(7.5) The author created a strong sense of place i.e. Paris and characterisation. The narrative voice is convincing but some of the tale is a little implausible.

Completely absorbing story like one of those novels I read as a child and wanted to be left alone to read my book. Lev's story and his character are sympathetically and well drawn. I particularly liked the cooking descriptions and London environment. Highly recommended.

The Gustav Sonata was an unusual book, but one that I really enjoyed reading, in fact, I stayed up half the night to finish it.

The book is set in Switzerland, before, during, and after the Second World War. Although the book branches out to include other characters and other relationships, the focal point of the book is the friendship, since kindergarten, of Gustav, a poor boy with a dead father and a critical, selfish, anti-Semitic and hostile mother, and of Anton, a well-off Jewish boy with a loving family, who are, nonetheless, pressuring Anton to become a concert pianist despite his chronic and overpowering stage fright.

It was interesting to get a glimpse of why Switzerland remained neutral during the Second World War. The book was very good at helping the reader understand the extent of the deprivations of poverty, and the quiet luxuries of wealth. We are permitted to see into the minds of many of the book's characters, including those of Gustav's parents, and to understand what made Gustav's mother the virago that she becomes.

I liked the book very much and recommend it.

This book gripped me from the first. This is a tale set in the Cevennes, a still isolated area of Southern France. Here are farms - 'Mas', still worked by the families who have lived here for generations, or else bought by foreigners from England, the Low Countries, who want to 'live the dream'.

We meet alcoholic Aramon, his lonely sister Audrun, who are Cevennes through and through. We meet long term English residents Veronica and her lover Kitty. And then we meet Anthony, Veronica's brother, who thinks he'd like to move to France.

All have secrets. All have lives that are in some ways unsatisfactory. And from the moment that Anthony arrives in France, a series of events, with unlooked for and utterly unwanted consequences is set in motion.

I was involved, even as I found each character in some way unlikeable - there are no dashing heroes and heroines here.

I believed in the lives of each of these characters, and wanted to know how the story would unfold. I relished the description of this part of the Cevennes. I read on willingly, enjoying the story, and how it was told.
