Uncle Paul Paperback. Listening in the Dusk Hardcover. I read this book about once a year because it is so delicious.

Celia Fremlin (1914–2009) read classics and philosophy at Oxford's Somerville College. Her WWII experiences with the Mass Observation Project influenced her first book, War Factory, which reflected the attitudes of plant workers at a Wiltshire-based radar equipment factory. Fremlin wrote 16 novels in the course of four decades, in addition to a book of poetry and three volumes of collected stories. Her novel The Hours Before Dawn won the Edgar Award in 1960.

I enjoyed reading this book. Nothing too gory, very suspenseful and really made me thing about how people are. I would recommend. Writer is English or at least the setting is English so I had to look up quite a few unfamiliar terms. The beauty of the Kindle :)

Most of the characters were not interesting to me. The story meandered, and the ending was "so?"

Could have used a bit more work on storyline but very readable!

I found it very disappointing, as I love Fremlin's other books. The characters and situations were completely unbelievable.
