Arthur and George. Julian Barnes, 2006

I have to admit the book was a bit disappointing. The introductory chapters were extraordinary -especially the part on George growing up in the vicarage. Barne's potential for mimicing a nineteenth century writer's style is amazing. The rest though was somewhat boring and banal, the intended suspense did not work, the intricacies of the supernatural and Arthur's fascination with the above are more ridiculous than anything else.
