Decent Enough Read
on 5 July 2013
I am a HUGE Lesley Pearse fan, especially her historical fiction. I have to say that this book, unfortunately, was not one of my favourites. It was good, but a bit predictable, kind of figured out how it was going to end before I got anywhere near the end!
As always Lesley doesn't fail to bring her books to life, her attention to detail regarding the time period she writes is incredible. You could almost smell the grease of the little back street cafe, the smell of smoke and the noise in the packed out clubs. You could also get an impression of what London looked and sounded like in the mid to late 60's and 70's.
I felt there was unfinished business with some of the characters, for example Raymond and the inheritance that was left by his mother. What happened to Edward, these are things I would have liked to know...but, I don't think there is enough to make a follow up book to answers these and other questions.
It was a decent read, but its one I could put down and not read again, which is unusual for me and any Lesley Pearse book.
