Repetitive, boring and anti-climatic! Not what the synopsis promised!
on 17 January 2016
Bought this book based on the synopsis' high promise of boozing pubs and murder. However, this book failed to make me feel like I was in the pub environment, nor did it grip or captivated me. My will to want to read on soon ceased, as several times George nearly kills Netta, yet every time he decides not to-which becomes at best, repetitive and boring. Without spoiling it, in the end, after all the built up expectation of the final deed, we are given one measlysentence to describe the act. Thoroughly disappointing after all that reading! Cannot understand why this is a modern classic, would never read from this author again!
