Book Club comments about 'Ride the Wings of Morning'
'I loved it. It made me laugh. I now know Sophie's family are totally dotty. I enjoyed it.'
'I absolutely loved it.'
'It's terribly important that it is true story.'
'Much more facinating.'
'It's too acute for it to be made up.'
One reader said she sees 'a miniscule part of life that so funny...'
'I don't know one end of a Springbok from another but I love the illustrations.'
'I think it's fantastic; a great book to have by the bed. I kept dipping in.'
'I've spent a lot of time in Africa. I find the letter format a bit disruptive for a long read but it was good fun to dig in and out of. I think the family are hysterical. It's fascinating.'
'It has certainly whetted my appetite for travel.'
'There's an endless demand for animal stories.'
'Tamzin (Sophie's sister) writes very well - it reads well.'
'I don't do letters. They don't keep me awake. Because I have arthritis in my hands I found the paperback too long and too heavy physically - it is very heavy. Literally too heavy weight-wise for holiday reading. I didn't like the double spacing, but I thought the drawings were lovely - what a way to live.'
'The letter format would make it a good train book, perhaps best on Kindle.'
'This book made me feel I wanted to go on an adventure and I liked reading about the Army wife. It's a book you can pick up and put down but I prefered Funnily Enough.'
It was agreed that whilst ride the Wings of Morning stretches the reader into new dimensions on a physical level, Funnily Enough stretches one spiritually.
'I've enjoyed it more than Sophie Neville's first book.'
'My mother loved the first book ~ Funnily Enough. She's quite particular, very particular about what she'll read, and she was really thrilled with it.'
