    PDF/EPUB Rosie Thomas Ï Iris and Ruby MOBI µ Iris and Epub / Ï iris ebok, ruby pdf, Iris and book, Iris and Ruby MOBIThis book was on my shelf for a long time but since it looked like the perfect summer read I finally picked it up prior to going on vacationIt is the story of a teenage girl Ruby who runs away from home to reside in Cairo with her grandmother Iris Ruby hasn't seen her grandmother in years and upon learning that her grandmother's recollection of her one true love and the years in Cairo during WW2 are slowing slipping away Ruby resolves to help her recall and reach for those memoriesLike so many plain cups on the shelves You can reach for them use them without thinking Most of them don't matter Sometimes you lose your grip on one of them and it falls and smashes to pieces and you shrug and say to yourself what a pity Then you reach for the cup that you use every day one that you love and use so often that as you stretch out your hand it is already making the shape that f

    PDF/EPUB Rosie Thomas Ï Iris and Ruby MOBI µ Iris and Epub / Ï iris ebok, ruby pdf, Iris and book, Iris and Ruby MOBII wasn't sure what to expect with Rosie Thomas' work; I was hoping something akin to Kate Morton but it appeared far fluffy and drawn out than Morton's often careful and well built plots Whilst the storyline sounded okay it was Egypt which really drew me in when deciding whether to buy this in a charity shop and I did feel as though Thomas did a good job at building Cairo for the reader The characters however are markedly flat and their dialogue is both stilted and unnatural I did not care at all about the characters or what Thomas held in store for them and gave up around sixty pages in Not for me

    PDF/EPUB Rosie Thomas Ï Iris and Ruby MOBI µ Iris and Epub / Ï iris ebok, ruby pdf, Iris and book, Iris and Ruby MOBIAs a fan of Rosie Thomas's writing for many years I do not understand why I let this title linger on my bookshelves for far too longThis author has always written a story that I really feel I can immerse myself in she once again did not disappointA light and easy read but for me perfect during these times of chaos when concentration can be difficult for many of usThe protagonists Iris and her granddaughter Ruby were at first not particularly likeable or engaging characters but that soon changed as one gets further into the novel Moving and reflective inter generational story about love and family relationships With the detailed descriptive and atmospheric writing you find yourself transported to the chaos of CairoAn absorbing read for those looking for escapism

    PDF/EPUB Rosie Thomas Ï Iris and Ruby MOBI µ Iris and Epub / Ï iris ebok, ruby pdf, Iris and book, Iris and Ruby MOBII freuently find that my self chosen reading material is a good barometer of how much is going on in my life at any given moment The light stuff represents chaos the heavier means there is enough cognitive capacity left to think about what is trying to be said This then is a perfect example of the right book at the right time It is reasonably light yet it gave me some excellent reflective pieces about life love and relationships An inter generational story based around dislocation with ones own childrenparents but ultimately the power of connection given the opportunity and a little communication

    PDF/EPUB Rosie Thomas Ï Iris and Ruby MOBI µ Iris and Epub / Ï iris ebok, ruby pdf, Iris and book, Iris and Ruby MOBIGreat descriptions of Egypt and the relationship between Iris and Ruby is excellent I have to add to this was thinking about this book at 5am this morningThe relationship between Ruby and the young Egyptian boy is excellent too and the description of how his family live and what they live amongst is really haunting Also a small point but the descriptions and details of the markets the journeys through the streets and the beautiful inner courtyard of the house are fantastic
