Waste of a credit

This book is a waste of a credit - it contains nothing that isn't explained much better else where.

Sad - Wonderful - True !

What more can I say - just read the book - I am here on a close Tuesday morning in England with tears running down my face as I listen to this incredible book. My tears are also for the two boys who had a horrible. Child hood and the hope that everyone who has suffered in this way comes to the same peace - it is. NEVER the fault of the child !!!
I am so glad that this story has a great conclusion many who have suffered the same do not. It to Alan Cumming credit that he share how to thrive after surviving get help and share with loved ones.........A honour to have read this book - Thank you.

Don't bother!

Would you try another book written by Helen Fielding or narrated by Samantha Bond?

No. I hated this book.

What was most disappointing about Helen Fielding’s story?

There was no story! Just totally predictable Bridget's search for another man, Mark having died.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

None.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Regret for spending my money on this rubbish!

Any additional comments?

If you're thinking of buying the new book about Bridget Jones don't bother get out your old ones! They were of there time - funny and new. Not so this resurrection of Bridget - I wonder what prompted this book? Ill thought out and just plain rubbish - save your money!

Weight loss surgery not that quick fix

I loved this book. It tells all about how being fat feels and how weight loss surgery seems to be the answer. It gives a true prospective on how you feel and what happens to your body afterwards. The fixes you need for loose skin that are not fixes that leave you with scars which need as much hiding as the fat did and the worse thing is you can still put weight on!

This could be my story and many other weight loss surgery patients - well written with a voice of honesty and a sense of fun. A must read. Thank you!

Excellent informative listen .

This book is about one man comming to terms with the loss of significant family members (this family happens to be Lord Mountbatten's) it is told by his twin grandson who survived the bombing and explores the loss and affects of those loses (one of whom is his twin brother) on himself and the undercurrents and politics that surround the incident . I listened to this book from beginning to end in one sitting! Excellent would highly recommend.
