Too Sentimental & Implausible for me
on 10 March 2017
I had to read this for a book club group so it wasn't my choice and I decided to watch the film. I didn't enjoy this book and didn't engage with the characters. Its hard to expand without spoilers but if you want some easy escapism this might be for you. I prefer novels and films with layers of meaning which this didn't provide. It got a lukewarm reception from the group too. I'm told this wasn't one of Spark better novels and I didn't enjoy the film although Paul Newman is always worth watching.
