4.0 out of 5 stars Love Returned?, 10 Aug. 2009
This review is from: No Fond Return Of Love (VMC) (Paperback)
I think the previous review is terribly unfair. Yes 'No Fond Return of Love' is not the most laugh out loud, funny of Pym's books (that accolade belongs to 'Jane and Prudence'. But it is a touching and sensitively drawn portrait of single intelligent women (who are no longer in the first flush of youth) living in post war London. If that makes it sound boring - it is not. It is a beautiful book showing a rarely depicted side of London. I would say reading it is akin to listening to a new and difficult album by your favourite group/artist. On first listening you are not sure about the departure from the 'old' sound. After a couple more plays - you wonder why you did not love it immediately - and it is now your favourite of their work. A book to be savoured.
Most recommended, but not for those with short attention spans - like the first reviewed you may be disappointed!
