©1999 Anita Brookner (P)2010 BBC Audiobooks Ltd
I bought this title some time ago, giving up after a while, figuring that I might return to it again at some point. Well ... doing so didn't help much as I've decided to bail on it partway through once again, for good. Just couldn't maintain interest in the limited, dull lives of these unlikeable people. Eleanor Bron's narration fits the story well.
I am a big fan of Anita Brookner and have read all of her books. This is one of my
favorite. She writes of the lonely, constrained lives of two sisters, both of whom have
ill-fated romances. No one describes loneliness better than Anita Brookner.
The narrator is excellent. This book is not for every taste, but it is an
involving and well told story.
