Easy to follow (in fact reading after the English Patient
on 8 May 2016
Although can't help comparison with the unforgettable English Patient, this book stands as tall in literature history, in my opinion magical from the opening lines. Easy to follow (in fact reading after the English Patient, and recognising the style certainly helps in understanding) the magical book only more fully. Not always pleasant or easy reading, but that is the writers obvious style. At times I felt myself wondering why a producer has not made a film of it. After the world-wide success of the previously mentioned, (am afraid all of Ondaatje's works will be compared to that one) a film, with the right actors would be wonderful indeed.
