I'm now half way through this and must say I'm finding it really ponderous. So far, none of the characters is very engaging, with the possible exception of Jenny the tube driver, and I've yet to stumble upon the 'plot'. The strongest impression I have is Faulks's use of the novel as a way to vicariously express his own prejudices. I've rarely stopped reading a book before the end but in this case I'm very tempted!
Does it improve?
