A turkey in rather elegant tinsel
on 11 September 2005
There's little doubt that Grimsley has a drippingly elegant turn of phrase, but there's only so many ways you can wrap up a contrived plotline about two characters which, by the end of the book, you really couldn't give two hoots about. Ironically the supporting characters in the book are far more rounded and understandable. This is a contrived piece of tear-jerkery and, all things considered, I'd have prefered to have stayed in that plush airport terminal bar at the beginning and let them get on with all their hand-wringing out of my earshot!
