A good take on what can happen when families and time collide The insight into the fine lines between cult and belief, religion and tribes , family and loyalty the ordinary and the extraordinary continued throughout the book Kept me intrigued throughout but not a fan of backdrop of fundamentalism in US ugly scary things don't really grab me ! Family and the strength and weaknesses of family was this books clear mantra Snakes were a horrible addition parts of story descended into Indiana Jones type scenarios skipped those bits !! Loved the narration excellent like listening to a radio play !

Belgravia and Downton Abbey now seem vilified

I'm not an expert reviewer so please excuse a simple viewpoint In listening to this tale of Britain's 70s posh crowd Past Imperfect' you get a sense as an Aussie how burdened or blessed they are with class ! It's a sourness that can turn a generation into failures But through the veil of structure to weave a story it became evident that despite wealth inherited earned or given people are just as brave vulnerable and true or not as anyone But I'd rather be rich than poor and found myself envious of the wealth inherited and the opportunities it would give to be generous and influential in a good way Loved the fish soup scenario it has to be a series just to see that scene !!!
