« Three Discoveries Made Using Library Thing | Main | It was a sound with halitosis »

You make it sound like Brideshead Revisited re-written by a computer.


Actually, Andrew Davies (see the Bleak House interview), who is adapting TLoB for the BBC, says that, yes, it is indeed Brideshead Revisited. Only, I'd say, without the flickering faith at the end...


I love your book reviews. I read reviews so rarely, it's a bit of an eye-opener. I also love the fact that you do it on your blog; it seems almost a contradiction to have such a polished piece in a "diary."
Did you start publishing these on the blog for the pure pleasure of it, or is it a way to keep in practice for more professional outlets?


This is the best review I've read on this book (and I've read many!). Very intelligent comments.
