Yes, the author has a big vocabulary and can use esoteric terms. Yes, she knows 20th century history and historical characters as well as Hollywood stars. The plot is trite. the writing is not reader-friendly. Who was the author trying to impress? I believe she wrote this book to impress Ian McEwan. I wonder if they're still together. this is not a book with any appeal. I read a great deal. I have university degrees. I know several languages. Believe me, I have not read very many books that I have disliked this much. Don't waste your time and/or money on this book. There are too many GOOD books available to waste your time on this pretentious tome. Eeew..
