Daphne du Maurier does a fantastic job of writing a beautiful life story for a central character who is essentially a high functioning sociopath.

From a young age it is clear that Julius doesn't care for others he is completely self centred and his only concern in life is Julius, while this means he can become a highly successful business man it leaves his personal life in a mess. Not that he cares. Julius is a highly unlikeable character and you cant help wishing he will get his comeuppance.

The strength of this novel lies in du Maurier's poetic writing and her beautiful descriptions of the places Julius finds himself in.
