The characters in this book were very well developed, but that's really the only positive thing I have to say. I had previously read Penelope Lively's book 'Consequences' and enjoyed it, so I decided to read some of her other books. This one sounded interesting, but I found it slow, boring, and not worth my time.
THis book will stay with me for awhile I'm sure. I loved it. As it unfolds much is learned by those in the photograph and the person who took it. It's a lesson in "why didn't I pay more attention at the time". I will be seeking out many more of Ms. Lively's books.
Extremely well written novel, and I was captivated throughout by the way the characters were all portrayed as interconnected. I can't say enough about Penelope Lively's writing - it is pure, intelligent literature, and at the same time entertaining and thought-provoking.
Ever wonder what the people you love do when you're not around? This book examines this issue using the vehicle of a photograph. The author uses the word "feckless" alot. British Author.
I didn't love this book. I found it to drag on and be a little slow. I enjoyed the last 4 chapters the most - they kept my attention.
