Series: Penguin Modern Classics. Winner of the Booker Prize, Penelope Lively's Moon Tiger is the tale of a historian confronting her own, personal history, unearthing the passions and pains that have defined her life. Anthony Thwaite (Introducer). Claudia Hampton, a beautiful, famous writer, lies dying in hospital. But, as the nurses tend to her with quiet condescension, she is plotting her greatest work: 'a history of the world. and in the process, my own'.

And that also means constantly redefining and refreshing exactly what makes a ‘classic’. That’s where Modern Classics come in. Since 1961 they have been an organic, ever-growing and ever-evolving list of books that we believe will continue to be read over and over again. They will be summarily deleted.

This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Anthony Thwaite. Claudia Hampton, a beautiful, famous writer, lies dying in hospital. But, as the nurses tend to her with quiet condescension, she is plotting her greatest work: 'a history of the world ... and in the process, my own'. Gradually she re-creates the rich mosaic of her life and times, conjuring up those she has known. There is Gordon, her adored brother; Jasper, the charming, untrustworthy lover and father of Lisa, her cool, conventional daughter; and Tom, her one great love, both found and lost in wartime Egypt.

I really enjoyed but I was confused by the other voices . In the end I do not think they add any greater level of understanding around C's character. I thought the Cairo chapter and the Western Desert chapters were fantastic but Jasper and the daughter were oddly understated. Maybe they were meant to be as a contrast to the events of 1941.

Wonderful use of language, unusual perspective on life as a woman during ww2. The switch from the narrator to the other characters was effective in showing the main character's inability to see what others felt and needed. Although the 'heroine'was not someone I'd like to spend time with, I was inclined to admire her unconventionality, courage and intellect. The book has some marvellously descriptive passages that I found myself re-reading to absorb their beauty.

Penelope Lively manages to impart some intense truths about life and love while - and in this lies the trick - keeping her reader spellbound. I loved the way she kept surprising me, and how she mined out the most delicious words. The only little niggle was her repeated use of words such as 'atavistic' and 'howling' - extremely effective on first encounter, not so much thereafter, especially in the mouth of another character. Nevertheless, I give this book five stars, for novelty, engagement and pure writing brilliance.

I love this book. I read it when I turned 50 and I , who was "just a mother" ( of 4) who left school at15, studied for a B.A in Literature (and finished it 3 years later). I loved it then and even more so now after a second reading.
Altad
This is a beautiful novel about a long, full, life. Lively uses a technique in which the point of view slips, seamlessly, from third to first person and back again, running back over the same moment or idea to create a "hovering" effect that allows us to linger there a little longer. This effect is never jarring; it's as smooth as silk.

Excellent. Follows a lively, interesting protagonist from the present, as she nears her end, with flashbacks to episodes from her childhood, college years, her time as a war correspondent in Egypt during WW II, and post war years as a writer. Interesting relationship with her brother.

I wish the book didn't end! Penelope Lively is a brilliant storyteller.
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I found it hard to concentrate and at times skimmed through long paragraphs. Overall I did like the book and would recommend it since Lively's characters are interesting and colourful and she does tell a memorable story. It may have just been me and think I will reread this in time to see if I find it a bit easier to stay engaged.
