İkinci kez okuyun. Harika bir tatil okudu - gözyaşlarını akıttı. Noel'in verdiği ruhu tüm yıl boyunca sürdürmek ne güzel olurdu. Ailemizin üzerinde çalışması gereken bir şey var.
Patricia Cornwell's books can be extremely technical and sometimes takes two times to understand what is being said or where does this take you in the story. This one just ended,no conclusion. Just ended.
Not my type of book - I didn't even finish reading it!
I felt like the author was really flushing this story out to make the book longer. I got bored with all the side stories and background info he was giving and just skimmed most of the book.
This is the fourth book in the Foresyte Chronicles, the first three published together as The Foresyte Saga. The previous volume ended with the patriarch at the family plot reflecting on the passing of an era. Although this book picks up only 2 years after the end of the previous, it is clear that England has begun a new chapter. There is a sense of directionlessness about the advancement of the plot. Watching the lives of this family, and glimpsing moments in the lives of a few new characters, somewhat peripheral ones, the reader is drawn into the restlessness of the age. It is the 1920s in London. The younger generation has walked away from the cautious restraint of their Victorian ancestors to embrace the abundance and freedom of life. But, rather than feeling satiated and content, they are left with a craving and disorientation that they can’t quite name. The mood jumps off the page and permeates the reader who longs to find some restored meaning in the next installment of the Chronicles.
