Absolutely the Place

Took me a while to finish this novel, but not because it’s not riveting.

I was savoring each chapter.

Maggie O’Farrell’s ability to introduce multiple characters on a page and pull out their souls for the reader to examine? A review quote from ‘The Washington Times’ calls the author ‘impressive’ and ‘perhaps masterly’. Please trust me. Maggie O’Farrell is beyond masterly. There is no perhaps. None.

From Ireland to London to Hollywood–from the 1970’s (and far earlier) to the 21st century, I relished this read/ride and will miss and continue to think about the characters. As I do with the extraordinary ‘Hamnet’.

Hope it’s the same for you.

Yours in memorable novels,
