A good shaggy dog story, 29 Nov. 2000
There is no doubt that this is a good book. But I am not sure that it is all that moving. (It may be if you are moved by little things.) It is simple tale well told but I must say it reminded me of a shaggy dog story. Lots of journey to end up back where you started. Maybe that was the whole point! If so then it worked. Read it. Enjoy it! Don't expect anything to profound- unless you think that Victor Meldrew's comment on being an old person in an age of decadence is profound.
