Ok, I have to do this. I find Coming Home trashy yet really compelling. I read it over and over when I'm sick, when I'm on a plane, when I feel terrible for whatever reason, and it's always escapist and comforting. Mostly it's that I'm compelled to read anything about WWII Britain; since this is so long and so much happens, I'm compelled to read it over and over again. At the same time I have some major problems with various business such as 1. ridiculous stereotypical characteristics/behavior, particularly in Edward. Oh my god! How could anyone be inured to crap like that, no matter what their cultural upbringing? and 2. the use of the word "delectable" more than once throughout the book. No one is a good enough writer to pull that off.
