    Paperback ✓ London Triptych ePUB Ø london book, triptych download, London Triptych PDFEPUBNever have I ever read a novel like this one and never do I think I would ever again The feeling upon trailing off from the last word and flipping the page to discover it blank and cold is akin to finishing The Secret History If not for the intrinsic differences that lay in the heart of the books that separate them from each other I would say that both books are similar; but they are fundamentally not so I will stop going down this tempting path and strike one out of my own makingSo Where do I startDespite

    Paperback ✓ London Triptych ePUB Ø london book, triptych download, London Triptych PDFEPUBWhat can I say It's just a beautiful piece of writing When you read in reviews that each word is `carefully crafted' I think they must have been thinking about this work because I was taken by how many of the descriptions in the book are so well conveyed in a few short colourful intense words I found myself writing them down which I rarely do as I didn't want to interrupt the narrative The plot is well described by others so I won't repeat it but it's the sense of time and place which is so well evoked especially the 1950's which is conveyed in all its claustrophobia The character Colin feels trapped in an open prison which is probably an accurate description of the times One line that did stay with me was when Colin 1950's chose not to pass judgement on his model for his prostitution work as 'he gives up his body for money and pleasure while
