I always enjoy reading Barbara Taylor Bradford books. They are well written and hold my interest throughout the books. Probably beacuse I have read so many of her books for a number of years and enjoyed all of them. She can take a story and make it very interesting, so much so that I am often up very late so I may finish reading whatever she has written.

Barbara Taylor Bradford's Her Own Rules is a tale about a woman who forgot her past, but must remember it to move on. It was quite slow in the beginning, but worth it all in the end. I thought it was kind of average, not a book to stand out of many, but the plot was interesting enough. Her Own Rules may not be a book for the adventure-seekers, but is definitely a book for readers seeking a strong female character. This book made me laugh, cry and ponder with the characters. It helped me understand that women, alongside men, can be just as emotionally and physically strong.

I began reading this thinking it would be a fairly good story. Boy was I wrong, it began slow, completely lacking any plot, any charactor, and feeling and continued on until I thought I would fall asleep. What a dissapointing read- beware, if you are over the IQ level of a 6 year old you will find this dull!

This was a slow starter for Ms. Bradford and does not possess the depth of characters that I am used to with her. It begins to pick up about 60% through the book and steadily gains momentum through the last few chapters...although, the ending is very predictable. It was shorter than most of her novels also...It is an easy read...
