Brilliant Book!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 January 2016
Love this bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 November 2012
I loaned this book from a library purely out of boredom but it turned out to be a brilliant book. I usually find crime/thriller plots predictable but this one caught me by surprise. Had to buy myself a copy.

Big disappointment!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 October 2017
With two-dimensional, stereotypical characters, a ludicrously unlikely plot and almost laughable twists towards the end, each more desperate than the last, "Gentlemen and Players" was not the book that I had hoped it would be. The idea that a pupil from one school could pull on the uniform of another, infiltrate its grounds, stalk its corridors for months, stroll its playing fields, make a friend there, listen in on lessons and still not be detected would seem plain barmy to just about anyone who has ever worked in a school. Yet bizarrely that is exactly Joanne Harris' background! This milieu, her home ground, should have been her forte. As it is, I really cannot recommend this book.
