    " This book was ineteresting but a bit tedious to read. I love Brookner, she's one of my favorite authors - I always learn new vocab words and I like the slices of life she portrays - yet this story was a bit depressing. Well-written but a bit long. "

    " Sharply observed lives of London sisters Miriam and Beatrice - translator and musician. The passage of time leads to compromise and containment, the setting aside of vague yearnings for a different life, and - ultimately - acceptance of a degree of anxiety and loneliness. A rather sombre read. "

    " Best to read on a rainy day. In London. "

    " The usual Brookner themes and as usual, I enjoyed it. Intelligent observations on quiet, solitary lives. I can imagine some readers wondering what it's all about; others, who have such lives, or have lived part of such lives, would find it recognisable, and bleakly reassuring. "
