5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it!, 8 Jun. 2010
This review is from: A Vision of Loveliness (Paperback)
I caught a bit of this being read on Radio 4, and the characters were so inviting that I had to get a copy of the book and find out what happened to them. Jane, or 'Janey', as she restyles herself in the story, is desperate to escape suburbia and lead a more exciting life amongst the bright lights of the city. She falls in with Suzy St John, a girl who uses all her feminine wiles to support her exotic lifestyle, and leaps headlong into a similar existence of drinking, dancing, and occasional seduction. However, in this world of seedy glamour in 1960s London, Janey is sharp and witty (and, rather delightfully, a bit of a bitch). You find yourself liking her all the more for never getting too caught up in the trappings of her new life, but also for playing the game as well as well next girl. When the speed at which they are living finally catches up with them, you root for Janey to come out unscathed. I won't spoil the ending for you, but I would love to know where she goes next... It was a brilliant book, and I can't wait to read another book by Louise Levene.
