    MOBI A Compass Error MOBI Á A Compass PDF/EPUB or È shop peters.de compass kindle, error book, A Compass pdf, A Compass Error EpubDeceived by the fulsome odes of some New Yorker critic I took myself to the local used bookstore than a decade ago and bought four of Bedford's novels Three down I loathe this author If anything A Compass Error is worse than A Favourite of the Gods whose plot it continues But read it if you like pretentious writing and lesbian coming of ageThe plot itself especially the twist at the end is moderately intriguing and it would have been nice to read this novel if it had been written by say Edith WhartonNot that it really matters but no one can agree on when the story is set The plot covers two months in a summer in the south of France Brenda Wineapple on the back cover says it's the early 1930s The Goodreads description says it's the late 1930s The author herself in an introduction incorrectly states it's the late 1920s I will settle it

    MOBI A Compass Error MOBI Á A Compass PDF/EPUB or È shop peters.de compass kindle, error book, A Compass pdf, A Compass Error EpubThe second of the two books A Compass Error is a kind of reflective take on the first book Instead of just simply retelling or continuing the story the focus is on the youngest daughter of all the generations now looking back over her life Both as an interview and a potential book Flavia is trying to make sense of her young adulthood her mother her family and their shared history together as she writes about themI thought that the kind of weird carnivalesue nature and tone of the first book is completely subdued in a really good way in this second book It doesn’t change anything that happens in the first one nor does it rewrite its history Instead what this book does is take a sober look at what came before In some ways it’s a reflection of England between the wars the effect of mixed heritage on one’s identity and trying to find stability after an obviously unstable childhood The sobering up of t

    MOBI A Compass Error MOBI Á A Compass PDF/EPUB or È shop peters.de compass kindle, error book, A Compass pdf, A Compass Error EpubI greatly enjoyed Sybille Bedford's autobiographical 'uicksands' and her biography of Aldous Huxley so was keen to try a novel But though I got through this uickly and avidly I ultimately found the story unsatisfactory and rather strange Perhaps it has dated slightly; the premise of a schoolgirl on her own in the South of France in the early 1930s who falls for an older woman and is manipulated into revealing a secret I don't want to reveal the only 'twist' in the tale is not as shocking as it might have been once and most of the characters seem strangely absent their backgrounds sketched in two dimensionally I never really understood the forces or emotions driving them It reads like an odd little interlude in a girl's life when it should have been an emotional 'coming of age' turning point The last few pages briefly sum up what happened to the characters in the years that followed which is slightly deflat
