Le recensioni dei clienti, comprese le valutazioni a stelle dei prodotti, aiutano i clienti ad avere maggiori informazioni sul prodotto e a decidere se è il prodotto giusto per loro.
Per calcolare la valutazione complessiva e la ripartizione percentuale per stella, non usiamo una media semplice. Piuttosto, il nostro sistema considera cose come quanto è recente una recensione e se il recensore ha acquistato l'articolo su Amazon. Ha inoltre analizzato le recensioni per verificarne l'affidabilità.
Instead of ending up in bed, the protagonists engage in lots & lots of "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" -- to a nauseating, cloying degree. They already have a mutual admiration society of two, & are nonetheless constantly finding new things to admire.
Cardboard characters in situations thoroughly explored by MUCH better writers. Instead of wasting money on this turkey, get some P.G.Wodehouse.
The plot is obvious but the most annoying thing is the writing style. I stopped reading the Cherringham series for this reason - every character speaks in the same vernacular. They drop pronouns, modifiers, conjunctions, and prepositions in EVERY sentence. They even think this way - only in italics, in case we didn't catch on it was a thought (another annoying grammatical overuse). Using this style to delineate a specific character makes sense - a blustery detective, for example. But every character speaking this way - Americans and Brits? It sounds weird and it's so glaring that it starts overrides the story. I admit, it's worse in Cherringham.
Better just read it. What? No reason to be annoyed. Wait. Must be everyone speaks this way. hhhhmmm. Like 2 peas in a pod. Candy from a baby. Easy to spot. Just spoke to them. Means they went to the same school? hhhmmm. Silly sentence structure So hard to follow. Not like the plot. Had my fill. BYE! :)
The premise is good. The concept of the dual authorship and contrast of US/UK values and ideals is good. The execution is sadly lacking though: the main characters are, at best, two dimensional and the remaining cast are just names. Our hero is the archetypal English aristocrat, practically perfect in every way, indulgently cooing at his equally cliched American wife (feisty, brash, reckless etc - you get the picture). The whodunnit is laughingly simple to work out in the very early stages. All in all, a pleasant enough read on a rainy afternoon but I won't be spending time or money on any more in the series.
I really liked the blurb which went with this book.
I read this on my kindle and the beginning page of every chapter was missing. You couldn't follow the plot clearly as too much information was missing. Possibly if I had complete chapters I would have liked the book.
I am struggling to understand the appeal of this simplistic short story by the other folks offering a review. The obvious plot and caricature characters make this hard to get into and hard to believe. The overuse of the sound ‘hmmm?‘ is so distracting, I found myself stopping reading just to wonder why they authors felt this was useful. Who says this? Who says this repeatedly? This is a shallow plot, and the book is so short that the story doesn’t really begin before it’s over.
Twenties mysteries are popular right now with numerous series currently running. This is not a very good one. At just over one hundred and twenty pages in the Kindle version this is not a book, but a novella. It suffers from all the weaknesses of that form. Little back ground and a very thin plot. The idea of a British and American team of ex-spies solving mysteries is interesting, but more time needs to be taken filling in the blanks.
I can see having one character who speaks in partial sentences, without a subject (like "Forgot you don't quite speak the lingo yet. Means 'large'.") But in this book all the characters skip their subjects all the time. Also, way too many italics. Trust the reader to know which words in a sentence are more important. And then if you're going to italicize all their thoughts, you don't also need to say "she thought to herself". Again it's a matter of trusting the reader.
I like the setting and the characters in this new series. But why, oh why, do you KEEP writing “hmmm” ?!? People do not use this phrase regularly and you use it so much, multiple times in a chapter...every chapter, in all your books. I was very disappointed to run into the “hmmm” so much in this new series. Please, editor or coauthor, don’t allow the hmmming to continue. You are ruining the stories.
I loved every Cherringham mystery--and on audible, listened to each of them several times. This is the first Mydworth mystery I read, and I was disappointed in the superficial writing, which may be result of not having lived and experienced that time in history. The rich details which give it depth, in my opinion, are missing. Seems very predictable.
