I like Pat Barker's work very much, but this is not her best book. It's perfectly readable, and the closing section (50-some pages or so) is genuinely moving and beautifully restrained. It starts well, too, but the middle section is a bit of slog as the various narrative threads seem to unravel. And not all of them are brought back together in a wholly satisfying way. I'm glad I read it, but I doubt it will live in my mind the way some of her other books do.
