4.0 out of 5 stars Devastating, 16 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Story of Lucy Gault (Paperback)
Such a melancholy novel,I did'nt turn the pages as keenly as I did in order to know what was coming next, but to drench myself in it's soulful prose- 'circumstances had shaped an emptiness in her life'- wrote William Trevor.This gloomy theme is constant throughout the book. We see the title character, Lucy, almost suspended in time, encased in a bewildering , but believable set of circumstances set in motion when she was a small child. Much of what follows is lacking in what you might call momentum , but it does'nt matter, you are too wrapped up in the story of Lucy Gaults' narrow little world to notice, it paces along comfortably .
It is intriguing, like ' The Children O f Dynmouth' by the same author,intriguing and original. Might suit the introspective type.
