Yey! I got this yesterday! Can't wait to read it. My boss has lent me a book which I guess I'll have to read first, but it's only a short one so hopefully it won't be too long until I get on to this. Thanks pookledoo!

I just couldn't get in to this, I'm afraid. I've got about 100 pages in but it's just not speaking to me, so I'm going to give in (which fills me with ridiculous guilt) and pass it on to the next person. Thanks for the opportunity, though, Pookledoo!

I've PMed skribble and will post this on when I've the address.

This took some reading - but was worthwhile. It was different from my expectations, I thought the book was more about Sebastian than Charles.

There is so much in this book, I know it would benefit from a second read, but can't see me ever getting round to it. I would love to see the TV adaptation.

Will send to chas04 as soon as I get their address.

Thank you for the book, I'll get on to it ASAP.

I really enjoyed it. I hadn't seen the tv programme but all anyone could tell me was that a grown man wanders around with a teddy bear. In fact, that only features in the first few chapters of the book. Strange what people remember.

It's a bit of a strange story about Charles Ryder and his relationship with various members of the Flyte family. Religion and homosexuality are the underlying themes, although the latter is only hinted at really.

An interesting insight into the British upper classes before the second world war.

I finished it today and feel it deserves a second reading, which I hope I will be able to do at some point in my lifetime. For now, I am letting it free.
I did enjoy it and was moved by parts of it, although it was not what I expected and it took a surprising turn towards the final chapters.
