really liked it

I have read every Ruth Rendell book ever written. I also enjoy her novels when she writes as Barbara Vine. I rate A Sight for Sore Eyes as her best book. It has a permanent place on my top 26 books of all time. I believe that The Rottweiller gives it a run for its money. Inez, runs an antique store cum block of apartments in London. She pines for her late actor husband and regularly watches reruns of his TV show. The tenants in her building are peculiar to say the least. Rendell’s gift is to make these peculiarities seem plausible. Between Will, Freddie, Zuraida et al, we are drawn into the secret lives of extraordinary characters. Add a serial killer to the mix and you have vintage Rendell. This is a book worth savouring. It will stay with you for days after you finish reading it. Highly recommended.
