    1 thought on “Full House”

    1. I would like to line up the characters in Full House and turn the garden hose on them. Silly, contrived, not a red-blooded person in the lot. When the small boy explodes with violence, kicks his little dog, clenches his fists, and talks wildly about killing, the adult characters are awed by his beauty and "passion." I think the reader is supposed to be struck by the characters' endless introspection and lack of vigor. Fading and tired stock, and all that. I just was bored. One of my favorite nov [...]

    2. This is the first book I've read by Molly Keane and I liked how she introduced the main characters to her readers.She doesn't judge her characters, and let the reader like or hate them.I absolutely loath Olivia, the mother who acts as if she was the elder sister of her children and doesn't see their hostility to her. She doesn't seem to care about anything but her garden and her servants.The most interesting characters are the governess who at first seems shy and dull,but who might be happier at [...]

    3. I loved it. Lots of people won't. People who have got too grown up and sensible. They've lost the capacity to enter a world created by the writer without messily putting themselves and their opinions right into the middle of it. God forbid all characters must be acceptable to the majority! The way to read it is to walk into its world quietly and observe. There's lots in there. It was refreshing to be in Keane's world, seeing things through her eyes, gleaning what she has learnt about life, heari [...]

    4. I liked it but with reservations. Some of the plot lines were a bit contrived and the plot twist that was the book's turning point was predictable and trite. The characters were eccentric but believable. I think that poor bearded Miss Pierson was my favorite and I was pleased to see her come out of her shell and quietly assert herself. Hope she found love with Nick eventually but Keane didn't reward her with that even though she deserved it.

    5. I wanted to like this book. I did. But I knew after the first chapter that it was an impossible task. I wanted to dope slap each and every one of the characters for their selfishness and cruelty and indifference. This being the first MJ Farrell book that I have read I forced my way through it. It may be the last book of he that I read. Gads, those are hours I cannot get back.

    6. Un peu déçue par ce livre. J'ai beaucoup aimé l'ambiance et l'écriture par contre l'intrigue ne m'a pas intéressée.
