The Levant trilogy
I 'read' WWII history, and when I find fiction on that topic, which is to mind great, I am chuffed.
And when I remember my 'Late Mum - 23 years ago now', saying she liked this story and loved and disliked a character at at the same time, I might be onto something great. She didn't read much, but when I gave it to her, she finished it very quickly.
I recon. the 2 trilogies are great. I read them a long time ago and you have inspired me to re-read at least the "Balkan Trilogy".
Sorry if I'm not making too much sense, but you have triggered a memory meme :-)
After a few pages of the Levant, I have the impression that her writing is better there (not that it wasn't fine in the first--she really was great at lodging a character in the mind).
Anyway, based on the title BT and the number of times I saw it, the reason I hadn't yet got to it was only the rather banal descriptions I found, so that I couldn't finally decide yes, I will try it. I'm glad I did. Beyond other factors, that it is all delivered through the lens of a woman was refreshing.
I did indeed read Your review of the Levant Trilogy" but didn't notice 'much' of a preferance for one T over the other.
Please explain? (Sorry, that phrase in Australia does have a few rotten connotations re. politics, not intended here at all! This note was only for any Aussies reading this post)
