This was my choice for book club, chosen on the strength of lots and lots of positive reviews.

The writing was absolutely charming, and I made my way through it painlessly. But it was totally character- rather than plot-driven, which I am not generally fond of. So it was with this. A little plot would have gone a long way to make me like it more.

The characters were compelling and delightful, though, and the writing top-notch. I shall probably never read it again, but I am not sorry I read it once.
