So Much Life Left Over: A Novel | Louis de Bernieres

A very easy read and sometimes that‘s what we need ! A good but not unique story with plenty of interesting characters to keep you turning the pages - I enjoyed it ! But it hasn‘t left a void in my life !

A 1869 court room drama of sorts - it‘s a compelling read , cleverly written , the real details of the case being exposed as the story progressed - I found myself racing through it - an unusual read for me but one I enjoyed hugely !

Cathythoughts Nice review 👍🏻 I really enjoyed this one too. 6d
JillR Same as @cathythoughts I enjoyed this, despite not being sure I would! 5d
emmasm08 @JillR it‘s good to try something outside of our comfort zone every now and again ! 5d

A couple of pages in I realised I‘d read it before ! And also how good it is . A dysfunctional family and a beautiful stranger who exposes them and turns them up side down ! There was an undercurrent of justice in there somewhere . A great compulsive read .

Cathythoughts I havnt read this one by her, stacked 👍🏻❤️ 2w

The book is well written , sold as a love story with a musical background . I often enjoy books even when I don‘t warm to the characters, but this was an exception- the main male character was incredibly annoying and tedious . I don‘t give up on books so I read it to the end but I‘m so glad I‘ve finished it !!!! But we are all different the critics at the time described as a masterpiece !!!!

Cathythoughts Nice review 👍🏻❤️ 2w

I normally steer well away from books described as ‘comic‘ but the story line pulled me in - it‘s a great book - more life than deliberately comic . The main character Kate , is inspiring- I loved her - it‘s a good read

Cathythoughts Great review. I‘m stacking ❤️ 4w
emmasm08 Hope it lives up to its review ! The only slight irritation is the Graham murder ! but its a minor irritation 😂x 4w
