5.0 out of 5 stars Sparse, elegant writing makes Fitzgerald always a joy., 28 April 2002
This review is from: The Bookshop (Paperback)
As with many of her books, you feel as if you have stepped into other people's lives, just like in a dream when you arrive in a situation and watch it unfold. The action is based around the attempt of a middle aged, quiet, village-living woman to open a bookshop.
This so gentle aspiration unleashes genteele vicious activity eminating from the local lady of the manor.
You know the slim volume means the book will not last long, and you want it to go on, but when you ahve finished it you know that she was right in making you step back out of their lives and into your own at just that point.
Fitzgerald's characters are always in some kind of private turmoil, whilst carrying on with day to day living, keeping up appearances. It make syou think long and hard about the life lived behind all our ordinary facades.

Exactly! Florence Green is like Anne Elliot in fiction. Quiet and courageous. Appreciated by a few discerning people and trodden over by the powerful and the careless in this small-town narrative.
