Read for EN4413: Reading the 1940s, 2011-2012.

Out of all the books I've read so far for my EN4413 module, Reading the 1940s, this is definitely the one I enjoyed least. I was wavering between a 5/10 or a 6/10 for this as, while it was very easy to read, my interest in it waned about half way through the book. I was intrigued by the premise of Charley being paranoid and convinced that Nancy was Rose and that everyone was conspiring against him, but after he seemed to regain his senses the book was much less interesting. The ending was rather abrupt, and I turned the page expecting to find another chapter, but there was none. While this book made for some excellent discussions in my seminar group, I wasn't very fond of the story itself. 5/10
