No not yet as not had the chance to get to WH Smith - looks good, love her work and apparently it is meant to be her best book to date.

am half-way through - it's brilliant. I love Rose Tremain.

losing you was fine to read on the train

but a bit repetitive and one paced

have you read Catch me when i fall, but nicci french - its about a woman suffering from depression. I can't decide if i loved it or hated its pressumptions.

no never read one of hers before..i think i got this one in the supermarket with an anna shrieve one

not exactly demanding reading either

might look out for that

lucyellensmum Tue 08-Jul-08 17:28:44

i have read a couple of hers before and yes, you do zip through them, bit samey though. Catch me when i fall is sort of the same, but it has some interesting twists, its quite sad really. Very pertinent to me just now.

definitely worth getting this offer

i am more than half way through and it is interesting tho i am not a big fan of the writing style

not sure if she always writes like this or it is the protagonists voice

i found thre second half much better than the first..a good read tho maybe a little too easily resolved

I've just finished it and really enjoyed it although like you say, the ending is a bit too convenient.
What didn't you like about her writing style? There weren't any memorably beautiful lines that I wanted to read over and over before continuing but I found it drew me into Lev's world easily.
I read 'Music and Silence' years ago and can't remember much apart from having liked it. Must re-read it.
What else would you recommend by Rose Tremain?

zippy there was a lady on the train opposite me on Friday reading this book - i wondered if it might be you? lol

zippitippitoes Mon 14-Jul-08 23:51:19

lol friday i was at home

i bopught it a t marylebone on monday

i havent read any of her other books

yes i did get into levs world

i wasnt sure whether she is writing the whole thing in levs voice

i thought she flowed a lot better from the second half

did you not feel annoyed with him when he grabbed sophies throat at the show

but also annoyed with her

the way he kind of developed workj wise was a bit unbelievable

bu8t im not sure is this chick lit

it seemed a bit like it to me but then i dont really read chick lit

it was definitel;y a good read tho

my town is full of polish people tho and i really dont imagine them like this
