  • Great story May 28, 2009
    by mp2dtw

    I loved the older story line and how the book has two narrators. However, this is not great literature. I didn't think the writing was particularly great. Skipping sentences and, in a few cases, paragraphs because the descriptions get dull and excessive is never a good sign. It seems like he was struggling with the more modern story--many aspects did nothing for me. Mr Boyd's writing is good enough, it just needs to be tightened. He seemed to struggle with the last two chapters, bringing the story to a close. That said, I thought it was generally enjoyable.

  • Unrestless Spy Thriller Aug 9, 2007
    by saintb

    I read this book as part of my book club reading list. It was an easy read and didn't tax me too much. The book moves between the past and the here and now the story being told by the daughter of the main protagonist. It was set in England and American during the war although the 'heroine' was orginally russian. In her twilight years the heroine reveals her true identity which sets her off on a detective like trail. Unfortunately, I was not breathlessly turning the pages, the story moved very slowly and was somewhat stereotypical as a spy thriller. The only intrigue was considering the notion of the sexual relationship between the heroine and the main male character. I'm not sure what was restless about the story - in summary a holiday beach read.
