Volume 1 of A Dance to the Music of Time. It is all Dunzy's fault that I bought this book. When he suggested Powell's Dance to the Music of Time for our next marathon read-along, I trotted out to Chapters to check it out. Yikes, all those volumes at $22.00 a pop would have set me back. But how could I resist when I found three of the set for $2.00 each at the Children's Hospital Book Market. So, now I have 1, 11 and 12 and will be on the search for the rest.

That darned Dunzy! Now he's suggesting I donate the book to the 1001-library!

But I have to admit it's a great idea. While I haven't read this yet, I do have all of the first three books in this series in another single volume, so I can safely lend this one out.

So off to the 1001-library it goes!

It's on its way to Cassiopaeia in Wales. Way more exciting than sitting on the shelf.

Many thanks Pooker3, A Question of Upbringing has arrived safely in Wales. Your card is very appropriate and most welcome, I needed a new chive patch, now I have no excuse and will start this new one as soon as the soil warms up.

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this one or not but in the final analysis I did find it interesting and rather rewarding. I felt as if I was viewing this particular social tranche with a sideways look and not as I expected, to meet them head on. I liked Powell's casual but observant narrative style, which made me feel involved rather than being the interloper I really was.

Many thanks Pooker3, now returning to 1001-library to await another reader.

Not the upbringing I am familiar with. A different aspect to British life. I will have to look for the rest in the series.

Part 1 of A Dance to the Music of Time

Since this is only the first in a cycle of 12 novels, it feels as if one is expected to write a review on the first couple of chapters of a book: too early to tell, really, but so far so (very) good.

What I did enjoy a lot, is the fact that the author is such a keen observer. More than that: he manages to paint the subtle nuances of a situation so vividly that I often reread a passage just for the enjoyment of it.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the cycle.

Thanks to Dunzy, who introduced me to A Dance to the Music of Time, and to Pooker3, who donated this book to the library (to which the book is now duly returned).

Journal Entry 17 by Horinkie at Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Sunday, July 22, 2012

8 out of 10

It was a pleasure to read the first volume of A Dance to the Music of Time.

A Question of Upbringing follows the main characters throughout college and university in the early 1920s. Life & friendship is excellently captured with detailed observations and I felt very much like being in the middle of the story.

A very good start - I'm keen to read on.
