Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bradford weighs in with a maudlin saga about a woman's struggle to go on after a devastating tragedy. Her narrator, New York wife and mother Mallory Keswick, feels she is showered with blessings, but just as the family is making plans to go to London for Christmas, her husband, twin children and dog are murdered in an attempted carjacking. Depressed and contemplating suicide, Mal flees to London, where she slowly learns to accept her losses. Returning to the States, she turns the family's Connecticut weekend retreat into a successful business venture and eventually meets a man who is able to breach her emotional barricades. Spanning five years and two continents, Bradford's chronicle offers several affecting passages--but when Mal continues to mention the loss of her dog in the same tragic litany as her husband and children, credibility evaporates. Monotonous inventory listings of the trappings of material success slow the narrative momentum, as does the author's flat prose and tin-ear dialogue, especially ludicrous since Mal is supposedly a Radcliffe graduate. Nor does Bradford reach beyond her tried and true romantic formula for greater complexity--or even to tie up some potentially intriguing plot lines that mysteriously evaporate after they are introduced.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book so far from believable that I actually found myself shouting the words "Oh, come on!" at least ten times.
It didn't start out all that bad - you more or less expected the life-is-so-perfect stuff as a build up to the tragedy. And, I guess it was a bit over-done, but Malory's grief was acceptable. But, after that - there was no point left to the story. There was not one single obstacle put in this woman's way - everything she tried to do turned into a roaring success! She hints at money problems immediately after the husbands death - yet there is no indication ever that money is a concern. Matter of fact, she just buys whatever she wants, keeps a staff of housekeepers on the payroll while she trots off to England for six months. Who was footing the bills?
Anyone who struggled after the death of a spouse, or anyone who ever struggled to build a business best NOT pick up this book. You'll end up throw it across the room.

I read A Woman of Substance, and liked the book, so when I came across Everything to Gain, by the same author, I expected a good read.
I was extremely disappointed. The book was not worth the time. There is nothing to hold your interest - no strong characters or character development, no interesting plot, no sharp writing or snappy dialogue.
In short, a waste of time...

Everything to Gain is a great title, because this book has everything. Great characters, great drama, and great escapism. It dosn't matter if some things are "unbelievable"; the books content is so well written you can't help but to cheer Meg on and you just want to tell her there is hope and to keep trying. Thanks for making me feel like I was there!

Except that the main character's name is Mal (short for Mallory) and NOT Meg! Did you even read this lousy book?? I was bored to tears, only stuck with it because I promised someone I'd read it. Now I have, and what drivel it was. The first half of the book dragggggged on and on. The second half wasn't even remotely realistic. My advice is to stay as far away from this book as possible--it stinks!

There are people that think the best never happens. Perhaps that is me at this moment (why I gave the book 9/10). This is the first book (to date, March 1997) that I've read by Barbara Taylor Bradford and boy was it a heart shaking novel. Well done to Barbera! As another reviewer has already said, I felt like I was with the character. The book has taught me several things about life. I won't list them here

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was so badly written that

a)I couldn't read anymore than the first half

b)I kept laughing outloud

What a load of tosh. I have only ever read one other Barbara Taylor Bradford and the was about 20 years ago, the well known 'Woman Of Substance' and I remember absolutely loving it. I can't say I even liked this one.

The characters are so one dimensional and frankly BORING. The description and the dialogue are saccharine sweet. The way Mal talks about her husband and her marriage and her life in general is so idealistic it made me want to puke.Anyone who thinks this is a good read must have a brain the size of a gnat and haved the mental age of 12.I've written more interesting shopping lists.
