Swimming Home

This is the best of this years Booker short list outside of Hillary Mantel's historic victory. This novel starts rather pretentiously but finally wins the reader over with its wicked wit, icy cool characters and cinematic narrative. Stay with it - it's worth it!

unexpected pleasure

What a lyrical and poetically written story. Vivid characters thrown together in what was almost an Agatha Christie setting - an isolated house in France with a very small cast of characters. And an unexpected ending which I had to play again. Highly recommended.
