A Wet Blanket
on 17 December 2014
Every Day is Mother's Day' is an important novel that gives a powerful feeling of despair and psychological illness. 'Vacant Possession' is a dreary continuation of the first novel, with elements of the thriller on a skeleton of improbable coincidences. It should have never been written. I have to wonder why Mantel thought it was necessary. I think she cheapened the first novel by taking away all of its mystery and subtlety.
