Petal Eggs Its only from the detail of a less than 5* review you learn what a book is really like. I enjoyed your review and will not be ordering the book.

Carol Good choice, Petra, and thanks for your kind comments. If you have lots of free time and would be inclined to read it, I would. However, borrow it from the library instead of buying it as I did.

Petal Eggs I have a bookshop Carol. I NEVER go to libraries. Lol (well only for research books).

Carol LOL!!! I guess NOT! I just hated to see this guy get any remuneration for his trash talk and NOT because I oppose buying books from a bookstore! LOL
It appears your only investment is time, which is the most precious commodity of all, so I'm glad you are not going to waste it on this book! Did you read any other reviews on it? I'm curious if it is as bad as I think or I'm must menopausal (or both!) Thanks so much for your comments, Petra.

Petal Eggs A lot of people liked it somewhat, some liked it a lot even.

Carol hmmmm...interesting. Maybe I'm over-critical. If you do ever read it, I'd love to know what you think.
