    The Good Soldier is a story about the complex social and sexual relationships between two couples - one English, one American - and the growing awareness of American narrator John Dowell of the intrigues and passions behind their orderly Edwardian façade. It is Dowell’s attitude - his puzzlement, uncertainty, and the seemingly haphazard manner of his narration - that makes the book so powerful and mysterious. In Ford’s brilliantly woven tale, nothing is quite what it seems.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Couldn't wait until it finished.None of the characters were likeable.


    What could Ford Madox Ford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Like he said it was a very sad story. I think the subject was difficult and i didnt like the way the story was told- jumping all over the place.


    What didn’t you like about Ralph Cosham’s performance?

    I think its just that i prefer a female narrator and that the book was difficult for him to do much with.
