8 out of 10

I approached this book with interest having read and enjoyed 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum' by the same author but having been unable to get into 'Human Croquet'. This one is quite grim in places although not lacking in some humour , it is rather complex and perhaps best read in large chunks as you could easily lose the thread if read in short sessions.

this was a very captivating read. I liked how the different plots were woven together. It is a tragedy and a comedy, sometimes rather depressing, sometimes rather funny. Very well written, very vivid characters

Journal Entry 8 by wingApoloniaXwing at Bremen, Bremen Germany on Friday, March 25, 2011

8 out of 10

This book has been hanging around on Mt. TBR far too long, but finally I got around to reading it. And found it quite unputdownable (no chance NOT to read it in large chunks). Well written, very powerful. There is so much pain and grief and sadness in this novel - not even the detective is spared, but Atkinson is never overdoing it. And interspersed it with subtle humour. The stories are tricky, with some twists and turns, details are withhold, then suddenly turn up, but then after a while things aren't to hard to guess. And maybe she shouldn't have given the dates and ages. The protagonists make up for it, great characterisations. Highly recommendable.
29 June: Reserved for Moriquen.
(Xana was also interested, but you were 50 minutes earlier, Moriquen! If you don't mind passing it on....)

Thanks for reserving it for me! And of course I have no problems sending it to Xana after I've finished with it. I'd be more then happy to do so!

5 out of 10

Hmmm, this book didn't really do it for me at all. Some of the plots were very obvious while others were dreary and uninteresting. It's a shame, because I had rather high hopes for it. Perhaps there was a little too much middle aged drama in it for me. (All of the characters seem on the verge of some kind of midlifecrisis and they're dealing with it very badly.)
But thanks for handing it to me ApoloniaX. You never know until you've tried it! I'll try to contact Xana again to see if she still wants the book!
