Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Whist certainly an acceptable enough read, this did not capture my imagination. The three sisters, all extremely different to each other, were described and constructed well, but too long was spent on giving back-histories, and witnessing each of them wallowing in their own brand of self pity. The development of the characters, which should have been the interesting bit, came late in the novel, by which time each of the character's flaws had been rather laboured, and I felt each of their 'character journeys' were rather hastily crammed into the last quarter of the book. The literary allusions made throughout (particularly by the father), especially to King Lear and his daughters, were novel enough, but again became rather laboured and pretentious by the end.
All in all, worth a read, but expect a long hard read before you get to the worthwhile and really enjoyable bit.
