This book held my interest throughout even though there are no heroes or heroines . The characters are all flawed and their lives rather aimless , but the style of writing is excellent. Superb narration, too!

Spellbinding!

I’ve read several books by Waugh and this one was among my favorites. It drips with satire and sarcasm. It isn’t a book that leaves you feeling happy , but it does make you laugh at the irony in life. Excellent narration, too!

I was hesitant to listen to this book due to it being formatted in letters. I took a chance and I am glad I did because the letter format worked surprisingly well. I enjoyed the plot and the well developed characters. The book kept me engaged throughout. Excellent narrator, too!

This is the 2nd book I’ve read by E. Waugh. The first book was Brideshead Revisited which I enjoyed from start to finish . A Handful of Dust is rich in not very likable characters who are beyond redemption. The story is abundantly sarcastic and cleverly funny in a dark way.

Extraordinary!

This book is on my list of all time favorites. Excellent writing and character development. The book is witty as well. Jeremy Irons does an amazing job with all the characters voices bringing them to life!

This is my third book from Daphne du Maurier. I read Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel and The Scapegoat was every bit as good. I enjoyed the characters and the story throughout the book. There were no areas where I lost interest in what was going to happen next. The ending was disappointing and rather open but life doesn’t always have definite endings .

Intriguing!

I enjoyed this book as much as Rebecca. The main characters of Phillip and Rachel are multi dimensional. The book underscores that some relationships are complicated. Both love and hate evoke strong motives as does greed. Exceptional story!

Wow! I didn’t want this beautiful story to end. I enjoyed it as much as The War That Saved My Life . Ada undergoes character changes as does Lady Thornton. The book redefines family and emphasizes the healing power of relationships.
