    When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: “Can’t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.” His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi’s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled....

    Story

    A very dark, cynical, sad, and erotic piece of writing. The characters are weak, the story lines thin, and the narrative predictible. To support the sagging book, sex is used indiscrimately and becomes offensive. Any dignity of life in old age is stripped away. Every relationship fails. All people of faith become disillusioned. Not recommended on any level.

    Story

    In the wake of a humbling incident aboard a canal boat in the Cotswolds, young Captain Horatio Hornblower arrives in London to take command of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop barely large enough to require a captain. Her first assignment under Hornblower's command is as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon Atropos is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasure that lies deep in Turkish waters

    John says: "Great book. Poor narrator."
    "Another great book!"
    Overall

    Forester has so many adventures awaiting the clever Captain. Don't miss the excitement and daring.
    It says I can't post this until I'm finished writing my review. So there it's done.

    Story

    Bernard Elliot, a poet, and Frances Reardon, a fiction writer, meet at a writers' colony during the summer of 1957 and begin a friendship and correspondence. Bernard, well-born and Harvard-educated, is gregarious, reckless, and passionate; Frances, the precocious daughter of a middle-class Irish family, is circumspect, wry, and more than a little judgmental. What starts as an exploration of faith eventually becomes a romance, a development complicated by Bernard's fall into manic depression and Frances' struggle to decide whether she is strong enough to weather the illness with him for the long term.

    Story

    I hate to give such a tepid review to someone's hard labours but truly the story was just a story - unremarkable. I wanted to feel strongly for Bernard's handicap but somehow it just wasn't there.
