really liked it

Finally finished! Difficult read, as most modernist novels are. Greatest descriptions of the trenches/WWI i've read in fiction. On the whole, so so british in its repression and honor and duty, especially on the part of Tietjens. Valentine is sort of blah, not my favorite. But Sylvia ia pretty fantastic to hate. All in all, glad i read the whole tetralogy.
