late to the party - started it yonks ago and then had to keep taking breaks to read something that gripped me more . . . until the last quarter when I did become quite immersed in it

By the end I quite enjoyed it, the dislikable characters were thoroughly dislikable, but I did find it confusing for a while (and I'm not THAT dim). Overall I don't think there were enough redeeming features for me to recommend it on . . . give me six months and I'll have forgotten that and be encouraging people to give it a go! If that happens give me a prod in the direction of the senior moments thread

I chose this book as one of my Read a Book for Every Year of your Life ones. I got it from a charity shop and it will be going back there. I suspect that tells you a lot about my feelings towards it and possibly the donor's too.

Any book where I have to keep referring to the family tree, hasn't quite got it right ;-)

Got something to say?
