(Free Ebook) ß The Upstart Þ eBook or E-pub free

I fell in love with C Cookson when I was a teenager and still love her books This is a good one SO many words. I read all of Catherine Cookson s books some years ago and enjoyed them immensley I recently re read all of them and find that on a second look I found them all so very predictable, and was rather disappointed However I m sure that it is my tastes that have changed not the calibre of her story telling. Another great read from my favourite author In some ways the characters were so unlikeable or poorly developed that you didn t care what happened to them I really only got into caring about the storyline after a twist near the end. When I started this book I did not expect it be this good It was a very good reading experience The growth of each character along story was great Superb characterization Overall a great read. A classic tale about excessive ambition and climbing to the top of the heap leading to the disintergration of the family and family values Classic read The first Catherine Cookson book I read during isolation The plots and the characters were interesting though wasn t her best one.
