Injury Time | [Beryl Bainbridge]

Injury Time

Married to Helen, but tangled up with Binny, Edward understands, with a tender pang, how Binny has been denied those small intimacies that a wife takes for granted. Choosing a birthday present for his sister, for example, or washing his socks. Tonight, as a treat for Binny, the lovers are throwing their first dinner party. So long as no one else drops in unexpectedly, it should be a night to remember.

    "Terrific buy!"

    The narration and characters were terrific; missed 5 stars as the plot dragged a bit near the end, but definitely recommended!

    "slow start, exhilarating middle, no end"
    What did you love best about Injury Time?

    It is hilariously funny and yet convincing about the tiny perceptions of everyday people, and even quite dreadful people are endearing. At first I didn't think I would like the very middle class British people and their matter of fact irritations, but it got to be utterly gripping. And then I couldn't believe I had the whole book, when it suddenly ended. I wonder if Ian McEwan was thinking of this when he wrote Saturday? Bainbridge really convinces you of what it might be like to have your world crack open--you might not get another chance--and yet to worry about your weight or your smell or what people think of your dirty house. Say no more.


    Would you recommend Injury Time to your friends? Why or why not?

    Oh yes. Timothy West is the best audio reader I know. I'm going to read more Bainbridge.


    What does Timothy West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's so good with accents and tones of voice. I love how he makes Edward sound when he's being "head boy."


    Who was the most memorable character of Injury Time and why?

    Binny. Stroke of genius, her trip to the shops, thinking she's going crazy. Her worries about her children, spot on.
