5.0 out of 5 stars Is this Spark's most disturbing metafiction, Dec 7 1999
By 
Andrew Cooley (Birmingham, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Drivers Seat Bibelot (Paperback)
From the start of this story it is clear that the protagonist - Lise (pronounced Lees, or Lies?) - is living in a fantasy.
The foreshadowing, sometimes subtle sometimes obvious, allows Spark to play around with the genres of the thriller, the detective story and the holiday romance. But it is in the self-consciously deliberate way that Muriel Spark at the same time obscures and reveals Lise to us that the genius of the author is demonstrated.
It's not a happy holiday read, it is an addictive and provocative story, told with considerable narrative skill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spark at her best!, Nov. 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Drivers Seat Bibelot (Paperback)
This is one of my all-time favourites. From the very beginning it is clear that there's definitely something wrong with the main character of this book. Very disturbing, yet irresistable.
