4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing read, 2 Dec 2010
This review is from: The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life (Paperback)
I did worry when I started reading this book that it was going to turn out to be a little trite, but as the book progressed I realised that the author is very perceptive and is able to hone in on human pathos and emotion in a particularly articulate way. Each character was carefully depicted, each one different and well portrayed, and you could clearly recognise the individuals in a living, breathing way. I will say that I was perhaps slightly disappointed in the ending, but I cannot go into why without spoiling the experience for somebody else. Anyhow, this is a personal opinion and another person might love the ending. It was satisfying in the case of Laura, but not so real for me in the case of some of the other characters. Either way, it is well worth reading, and I shall be interested to read other books of his.
