Britain's most readable novelist turns out another pseudohistorical novel set throughout the 20th century, about, and in this case narrated by, a woman. I think he may be in a rut to some extent, but he's using great events and interesting people and churning them together.

I read it in 24 hours and enjoyed every page. I've read all of his novels to date, The consistently excellent writing and characterisation stand out to me, and he actually tells stories as opposed to Smarty Marty Amis and his writing experiments. Maybe he's a bit too middlebrow to take out the big lit prizes, oh well.
