Of It's Time Perhaps?
on 23 May 2012
Let me first say I stopped reading half way through, so I dont really feel qualified to give a balanced review. But on the other hand I did read a book and a half...
Dont get me wrong this isn't a bad trilogy, but it is, imho, not a good one. Strangely it did nothing for me. I felt it wasn't particularly evocative of it's time, nor did I think the characters were really up to much. I would have almost certainly enjoyed the fairly mundane storyline more if this was the case.
Maybe I was expecting too much or maybe I'm missing something. I hope I'm missing something, but for me this missed its target and I'm bemused how this can be described as one of the lesser known classics of English literature.
So untouched was I by this that I don't intend ever going back to try to re-read it, unless someone can explain to me what I'm missing.
