Great story, told with humour and rhythm, terse but not compact.

The book itself may be excellent and probably is, but don't waste your money on this version. It is unreadable in kindle format. Some chapters are not there and others default back to the index page after reading a couple of pages.

A perfect edition of theis classic. The resource materials are invaluable for anybody wanting to get inside the mind of Ford and the social issues of the time.

This book was suggested by a widely read member of my book group as a title she has always wanted to read. Altough I'm aware it is considered something of a classic I'm afraid I just couldn't get on with it, for the following reasons.
The narrator is pretty much unreliable as we get conflicting stories of events, and lots of statements of the form "he was the kindest and one of the most unkind of men". Furthermore, time shifts forwards a backwards which makes it still harder to know what is meant to be going on (I'm usually ok with this, but not with an unreliable narrator too!). Also the reader is occasionally addressed directly by the narrator, which I find breaks up my involvement.
Although I read for pleasure, I am always happy for a book to make me work (e.g. I think none linear stories usually work very well), but this book just didn't involve me enough. As I'm not a literature academic, my enjoyment comes from the content of the story rather than its structure, but I completely failed to associate with any of the characters. Everyone comes across as rich, superficial, with no moral compass and completely without any backbone.
By the time I was half way thro' I was really struggling to keep going (I always finish a book) and only when I decided to treat the book as a farce did I begin to get some enjoyment (I appreciate this is probably heresy!!).
Not one for me I'm afraid.

It's a beautiful little volume, slim enough to carry in a pocket or bag …. has a nice look and feel about it, while still being large enough print to read easy. Charming!
