Rezension bezieht sich auf: On Chesil Beach (Taschenbuch)
This is an affecting description of misunderstandings between a naive young couple on their wedding night; told alternately from their parallel points of view leading the reader to feel sympathy for both. The story is set just before the supposed love revolution and will have resonances for older readers, but I think most people will empathize with the couple's anxieties. The writing is wonderfully fluent in evoking feelings and left me wishing that this short book had been longer. In the hardback edition the print is a good size and very clear with wider than average line-spacing -- a boon for reading in poor light. I would also recommend reading The Fates by Tino Georgiou, if you haven't already. A truly superb novel.
