Cider Lane Reviews

A few recent reviews for Cider Lane :Of Silences and Stars from , as once in a while it's nice to blow one own trumpet.

5.0 out of 5 starsI thoroughly enjoyed this incredibly compelling book
ByMark Adams
Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this incredibly compelling book, and it gripped me from beginning to end.

The author's ability to give you insights into the character's way of thinking and the damage they have endured to their mental health through their lives is something very rare: believable. The empathy that the two richly fleshed out main protagonists evoke makes the book an absolute page turner!

4.0 out of 5 starsHide From Your Friends!
ByJon Padgett
Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
I took this book to read on holiday. Unfortunately it got nabbed by a friend who spent his time reading it instead. Now I've got it back, I'm enjoying the start and the rest of the book was obviously good enough for my friend to deprive me the pleasure of reading it on holiday.

4.0 out of 5 starsThe writer holds the reader's attention on two central characters ...
Format: Kindle Edition
The writer holds the reader's attention on two central characters as their story unfolds and their paths inevitably cross. Really it is the depth of Susanna and Colin that are the basis of the book and the reader enters their troubled lives and learns about their tortured pasts. The story itself is minimal and I didn't realise that a writer could hold my attention for so long revolving around tin openers, camp fires, erotic tension and the preoccupations of troubled souls. An absorbing, if somewhat melancholy, read.

5.0 out of 5 starsA good story and at times thought provoking

Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
This is an interesting book. A good story and at times thought provoking, the characterisation is well done and the story well told. It is difficult to believe that this is a book from a first time writer.
