  1. Maybe this leopard can change her spots I m the perennial thriller reader I read thrillers because they are often fast passed, make my heart beat faster and I love a suspenseful read So why have I found myself bewtiched by the author JoJo Moyes I have just finished my third book The Ship of Brides and will be singing its praises to everyone I meet It s the end of World War II and thousands of Australian women, War Brides, will be traveling to England to reunite with the men they married Over 600 [...]

  2. 2.5 StarsThis is my fifth Jojo Moyes novel and, unfortunately, the only one I thought would never end.The storyline is GREAT based on actual historical events of post WW2 war brides traveling aboard a naval warship to reunite with their husbands in England I also enjoyed reading the newspaper and journal entries posted at the beginning of each chapter, but other than Frances and Nicol s story, I am sorry to say, it was pretty much slow going with confusing dialogue and needless catty conversatio [...]

  3. Soummmah.I just finished this and I don t have words Multiple superlatives will be used This one moved me in so many ways Holy shite, what a story I became quite attached to Frances and Maggie I will miss them.Jojo Moyes is a versatile novelist She picks a topic she wants to write about and makes it her own There s a richness and depth to this story that surpasses Me Before You.

  4. What a wonderful book that I ve just finished One of those that really mean something It was a pleasure to read this book, the first of Jo Jo Moyes that I have had the pleasure to read This is a beautiful story that is based on a factual voyage, each chapter starts with an non fictional extract based on experiences of war brides, or those who served on the Victorious.The year is 1946, and almost 700 war brides are making their way to England, the war is over We follow a group of gals who have so [...]

  5. Opening Line The first time I saw her again, I felt as if I d been hit I absolutely loved this book, another winner from JoJo Moyes who bases this moving story on real events and her own grandmother Taking the reader back to 1946 in the aftermath of the Second World War as thousands of young war brides are transported from Australia to England to meet up with their GI husbands who they d married during the conflict For many woman it was a time of huge uncertainty, leaving their families and ever [...]

  6. I m a huge fan of Jojo Moyes and until now have never been on the fence with what to rate her work This one is a tough one though I liked half I disliked half I found myself impatient to know what happened in the end, to each and every one of the girls, yet at the same time, I found myself skimming the man parts the captain s tale, Nicol s story, this guy and that guy They bored me, and I didn t care about their lives.This story doesn t really let the reader get to know the heroines, and there a [...]

  7. I love JoJo Moyes and her ability to make Chick lit which I love , just a bit different Some of her books are based on historical events, again something that I find is a great asset to her writing.However, and it is a shame to say that, this book just didn t work for me I found the storyline hard to get in to, possibly a little dull at times I don t know much about the subject of Australian war brides and the book didn t really help I found it hard to pick up on the love the brides had for thei [...]

  8. Firstly I have to say that this is a tough book to get into I put it down many times and only read little bits at a time, It almost felt like I was reading this for school If it was by any other author I would ve given up I m so glad I kept with it.Once you actually read a meaty chuck of it you start to feel like your really on board the ship apart of these brides lives Characters POVTold in third person narrative, there a 4 main brides out of the 650 women who end up being roomies together.Marg [...]

  9. B cher, bei denen man hinterher erst einmal einen Moment braucht, um zur ck in das wahre Leben zu finden, das sind die wirklich guten B cher Zu diesen B chern z hle ich grunds tzlich auch jene von Jojo Moyes Mir gef llt ihr Schreibstil nicht zwangsl ufig die Erz hlform Ihre Geschichten ziehen mich sofort in ihren Bann Die Art, wie sie beschreibt, ist unglaublich lebendig Einf hlsam, spannend und fl ssig reiht sie die S tze aneinander und spinnt so ein eindringliches, ber hrendes Netz um den Lese [...]

  10. I like Jojo Moyes but I d avoided reading this one because of the time period It s not something that interests me BUT what a mistake I was quickly drawn in to the lives of these Australian women en route for the UK after the war as husbands of British servicemen I loved the variety of characters, the understated love story, it all worked really well I could easily see this as a film

  11. This was BEYOND boring I thought would never end._.The prologue was so touching I was convinced the book gonna be great I was wrong.

  12. Ich bin froh dieses Buch als H rbuch geh rt zu haben Der Anfang war ziemlich z h Es hat lange gedauert bis ich in die Geschichte rein gekommen bin Auch dass es aus so vielen Sichten erz hlt wird, war sehr verwirrend Es w re besser gewesen, wenn immer dabei gestanden w re, aus wessen Sicht gerade erz hlt wird Ab ca der H lfte war ich dann in der Geschichte drin und der Schluss war so spannend, dass ich nicht aufh ren konnte

  13. I loved the idea of this book, but not the execution I m wondering if I built it up too much in my head before reading as I thought the premise a really interesting one I enjoyed it but this book wasn t a favorite Actually, that s the problem I have this book read like a tv series I feel like you could literally hand sections of the book to a director and, in order, he ll make an Avice episode, the Frances background episode, etc.A quick, easy read with an interesting premise based on true event [...]

  14. When I have bought and started to read this book I confess I expected a few sweet romances in the package What I got is much, much deeper and better.5 stars for 1 A original and very interesting historical background I didn t know that such marriages were so much common during IIWW.2 Beautiful, gripping fictional stories.3 Perfectly chosen characters.4 A captivating, deep understanding of human nature.There was moment nearer the end when I thought it was drifting to 4 stars I felt a little lost, [...]

  15. A really enjoyable read with an original and interesting plot Great characterisation not quite as gripping as some of her other books but it s stayed with me and would highly recommend it.

  16. Nuotak laivas buvo kaip tik tai, ko man reik jo po kankinan io Vilniaus pokerio , bet bendrai tai reikal su Moyes matyt reiks raukti ir ie koti nauj prasibla kymo plot Fabula apie kelis imtus australi karo nuotak plaukian i l ktuvne iu Anglij pas savo vyrus tikrai domi, ka kaip net pats pasakymas karo nuotaka , nors ir akivaizdus, s mon padoriai pasiek tik skaitant To tokio kad ir nedidelio tikros istorijos dvelksmo suteik ir tikros laikra i ar atsiminim i traukos, nors iaip tai romanui ir ne ka [...]

  17. 3.5 stars.This novel is set in the time period just after World War II During the War many people from all over the world met one another and got married quite hastily, to people that they wouldn t see until the War was over This novel starts off in Australia, where over 600 Australian brides need to be transported to their English husbands in England, to go and live as a married couple now that the War is over An old aircraft carrying ship is commissioned for its last journey to take these brid [...]

  18. The Ship of Brides had a bit of a slow burn, which was pribebly because of the large amount of POVs for just one ship Towards the end It got good and emotional.

  19. On October 27, 1945 the HMS Victorious set off for the first of three trips to transport WWII servicemen and war brides Jojo Moyes s own grandmother was one of those brides, traveling from Australia to England to be with her husband According to the acknowledgements, her story and others inspired The Ship of Brides, which was originally released back in 2005 but has recently been reissued by Penguin.The war has ended and out of the remaining war brides in Australia, Margaret, Avice, Jean, and Fr [...]

  20. This was my second Jojo Moyes book, after reading and thoroughly enjoying The last letter from your lover The Ship of Brides is a moving story based on a real events taking place in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, as thousands of young women were transported to Great Britain or the United States from Australia to meet up with the GI husbands they married when they were stationed in the country during the conflict In many cases, these young women left their families and homes beh [...]

  21. I found the premise of this book to be compelling than the actual story I love a good, big, historical fiction romance novel, and I love the fact that it was based on true events of the day The book itself left much to be desired It was so slow in the beginning I read this on my kindle and was 53% through before I was actually interested in reading Throughout, I wanted to know about the relationships with the brides and their husbands The book was primarily based on the relationships they dev [...]

  22. Ein toller Roman ber Hoffnung, Intrigenspiele, Liebe und 600 Frauen auf einem Flugzeugtr ger welcher sie nach England zu ihren Ehem nner bringen sollte Die Frauen freuen sich auf ein Wiedersehen mit ihrem M nnern, endlich ist der Krieg vorbei und alle sollten wieder vereint werden Auf dem Schiff reist auch Frances mit, eine junge zur ckhaltende Krankenschwester In der ganzen Geschichte bleibt sie eher verschlossen nur in Henry Nicol, ein Marinesoldat, findet sie langsam Vertrauen, welcher jede n [...]

  23. I was pleasantly surprised by this novel I might actually say I was shocked by how involved and interested in it I became.JoJo Moyes weaves together the stories of four very different women into a comprehensive masterpiece I was surprised to find that even in the telling of such an intricate tale, none of the women s stories felt ingenuine or like plot devices even the mysteries surrounding them unravelled in what felt like a natural way Nothing about this book was forced or overwrought, which i [...]

  24. Such an extraordinary book centred so deeply or the women who travelled over after the war of 1945 How these thousand of females war brides travelled over the ocean to England I loved this most amazing book written by Jo Jo Moyes She is certainly a favourite of mine indeed Discovering who is on aboard this trip So many stories are told all by so many different women all suffering too So much history in this travel so far for all these poor women I really enjoyed all these different stories.An am [...]

  25. In 1946, after careful negotiations between the British and Australian governments, HMS Victoria left Sydney with over 600 war brides on board, plus 1000 naval staff The brides were all Australian citizens who had married a UK citizen during wartime and in many cases, hadn t seen their husband for years This is a time when a flight between Sydney and London had only just begun at a speedy 63 hours , Australians were seen by many British as country bumpkins, and decorum and reputation were impor [...]
