  • Okay I don t write as many reviews as I used to, and I know this one will be short But, as my first real reading of a George Bernard Shaw and in the Classics I really did enjoy this book I really took to his writing style not an over abundance of descriptive on surroundings and concentrating on the depth of some really interesting characters and interactions And, not just Mr Jack , there are some strongly portrayed female characters in this one Sometimes it s hard to imagine the closeness of the [...]




  • Entertaining Funny Kind of all over the place It didn t so much have an ending as just kind of stop as if the book didn t really know how to end and just threw up its hands that s it I ve had enough of this style.

  • An unsubtle take on the world of society and artists The book patronisingly rather than ironically suggests that true artists live on a different plane from mere mortals and therefore cannot love A sprawling book with some interestingly drawn characters, but overall a forgettable book, especially in comparison to others Fitzgerald, Woolfe that are much interesting.


  • Monday and Tuesday Night Book Clubs read this and we have a very interesting discussion about life at the time, characters who are difficult to like and what it means to be an artist.We gave it 6 7 5 7 3 6 4 6 6




  • The story of a handful of artists painters, musicians, poets during the Victorian era More feminist than most novels written by males, especially at that time.
