Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and hypnotising prose, 21 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Tomorrow in the Battle Think on Me (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Javier Marias writes in a unique and fascinating manner. His characters are revealed in all their complexity by an uncompromising use of stream-of-consciousness which in lesser hands would be overwhelming but in his capable hands allow a story to be told whilst evoking all of the senses.

This unusual approach is particularly rewarding in this strange tale: the story of a man having an affair with a married woman who suddenly drops dead and leaves him with a series of emotional quandaries as how best to handle the events of the evening and the consequences that follow.

Rich, eloquent and deeply satisfying.
