It hurts me to say that I couldn't get into this book. I like Keith's writing. I like all of the characters. The plot, in theory, was good. But I couldn't get into this book at all. I slogged through it, but by the end I was skipping paragraphs and o...more

Outstanding and, so far, my favourite Milan book. This is a book about sisters, about doing the right thing even when it costs you, and standing up for what you want.

Loved it. I read it one sitting.

I realize that some reviewers didn't like this book because it was too reflective of the time period. Whereas, I loved it because it was reflective. The heroine chaffs against her the confines of being a woman in a ma...more

I didn't like this book the first time I read it. But, years later, I really find it rather hilarious and crazy. It's way out there...the universe-destroying bomb used in a game of cricket is definitely out there.

Martin Freeman does a stellar job narrating this book. He will forever be Arthur Dent in my mind.

I'm 99.45% sure I've read this book before, and yet I don't remember a thing about the second half of the book - after the restaurant. It's possible that...more

It's been a long time since I've gone through the series, and I don't think I've ever actually read it in order. So re-reading after a long time.

I listened to the audiobook by Stephen Fry. It's really good. Though, I do find the jokes and comedy stop...more
