Well that was depressing ! If you love dystopian fiction it‘ll be a winner if not you‘ll hate it . Short novella which can be read in a day . It is very well written but still think I‘m being generous giving it a so so

This extraordinary stunning story thoroughly researched mix of fact and historical fiction will be one of my favourite reads of the year. Astutely portrayed characters full of emotional depth & complexities, dripping with inequalities class diversions repugnant social norms expectations & attitudes to women & homosexuals deeply embedded unacceptable racism. But don‘t be put off it‘s a vivid lush portrait of Malaya & a melting pot of characters.

What a beautiful book this is , chapter just made me chuckle as Anna sits with her elderly mother in-law her deceased husband‘s former lover arrives , she describes the back biting snarky comments passing affectionally between them &chapter ends with “we Drank more tea and ate soft biscuits which smelt of dusty cupboards “ Reminds me of eating soft rich tea biscuits with my gran & elderly great aunts . Written in 1975 it‘s so astonishingly modern

Sometimes it‘s not the book it‘s you the reader and where you are , this started well pacey page turner but I just felt like the last 150 pages was like walking through mud , not enough action and not enough tension or chemistry between elspeth and ravyn a decent fantasy but doesn‘t interest me enough to buy the 2nd in the series . Sorry about that , I will pick it up in my local library if they get it

Enjoyable easy escapist romance ❤️‍🔥 no 2 In the series and not as good as the first , mostly listened on audio which had dual narrators male and female which I enjoy rather than one actor putting on fake voices which can ruin a good book .

@staci.reads has already reviewed this book 📖 perfectly . I enjoyed it but didn‘t love it , I felt it lacked real depth & I didn‘t really engage or feel to deeply about the characters. Instead the plot just skipped from one tragic breakdown to another . It almost felt like you never really got to know any of the characters. Shame as it‘s such a worth while topic to write about and bring attention to

41/2 stars 🌟 from me the last missing half a star to make it a whopper of a 5 is A. I‘m being far more selective this year with my 5s, yes it‘s the first romatasy Iv really enjoyed since the ACOTAR series, however the last 150 pages just too too long it took forever to get there and no where near enough spice 🌶️so here‘s hoping book 2 picks up the pace or I won‘t be continuing ; our time is precious we can only read so much !

Breanne1 I had high 🌶️ hopes for this one….sigh 2mo
Kimberlone I read this last month and have already completely forgotten what happens…I was very meh on it and decided not to continue with the series. For something that was advertised in the ACOTAR realm, you‘re right - not very spicy (at least for what I was expecting) 2mo
Bookbuyingaddict @Breanne1 @Kimberlone so many are touted as the next acotar aren‘t they 😩and these hardbacks aren‘t cheap ! I‘m going to ask my library to order in the second in the series for me . I did enjoy it a lot more than blood and ash I haven‘t done throne of glass or crescent city series yet have you both ? Happy 😃 weekend x x x 2mo
Kimberlone @Karons1 honestly, I‘ve realized the Maas-verse isn‘t really for me. I read the first two ACOTAR, the first ~3 TOG, and I couldn‘t even finish the first Crescent City. I keep trying each series but don‘t get far before losing interest 🤷🏽‍♀️ 2mo

This is the second time Iv picked this one up and tried and failed 😣 to engage , it‘s not for me I‘m afraid, I thought the island of sea women was a far superior story and far more informative about Korean history and far more engaging , I made it to chapter 7 this time but now know it‘s off to the charity shop !

My advice if you go in summer ;take lots of water 💦 to drink as once you in the ancient city (which is huge) there are no shops ! It‘s stunning how well preserved it is. Warning ⚠️ modern Pompeii isn‘t great , it‘s easy to catch the train 🚆 there from sorrento also wonderful. Trains are abit run down but cheap. You will need the whole day or 2/3 days to see it all ☺️ (edited) 2mo

Wow! Didn‘t work on audio for me but reading it blew me away. what a wonderful sweeping saga . It also helps that Iv been to Pompeii 4 times and have visited the brothel seen the stone beds and the murals and the house with the faun fountain (still in tact ) an amazing story really doing justice to what our sisters had to endure 😣and to the legend of Pompeii if you‘ve never been you really must put it on your bucket list it is Atlantis.fantastic
