5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, yet simple, 18 May 2009
This review is from: Casting Off: Cazalet Chronicles Book 4 (Paperback)
Casting Off is the beautiful, and simply written conclusion to the saga of the Cazalet family. It is best to read the preceding three books first, as reading them out of order will only serve to ruin plots and increase confusion!

It shows how even the simplist privations of the war years have affected the entire family, and how the end of the war is seen not as an ending, but as a new beginning. Edward and his daughter Louise use it as an opportunity to consider the future of their loveless marriages; Clary to pursue her writing career; Zoe and Rupert to start again with one another.

The three girls, who in a sense have been at the heart of the series since The Light Years - Polly, Clary and Louise - are all setting off on vastly different paths on the road to happiness, often coming to surprising conclusions along the way.

It is an excellent conclusion to the series, as it ties off many loose ends, yet leaves the reader wondering just what happened next.

And joy upon joy there is another book due out, so you WILL see what happens next! Agree with your review and am now just about to finish Casting Off, so will be hanging on in anticipation for book number five in November! Highly recommend them all, fascinating to read about the war from the childrens point of view in the previous books too, and brought back memories of post war rations!
