Coronation Summer by Angela Thirkell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
High hopes, dashed on the rocks of my literary fastidiousness and capriciousness. I really wanted to be enthralled by this book, and instead was bored by the plodding plot and occasional ornate and over flowery choice of words. I guess I was hoping for a more lighthearted book. There were some bright spots that flared up every so often; I liked Fanny's bitchy asides about her friend Emily. There needed to be more of that. The whole book reminded me a bit of Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot, an old favorite of mine; but not enough to make me like this book.
