I think I’m finally getting the hang of this series. This was much faster to get back into than previous books. I recognised the recurring characters quickly and enjoyed the run up to the Second World War ramblings. Some of the older characters dying off, other relationships being developed. I liked the way this started with a look back to Nick’s childhood, which is kind of missing from the books as the first one started near the end of his schooldays. At this point I am beginning to see why the series is loved so much, up to now it’s seemed a collection of pieces but I’m now starting to see the picture come together. Looking forward to the second half of the series.
