Product Details. Inspired by Your Browsing History. Related Links Website. The only thing the book didn't do is make me cry. I came close but I didn't really have a good cry as I have had while reading other novels by Waters. Glad that I read it, though. I expected to like this book, but it was too tedious and confusing.
There was nothing wrong with the research, although at times I felt like the author's preference for the Victorian era showed and influenced her perception of wartime and post-war England. My big beef, though was the fact that the reverse plot didn't ever finish. Instead, it was like getting all the backstory without knowing where the characters were going. I struggled to find character development as much as it was just a tangled web of relationships.
Pure writing genius. What remarkable book! Sarah Waters is a literary marvel.
The Night Watch (Modern Plays) Sarah Waters: Methuen Drama
This book is written Backwards -- begins in -- about pages worth of full character development and plot evolution, then we get to When I had completed the first section, I was concerned that I might not care to continue.
After all, I already knew "what happened. How does she do it? She sets remarkable challenges for herself, and comes through with aces, every time.
Tipping the Velvet
What a book!! Audio CD Verified Purchase.
I am a Sarah Waters fan. I have read 3 of her novels now and thoroughly enjoy them. She is an outstanding story teller. She has the ability to transport you into the time period and feel that you are living with the characters.
The story takes place from in London. It involves 4 main characters, whose lives connect in wartime London. Her descriptions of the bombings and rescues during World War Two are very vivid. You care about the characters she presents, and feel their pain with them as they experience losses. Strong women are portrayed doing difficult jobs such as ambulance drivers, rescue workers and mechanics because it is during the war.
This is a story of relationships, historical detail and twists that will keep you interested from start to finish. The audio-tape is presented with English accents. It makes it even more real. Paperback Verified Purchase. The Night Watch is about a small group of women and men, some of whom know each other and some who do not, whose lives become connected during World War II. Some are homosexual, at a time of less tolerance than our own. The book also deals with abortion in that time.
The book picks up the characters' lives in the years just after the war and then fills in the rest of the story by returning to the war years, during the bombing raids on London.
The Night Watch
For me this was an intriguing way to structure the book. This is my fourth Sarah Waters novel and she has never disappointed as an observer of human beings, a master of suspense, and a depicter of history.
