I gave this book two stars instead of one because I'll take partial responsibility for not liking it. I purchased it because the synopsis sounded interesting (I love London) and it was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. Why? It reminds me of high school English class when we were supposed to see the symbolism instead of reading a book literally. To me a tree is a tree, not some deep rooted something-er-other reaching it's arms for the sunlight. I'll finish it; but, only because I don't want to feel like I totally wasted my money.

I cannot believe Alsion Lurie was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for thie book. First of all the story is ridiculous and and the characters unimaginative. The foul language is unnecessary and tells me that the author has little skill. With all of the wonderful, descriptive words in the English language available and she resorts to some of the most base and offensive words possible. I was under the impression that winning a Pulitzer prize meant you had talent; not so. Do not waste your money or your time on this book.

Not a mind-bender, but a funny, enjoyable read. Plus, two stories in one.

This book elegantly presents the connected stories of several people during a short space in thier lives. It is a simple tale but one that reminds us about what is really important. Alison Lurie is able to do this by showing and not telling. A modest thing but one which few writers are able to achieve. I was deeply moved. Well done Alison Lurie!
