Write a review...Hmm. This was just very odd, really. It was a slow starter, taking some time before Oscar & Lucinda met, and there was a certain rhythm to the early section of the book, with intiially long passages being concentrated on Oscar, then on Lucinda. This pace increased until the point they actually met, but there after it just got very strange. I got to the stage where I simply stopped caring about either of them. it was our first reading group book and none of us liked it, so that was a very short discussion!
