    This is the first work by Barnes I ve given less than 4 stars, though I thought the first section detailing Martha s childhood and formation of character was great Then the book went downhill for me, as another character, Sir Jack, took center stage in the second, and longest, section I have no problem at all with unlikable characters I don t need to like a character to enjoy a work , but so many times when readers say they dislike books because there are no likable characters, I wonder if This is the first work by Barnes I ve given less than 4 stars, though I thought the first section detailing Martha s childhood and formation of character was great Then the book went downhill for me, as another character, Sir Jack, took center stage in the second, and longest, section I have no problem at all with unlikable characters I don t need to like a character to enjoy a work , but so many times when readers say they dislike books because there are no likable characters,...

    Now that I ve read Flaubert s Parrot and A History of the World in 10 1 2 Chapters both incredibly clever and wonderful books, I like this novel even less than I did when I read it as my first Julian Barnes a few years ago Everything I remember about it is cringe worthy, though I must admit I don t really remember that much a lot of gratuitous badly written sex and something about Englishness, American tourists and culture as entertainment It s just bizarre and somehow spiteful coming from Now that I ve read Flaubert s Parrot and A History of the World in 10 1 2 Chapters both incredibly clever and wonderful books, I like this novel even less than I...
