Read for a book club. I enjoyed it, and it was a good subject for the club (lots to talk about), but I found it rather over long. I also had issues with the behaviour of some of the characters as unbelievable. For example, the main character Marlow works in mental health, but doesn't slip into inappropriate behaviour over a client's case, he leaps into it in a way I find unlikely.
I did think it was well written, and liked the slipping between time periods.
