I've read "The Stranger's Child" and though I enjoyed it and would recoomend it, I don't feel it was as strong as previous works by this author. The trouble comes from it's length and that the characters and situations in the last 100+ pages failed to maintain this readers interest. This needed a good editor; with trims and cuts this would be wholly brilliant, instead of mostly so.

I read and thoroughly enjoyed Carol Birch's Turn Again Home, a very old-fashioned yet absorbing read. I'm looking forward to this new one.

I'd agree with the first comment, a good book, but not Hollinghurst's best. Having already won a Booker I do wonder whether this is worthy of a second win. Feel free to stop by and read my review: http://tinyurl.com/4xwxdpp
