This story is raw and violent, but the protagonist is fascinating and her strength and resolve were admirable. At first I was tempted to stop reading it, but so much happened so quickly and kept happening that it was hard to put down.

I love Dick Francis books and this one was one of the best that I think I've read. A lot of people say to me, "Oh, he writes about horses, doesn't he?", as though it were not a subject they find interesting. Believe me, it doesn't matter whether you're interested in horses or not. I'm not really interested in horses at all. However, all of his books that I've read involve horse racing in some way, although sometimes it is only a small connection. His characters are very real and he makes you care about what happens to them, and there is always a great deal of suspense in his stories, and they're all hard to put down.

This was a great story. This is the second book I've read by this author, and the first one prompted me to read this one. I wasn't disappointed and was sad to see it end.

This story was okay, but not nearly as good in my opinion as his series about Precious Ramwotse, although it did get more interesting as it progressed. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and very few of any worth. That's my opinion, anyway.

This story about Marie Antionette is beautifully written and offers an interesting insight into the life of a young queen.

The Accidental Tourist kept me captivated from beginning to end. I love the way the author describes each character, their thoughts and differences and quirks, which there are plenty of. Plus it has a very satisfactory ending.

I was worried that this sequel to ME BEFORE YOU might not be as good, but it was every bit as good. Jojo Moyes has a talent for describing characters and events in a way that is entertaining and makes you want to read the next word and the word after that, ad infinitum.

This falls into the category of one of the better books that I've read, and I've been reading at least one book constantly for the last 57 years.

This was a sweet little story, about a boy who is pure of heart who finds his way through life in order to reach his destiny. Very enjoyable reading.

This was a story unlike any I've ever read. The "hero" of the story is not necessarily a likeable person, yet I was compelled to keep reading this intriguing account of the life of a man obsessed with a woman who didn't love him.

I thought the author spent too much time describing things that are just fillers, like brushing his teeth before going to bed etc.

I didn't care for the way it was written -- in present tense -- so stopped reading it. I like books that related a story that has already happened.

I became intersted in the Aurelio Zen series when I saw it on Masterpiece Mystery. I liked this character and decided to read some of the books about him. This was as enjoyable as the TV series.

An interesting satire on the way people are controlled by governments and others who want power, with human traits exhibited by animals.

I enjoyed every minute of this book. The characters are wonderfully described, so that I felt I knew each one of them personally. It is definitely a bittersweet tale, but one that was hard for me to put down.

When I first started reading this book, I was a little bit skeptical about whether I would like it or not, but it soon began to grow on me, as I became more familiar with the characters. Well before the end, I began to love it, and now I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

The story of Harley Altmyer was gripping and hard to put down. Told from his 19 year old viewpoint, I experienced what he was going through as he tried to support and care for his three younger sisters.

Good story. I enjoyed it.

This was a fascinating book. I found it unique and refreshing in its method of exploring characters other than those I expected and I was never bored.
