5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read, 14 Nov 2005
This review is from: An Inspector Calls (Heinemann Plays For 14-16+) (Hardcover)
This book is a suprisingly good read for a play. The characters in this book are written under finese, you will find yourself relating to each of them; An inspector does indeed call around, investigating the death of a woman; as the story unfolds you are exposed to a world of deceit, betrayal, and social intolerence. It is an extremely well crafted book, plot twists are aplenty - its core ideas are representation of the time at which the book was set, the ideas of socialism and capitlism, money and love. In the end it is the combined act of each and every family member that seems to lead to the woman's demise. Each one of the family ended up affecting the woman in unimaginable ways - and only after recalecting, do the family peice together how they were involved (pushed along by the inspector), the true essence of the inspector is revealed - how he represents the guilt ridden voice in the back of your head, the final part of the story chilling in itself...when the inspector leaves, the phone rings, the police tell Mr Birling that they are sending an inspector, to ask some questions as they have just found a woman dead...
