Well this was a bit of a downer...I really wanted to like Katherine..she was alone and friendless but so prickly was she, I found the bleakness fitting. Robin is a fop and an idiot and her relationship with him seems vapid. This seems all a bit negative, but it isn't..it just fits the period..sitting around, waiting for just something to just happen. It's a very clever book but also invokes sadness which belied the novelty of the gorgeous book cover

Received in the post from Jules5 this morning as a RABCK along with another book (Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris). Thanks very much-you are very kind. Thanks also for the interesting postcard from India. I haven't read anything by this author although I've heard of him so will look forward to reading it.

Review:- "I found Philip Larkin to be a very "wordy" writer, a little reminiscent of Thomas Hardy at times. I wasn't always sure what was going on within the story but I still had to keep on reading, The book didn't have a very satisfactory conclusion for me and I was left guessing about what happened in the middle."

I'm reserving the book for Snoopy56 as I'll be interested to see what she makes of it.
