Jane Feaver gets better and better!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Inventory of Heaven (Hardcover)
This is Jane Feaver's third book and her most accomplished, intelligent and sustained yet. In over 300 pages she creates increasingly vivid characters with an intimate, perceptive and compassionate understanding of their remoteness and sometimes physical isolation.
It's a serious, thoughtful book with many comic insights and a marvellous tightness and precision to her prose. She has a sharp eye for detail and there's a 'poetic' vividness to much of her writing which can be savoured for its rightness and originality.
This is a seriously good, satisfying, enjoyable read with a subtly developed narrative force - and best read in a few days with some concentration rather than bittily.
