Hmmm, well I finished it.

I think 'depressing' really sums it up. I thought Pym captured the characters well, gave us a feel for them and their lives, but I felt really so utterly despondent and down by the end of the book, I'm sorry to say.

It was rather a sad book I have to admit but spiced with humour such as when Lettie tried to take up reading about sociology or whatever it was, and Marjorie falling for the vicar who was trolling around the local women being fed. Plus, at the end Lettie's last thought was that she had realised she could do whatever she wanted rather than what people thought she should. I took heart from that I must admit.

Maybe my mood wasn't 'right' as I really didn't see the humour at all *sigh*

I agree that Lettie finally realising that was something on which we should all hold.
