Beautiful Writing at the Expense of much Plot,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Every Eye (Paperback)
As reviewers both on Amazon and those quoted on the book cover have said, this is a beautifully written book. For me, though, it seemed to be written by an intellectual writing in a knowingly literary style at the expense of much plot.
Hatty, the heroine, recounts her life both past and present, seamlessly crafted by Isobel English from one to the other and back again. Although Hatty seems real, the other characters remain rather shadowy.
I found I didn't really mind too much what happened to the characters, but I did enjoy the writing.
Perhaps if you particularly love reading for the sake of the beauty of the language, this book might be for you.
