Although I enjoyed this novel for the most part, there were some issues that made it difficult for me to give it five stars. The main issue in my mind, as in other reviewers', was the sudden conclusion of the novel; I was left wanting to know more.
Very interesting to read a Hilary Mantel book that wasn't enormous! This slight story of Carmel and her 'friends' is beautifully written and I was quite intrigued with how the story would turn out. Unfortunately, something eventually happens and then the book just finishes - rather abruptly from my point of view. So not a particularly satisfying read except from a literary perspective - most of Mantel's writing is incredibly evocative and it is worth reading the book for that reason alone.
