Read from September 30 to October 01, 2011

This novel was rather disappointing for me, and I'm a huge fan of Brookner's work. The story just didn't seem to develop, and I really couldn't relate to the characters. Usually in Brookner's work characters undergo psychological change or gain deep insight into their lives and emotions; in this one nothing much seemed to happen. This is my least favorite of Brookner's novels, and I'd place it last in my recommendations for a reader looking to study Anita Brookner's works.
