If you already know a lot about money its a good read thats fun and explores things you may not have thought of. We can always learn more no matter what stage of finances were at and keeping an open mind will help us grow financially and as people even more. We have read many finance books countless blogs and websites this book was by far one our favourite to read. Any Australian could follow his steps and become quite wealthy whether youre 60 or 20.httpsdividendsdownunder.com20161224review-barefoot-investor

There were parts of the book particularly around the middle section that felt as if the author lost a little focus and events stood still for a while the story not really moving forward. But then the pace picked up in the last third of the book particularly once the court hearing began and the tension built hard and fast and one or two surprises were in store. I would definitely recommend this book for thriller fans who enjoy reading something a little dark and different.httpsklslaterauthor.com20161231review-good-bad-ali-land

Author Erica Ferenciks storytelling shows the wobbles of a newer novelist and her prose sometimes feels like a blunt instrument. When the bad guys arrive you can almost hear the Deliverance banjos. But its brutally effective toohurtling Rivers harrowing narrative along in a visceral white-knuckle rush. httpew.combooks20170110river-night-erica-ferencik-ew-review

The photograph must be later as the Bank of NSW was not built until 1903. More like 1908.

Readers get a two-for-one with this novel and Horowitz delivers on both counts. I drifted away a little halfway through the book as we moved from the inner book to the outer book and again near the end when the reverse occurred but Horowitz is a talented writer and certainly a little under-appreciated here in Australia anyway.httpwww.debbish.combooks-literaturemagpie-murders-by-anthony-horowitz

All in all A Useful Woman is an enjoyable easy read and one Id certainly recommend to fans of historical mysteries. The authors research into the period has obviously been extensive Rosalind Thorne is a unique and relatable heroine and Ill definitely be on the lookout for the next book in the series.httpallaboutromance.combook-reviewa-useful-woman-3-may-b

Cleverly weaves the history of the period through the personal lives of her characters leaving readers feeling as if they are there. She also has the ability in her presentation of the events to echo our current history and political situations. The intrigue is heart-stopping as the complications of the plot leave the reader suspecting first one then another of the people involved in this political and personal mystery.httpswww.rtbookreviews.combook-reviewdianas-altar
