. In Cornwall, she also meets Daniel Cassens, a well-known artist who she finds quite attractive. What follows is a story that involves everyone that I've mentioned and it all takes place in beautiful Cornwall.

For complete enjoyment and relaxation all that's needed is a Pilcher book and a cup of Earl Grey. I believe that I've now read all of Pilcher's stories, hopefully she'll write a few more!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Saddly disappointed 20 juillet 2006
Par Cecily Partridge - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I don~t know if this is Rosamund Pilcher~s first book or what, but I have to say that I was disappointed by it.

I picked it up at the library and when I opened the first page sitting in my favorite chair in my living room I was filled with anticipation...thinking I would have the same experience with this particular Pilcher book that I have had with all the others that I~ve read. Ahh, not to be. I found all of the characters lacking in development, whiny, and just not likable at all, with the exception of Charlotte. The description of the Cornish countryside wasn~t up to par with The Empty House and Coming Home, though nothing can ever compare to Coming Home. I had a hard time visualizing Phoebes house and her garden. I didn~t even get a full picture of Lily Tonkins. To be honest, I didn~t even like the characters names.

If you have never read a Pilcher book before, do not start with this one. If you do, I think you may never want to read another.
