It is World War II and Captain Charles Ryder reflects upon his time at Oxford during the '20s and a world now changed. As a lonely student, Charles was captivated by the outrageous and decadent Sebastien Flyte, and invited to spend time at the family home: Brideshead. Charles becomes infatuated with its eccentric, aristocratic occupants, especially Sebastien's remote and distant sister, Julia. However, he begins to realise his own spiritual and social distance, and in turn discovers a crueler world, where duty and desire, faith and happiness can only ever be conflicting forces.

    " So unexpectedly riveting, with so many heartbreaks and triumphs mixed together in a swirling pot of Catholic guilt. My first by this author - looking forward to more. "

    " This book is a bit too much work for the reward. There are definitely good aspects to the storyline and character development, plus some good writing and lines in sporadic locations, but its simply just not worth the effort in a world were there are way more indisputably great books available than you could possibly even read in a lifetime.

About the Author
Author Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was born October 28, 1903 in London, England. After short periods as an art student and schoolmaster, he devoted himself to travel and to the writing of novels. His novels are unusually highly wrought and precisely written. Those written before 1939 may be described as satirical. During World War II his writing took a more serious and ambitious turn. Waugh also wrote travel books.
