An odd book. Glad I'm discussing this with my book group as I'm not sure what to think of it right now.

Athena Hi Kate. This was my first Waugh and I only found it OK so it put me off of him for awhile. It'll be interesting to read a full review of what you thought of it. Cheers.

Nose in a book (Kate) Hi Athena. I didn't enjoy it as much as Vile Bodies but it actually stands up very well to analysis. Waugh was a very clever writer. I think it's worth giving Waugh another go. I intend to read Brideshead Revisited and Scoop at least.

Athena Yes, I do intend to read BR eventually as well, and it has been a long time since I read Dust so it I'll look forward to Waugh when I do.
