That would not have Ade for a very nice picture!

I so agree. Tempted to say this is absolutely his best though of course I haven’t read them all.
Do read it Simon! If you know Walpole you will be very happy to see how Maugham is so unsparing with him.
Yes, that's a fair description of Rosie. I love how non-judgemental he is, and how he makes us that way too.
Liz he is so worth reading! Do try him.
Thanks - glad you enjoyed it. Do try him soon
I agree with everything you say Constance. I was not convinced that the identity swap would really have worked but was prepared to suspend my disbelief because the novel was so great. Sad too about Rob’s break with Cassie and hoped for a solution to the old mystery. But I forgive her everything because she is a truly amazing writer.
Great comment! Thanks. Glad we agree on this one. I’m now reading and enjoying In the Woods. Lots to look forward to.

Yes I also read Ali’s review. There’s a great one by Kaggsy on Shiny today!
Simon I plan to give her another shot and C and C will be the top of the list. Glad we agree on this one.
Thanks Susan. I love it too.

Depends on your taste I suppose. I thought the German Garden one was a bit wishy washy (I didn’t finish it) - bt it has many fans! I loved this one as you can see.
Thanks for this Susan. I followed this with The Cat's Table, which I enjoyed though not as much. Then I read the English Patient and, like you, admired it but didn't love it. I think your teacher was probably right abut Warlight being his masterpiece.
Dark Puss I thought I'd replied to your comment on the revi9us post but the reply never appeared. I've posted it now - basically it says that I am pretty certain the artist was a woman! Thanks for the suggestion anyway, and I'm glad you ike the cat

Interesting suggestion. But as far as I remember the artist was a woman!

They are standalones so can be read in any order. Enjoy!
Hmmm - I know it had a tag when I first spotted it but can’t find the original reference.

Do read it. I never thought I’d like this series! Look forward to seeing your review.
I've read quite a few and I'm pretty sure that was one of them!
Thanks for this. It's easy to feel helpless.

Yes I agree about the river scenes, Magic. I think I must read The English Patient! Right now I’m in the middle of The Cats Table, which is described as fiction but obviously autographically based.
I agree about Amsterdam, the whole thing was really well done. Yes do put the Trollope on the list. Barchester novels are still my favourite, though.

Thanks. Yes a huge relief that it’s not a fracture.
