Arthur and George: A Novel by Julian Barnes
Arthur and George: A Novel

Dvora, November 6, 2006

I bought the book while on a trip to France when I was running out of reading material and where there was little to choose from in English. I had never heard of it (or of Julian Barnes) and had no idea what it was about except for the short description on the back cover that talked about two men who lived worlds apart but were brought together.

I thought the story unfolded slowly and beautifully. I was wonderfully surprised when I realized about whom I was reading. It was a captivating tale, all the more so for having been based on true events, and although it did move slowly in parts, I was in no hurry. Sometimes the pleasure of reading is just to move slowly with an author through wonderful prose and interesting plot. This book did that. Towards the end I was so hooked I couldn't put the book down so that I was exhausted last night when I finally finished. I will look for more by Julian Barnes.
