Am I a spy thriller? Am I historical fiction? Am I a love story? A character study? An experimental mix of all those things? As a plot I suspected I wouldn't like it and I was wrong A two faced spy in wartime London working for the enemy Nazi Germany? How could I possibly find anything likable in his character feel with him when his lover despairs of him? Well I could As Elizabeth Bowen puts it in the beginning the characters in her story are impossible from a literary standpoint for they ought to be credible above all They are not They engage in their own ideas of the universe and f

    The Heat of the Day MOBI Õ of the MOBI ☆ The heat ebok, The Heat epub, of the download, Heat of the ebok, The Heat of the Day PDFThis is a brittle opaque story of a strange kind of `love triangle' set in the dark glamour of war time London The melodramatic plot is contained and constrained within a quiet very restrained sense of telling so that the narrative seems to be in tension with itselfThere is a muted intensity to all personal interactions and this is the kind of book where we need to pay attention to every word spoken to every tiny gesture made to almost decode the currents between peopleIf you come to this book expecting either a war time romance or a spy story then you will inevitably be disappointed So much of this book is obscure based around things not said actions not taken deeds which don't happen and the book is haunted by ghosts not just the dead but the bombed churches which cannot ring their bells and the dea
