Anita Brookner is a novelist whose forte is the meticulous examination of the lives of unremarkable women. Brookner's novels evoke a near contemporary, Barbara Pym, and the tradition of Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte. But they reflect the realities of a generation later than that of Pym. For Brookner, a simple, pacific femininity no longer provides a respite from a danger that lurks throughout her world

If you are of a certain age, you will appreciate the theme here of summing up, taking inventory of your life. I love that she explores this theme but offers no pat answers, no judgements. In the explication of a friendship between two very dear old friends, Hartmann and Fibich, she tackles the significant issues that constitute a life: Love, friendship, children, memory, God, destiny, and more, and she does it all in a short book with very little plot. This is a psychological novel so the action is largely provided by what the characters feel, how they think. I could see my life in them, particularly when I contemplated Hartmann and Fibich as a composite. This is a great book, blessed with perfection.

I love Anita Brookner's work. Her intricate, melancholy, character studies always take place in a very particular little corner of a forgotten London— London as it was twenty years ago but it may as well be fifty. When we sadly, lost Brookner a few weeks ago, it mentioned in one of her obituaries that she'd said this novel was her own favourite. I can see why; it's a miniature master piece. The characters stayed with me long after I'd read the final page. If you like Brookner's novels please don't miss this one. If you've never read one of her books, this would be a lovely introduction.

Another quiet and beautiful book by A.B. She reminds me of E. Dickinson or Proust as she possessed such a rich inner life as expressed through her characters, even if her own peregrinations were limited and her actual life experiences few by comparison. *JQ

Dull and wordy....why this author gathers such acolades remains a mystery to me. The cover art was better than the book.

Seldom have I cared less about every single character in a novel. I fail to grasp what all the positive reviews saw in this (blessedly) short novel.

Anita Brookner has a sumptuous, visually acute descriptive quality and keen insight that make you want to linger over each sentence. Not much happens and yet you get a full sense of these characters' nostalgia, loss loneliness, and fulfillment.

I liked it.
I really wanted to like this book. The premise sounded enticing, but I haven't been able to finish the novel. I have never read Anita Brookner before, but nothing happens in this book. I may try again at a later date, but I found the majority of the characters unsympathetic and just very flat.
