Every Eye - Isobel English This was alright. Not as good as I'd hoped. The Persephone site talks about how the end will make you want to re-read it immediately, but for me it didn't. The writing is beautiful, and I quite like the back and forth between the past and the present, but I couldn't really care for any of the characters and so it was hard to want to finish. Luckily it's a short book and I finished easily, but not for wanting to know what happens next. This, like the Poirot books, makes me wish I knew French because there are interjections in French and I have no idea what they say...
