After her best finnigah Eloise dies from breast cancer, Cathy is devastated. Judy Finnigan has found a great way to make me believe in ghosts: The fact that I found certain things about it so ridiculous they were funny actually added to my enjoyment, if anything – laughing at it made the reading experience more entertaining.

Not a book to recommend to my friends. Weak storyline badly written – sorry folks, sorry Judy Finniigan – stick to the day job! The Sweetness of Forgetting. You are currently logged out.

Book review: Eloise by Judy Finnegan

Or is Cathy, unable to deal with her grief,slipping back into the clutches of mental illness? A real smiler of a book – Nina Pottell, Prima. I also got the whole Rebecca and Wuthering heights theme but I felt it was overdone and the main characters began to bug me so I didnt really care by the end of it, I was relieved it was finished, I was I really wanted to like this book because I have always enjoyed listening to the author on television but I just found it very repetitive.


My mum also had attempted reading this book and didn’t like it. Endless paragraphs describing various places in Cornwall that actually had no relevance to the plot got kind of tedious after a while. I love my dog. If she wasn’t a ‘celebrity’ this would never have got published. This was such a disappointing book.

Someone should have told Judy that simpering women went out with hoop skirts. Finnlgan book was depressive but didn’t deliver on the heartening, elevating feeling afterwards, or if it did, I didn’t read as far as that. Poorly written, weak unbelievable characters, boring from start to finish. As the novel progresses, the narrative becomes repetitive dealing with the same issues over and over again.

Time remaining — day s — hour s — minute s — second s. Unearthed with someone’s long-buried inheritance, the victim seems to belong to the distant past – until new evidence suggests otherwise, and Karen is called in to unravel a case where nothing is as it seems.

Lead character Cathy is insane, her heart constantly flooding with love for her daughter, her husbands kiss dripping water into her mouth like a dried up plant.


A long, long kiss.

And Then She Was Gone. But then Cathy begins to have disturbing dreams that imply Eloise’s death was not all it seems. The basic premise of the story is that middle aged, painfully middle classed and slightly unbalanced Cathy has lost her best friend, the Eloise of the title, to breast cancer. Boring most of the way through. At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer’s personal information.

It’s all very twee and not all that fitting to a story where she was presumably trying to create a dark sense of threat and foreboding. It is a tale of grief, loss, anger and resentment, all masquerading as a ghost story. October 61: In fact, Aiden isn’t exactly human – he’s a very complicated artificial intelligence.
