surprising book, not quite in her usual ironic self, but then she was older then, but still sparky & giving a non-guessable ending..Long Live her books (I nearly have then all!) Happy CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL! Gabrielle or whatever you like to call me, I have many names!
Pointless book, that felt like a trudge despite it's brevity. Potentially great: 5 people on an island, clash of personalities, smothering intensity etc etc. But actually just dull. Owner murdered - oh no he isn't. The end. For a more unhinged, better Spark, try something like 'The Driver's Seat'.
This is a German version. Amazon and Book Repository did terrible job of differentiating English from German versions. And BD refused responsibility. Amazon apparently ignorant of what they were doing.
