Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Coldplay : Really easy piano (Broché)
This book is for all those people who love Coldplay but would love to spend an afternoon pretending to be Chris Martin. It's got some great notes about the stories behind the songs. There are helpful tips on how to play the songs. And whether you're a new piano player, brushing up your rusty skills, this is a great way to ease yourself into piano.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More Honest Approach to Jane Austen lit, 1 septembre 2010
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict (Broché)
I love all those novels written in the aftermath of Austen...but Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict is probably going to be your most honest, don't-beat-around-the-bush, no romanticisation sort of novel. You'll get your Darcy and Wickham, but you'll also learn about the rare bathing, the dealing with your period, and the grime of the everyday from this period.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Travel with your novels, 1 septembre 2010
Novel Destinations is a really fun reference to have on your shelf. I've been living in Europe about two years now, and found myself wishing I could just sort of follow Jane Austen's trail. Was so glad that someone else had had the same wish. Novel Destinations is a fantastic book to have on hand for all those moments you want to see where the literary greats walked.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 O'Farrell's best yet, 1 septembre 2010
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : After You'd Gone (Broché)
I absolutely love anything Maggie O'Farrell writes. I started with The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, but frankly, each O'Farrell novel I read seems to get better than the last (if that's possible). Her characterization is phenomenal. Her plot lines are incredibly interesting. And her word choice is the best part altogether. I think you could just open an O'Farrell book, read a line at random, and have learned a little something about writing novels. Great stuff. After You'd Gone is no exception. Great story on dealing with loss. The flashbacks are so interesting. The love story woven into the novel is really just absolutely beautiful. I think it would be impossible not to like this novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For any book lover, 1 septembre 2010
I really enjoyed Reading Like a Writer. Prose gave some great reading list suggestions, some great practical tips that apply not only to reading, but also to writing. I nearly always had a notebook beside me as I read her book, copying down quotes. Very helpful book. I'll never read a book the same way after having read Prose's Reading Like a Writer.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Destination Weddings For Dummies® (Broché)
I recently got engaged and really have no idea what sort of wedding I'd like. But after reading Destination Weddings for Dummies, I feel fully equipped to plan a destination wedding, and moreover, feel very motivated to do a destination wedding. We'll see... But in any case, great book. Easy to read. Nice, practical tips. Good for "dummies" and every one else needing some well-laid out advice.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox (Broché)
An enjoyable read, to be sure. When I told a friend that I was starting to really appreciate the Gothic novel (think DuMaurier's Rebecca, Collins' The Woman in White, the Bronte sisters, etc), she recommended O'Farrell's book to me. While it isn't the same level as Bronte or DuMaurier, I was engrossed from page one. The relationship between the sisters in this book was really compelling. There were enough plot twists that I was never bored and never entirely "on top" of things. I enjoyed O'Farrell's writing style, and after having read her book, found myself back on Amazon, ordering her other novels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Walk with Jane Austen, 3 mai 2009
Almost two years ago, I received Smith's A Walk with Jane Austen as a gift from a friend. I hadn't yet taken the time to read the book, but this winter when I moved to France, I decided to bring it along. Every day, to and from work, I'd pull it out, and read this exceptionally insightful, witty, yet sometimes sad; intelligent, but always entertaining piece of nonfiction. While I'd always loved Jane Austen, her books, and the films based on her works, I have never felt quite so strong an emotional attachment to (as Smith would call her) Jane as I did while reading this book.
Recently, I notice myself dropping Jane into my everyday conversations. "You know what Jane would think of that?" or "Did you know that Jane used to...?" or "Remember when Jane said...?"
Smith's book turned out to be a wonderful surprise for me--one of those rare books that I know will stay in my memory and in my heart forever.
