really liked it
Read in March, 2012

This is the second book of hers I've read and I still don't know what I make of Penelope Fitzgerald. Offshore won the Booker Prize and feels much more skillful and human than Human Voices. The writing is very good and very subtle, with a disjointed quality that fooled me into thinking I wasn't being moved. Perhaps it's a slow burn, because it's been months since I read it and looking back, I see that I really liked it.
