"Not Quite Nice" - Celia Imrie
Having admired Celia Imrie in almost every role she has played, I was looking forward to reading this book, and ready to admire it. I was so, so disappointed. The novel has an intriguing set of characters and a plot which, if interwoven skilfully, could have produced a great novel.
Unfortunately, the ideas, the characters and the promising multi layered plot were only very loosely knit,if at all. Stitches were dropped everywhere, and some were added, as if the author had realised she had missed something out and hastened to correct it then and there, rather than taking the time to go back and correct anomalies.
I ploughed on to the end, wanting to know the outcome (which I had predicted correctly) The disappointment lingers.
