This was the last of the Penelope Lively's I picked up from the library and this was the best. A collection of short stories which were feisty, spicy and couldn't put downable.
The one about the action, reaction theory was fantastic in its imaginative way the story spiralled from a spilled pot of paint to what eventually happened. The stories are succint and to the point and it will all appeal to those who appreciate a dry sense of British humour! The stories themselves deal with the middle class of Britain and the characters some of them unimaginative and dull but it is that very dullness that sparks the interest of the reader.
Brilliant short read.
On a sad note our dog Dottie died yesterday. Just one and a half years old she will be very sadly missed by us.
