Week #14: The Night Watch, a review

52 weeks of reading and writing

Finally, a book review: Sarah Waters’ The Night Watch, a riveting and most peculiar novel, mostly because the story is told in reverse.

This is what the blurb has to say about it:

Tender and tragic, set against the turbulent backdrop of wartime Britain…. Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked-out streets, illicit liaisons and sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, this is an astonishing novel.

To find out what I thought, read the full review here.
