This review is from: The Sea House (Paperback)
Ok, I'll admit, English literature graduates are unlikely to hold lengthy discussions on this novel..... But at last, this is a well-written, reasonably intelligent contemporary novel with an actual, old-fashioned PLOT and closed ending.
And, again, unlike many recent novels, the writing doesn't draw unnecessary attention to itself - it just lets us get lost in the narrative. Freud has also done some research into her subject, which gives this book a satisfyingly credible feel.
This novel is a relief after reading the over-written, over-self-conscious novels churned out by many supposedly intellectual, new authors. If you like to read books for relaxation and entertainment but find most bestsellers boring, then this novel is truly recommended.
