Default Re: Book 32: THE LONELY PASSION OF JUDITH HEARNE by Brian Moore

Just to let you know that I gulped JH down in two sittings - accompanied, appropriately, with a bottle of red.

Don't really have anything to add to the comments on the thread, although I feel more empathy than pity towards Judith. (Possibly because a member of my book group gave me this book along with the statement "that could so easily have been me .....".)

There are, unfortunately, many Judiths in our C21st society and they're not all Irish Catholics. It's a more universal experience than that. The same is true of the Maddens of this world .... which explains the novel's continuing success.

Anyway I rate the novel and once I've seen the film, I shall post my book-to-movie blog entry.
