You may have convinced me to try Barker again. I read part of the first book when I was working in a bookstore in London in the mid-90s and we were selling tons of copies, and it didn't grab my interest--the narrative felt a bit flat, too concerned with historical detail.

But looking back, I realize how little I knew about the period and about the people Barker was writing about. I suspect I'd enjoy the book much, much more now.


I think you would, too, Levi. I will say the first book is much better than the third (the Booker winner).
