I read this when it was on the Booker shortlist so probably won't join in. I thought it was brilliant and you and your readers are in for a treat. Look forward to reading your thoughts and comments next month.

Cornflower

Thankyou, Claire, I'm so glad to hear you rate it that highly!

Karoline

I have had this on my TBR shelves for far too long so I welcome the push to get it read

Barb

Thanks for this. I have just finished "Touch Not the Cat" and am preparing something to contribute which relates to the author.

Oops... That post was from me as done on my iPhone. BJM

I read it when it was on the Man Booker shortlist too and very much enjoyed it.
It was interesting to see that period from a different perspective and I think that you will enjoy it.
Simon Mawer's most recent book The Girl who Fell from the Sky is also a good read.

Janet

I read this a couple of years ago and thought it a stunning read. Not just about architecture, but about the people who commissioned the building of a fabulous house, the architect and the politics of an era, which effectively changed the world. I'm planning to pass it on to my son, an architect.

Great! I own this but haven't yet read it. I hope very much to take part in November's book club.

Cornflower

Good!

Cornflower

Very glad to hear you speak so highly of it, Janet.

Cornflower

I haven't read any Simon Mawer yet but I'm very much looking forward to discovering him.

Cornflower

Always happy to give a little push!

Cornflower

Excellent.
