The Good Soldier - a sarcastic title, or maybe not.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Soldier (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
The writing is superb, the insights into the female psyche are utterly convincing (to this man, anyway), and the device of the unreliable narrator is effective. The theme is sex and infidelity and its punches are not pulled - one or two of the characters are sentimental but the novel most definitely is not.
The problem for the reader is that the book must be read slowly but to stop one getting disorientated a certain pace is required. The answer may be to read it in not less than hourly sessions on at least a daily basis, or to retread it soon after finishing it the first time.
