Light Shining In The Forest (2013)
language
English
3.65 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I knew I couldn't expect a happy ending from Paul Torday it never was how he seemed to work. I guess like life, in a lot of ways his endings are more realistic and give you food for thought. I largely enjoyed this book - I like to read stories that explain at least partially why ...

review 1: So I went into this book not knowing what it was about and I went out of this book still unsure of what I just read.The story is narrated by two narrators, Elizabeth and Michael, who lead a rather cold marriage. Nothing exciting happens, Elizabeth keeps going on about how she got...

review 1: Ed Hartlepool has never worked, nor has his father, or his father's father. There was never any need; there was always money... and plenty of it.But annoying letters begin arriving at Ed's house in the south of France. Letters from accountants, and lawyers, and the bank. Letters ...
The Irresistible Inheritance Of Wilberforce (2008)
language
English

review 1: An interesting odd and strange book. But a fascinating book as well. It starts at the end and goes towards the beginning. Once you realise it you know there won't be a happy ending. You know the end already. This makes you curious about how it came to the end. My history with Pau...

review 1: I finsihed this last week but have been too busy to come on and make a review! I didn't enjoy this as much as say The Girl on the Landing - which was brilliant in my opinion!A little too much about the financial industry for my liking and not a lot of character development. the ...
More Than You Can Say (2011)
language
English
3.38 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The writing of this novel was beautiful, everything described in a off-hand sort of way, completely regardless of the depth it withholds.'More than you can say' is a story of life after military service, of love, of crime, of wrongs and misdirection. It is the story of a man who ...

review 1: I received a copy of this book free from the Good-Reads First-Reads program. "The best estimate we have shows that every five minutes a child goes missing in the UK." ..Mike Sullivan, Crime Editor The Sun, 11 October 2007. This is the premise of the story and essentially what the...
La ragazza del ritratto (2009)
language
English
3.53 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I hadn't read any of Paul Torday's books before this one, but I did see the movie 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen', so I thought I had some idea of his style or at least genre. I was wrong. For the first couple of chapters I was still trying to work out where this was going, then be...
Il destino di Hartlepool Hall (2012)
language
English
3.27 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I was keen to read this as Ed Hartlepool is a subsidiary character in another book by Paul Torday, which I loved, and I wanted to find out more about about him. If I hadn't read 'The Irresistable Inheritance of Wilberforce and bought into that whole world I think I would have be...

review 1: A novel in four vintages, going backwards from 2006 to 2002, each year describes Francis Wilberforce’s gradual change from work-aholic software developer to wine connoisseur. As he discovers friends and a wife in the ‘upper crust’ he abandons his business and frugal, abstemious l...

English

review 1: After the first few chapters I was ready to put the book aside. I felt that the story was really dreary and sad, and I did not like the main characters at all.For some reason i continued anyway. And after the second cut in the story the tone went from sad to increasingly lighthea...
The Hopeless Life of Charlie Summers. Paul Torday (2010)
language
English
3.49 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Clever stuff. Reads like a dream. This combines complexity with simplicity and farce with gritty reality. Almost impossible to describe. Charlie Summers is a magnificent invention who occupies the pages in a way that no other character I've ever read has. Charlie appears througho...
Ventovieras (2009)
language
English
3.53 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Ooo, this book is creepy. It's starts out as merely odd, and I thought it might even be supernatural, but things get progressively more sinister until they become out and out terrifying and it becomes clear that this isn't a man with unusual powers, but a man with severe and dang...
