Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 26 July 2012
More novella than novel, the book is set out as six 'Plates' (code for chapters). A different member of Georgie's entourage narrates each 'Plate' and Georgie never speaks for himself.

The narrators are all participants in Georgie's 'shame' as they follow him from Liverpool to the Crimean War. The 'shame' part was interesting and the diseased aspects of the Crimean War were strong. However, this was a low-key read overwhelmed by issues of technique and structure.

Ms Bainbridge is quoted as saying that Master Georgie needs to be read three times to 'appreciate' it, one wonders whether the fault lies with the author rather than the reader.
