Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 2/12/2014

    " This was an odd read. The premise is that Errol Flynn, after building a house for himself in Jamaica, gets involved with a very young wman who ends up having his child - a daughter named May. May grows to adulthood on the island at the same time that Jamaica itself is going through political turmoil - some kind of parallel there, I guess. The book is so stuffed with characters and events - some more interesting than others - that ultimately, the Flynn connection was the least meaningful thing about it. "

    " A fictunal book based on the philandering of Errol Flynn. It was good and is set in Jamaca. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Cutts | 1/20/2014

    " Very informative. I learned a lot about the history of Jamaica and a culture I knew nothing about prior to reading this book. I was also fascinated by the story line connecting with Errol Flynn. Very eye opening and emotional. Loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/17/2014

    " Ok. Not horribly entertaining, but not too terribly bad. Not a struggle to get through, although it did feel a bit drawn out. Interesting to see how the mother daughter relationship evolved and changed to how they related to each other as women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devilyn (Emily) | 1/13/2014

    " I thought this book was good. There were times were i found the jamacian dialect hard to understand even though it was only written. And also occansionally i wanted to pick some of the characters up, shake them and shout "what are you doing! think about this!" but apart from that it was great :) A really good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Swapp | 1/5/2014

    " I was fascinated by the historical aspects of this book. I knew very little about Jamaica, and likely still know very little, but was interested in the cultural racial makeup of Jamaica, as well as the division along socio-economic lines, and the effect it has on people's opportunities. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yvette | 1/2/2014

    " Different from what I normally would read, but very enlightening when it comes to the struggles of Jamaican culture, politics and class "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie Duncan | 11/10/2013

    " You will fall in love with this book so quickly, i only wish i had read it before going to jamaica, as the need to see this place was huge when reading it. Love the Film star glamour element with a history lesson included, page turner and fun to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jackie | 10/25/2013

    " Not my cup of tea, got bogged down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 10/25/2013

    " It seems a bit unimaginative to describe a book as boring but that's exactly what this was. I finished it less than a week ago and can't remember that much about it. An awful lot happened in the last 100-so pages but I'd kind of lost interest by then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie M. | 2/10/2013

    " I wasn't particularly seized by the writing or the characters but it's an intriguing story - the made-up life of Errol Flynn's imaginary biracial illegitimate daughter based on his actual exploits in Jamaica during the peak and twilight of his fame. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frmaselli | 4/22/2012

    " This is the story of Errol Flynn's adventures in Jamaica and of the daughter he fathered but never claimed. I never really cared about the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree | 1/15/2012

    " well-written and engrossing historical fiction set in jamaica during the unrest and violence of the '70s (with flashbacks as well, to the main character's mother's childhood). really enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 12/30/2011

    " I liked this book about Errol Flynn. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Graham Whatley | 11/20/2011

    " An easy read, but not particularly inspiring. Historic events are the backdrop for what occasionally feels like a Mills & Boon with added Jamaican patois! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Moseley | 10/9/2011

    " A look at like for the poor daughter of Eral Flynn on Jamaica. I adventure of discovery, but not very believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsty Smith | 9/8/2011

    " Didn't get into this book straight away, but after first couple of chapters was hooked. Loved the Jamaican dialect, description of the land, relationships and the political unrest. Good all round book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gail | 4/24/2011

    " Surprisingly interesting fictional tale that takes place in Jamaica. Errol Flynn was a cad that's for sure.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucie Hayward | 3/19/2011

    " This book was excellent. It's somewhat based on fact - Errol Flynn spent the later years of his life in Jamaica - but it's a fictionalized account of that time. This is probably one of my favorite books this year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/14/2011

    " This was an entertaining read - for me, more like a summer book, nothing too heady, just fun. I loved getting a sense of the dialect and some of the political strife faced by the islanders in the 60's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 10/30/2010

    " Very good book. I will read everything she writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree | 8/27/2010

    " well-written and engrossing historical fiction set in jamaica during the unrest and violence of the '70s (with flashbacks as well, to the main character's mother's childhood). really enjoyed it! "
