really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, bookgroup
Read from February 02 to 09, 2012

Funny, claustrophobic, painful at times...strange to think about the boarding house society, something that I suppose doesn't really exist anymore. Is there a modern equivalent? And those characters--Thwaites with his horrendous Troth talk (I'll have to watch myself in the coming days), the Lieutenant and his whisky, and the horrendously manipulative Vicky. I guess they are a bit one-sided, but I didn't mind.
