The Razor's Edge,
This review is from: The Razor's Edge (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
This book was our reading group choice. I had read many of Somerset Maughan's short stories many years ago and loved them. It was so refreshing to return to the use of good English throughout the novel. Maughan was an excellent story teller. All the characters were well rounded, interesting and believable. Elliot was such a snob but very amusing. The themes of materialism v spirituality are still very relevant today. We are given choices in life and it was interesting to see how all the characters developed as a result of their choices. It also described vividly a way of life that is no longer with us. A really excellent novel!
