Reviews

beautifully read and an interesting character study


(5 stars)

As usual, Arnold Bennett’s writing is wonderful. This is a somewhat odd story, and doesn’t have a lot of dramatic twists and turns, because it is primarily I’ll look into the lives of some interesting people. It’s a fairly long story, and just carry you along in a nice way.

a study of character


(5 stars)

The characters are all brought to vivid life by Bennet's wonderful observation of the different quirks of thought and behaviour . Although long, the story held my interest from start to finish. The reader is excellent and the different voices enhance each character.

Touching story, well read


(5 stars)

I would agree totally with the two previous reviewers. I liked the ending.
