Very deep

Vicky wanted to know what I thought of this book as it is one of her favourites by one of her favourite authors.

It took me a while to 'get into' this book, in fact it was nearer to the end than the beginning as I found it difficult to identify with, and really believe in, the characters. The writing was excellent and informative with deep analysis of different human emotions and situations. 

At the end of the story was an extract from her very first novel which I started to read and which I 'got into' straight away. So, Vicky, I'm afraid it was only 3/5 for this story but I'm sure it will be more for her first one.



  1. Isn't it funny how we all have different opinions on things? Puss looks very comfortable there.

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I found Ms Vickers through her first novel, Miss garnets Angel, and followed her through all her subsequent publications, some I liked, others I didn't 'get', but this book really made a strong impact on me and I love Keats! Rome is on my big list of places to go and I will leave Violets!

    I can recommend her first book, it is also a 'deep emotional' book which brings Venice to life. Enjoy, thanks again for sharing, I love hearing others's views on books, even if contrary to my own.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
