The MillstoneThe Millstone by Margaret Drabble

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Some slight charms in the representation of the heroine’s social life, but that’s it. Doesn’t live up to its potential, such as it is. Floppy, drippy, mimsy, aimless.

What I’ve been reviewing – The Realms of Gold by Margaret Drabble

The Realms of GoldThe Realms of Gold by Margaret Drabble

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Mimsy Hampstead-liberal wandering aimless fluff. And I use the word ‘fluff’ advisedly, as one who has no idea of the Goodreads policy on effing and jeffing. Drabble actually goes in for some meta idiocy at points, admitting she’s making it up as she goes along, has changed her mind about some plot points and doesn’t know what she’s doing. Tip: DON’T DO THAT.

If you’re still going to read it, I have no idea what to say to you.
