A great story, couldn't put it down.,
This review is from: The Spell (Paperback)
OK, I'm a big fan of Alan Hollinghurst.
I bought my copy of this book in the Oxfam shop in Chichester last Friday and it took only a few days to finish it.
The characters in this book brought the story to life for me. Some of course have questioned what the story is actually about, but for those of us who have lived in London and been out on the gay scene, partied and generally lived live on our terms not on the morals as prescribed by the Daily Mail, this book captures those times. Albeit some time ago, for this book was published in 1998 - at least my copy was - just at the time when I was leaving London after many years great years of partying in and around London's West End's pubs and clubs.
A really great and enjoyable read.
