Couldn¿t get into this book. I know it is considered a classic but I quickly decided it was not worth the time or effort. It¿s about a bunch of Bright Young Things in London in 1938 who are about to catch a train and go to the Continent for a house party¿..when the fog sets in ¿..and no one¿s going anywhere. They are all in a muddle about the arrangements and situation, and each seems as vapid and inconsistent as the next one ¿ indeed the characters seem indistinguishable.
