Once it got going, was very engaging.
What did you like most about The Water Meadows?
I liked that the story was spread over such a long period of time, you really got to know a lot about the characters lives, rather than just a snapshot.
What other book might you compare The Water Meadows to, and why?
It reminds me of the Lesley Pearce Sagas (although not as good).
Which character – as performed by Eve Karpf – was your favourite?
Carensa, she seemed to be truest and best represented by the Narrator. The different accents were attempted with conviction so that each character had their own 'voice'.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book didn't emotionally affect me, it felt like fiction, at no point did I believe the characters actually might have existed, however, I enjoyed the easy escapism.
Any additional comments?
At first I wasn't sure about this book, however, once the family had moved, it became much more engaging. The book wasn't particularly 'blockbusting' but it trotted along and maintained interest and I found I cared more and more about the characters as the book went on. The quantity of affairs was quite amusing, and the sympathy on the characters who had them but it was a good easy read with an unchallenging plot that I enjoyed.
