    One thought on “Donna alla finestra

    1. Deborah

      This book was a pleasant surprise. It took a while for me to get into it, but I am glad I persisted. I needed the context to get an idea of the characters and their history, for the subsequent events to make sense. More than a great side read.One feels like this is an autobiography of a surburban family's life. The vengeful, spiteful, jealous relative, who feels a sense of entitlement. The difficult teenager and rather supportive friend.It brings to mind thst one never really knows what goes on [...]

      This is the second Catherine Dunne that I have read just lately, the other being Something Like Love. This is a much darker read, a psychological family drama that is really quite chilling.The Grahams are just a normal family like any other, nothing out of the ordinary about them at all although what I did find to be a refreshing change is the portrayal of the son Ciaran who, unlike in a lot of family dramas, is not a perfect angel. He is a teenager who could be best described as a "rebel withou [...]

      I really liked this book, the plot was awesome. I got lost in the novel at first as it was so hard to keep up with where it was going but at the end, it all came together well and I understood what happened in the overall book. By the end of the novel I couldn't believe what had happened as the story line was that great and that intense. It's a novel I didn't want to put down but wanted to continue reading. The plot was not something I had come across in other books which I liked as it made it q [...]

      Finished this book before now but forgot to write the review so have kinda forgot most of it now, it really wasn't that memorable. It had a good story to it with okay characters but it was just a bit slow and unnecessarily prolonged. It tried to hold the pretence of wondering who wise boy and the watcher were but there really was no doubt at who wide boy was and it really didn't matter who the watcher was as he really had no connection with the story as a whole.The ending was disappointing and a [...]

      Exciting book with anticipation. I figured out what was happening earlier in the book but it did not retract from its excitement. The book does not bring any friends of Lynda to the fore, so you feel her isolation and desperation for others to see what she’s slowly figuring out. I did however feel that the end fell a bit ‘flat’. It was almost as if the author wanted to rush the ending, perhaps others feel differently. Nevertheless, an enjoyable read.

    6. Fede

      Set in stone was a nice reading.It is not a masterpiece, no point in denying it.I did not feel much empathy for the characters, as I honestly found them unpleasant or suspicious or both: Lynda was always whining too much for my taste (even though, thinking about it, maybe I simply couldn't stand her, so I am maybe a little exaggerating her actions), Robert couldn't trust or care less about what Lynda said or about Ciarán, Ciarán himself acted like a 14 years old boy though being 19, Danny is j [...]

      Lynda e Robert Graham possono dirsi soddisfatti della vita che si sono costruiti. Una bella casa in un quartiere benestante di Dublino, la sicurezza economica, due figli invidiabili, Katie e Ciaràn. Nonostante qualche nuvola passeggera e qualche preoccupazione legata al comportamento un po' aggressivo del figlio adolescente, i Graham vedono scorrere la loro esistenza placidamente, riflessa nel giardino giapponese che ogni mattina all'alba Lynda si ferma qualche attimo a contemplare con l'orgogl [...]

      Jon, Ciaràn’s friend from university, has moved in with the Graham family. He doesn’t have a place to stay now that his parents have separated and he seems to be a good influence on Ciaràn, who is a typical teenager and doesn’t always get along with his parents. This family brings dysfunctional to a whole new level. Danny, the uncle, is writing letters to Robert, his brother, telling him that he wants his due. Danny stole thirty thousand dollars and Robert’s credit cards last time he s [...]

    9. Poem Fanatic

      "I recently finished reading "Set in Stone" by Catherine Dunne. Although some parts of the plot were predictable, I really enjoyed this story. The story revolves around an Irish family. Lynda is a Mosaic artist who works from the house, while her husband Robert is a Developer. Their daughter Katie studies at a university away from home, and their son Ciaran lives at home but goes to a college nearby. The family has had a horrible past- linked only to Robert's brother Danny."If you want a full re [...]

      Romanzo interessante dai tratti forti, ambientato in una Dublino che risente della crisi e dei suoi passati terroristici. Regge benissimo la suspance e il ritmo narrativo ti inchioda ad ogni pagina. Non si perde mai nel disseminare dettaglo che poi si ricollocano magicamente alla fine.Sembra concludersi anche se in realtà non ci sono nè vincitori nè sconfitti.Scrittura scorrevole e dinamica.Di lei leggerò sicuramente altro!

    11. Lee

      I thought this book was really good and kept me interested the further in I went. I didn't particularly like how it switched between time periods without alerting the reader to the fact, which led to some flicking back and starting the section again. The story itself was engaging and threw in a number of shocks. Didn't think many of the motives behind the actions were explained well enough.

    12. Paula

      This is the first book I have read by this author. I did enjoy the book. I liked the way a particular situation was looked at from one individual's side & then immediately followed by a different characterif that makes sense? I thought it became a little unrealistic towards the end. Also I didn't actually relate/bond with any of the characters. They didn't seem to have much depth.

    13. Francesca Lorenzini

      La vicenda è del tutto umana: qualcosa di simile potrebbe essere successa in una famiglia a voi vicina, ma, nonostante l'apparente banalità, il racconto avvince presto e la tensione si mantiene fino alle ultime pagine.

    14. Karen Lowe

      I enjoyed the build-up of menace in the book, though ultimately I didn't feel engaged with the characters as they are somewhat lacking in any real depth. The ending rather fizzled out too, I thought, but none the less it was overall an entertaining read.

    15. Siobhain Cunnane

      The cover belies the sinister atmosphere of this book; there is a darkness creeping up on this seemingly typical family which is quite gripping. Disappointing at the end, I felt, compared to the excellent build up, hence the rating. I would definitely read more from this author.

    16. Megan Taylor

      My first Catherine Dunne book and I have to say I enjoyed it - it was a page turner. Slightly dissappointed with the ending - ended a little weak I thought but it certainly wouldn't stop me from recommending it to others to read. Will be reading more Catherine Dunne books for sure.

    17. Rachel

      3.5 Stars.A quick easy to read thriller full of twists and turns. I enjoyed Set in Stone and will happily read another book by Catherine Dunne, I found her writing to be descriptive and flowing.

    18. Kellie Mackrell

      Couldn't get into it, goes into the never to be finished pile and moving onto to something that captures my interest sooner

    19. Ruth

      I really enjoyed this book, the first I have read by Catherine Dunne. It was a good psychological thriller with a growing sense of menace. I'll definitely be reading more by this author.

    20. Ysabel

      I just didn't care about the characters. I got halfway and just decided life was too short and so gave up and went to read something else.
