I enjoy crime books most of all but dip into other genres now and then. I also re read the classics I have not read in years.
I bought this after I heard good reviews on BBC Radio 4's " A good read" . I was disappointed. It was very slow-moving and too descriptive for me.
of a woman socially beneath the love she desires, a fragile girl, and a man not quite capable of truly loving either of them.
"A n exploration of being human"
As Russian literature is so informative about the darker side of hunaness this amazing Japanese novel explores the paradoxes of love.
