"Not a listen for the faint at heart"
It took me three attempts to try and get into this book. Sadly, although I persevered, I found this book very hard going indeed. The plot seemed disjointed, characters a little confusing and the narration, in parts, quite strange.
I was unable to form any connection with these characters and, in parts, was at a total loss as to who was whom.
"What a waste of time, effort and a credit"
Hopeless writing, awful characters - who cares what happened to them, or what brand of aftershave they use, nor to I care to know that he had obviously spent a night away as the salt stains of persperation indicated two days of wear, in the way of rings on a tree shows the age......
The reading was dreary - though possibly Anna Bentinck was also bored senseless.
I CANNOT finish this book, it is one of the worst that I have come across.
