Giving Margaret Drabble another try.

The dark flood risesMany years ago I attempted to read The Red Queen.  I found that I just couldn’t get into it so I stopped.  I went back to the book a few years later and tried again but still couldn’t get into it so the book went to the secondhand bookshop.

I read a review for The Dark Flood Rises and it sounded as though it would be a good book for me to read being as I am in my “senior years’.

I can thoroughly recommend it for those who are in their retired years as it gives various pictures of how old age is approached by various people.  It is not at all maudlin’ in fact there are some quite humorous parts.  I really enjoyed it and I am glad that I have given Ms Drabble another chance albeit with a different book.

You can read several comprehensive reviews here.
