Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a really weird book. It's kind of the opposite of a murder mystery. The main character Lise travels to Europe to die. She spends the day walking around the city with an elderly woman and enjoying the day all the while looking for the man who will carry out the deed. I have a feeling I will be returning to this book.
This remains a powerful novella in its depiction of a truly mad woman. Some scenes are riotous, some are downright scary. But, everything about the book is memorable and unrelenting. Spark remains one of the best 20th century British writers.
Disliked it intensely. Didn't make sense to me at all. Creepy. Don't understand at all why someone would chose to write something like this.
