    1 thought on “The Cliff House”

    1. I always know I'm safe in Jennings' poetic hands, and she didn't let me down. The Cliff House (I briefly lived in a place called The Cliff as a kid, but it certainly wasn't as glamorous!) is a sensual and simmering novel set during the summer of 1986. Though perhaps not as twisty and turny as her previous - the gripping bestseller In Her Wake - this novel is Jennings' most beautiful, and her characters just pulsated off the page. Some of the description is breathtaking. I didn't just read it; I [...]

    2. A beautifully haunting and evocative tale of loss, love, friendship and obsession here from Amanda Jennings. With the beautiful writing I've come to expect from her.Full review nearer to publication.

    3. The Cliff House is the second novel I've read by Amanda Jennings. As an honourary Cornishwoman, I love diving into a book set in my beloved Cornwall. Set in the 1980s, The Cliff House is a coming of age story about the delicate, passionate friendship between teenage girls. Think Girls On Fire, Mean Girls, 13 Minutes. Set against the beautiful, dramatic backdrop of Cornwall, in amongst places I know and love - Sennen, Botallack (emphasis on the t and the first a, thank you very much), St Just - w [...]

    4. A haunting story with the moral ambiguity of du Maurier. Sea scented air filled with sunlight and menace ant

    5. Twisty and dark, The Cliff House will simultaneously fill you utter house envy (white art deco? Tick. Sea views? Tick. Cornwall? Tick. Exquisite decor, outdoor pool, glamorous lifestyle? Tick, tick, tick.). We're meant to beguiled by The Cliff House, just as Tamsyn is. Tamsyn is local, poor and a bit of an outcast and a loner. Her beloved father is dead, her brother is drifting, her grandfather dying and her mother is beginning to look at a life beyond grief and skivvying to keep her family aflo [...]

    6. This was a very enjoyable read. What is ultimately an in depth look into two contrasting families and their intertwined struggles to deal with two very distinct circumstances, with a touch of the common factor of young adults finding their own place in this world. What makes the writing brilliant is the constant undertone of foreboding that the story is delivered with, an undertone that slowly develops and comes bursting to live as we near the conclusion.You get a real sense of the characters an [...]

    7. Slow paced and very atmospheric. Felt Cornish, good story and strong characters. But left me wondering a bit at the end, was she mad or it was really a ghost? Well worth a read.

    8. As The Cliff House began i was immediately plunged into the beautiful Cornish coast with Seagulls, waves and the taste of the fresh sea air on my lips; I was there. Transported magically by the evocative descriptions Amanda Jennings paints and straight into the lives of the Davenports and Tamsyn and her family. The sense of unbearable yearning that Tamsyn feels for the house is palpable; the belief that she is almost destined for more than she has, without realising that she already has far more [...]

    9. The Cliff House is an engrossing read which begins slowly and builds up to a great climax. It is different from Amanda Jennings' previous novel, In Her Wake, which I also enjoyed.At the beginning of the school summer holidays in 1986 15 year old Tamsyn takes her binoculars to spy on the new occupants of The Cliff House, the glamorous Art Deco house she remembers from secretly visiting with her father. She dreams of living there and swimming in the pool away from her small home in a Cornish villa [...]

    10. In this reviewer’s opinion this has the potential to become a YA classic. It is a poignant coming of age novel.It is a compelling read about 16 year old Tamsyn's struggle to cope with the loss of her father and to understand how the world works. She seeks out the inhabitants of The Cliff House, partly because her father was so drawn to the place. The Davenports, particularly the daughter, Edie appear to have it all. In Tamsyn's eyes, Edie is beautiful, arrogant, sophisticated, confident and ri [...]

    11. This is beautifully written by Amanda Jennings. Her evocative description of Cornwall, the surroundings, and all, are brilliants executed.Set in the 1980's, Tamsyn has the summer holidays to fill. She and her mother live in a small corner of Cornwall and Tamsyn is quite naïve. This is about love, obsession, fear, truth and all things involved in growing up.Trespassing at the house on the cliff, she runs into the householders daughter, Edie. Having been caught out whilst swimming in their normal [...]

    12. This is the first book I have read by this Author. It is a beautifully written story which draws you in very slowly and before you know it you are captivated. A story of friendship, love and obsession. Tamysn is lonely, her dad died years ago and she watches the Cliff House with binoculars imaging the luxurious life of the people who live there. One day she goes for a swim in the Cliff House thinking it is empty and she meets Edie and they become friends. Soon Tamsyn wants to be there all the ti [...]

    13. Wow, what a book. Set mostly in the summer of 86 in Dorset. This is the s tory of Tamsyn, a girl from a working class family and Edie, rich girl who lives in Cliff House. This story is about friendship, envy, jealousy between the girls and involving both Edie's parents, Eleanor and Max and Tamsyn's mother, grandfather and brother. The ending is tumultuous, I don't want to add .spoilers, but a slight shocking ending. Preserve the slow beginning and the book will draw you in. Well written, so full [...]

    14. Thank you to Amanda Jennings and Netgalley for a chance to read The Cliff House in exchange for an honest review. This book was an enjoyable read from the outset. I loved how vividly the beautiful Cornish landscape was described, I could really imagine being there. I also loved that it was set in the 1980's. The Cliff House follows the story of a blossoming friendship between 2 teenage girls Tamsyn and Edie. Tamsyn has become a loner after losing her father some years before. She has taken to wa [...]

    15. This is the most intriguing of books, I was drawn to it in a way that was almost magnetic. Whilst not action packed, it does have a certain mystery, a gentleness and yet some disturbing events that gripped me in a way that I didn’t expect. The writing is wonderful and so beautifully descriptive it felt that I was there on that hilltop, or following the coastal path , or drinking in a Cornish village pub with the locals. Just a stunning read, so thank you Amanda Jennings and NetGalley.

    16. A beautifully written story that slowly draws you in and then you are hooked!! Whilst not action packed the descriptive writing more than atones for this. Thank you Amanda Jennings and Netgalley for this wonderful book.

    17. Mixed feelings on this one - I think it's one of those books that some people will love and will leave others cold.I quite enjoyed it but found the pace rather slow, and a few of the characters felt like caricatures (IMHO).Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for an ARC.

    18. Loved The Cliff House - great characters,lovely setting & a tale of 2 families that will have you hooked! A real page turner.

    19. Its one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. I enjoyed it so much! I feel very lucky to could read it before it was published. There is not much action in the book but the writing is just amazing. I’m not giving five stars easily. I can’t wait to read other books from the author but on the other hand I’m worried if they won’t be as good as this one :) It’s not a book for everyone. I thought I won’t like it in the beginning, turned out is one of my favourites this year!
