I had been looking for this book for ages to read. I hadn't found it somewhere when the film was released so I went and watched it. It got me even more intrigued of reading the novel.
Now that I finally I found it I read it in 2 hours non-stop. It is truly one of the best novels I have ever read: Close's foreword, Moore's style, the descriptions, the plot, the characters.... Everything is so well and carefully written. The only reason I will rate this 4/5 stars is that I didn't like the fact that is was so short a novel. Not that Moore leaves any questions when you finish the book, I just think there could be much more going on.

P.S. English is not my mother tongue so pardon me if I have made mistakes.

Such an incredible story and so beautifully written. George Moore was such a wonderful writer and his works deserve wider appreciation. I can recommend 'Esther Waters' if this one left you wanting more.

interesting story about a woman living as a man; writing style is slightly off somehow and the ending very downbeat, not a lot of drama to the story
