This review is from: Unfaithfully Yours (Hardcover)
Unfaithfully yours Sits at the top of my list for one of my best books that I have read this year. Very truthfully I have found Nigel Williams novel Unfaithfully Yours a brilliant page turner. I have read novels that mostly consist of letters that are written from one person to another and in my view some novels that have been written in this format style make the best kind of reading. Each letter tells the story about who they are and why they writing to each other.
Unfaithfully yours is a story told by letters from Elizabeth Price to a private detective Roland Orlando Gibbons. Elizabeth Price has been a classics school teacher in a public school for twenty-five years, and married to successful barrister Gerald Price where they live in a large five bedroom house in Putney. Elizabeth and Gerald have two small children and over the years they have both just grown apart. Elizabeth writes to private detective Roland O gibbons to express her concerns that she thinks that her husband may be having sex with someone. But Elizabeth is not quite sure who with, and to make matters worse Elizabeth thinks her husband may be involved with females or males or a combination of the two. Gerald used to go to a boarding school where homosexuality was more or less compulsory for the younger boys. Elizabeth tells Roland that she does not want photographic recordings of him committing adultery but she does want information about what her husband is up to.
Barrister Gerald price and Michael Larner a retired BBC producer, late of the National History Unit exchange letters to each other and Dr Wise for the Putney Guardian receives letters by Mary Dimmock. Top marks to Nigel Williams with the twists and creating the ability for readers laugh and gasp and adding shocking moments to shock the readers.
I highly recommend Unfaithfully yours because Nigel Williams is in my view a very good story teller and he has thought every character through making sure readers enjoy every situation the character is in. It is clear that Nigel has upper class to ensure exciting characters for all readers to enjoy.
As this story is one my best that I have read it will stay with me for a long time. I will definitely be looking up the other seven novels Nigel has published. I am also so much looking forward to all future novels by Nigel Williams.I brought my copy from love reading, readers can buy this book from love reading or amazon.
