Wonderful writing. Succinct and spare. The ending was uplifting (literally and figuratively).

Exactly what it said on the tin - new book and expedite delivery, sooner than expected. Book is great, sparked interesting discussions at our Book Club. I recommend it for any book club or individual reader

In fairness to Julys people it was always going to be a struggle as most readers like me would be European, but to add to this Gordimers complex style of jumbing words sentences and scenarios makes this book almost impossible to enjoy reading. Having said that the book does conjur very strong images of how life is for the people in Africa of all colours and also how in this scenario that Gordimer conjurs up how they can change so quickly. all in all a challenging book that offers a satisfactory reward in finishing it but not with enjoyment coupled with it.

For me this story, like others of the time, suggested an apocalyptic end of the apartheid era in South Africa. It may still happen, however the Nelson Mandela transition did smooth the change over. Characters are reminiscent of books like @The Admirable Crighton'. A complex story told in complex sentences, suggesting thought processes rather than true dialogue narrative.

Ok for literature students I guess, not my kind of book.
