    Hardcover´ Sweet William eBook ñ sweet mobile, william mobile, Sweet William eBook'Sweet William' by Beryl Bainbridge 4 stars8 out of 10I have read several books by Beryl Bainbridge in the past so was pleased to have the opportunity to read this novel'Sweet William' tells the story of Ann a rather naive young woman whose life is turned upside down on meeting William a self declared playwright The story is told primarily from Ann's point of view but the reader again and again suspects and eventually knows just how much she is deluding herselfBainbridge writes with wit and verve I found the account of the harvest festival very funny and the description

    Hardcover´ Sweet William eBook ñ sweet mobile, william mobile, Sweet William eBookSometimes I really enjoy Bainbridge’s sharp often acerbic short novels but at other times they just don’t work for me and I’m afraid this is one that didn’t work It’s a banal enough tale Ann is recently engaged but then is swept off her feet by the dynamic and charismatic William and suddenly all the security and certainties of her life are upended She’s powerless to resist him – and I just cou

    Hardcover´ Sweet William eBook ñ sweet mobile, william mobile, Sweet William eBookIn Sweet William Beryl Bainbridge takes the darkly comedic tone that she previously used in her novel The Bottle Factory Outing and turns it into something even bitingly ironic and disturbing This marked change is in part due to the focused subject matter of this novel The novel’s unassertive protagonist Ann finds herself swept up into a bizarre relationship with a playwright despite being engaged to a professor I think the comedy of this novel in part stems from the fact that Ann has somehow caught the attention of two relatively intelligent and academic men despite the fact that she is relatively dull and mousy in comparison In some ways she is very much like Bainbridge’s character Brenda in The Bottle Factory Outing Essentially Ann is a s

    Hardcover´ Sweet William eBook ñ sweet mobile, william mobile, Sweet William eBookI found this slim comedy at a secondhand book shop At first I wasn't sure what to make of itit seems that the author feels disdain for all of her characters and wants her readers to feel the same way Once I accepted that the story was about lousy and weak willed loser characters making bad choices and that the book is satire I really got into the story An odd but funny and mean look at the aftermath of the Sexual Revolution in the 1970s
