Comments The Girl on the Cliff

  • Sandra

    I cannot really share all the excitement of the other reviews. It's not like I didn't like the book. I just think it was overly dramatic at times, tended to be a little too unrealistic sometimes and was just very sentimental. Moreover I think that the character of Aurora was just completely unauthentic, I could not connect to her at all. Even though she was supposed to be an 'old soul', her thoughts were way to mature, with the author desperately trying to make her sound like a child. At times, [...]

    “I believe that our lives, just like fairy tales - the stories that have been written by us humans, through our own experiences of living - will always have a Hero and a Heroine, a Fairy Godmother and a Wicked Witch.”A lovely beautiful story with haunting and ethereal tones to it. Grania and Aurora meet by chance on the cliffs and from there unfolds a friendship and connection she didn't expect. She soon learns their families histories are more tangled than either her or Aurora knew.There ar [...]


  • Marcia Killingsworth

    This is an unforgivably, irredeemably rotten book. "The Girl on the Cliff" is set in Ireland and weaves together both contemporary and historical plot-lines. The best use of this book is as a drinking game; it is otherwise useless. Truly.The game: Take a drink every time an American character says "real" instead of "really," and another when an Irish character calls someone "pet." And chug the contents of your glass for the countless malapropisms, e.g. emotions that go *up and down, like a pendu [...]

    Guau. Maravillosa. ❤️


  • Carolyn Hill

    Two and a half stars, rounded up. I was attracted to this book by elements I typically can't resist - a setting on the coast of Ireland, multiple time frames from the present back to WWI and decades between, two families intricately linked through the generations, an old estate home on a cliff above the sea and another mansion in London, and a bit of a Gothic flavor with mysterious orphaned children, suicide, and hints of ghosts. This definitely falls in the Kate Morton vein of what I call new G [...]

    I was appalled by this book and cannot believe it was published by Penguin. Luckily I only paid 20p for it at a carboot sale but to be honest I even begrudge paying that.Some possible spoilers below - but they illustrate just some of the reasons why I found this book so dreadfulThere is a complete lack of cohesion between the multitude of storylines; one is meant to be told through a series of letters, which the heroine is given to read, but is delivered through a hefty piece of narrative with n [...]


  • Elphaba J

    A Menina na Falésia é uma história maravilhosa. Adaptada a públicos variados, devido à singularidade e mestria do seu texto, esta narrativa chega a ser encantatória envolvendo totalmente o leitor nos conflitos e amores que tomaram conta de várias gerações entre duas famílias destinadas a estar unidas.Existe na memória uma força poderosa que faz crescer o medo e, mesmo que essa memória seja tão antiga como os erros e as paixões que dominam estas personagens, é imprescindível apro [...]


  • Anne

    The Girl on the Cliff published by Penguin ticks all of my favourites in a book. It's a story told in a dual time narrative, it's a story of family relationships, it's a romance and at times it's a tragedy. With almost 450 pages in the paperback edition, it's a hefty read but I found myself flying through it. There are three main female characters; Aurora - the Girl on the Cliff; Grania - the modern-day heroine and Mary, who was Grania's Great-Grandmother. Grania has fled her life in New York af [...]


  • Anna

    Rating: 4.5 starsThis book has a real ethereal quality to it. Aurora, the girl on the cliff, and Grania, back in Ireland after ten years away, are drawn together through grief and circumstance, and in doing so, the past lives of the Lisles (Aurora’s family) and the Ryans (Grania’s family) are brought back to the fore.The families entangled histories, which resulted in a bitter feud, started 100 years earlier when Mary began working as a parlour maid for the wealthy Lisles. Baby Anna is entru [...]


  • Joanne D'Arcy

    Lucinda Riley’s first book Hothouse Flower was excellent, her second surpasses that; something which many authors struggle to do.This is a book where its core theme is love both with the present story and the past story which is told to us by Aurora the girl on the cliff. Aurora opens the story telling us as a readers she is going to tell her story, that of the past and the present and the intervening years and she is going to tell it despite unhappy occurrences and struggles of her many relat [...]

    Foi com imenso prazer que convivi, ao longo de 500 páginas, com as famílias Ryan e Lisle. Durante um período de cerca de cem anos, desfilam personagens cujas vidas, boas e más, me enterneceram e me deixaram com saudades após virar a última página.


  • Celina

    Mein bisher liebstes Lucinda Riley-Buch. :)


  • Ana

    Um livro fantástico que nos agarra desde o início. Uma história de amores desencontrados, escolhas difíceis e redenção. Um segredo de família escondido por gerações e desvendado com grande suspense, entrecalando uma história no passado com o presente.Só não consigo dar 5 porque a Grania me pareceu uma personagem um bocadinho inconstante, o que me enervou bastante.


  • Peggy

    The only times I've given a 1 star rating was when I disliked a book so much I didn't even finish it. Given that I only finished this one for a challenge and would for sure have abandonded it otherwise, I think I can make an exception. Ah, maybe I should give it 1.5, because I could have stopped reading and didn't. I was just so interested to know what bizarre thing the author would come up with next! Boy, was this bad, the present-day story at least. For a while I reasoned the storyline set in [...]


  • Filipa

    Lucinda Riley conseguiu engendrar uma trama tão simples como complexa que me manteve cativa até ao fim! É uma história tão mas tão bonita. . . contada por uma pessoa muito especial. . . que ensina o que é o verdadeiro amor, que o amor tem várias formas, que a vida é curta e que não nos adianta ver o lado negativo das coisas mas o lado positivo e a esperança. . . porque temos muito pouco tempo por cá. . . são umas férias, como se costuma dizer. . .É a história de duas famílias de [...]


  • Mermaid Undine

    oh god I don't know why I'm still reading this , oh yeah the library doesn't open until tuesdayrora is annoying, swings from being immature and needy to manipulative. i was rather hoping her father would turn out to be a vampire (pale, grey, skeletal - surely a vampire?) nope just dying and not man enough to tell anyone denying them a chance to come to terms with whats happeningania/matt/charley just a huge cliche, one of those ones that if they just sat down and talked to each other like grown [...]


  • Neide Parafitas

    Absolutamente Maravilhoso este livro!!!!Com um leque de personagens fascinantes, foi um livro que me transmitiu imensos sentimentos, desde a revolta, até ao grande poder do amor!ADOREI!!!! :)


  • Carla

    A minha nota vai para a história, que adorei, porque se formos pela tradução fiquei bastante descontente. Além da repetição de certas palavras ou expressões até à exaustão, não gostei da forma como foi traduzido o sotaque dos locais de uma determinada região da Irlanda. Ficou a parecer alentejano e não acrescentou nada à história.

  • Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews

    Dunworley Bay, West Cork, Ireland, London, parlor maids, orphans, a character with a sixth sense, castles, crashing waves, a family legacy, letters, and secrets.what else could you ask for? All this and more is wrapped up in THE GIRL ON THE CLIFF. This book takes you away to the magic of life in 1914 in castles, normal households, and into the life of a family that leaves a legacy and many secrets for current-day folks to discover and secrets that reveal the family's history and who Anna really [...]


  • Teresa

    The Girl on the Cliff has all the elements which usually enchant me in a novel – dual time frame, a variety of interesting locations and characters and a hint of romance. Indeed, the author has packed a lot into this novel – World War I and II, contemporary Ireland and New York, a large cast of characters from a variety of social backgrounds.In our contemporary story, Grania Ryan has fled her bohemian life (and partner, Matt) in New York following the traumatic experience of a miscarriage. S [...]

    Once again I find myself a 1-star girl in a sea of (mostly) 5-star reviews.Where to begin?I could maybe forgive the stilted dialogue -- especially when Ms. Riley portrayed young, modern American characters -- and perhaps forgive the blindingly obvious manipulations of Charley. Less forgivable were the Hallmark Channel smarmy/absurd story line (full of convenient coincidences), what an irritating, creepy kid Aurora was (couldn't stand her myself), the childish relationship between Matt and Grania [...]


  • Tracy

    If you've never read a Lucinda Riley book, don't start with this one! I've read many of her books and have loved them all, but I will never recommend this book to anyone. It started well. I was really enjoying Mary's story. Then the first tragedy struck with an unreal and totally unnecessary suicide. From that point forward there were several more tragedies that were just unbelievable to me. I finally thought I was getting a somewhat happy ending when the author kills off yet another key charact [...]


  • Monica

    This novel was almost 4 stories in one. The novel starts out in present day with Grania having just lost a baby and having a fight with her long term boyfriend moves back home to Ireland. She had been working in New York and living with Matt. In Ireland she meets an 8 year old girl who is going to change her life in more than one way. The novel flashbacks to Grania's great grandmother and her own mother. The stories all relate so it is not confusing. A good story but I do prefer some of Lucinda [...]


  • Leah

    I must admit, The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley, isn’t necessarily a book I’ve been looking forward to; until I received it for review, I didn’t even know it was coming out. When my copy came, I wasn’t necessarily sure I’d read it; I’m not a historical fan in general, however sometimes it’s nice to take a chance on a book you wouldn’t ordinarily look twice at. Mostly, though, I just thought Aurora sounding enchanting and I was rather desperate to know exactly why the Ryans a [...]


  • Estefânia Botelho

    Razões da escolha do livro: Oferta da editora Asa! A sinopse pareceu-me muito interessante e a capa do livro é muito apelativa.Proveniência: A minha biblioteca.A minha Opinião: Ter a oportunidade de ler este livro foi fenomenal!Em primeiro lugar, tem um cenário diferente dos livros que estamos habituados: grande parte da narrativa decorre na Irlanda, que pelas descrições do livro, parece ser um país fascinante. A história também tem lugar em Londres e Nova Iorque.É um livro que descre [...]


  • Darcy

    This is the first novel I’ve read by Lucinda Riley and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The mysterious atmosphere of the Irish coast, the interplay between past and present, and the slowly unfolding connections between the characters was intriguing. Multi-generational stories, where the existence of one character (or characters) is shown to reflect or be intertwined with those of past generations are popular right now and think Riley does justice to the genre. A lot of times I get to the last 50 or so [...]


  • Paula pccst

    Iniciei a leitura d'"A Menina na Falésia" com altas expectativas, depois de várias opiniões positivas de outros leitores e agora terminado, sou mais uma leitora que reforça o quão agradável é este livro. "A Menina na Falésia" é narrada pela pequena Aurora Lisle, uma menina que perdeu recentemente a sua mãe, e é através dela que nos é apresentada a história de duas famílias que vêm as suas vidas ligadas desde há muitos anos até aos dias de hoje. Neste livro temos assim duas pers [...]


  • Minty McBunny

    Umm.well. This book started out promisingly enough. Aurora's segments addressing the reader were annoying, but the story itself was engaging enough, particularly Mary's story (though why it was presented to Grania as letters but then not told in epistolary form, and included way more details than would have been shared with a fiancé's mother is beyond me). But then, in the last portion of the book, it just got ridiculous. Grania's reason for leaving Matt was ridiculous, if they'd been together [...]


  • Yasmin

    Giving this up as a DNF. It really surprised me, as I've read a few of her other books and absolutely loved them. This one read like it was written by a totally different author. I don't see how someone who wrote such a rich and sumptuous story as The Hothouse Flower could have written this!!!I will forgive her though, as the others I've read (Midnight Rose, The Italian Girl and Hothouse Flower) are just wonderful . By no means has this book put me off the author (it was one of her earlier effor [...]
