I really couldn't believe how terrible and pointless this novel was. The beginning was so good and every sign seemed to be pointing to delightful novel, but then it all just petered out. The heroine was insipid and dull. She asked the same questions over and over and had no witty conversation whatsoever with the hero. Two whole chapters are spent on a idoitic house while the characters themselves are never fully developed. I still am amazed I finished the book. Here's some advice: stick with A Town Like Alice. In fact, I consider it amazing that A Town Like Alice is one of the best books I've ever read, and that A Far Country is one of the worst. And both are by the same Author! It's almost too incredible to believe. Ok, perhaps I'm a little dramatic, but it was a very bad book. Sorry Nevil.
