EPUB EBook by Elizabeth Jane Howard
EBook DescriptionWhew - EPUB it's been a long month. Casting Off EPUB EBook Just finished book 4 of the Cazalet Chronicle, and book 5, written ten years later, is in the mail. I've never read anything quite like this saga, perhaps because I don't often read books in a series ( with the exception of the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon).The books are not at all exciting, especially, in fact, they often read almost like diary entries, from the perspective of many family members, as well as a few servants and friends. That said, I found myself picking up the books a couple of times a day, every day for the last month or so, and reading in bed every night. Right now, I'm impatiently waiting the arrival of the last book, and know I'll be sorry to reach the end.
The first 4 books follow the upper middle class Cazalet family from the beginning of WWII in Britain 1939, till a few years post war. We get to know the family- warts and all, their intimate thoughts and what they let the world know about them. Some are more likable than others, and some change more than other over the years. I don't want to say much more about it, except that I'm giving it 5 stars because of the pleasure I derived each day returning to these books, like visiting with old friends, as time went on. I quite like British fiction, and am planning to read more generalional sagas, starting with Poldark (first book in the mail...)
