Our book club in Dubai just read this and we were all looking forward to reading what promised to be a gripping read.
However - this was our feedback:
PARK LANE - most of us had high hopes for this book but were really disappointed by Osborne's lack of depth and fluidity. All of us felt short changed and often confused as to what had actually happened to supposed key characters at certain points in the book. The book scored between 3 and 5 so a real disappointing first novel for an author who has had bestselling non fiction books in the past. (Helen recommended we read Tracy Chevalier's Fallen Angel as it was set in the same time period but much stronger.)
4 out of 10 from me. Disappointed. :(
