2.0 out of 5 stars Non-novel, 7 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Loving; Living; Party Going (Picador books) (Paperback)
This was, as a novel, very boring. A one-off picture of what in a previous generation would have been called bright young things. They were stranded in the station hotel at Victoria Station because of fog, in the late forties/early fifties; very lttle happened and what did happen was uninteresting in the extreme. It was a good picture of their bland lives but why bother to write it all? We read it for our book group, and towards the end of our discussion I realised that it would have made a much better stage play than a novel - it was very mannered and stagey.

Give yourself a good time - go and watch some paint dry or some snails mating instead.
