I enjoyed reading the book
on 18 April 2017
I enjoyed reading the book. Especially when reading the first page which relates to an area of London where I was born and raised. in fact the Jewish synagogue mentioned is no more that 400 yards from where I was born.
Sebastian Faulks must do an incredible amount of research into his books. I found some of the detail in A Week In December too detailed and therefore became somewhat confusing. I also found that some of the individuals stories in the book were far more interesting than others. I felt that the ending where all of the various stories come together was somewhat rushed.
In essence it was a book that I did enjoy but it was not a book that I couldn't bear to put down.
