Review – Moon Tiger

Moon Tiger by Penelope LivelyMoon Tiger, Penelope Lively

I don’t know why I originally picked this up: it’s the sort of consciously literary creation that doesn’t normally work for me, and so proved to be the case this time too. The meandering, disconnected narration might’ve been clever, I suppose, but to me, it just got in the way of the story. And the story… well, nothing special as far as my tastes go; full of characters I didn’t really like or root for. Pretty much my nightmare as far as a book goes.

The writing itself is pretty, at times, evocative, though sometimes too consciously so.

Chalk it up to ‘not for me’ and move on…
