Customer Review

on 9 September 2013
Of Barbara Pym's later novels, this strikes me as most like her earlier ones. It still has the elegiac elements of "Quartet in Autumn" but manages to include characters as absurd as some of those in the early books. Overall, it's an enjoyable read; but it seems to finish very abruptly, almost as if it were an unfinished novel.

One major gripe with the Kindle edition is the appalling proof-reading/spell checking. Given this is a paid-for edition from a major publisher, it really is unacceptable. Perhaps Amazon ought to introduce more stringent quality standards?
