This review is from: Brideshead Revisited: The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder (Paperback)
If you haven't read it yet then i really envy you. I have read this book over and over again and guarantee you are in for a treat.
The writing is beautifully crafted, as in most Waugh books, but here you have the bonus of a compelling story. As usual the author's style will carry you dreamily along in an enchanted haze, before bringing you up short with some barbed comment to wake you from your reverie. The fist in the velvet glove.
If you saw the TV series you know what to expect..i just hope the forthcoming film does it justice...but neither can ever hope to match the scenes which are painted in your imagination with such vivacity.
