I did enjoy this book although not quite as much as its predecessor, "The Chocolate Girls". It did not convey the same sense of time, despite the author's efforts to refer to CND marches, the 6 day War and mini skirts - all of which I remember well! Also the plot began to feel very predictable and the ending was certainly no surprise. However for an undemanding yet by no means banal read I would recommend it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this very moving book - one I really couldn't put down. There are so many different strands to it and the way they all tie together in the end is very fulfilling . It has obviously been well researched but without being too pedantic I have to say that in the 1940's and early 1950's there was no such place as Ghana, it was then the Gold Coast until independence. Other than that slightly grating error I loved the book.

Even by the end of the book I was unsure how much was fact and how much was fiction. Of course there is a cast of well known historical characters but what about Leonora, the heroine of the book? However that uncertainty did not spoil my enjoyment. If the book was a slow starter, nevertheless it had me in its grip from early on. I learnt a great deal from what was obviously a very well researched narrative and was taken back vividly into a very dark period of Britain's past. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in the human side of history.

This book held me in its thrall throughout. It is a touching reminder of the privations and difficulties that people faced only a couple of generations ago. The characters were convincing and the development of the story was very believable. My only criticism is that the ending seemed a bit abrupt and, in all honesty, not very likely. So... maybe 5 stars for most of the book but 3 stars for the ending. So on average a 4 star review rating seems right.

I quite enjoyed this book but 'quite' is the operative word. I judge a really good book by the fact that it so ensnares me in its web that I can hardly put it down. This one I put happily aside for days on end. Why? I think perhaps the sheer predictability of the plot was the reason - you could never be in doubt what the outcome of the main storyline would be. Also there was an awful lot of detail - very well researched I'm sure - about growing/cleaning/opening/eating oysters which felt just too much. AND I don't like oysters anyway so perhaps that was why I was unmoved. One for oyster lovers obviously!!

This book covers a part of French history thar showed the good and bad in many people - not to mention the many degrees between these two absolutes. The whole story rings very true and I'm sure that the author has thoroughly researched the time and place. Perhaps not an enjoyable read as there was far too much cruelty in that historical time but certainly gripping. It was only towards the very end that I realised where the plot was heading. My only complaint - and the reason that I didn't give the book 5 stars - is that I would have liked a list of all the characters and their jobs/ occupations. There were so many people in the story that not all of them became fixed in my mind so a list that I could have referred back to would really have helped. Other than that small point I would thoroughly recommend this book.

I love "Strictly" of which Craig is such an important part so was sure I would enjoy this autobiography. Sadly I was only partly right as the book got bogged down in endless fairly trivial detail. It was like a vanity project and needed a good editor who could have stripped out the unnecessary bumph and got to the bare bones of what could be an interesting story. Also be aware that the book ends in 2009 so is quite dated by now.

This book didn't really hold my interest as the plot was all over the place and the whole book was rambling. I had no sooner got involved in the story when the timescale/ main narrating character would change. There were some extremely unlikely plot twists (identical twin brother separated at birth anyone?) which made me lose faith in the whole story. I did feel that there was a good book in there somewhere but sadly this wasn't it.

Once I had started this book I couldn't put it down. I loved the way the story gradually unfolded and clues that had been laid earlier on dropped in to place. Many sensitive subjects were beautifully addressed. Sometimes it could be difficult to decipher the "Darren's diary" sections of the book but I solved that by reading them out loud. How difficult must it have been for a literate author to write such "wrong" spellings? This is the first book by this author that I have read but it certainly won't be the last.

Not a book to rave about but a pleasant enough story to while away a few hours. I felt it was rather overlong and the main storyline, as revealed towards the end, was just too unlikely. As I'm not a coffee lover perhaps I fall a tad short of the target audience!
