Bought 21 Aug 2007 – The Works

Started this in Tunisia, read it on the journey home and this week at home/work. I’m going to pass it on to a friend who’s going to Morocco, so it can be released in N Africa after all.

This was wonderful – engaging and involving, an excellent, involved story and I don’t know why I haven’t read it before. It was a good bookend to Middlemarch, featuring another set of intertwined families and speculation about wills. I felt a creeping sympathy for Soames – we’re not meant to like him, are we?

I have another edition with the next 3 in it (I’m counting these as 3 books as you can get them separately) and Wyldtwo has the 3 after that – with a TBR like mine and Ring Build-Up, I’m going to be strong and not read them… yet!
