    " A little more happened in this Brookner novel than in the last I read, but I still wanted to shake the protagonist out of her passivity. Passive suffering seems to be a theme of hers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 3/13/2013

    " Anita Brookner writes beautiful prose. I enjoyed her writing more than the story she told. "

    " Loving Brookners books as I do, Bay of Angels was no exception. The prose is concise, the plot prissily British! Enjoyed the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 9/11/2012

    " Not so great. Depressing kinda book, though it has a bit of hope at the end. Now I need to read something more lighthearted. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen | 2/23/2012

    " If this is not as depressing as Brookner's other books, I don't know if I can carry on reading them. Dear lord, the characters bring you down but "Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way." I have forgotten that characteristic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Addie Stalk | 12/8/2011

    " How youthful beliefs in fairy-tales are replaced by the demands of real life and, in the end, the acceptance of what life has to offer. Ms. Brookner is one of my favorite authors who can make extraordinary stories about ordinary life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M. Baradi | 10/9/2011

    " Again, it's not so much the plot with Brookner, but the prose. It shines. "

    " Way too dark and maudlin. "

    " i found the characters and story hard to relate to. i don't think addressing sexism and feminism with these weak, flimsy characters works, not if she's making the point i hope she's trying to make. "
